A waste of time!

Today I got up early and took the van off to Slough, It had to be there by 9.00am. A Dr Who event was being held at an hotel.
 There the van parked up outside the hotel, the traders awaited the crowds inside in one of the function rooms with all their Si-Fi goods for sale. Tickets cost £25 to get in and then more money to spend on all that loverly merchandise.
One slight snag, a very poor turn out, yes plenty of people in the hotel but not there for the Dr Who convention. I left just after 11am. You could not even blame the weather, it was dry for once!
