On Sunday we drove to Tatton Park in Cheshire, which was home of the Lords Egerton until 1958.

Beautiful mansion, gardens, estate, deer, blah, blah, blah.

Italian Garden.

Massive topiary.

Lovely!

Anyway, the best thing was driving there with my new Satellite Navigation system, called a TomTom. It’s fantastic – I’ve never used a Sat Nav before. It lets you know exactly where you’re going, what lane to take, and how long until you get to your destination. It even tells you when you’re speeding. What’s more, I downloaded Homer Simpson’s voice for the directions. He says things like “Awww – toll road! Why do things always cost things? I hope you have change because I spent all mine on chocolate cigars”. It’s brilliant.
