    Pretty much the same in Basingstoke. Bar and I spent the weekend cleaning carpets and upholstery and I intended washing all the vehicles today.
    Oh well, at least the Sound of Music is on TV this afternoon:roflmto:

    Hi cold, windy and overcast here in suffolk, been up since 7, grandson stayed last night and decided that it was time to get up at 7, nana just pretended to be asleep.:cry: clever nana

    Wouldn't have been to bad but we had a family party and me and brother-in-law stayed up till 2.30 drinking Greenore irish whisky. Luckily no hangover.

    I reckon Nana had the right idea too. You want to stay up carousing until 2.30 in the morning, especially at your age, you deserve to be landed with the grandchildren. :shout:

    We took the sensible way out and moved three counties away from the nearest offspring. :thumb:

    I feel sorry for anyone away in this weather.

    800ft up a hill in Glossop Derbyshire and it's WILD!!:Angry: Campsite not called Windy Harbour for nothing!:ROFLMAO:

    Very very windy and has been since we got here on Friday evening.

    Awning still standing - can recommend the Sunncamp Aspect for windy weather! :thumb:
    We've had to disconnect it from the van though as the drive-away bit kept coming off.


    At least it hasn't rained yet - the field gets very soggy when it rains so we're hoping it will hold off!:Eeek:

    Is it summer yet????

    Course it's summer Marie ::bigsmile:
    Friends of ours from Canada are in this country at the moment. They were staying up here last week and we had great weather for days out.
    On Friday they moved on to Glossop so not getting it so good now ::bigsmile:
    Just checked the BBC forecast though and it looks alright for the coming weekend when we will be there to visit my Mum :roflmto:

    Well the campsite has been full this bank holiday ::bigsmile: with folks mainly from Bristol area and they must be seasoned caravanners and motorhomers because they said they have all had a great time and they are all used to the great british weather ! Been windy with the odd shower but not cold.

    It has been chucking it down and blowing a gale all day here in West London. More like winter than spring. The roads are flooded and apparently there is more rain on its way. To make it worse two days ago we were on a beach in Corfu, beneath a blue cloudless sky and it was 28'C, and we left it all to come home to this.:Doh:
