Dont forget to pack your midge spray. Have missed you recently, you sound like you are very very busy and the holiday cant come too soon.

Have a great time.

Hi all, bit late today as son visited this morning to say he was the driver of the van on Thursday that overturned and blocked the A500. Fortunately he is ok with no scratches at all. They didnt tell us till today so that it wouldnt spoil our day out, especially as he was fine. We are all in a state of shock with the - what ifs etc!!!

Here is my very late offering

Carol xx

(Stephanie Short) #19

Yes just getting to grips with everything. Got him and wife coming for dinner today so hopefully all in the past and trying not to think of the worst case scenario and just that he is still in one piece and with us.

Here is mine today
