Here's some pics from the weekend but he warned a lot of them are pictures of busses :P



We went to Market Harborough, where they were running a fleet of vintage busses out to village pubs which were taking part in a big beer festival:

Silly story: Paul and I were talking about if we got married and how fun it would be to do the reception at Barrow Hill and have everyone go up on vintage busses. Then I remembered that when I was a teen at college there was an ad for a company that hired old busses for weddings and I had this massive rant about how the only person who'd want that was some rich person who'd never had to take a bus anywhere regularly, like Marie Antionette dressing up as a milkmaid. You see at the time I had these hellish journeys too and from Plymouth five days a week, the morning ones it was hard to get a seat because they only ran a single decker, and the evening ones which were double deckers were damp with seats that smelt of mould and if it was raining the roof leaked and there was a big puddle in the aisle. And you'd always get some irritating random person perstering you. So busses were not my fave thing at the time. Fast forward 10-ish years....

Mind you I'd rather they had toilets and you could take booze on them...
