S'all right for some ain't it, if I did that right now I'd get a right good soaking as it's chucking it down here at the moment Sad Never mind, as I'm still in my jim jams I don't intend going very far today Tongue

Another good series Carol, just you wait till the spring and I can get back to my beloved moths again Grin
