The last bank holiday of 2004.
With an invite to Paul and Sarah's wedding in Derby on Sunday 29th we were going to be spending the bank holiday weekend away from home. However, having not had a weekend at home since around mid July, Dan wanted to slob about at home and only venture up North on the day of the wedding. How could I not agree!
After our Friday night
drinking sesh, Saturday was quite a subdued affair. We ventured no further than town and spent the evening in front of the telly after a slap up beef dinner, yum!
The plans for Sunday were thrown out the window when Skene reached Paddington and realised there were no trains to Reading. He could however manage to get a train to Derby so we arranged to meet him there and went off for lunch without him.
Around 2.5 hours in the car from Reading and we find ourselves at Derby train station. Our only problem now is getting out of the city. And we thought Reading was bad! We eventually arrive at our home for the night at the Derby City Centre Travelodge
and after a quick change (well, for me anyway) we find ourselves in the pub next door for a "quick one" before heading to the wedding
Much drinking takes place over the next few hours before it's time to head home to bed.
And now the bank holiday weekend is over. All I want is my bed!
