Might be worth me considering that for my annual trip to 'Oo-Arrr' land in 'zunny Deb'n'!

It's time you, Tommo and I caught up for a chin-wag. Are you both going?

There we are then Spuds - you do a little recce and report back and let us know if it's worth a visit.

It has rained quite a bit here overnight, but not as heavy or as long as it seems to have down your neck of the woods. I guess it'll do a lot of gardens & lottie plots a world of good.

That's a bit of a kick in the crotch for you with that frost you had, sorry to hear that. Frost at this time of the year is a crippler. Were the haulms out? You might get away with it if they were still buried. Still, you might still get away with it, even if they were above ground, unless the frost was particularly hard. Fingers crossed for you!
