    Is that the Aldi one ?

    I rate the Aldi one as just as good or better than Baileys.

    Anyway, that heatwave, you forget it is on 30th August 2021.

    Sitting here at home in Pembrokeshire, gazing out at a wet, miserable garden, the thought of sitting in what promises to be a boggy Carmarthen showground doesn't quite fill me with delight. Sorry to be all doom and gloom, but the forecast for this neck of the woods isn't exactly promising ...... :cry:

    We are fed this heatwave nonsense every year around this time just when many are deciding whether to stay at home or travel abroad. Personally I think it will be another Indian summer starting towards the end of September. Be safe take your brollies to Carmarthen.:rain::rain::rain::Smile:

    drove past the Carmarthen showground about 2 hours ago... on the way home ( regrettably cant stop ). it looked all soggy and wet and it was more than a bit persisting it down.

    you'll need more than a little tipple of Irish mist! not to notice.

    have a great weekend if your going:thumb:

    I've just seen it on the news, the RNLI are rushing their best boats to the area for Saturday. With luck, they said, a couple of hover craft too.

    Couldn't sit in the window seat of my Camarthen hotel breakfast room as the sun was shining in too brightly...

    Fair weather motorhomers are woosies!

    Good news.

    They think the boats will not be needed now, just sending the hovercrafts. They have practiced the technique of one hovercraft either side of a motorhome, ropes underneath and lift it out of a bog. The bad news is it won't work on an RV but they can organise a Sikorsky Sky Crane within a few days.

    Don't Panic, it may be Wales but you can survive.

    As long as you don't get a leek in your MH.

    He who laughs last.

    We are sat listening to the rain on the roof in Ashbourne at the Thundersprint event. The good news is our front wheels are on the old taxiway. It's not looking good for the racing over the WE :cry:
