Don’t know if many TDF’ers went/are going, but I went down today and had a great time.
Bought some shiny stuff and a few bits for my camera, listened to a few very informative talks, and met some nice folk, including a guy from Bristol who very kindly offered me a spare ticket he had after I told him I hadn’t been emailed mine. I didn’t need to take him up on his offer as ticket office soon sorted it out, but it was a lovely gesture. There were plenty of folk spending plenty of money, even though the show itself is definitely getting smaller, but I had an enjoyable day out.
And I managed to drop into my beloved Steel City on the way home for a pot of tea and a catch-up with my big sister, then came incredibly close to running my van out of diesel on the way home, then had a hilarious (hands free) conversation with a complete stranger who rang my number by mistake! All in all, a good day out
