A Trip to Spreyton, Devon - 24th December 2012

For the first time in several years, it's Christmas away as we head down to Spreyton in Devon to stay with Mother for a few days. The journey down is pretty good, apart from one closed juntion on the M4. However, we do stop off at a deserted Reading services only minutes after it had re-opened having been closed for the day due to flooding.
