Took a look at your camera Hosta. It's almost identical to mine but maybe a little bit bigger. All the features look exactly the same. I was looking for something around £100 and it was reduced to £85 from about £130/140 I think. For the same money as the smaller, pocket sized ones, it seemed more than worth it, even if it's a bit more cumbersome on walks. The case is useful though - I have it fixed on my rucksack waistband and carry little route maps, snacks, GPS and glasses in it!  

I think you'll love yours

Oh 'eck Lyn - I'd have plenty to put on that thread ! 

I might try again with the milk. I can't function without tea

You're right! 

I don't like my tea creamy - I even find semi skimmed too sickly

I'll be ok doc - plenty of hills to go up. I can live in  a hut somewhere and burn peat as Jimmmy says

Don't think there's much milk, so no fat, in the red stuff - that's probably the issue! It looked manky

Where did you get those pix of me fidget - and my house! 

The fairy sculptures are amazing. I know you've posted some before, but you can never have too much of a good thing 

Love that second one from Trebah and, like Lorna, I think that fern is stunning 

Thanks Lorna - clouds feature heavily in hillwalking pix 

That one is Ben Lomond - I have a lot of pix of it at different times of year andfrom different angles. The one in the previous set is the summit of Stob Ghabar in Glen Etive taken from my walk on Sunday in Bridge of Orchy. The Etive hills were in cloud all day, whereas the Tyndrum hills (in the pic with the lochan) and the Orchy ones were clear.

That photo of the building you posted is beautiful. Whereabouts is that?

Lyn - I only post pix of the best bits too - that's why I never show the cr***y bit behind/beside the shed  

I'm sure I've tried to freeze milk before and it didn't work - perhaps the skinny milk isn't suitable? Does anyone know? Dove?  

Hosta - I'm sure your hols will be top of 'Big Shiny Faced' Dave's list 

Batteries not charged - tut tut - should have been better prepared ...

I heard earlier that people about to go on holiday were being offered full refunds.

It's turned into a vile sort of night here....ho hum
