When we did the D of E practice thing it was in the middle of a torrential downpour so we found the nearest cafe and sat and drunk hot chocolate until it stopped...we ended up about 3 hours late for our last checkpoint and had to pretend that we'd lost the map and got horribly lostsmiley - smiley

Do berries on tree's really mean snow? Besides it snowed here last week and it snowed here in August so I don't think we can predict the weather to wellsmiley - smiley

Lots of berries on holly trees usually mean there's going to be a hard winter... they're very thoughtful of all the hedgerow birds.

Trouble is with global warming and all that, the weather is far less predictable. We get snow in August, floods, hot sunny days in January, and all kinds of horrible stuff. Oh and raining fridges.

What sort of car is that, then?

Those cookies sound quite similar. Certainly getting McVities cooked three weeks ago and stuffed in a tube is nowhere near as good.

We've forgotten. I expect we all saw a queue and thought we'd better join it. Maybe it was petrol.
