A visit to Swindon today for a pre-Christmas part-family get together. A wonderful Christmas lunch meal prepared by our daughter, which left us quite full for the evening. We stayed at the Mercure Hotel in South Marston which was comfortable and very reasonable thanks to online booking. We arrived at the hotel with just enough time to take a quick stroll around the village and visit the attractive church before the sunset.
The hotel has a gym and pool so I am able to keep up the exercise component of my 20 day resolution in some comfort and style.
Last night, I was grandly entertained by the last two episodes of “The Killing”. I thought it quite brilliant, but I will not spoil it for anyone yet to see it by discussing any of the details. I am not giving anything away by noting that the story’s twists and turns were totally engaging, even with sub-titles.
