This past weekend, Jon, Emily and I went up to York for Jon's sister Penny's 60th birthday celebration. Penny and her husband Malcolm are over on holiday from South Africa and were staying with Penny's son Rob; his wife, Alison and their son Robbie.
On Friday morning Jon's brother, Martin, arrived to pick us up and we left around 11am. I won't go into all the details but it took us 5 1/2 hours to get there, including a half hour stop for lunch and a few traffic delays. We stopped off at the motel to check in and have a quick drink before heading round to Rob and Ali's to see everyone. Martin's car

The motel was quite comfortable, did a lovely cooked breakfast and had great coffee ;-)
