Glorian's kiddy fiddler costume looks awesome, he's got the facial expression down to a fine art.

We're home, shopped and the entire contents of the car is now where our living room floor used to be!

We know the girls got home, they threw a load in the car and we dropped it off on our way back so we've seen them at home too.

Thank you all for another fab fun weekend

Thank you Stu, Tracey, Sue and Rennie for organising and running.

How wet did everyone get on the way home then?*

We had a few spots on the way to Wales then about 40 miles away it was a few heavy showers but not really enough for waterproofs!

Nice view from our hotel for two nights
