Leamington Spa to Irthlingborough
We started the day with some nice fresh croissants in my friend Sue’s kitchen and then went for a brisk walk in the Warwickshire countryside with her adorable puppy. Meanwhile the husband took a brisk walk into Leamington Spa for a nice Saturday morning pint.
We said our goodbyes and headed off to Irthlingborough after lunch. This was a quick, easy journey via the A45, M45, M1 and a bit more A45. Along the way we amused ourselves by wondering whether the people of Irthlingborough referred to themselves as “Irthlings”. We arrived at my brother-in-law’s house to a warm welcome and a full Saturday roast.
Our hosts were very keen for us to actually sleep in their house as they have plenty of spare room. We probably could have had showers as well, but we had started rationing out the clean clothes for the rest of the trip, so it didn’t seem worth it!
