    Silly question but is there a better day to go? Is Sunday quieter at all?

    Slim chance of going but would have to bring the baby so whatever is the quieter day would be better.

    Well I drove the three hours from N Wales to York on Sunday. I booked an overnight stay in a hotel. I was on my way to the venue this afternoon when darling baby had a meltdown in the car so we had to abandon it and head home!

    So near yet so far! At least the weather was nice and we managed a visit to the NRM!
