Boxing Day Miscellany, Hordle and Barton-on-Sea, Hampshire - 26th December 2005

After a quiet Christmas day staying at home under a personal cloud of gloom, Nosher heads off on the 220 miles journey to New Milton on the south coast to meet up with Sean, Michelle, god-daughter Sydney and old mate Phil. The first rendezvous is round Phil's parents' house in Hordle. Afterwards, Nosher heads off round to Sean's to crash for the night before heading back to Suffolk via the "road to hell", otherwise known as the M25, which is up to its usual tricks and is depressingly solid all the way from the M3 to the M11
