    Well I am all packed up, batteries charged and fridge loaded!

    Looking at the forecast map it seems that the only dry place this weekend is the north west of Scotland so I am aiming that way.

    A couple of hours and then hopefully I can escape all the rain.

    Is anyone else risking it and heading off this weekend?

    Well, you don't have far to travel... :Laughing:

    It was raining earlier today, more like a drizzle , but now a beautiful evening on the Suffolk Coast

    We're at the western end of Dumfries & Galloway, just outside Gatehouse of Fleet, yesterday was a real scorcher, hubby got burnt in the garden cutting the grass:RollEyes:

    However, the M74 end of D & G and several parts of Ayrshire got absolutely soaked, the roads around the M77 got flooded, as did Edinburgh. Sadly today we've had a bit of rain and it's quite windy, but we seem to have escaped the heavy, torrential rain that other parts of the country have had.:Cool:
    Where is all this rain coming from?:Eek!:

    We're sitting in a campsite (charging everything up) in John O'Groats, theres not a cloud in sight, sun splitting the stones, we,ve had no rain since we got here, last Sunday and hardly any midges, theres a few but with Skin so Soft by Avon, no problems.
    Come on up we're have a mini meet,:Rofl1::thumb:

    We'd love to but things going on this week and we've given up on Rutland, Long Marston or wherever. I feel a failure but it's just a bad year. I can't face taking two doggies away in our van when we've just had our re-upholstered doings back today. Have a lovely time up there, it seems to be the driest place in the UK. :BigGrin:

    There you are. so where can we go on Monday ish where there will be sunshine. Bearing in mind, I have a granddaughter, 7th birthday on Thursday, but, to be honest, she's not so worried nowadays, now she has her chummies (that's fine but puts you in your place). :BigGrin:
