    The half term holiday starts tomorrow, hurrah!::bigsmile:
    It's blowing a gale with squally showers in Wigan right now, boo!:Angry:

    I'm trying to pack the van up between the showers, it's a slow job but just a about finished...

    There's no fixed plan of which way to head yet, we're "weather watching", ha...:ROFLMAO:
    Brollies and wellies are packed...:thumb:

    So which way do we go?
    The Missus reckons Scotland, East Coast, maybe St. Andrews...I'm easy.:Cool:

    I'd like to tell you to come to the sunny south but it doesn't look like it's going to be that sunny :Sad:

    Agreed, use it all the time to plan kitesurfing trips to the beach.:thumb:

    We're heading North!

    Nothing fixed but will make it over the border by tomorrow evening, all the toys in the van.
    10 days away, longest yet in this particular machine. Happy days.::bigsmile:

    Hi,we have spent quite a lot of time on both Riverside and Tayview sites since selling our house in Angus three months ago.The jury is still out on if to buy a UK 'base' on Tayside or in Edinburgh.Usual family reasons!
    Had some lovely days on both these sites pitched right next to the water watching the kite surfers and we have seen a fair amount of sun!:thumb:

    Strangely enough, I have walked past your van this week, as it's my usual dog walk. I have a friend who used to have a static on the site and he said you meet the friendliest/most down to earth people there, it is a lovely setting. :thumb:
