Well the news came this week that I get a day off on Christmas day as the questmaster has deemed it a TQ holiday.

Yes folks no quest so I get a lie in on a Sunday for the first time in over five years.

Todays quest is number 50 of the year and Sophies 44th effort on the road (although she only did half on DC's last day). She was around the highways and byways of the county alongside Navigator Ian in the trusty Radio Car. David Whiteley, was pumped on arabica to the point of bursting was driving the desk. Questmaster and his new trailer for the show well under way (we'll hear it in the new year) had his work done with the clues. Glam in attendance was  next weeks runner Anna Morton. We commenced the mornings antics in West Lynn. And got to the treasure at Marham Christmas Cracker Event
