Helen finishes for Half term holiday at school at 4.30pm and I finish work at 5pm and a quick nip home for both of us to get changed and we are off.  Hopefully all the packing has been done (monkey especially) and we are off.....

Two and 1/2 hours later (traffic permitting) and we should be just north of the M25 north of London just off the A1 at St Neots.

Our first night on holiday and at the Premier Inn !  Not quite what we are about to experiance but its a room for the night.  Pub on site which is the advantage of the Premier Inn's.

That was the blog I wrote before we set off.....

So a live update.  Currently sitting in first class lounge at Gatwick waiting for plane, so a quick update.

Well talk about "Apollo 13... I think that was our glich !"

Typed in postcode into Sat Nav last night to find Premier Inn at St Neots, got on road and followed.  3 hours later we ended up in the middle of the countryside near Bedford !!!  Whoops Robin did not watch closely enough when he tapped on the Sat Nav screen for the postcode... I chose the wrong one !

If you look at the map above we ended up near Brickhill, so a round trip of 40 minutes from St Neots (we had already driven past the Premier Inn) to Brickhill and back again !  LOL !!!

Anyway ended back and went straight into the Crown Pub for a couple of pints, a good meal and to bed....
