Warning: This post was published more than 5 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This is the view from the independently-owned and frequently highly-rated Tebay services, on the M6. It might look pretty, but the last time I was here I paid about £7 for a chicken curry that was inedible. Today, I’ve just stuck with a bag of Mini Eggs – though, as a public health doctor, I’m not sure I should admit to either of those choices!
