Headed down to Houghton to meet Katie & Lee for a 3pm pick up. The Wetherspoons of choice this week was the William Peverel in Bulwell. We arrived just before six o'clock so plenty of time for food and a few drinks before the 2 mile journey onto Basford. (Just a pity I'm having a self imposed ale ban!) Return trek home went without a hitch, so back home for 25 minutes past midnight.
