Thanks, Alanz.

What with commuting to work every day, and travelling to see The Mother, I feel like I spend most of my life on a train.

Myself and two friends from the camera club are currently planning a 7 day holiday there in April. We are not entirely sure just where yet as we have only just decided on that part of the country but we will be taking a cottage for the week. :D

Was hoping to go to Cornwell at end of May but looking at petrol costs - towing caravan - we have had to knock that one on the head. It's lovely down there in Spring penfold, have a good holiday.

Was going to complain that in February 'round here was being a bit jerky, first down below 0 farenheit, then up to 50, And down to 10 below, and up to 59 with two days of rain, right into 1/2 day of ice and then plunging below just enough to freeze the roads then an hour later 3 inches of snow. Winter should be vaguely stable, not all higgledy-piggledy like a Po-Go Stick.

I will stick with this, you have massive fires, massive smoke, massive water and BUGS, SNAKES, SPIDERS, DEADLY KOALA'S (ask Del), KILLER CROCS, JELLYFISH and lord only knows what else. I would be scared to visit.

Looks pretty Bouncy!

It's still cold here, but nice enough so that I could walk to run my errands. :D

It's snowing again here and it's awfully cold-well,the thermometer says -4 but it feels like -15 because the wind is high and biting cold.My hands smarted only going out to the car.The high wind means it lashes the snow into your face-really uncomfortable weather.I could do with some spring!

Oh,and enjoy your holiday,Bouncy.I always get homesick looking at such nice pictures!
It´s still magic even if you know how it´s done.
