Update.....
CarolG is fine. She is desperately wanting to get back on EPZ but she sensibly is playing a low key at home.
Her partner has trashed her computers often as I think he feels its the only thing she really will fight for.
I said ... leave it for awhile.
And albeit she isnt happy she is being strong this time.
Lets hope she can work it out.
I had sent her some seeds from the allotment and all her frustrations are being taken out on the snails!Wink
She will be seeing Chinga during the week so some proper news should come back.

off to Flamborough this week ... no form of communication...
and it seems it will be a wet week .... so piccies from inside the caves rather than flying puffins.
so see you all when we get back!

Thanks for the update on Carolg, and I love this image Barbara. It would have been nice for the 2 pairs at Southampton Common to be allowed to stay but I'm afraid Mr Swan had other idea's and they are no where to be seen. Have a good time away.
