Weather pretty much the same as it was in 1992...apart from the midges. The usual guest scenario morning was interrupted briefly by the arrival of Toby's new phone ordered the day before yesterday after much agonising and a burning small coming from the money in Toby's pocket....we will all have the pants literally bored off us in the next few weeks about the marvels that this phone can perform. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! I dragged the girls away from books and computers and out for an 8 mile cycle this afternoon. I ran and they cycled and jolly grateful they were too as the rain blasted into their faces, the mud splashed them and the wind threatened to blow a gale from the first few yards onwards.....Oh and Freya's chain first came off on the first hill and then finally snapped just before the last one.

Warm and wet midges biting
Mum and Dad went home 12.00 left me with puffy eyes and NO BATTERIES (Not even in my car!). work stops one hour before the light goes. Tiedied caravan and cleaned glass up in house. Rang Fee
NB The phone calls had to be made from the Caravan Park a mile or so away, as did showering and using a W.C!
