Quite right about the parking ,if you've go a real wheel drive like I've got,it can be a small problem ,last year I had to be pushed off but it won't put me off visiting again this Sunday although i think I'll go by train and free bus.

Hi Clare
Regret SWMBO is still in hospital so I'm only allowed out to go to the supermarket or visiting. Might see you next year!! (I'm far too old for you)

Stand by Clare for those members who insist that in the UK it is a railway station NEVER a train station!!

Have fun at the Stafford Show.

I hope I get pardoned for the terminology lol, but guess who's been brave enough to have another sound loco ��, a flying Scotsman and it's a beauty. Hubby treated me for Valentine's Day as my mallard for Xmas was a real bad ordeal. So will be happily playing up the attic tonight even though I'm not supposed to have it yet lol oooops!!. Good day at Stafford show but not as many as previous years I don't think

You're in a really argumentative mood today, aren't you?
