First once again apologies for not being on the site, toooo busy ! And this upload is no different, we are off to Scotland for ten days or so .... so not be online much if at all till we are back ... where I promise to catch up with you all.

Many thanks Lillian for organising the day and a pleasure to meet you fine folks too.

Cracking detail, and I like the slightly oblique angle/off-centre placement. Good to see you uploading again.
At times waiting for the site is like watching paint dry - then it speeds up just as I'm about to report the problem...
