Ithink we have told you all before, from time to time Razzi and I head off to the Land of The Early to Bed to collect or drop off a car. We call it that because we once stayed overnight and discovered the whole place closes at 8pm and goes to bed; including all the chippies, off licenses – in fact, you name it and it was closed by 8pm. That is Ripon for you. Today we returned to the general area but a little further along the M62 towards Leeds. I don’t know about RIPPON, we would like to re-christen that place RIPOFF or The Land of the Two Quid Lucozade. Furthermore, when we say we purchased a bottle, we do not mean a monstrous two litre jobby with enough Lucozade to drown in – we are talking about the smallest bottle you can buy which usually retails for around 99p. At Leeds Railway Station they sell the same bottle for TWO QUID!
