Hostafan, there are better places to go than Sharm. Security was always lax, except for the time they wanted a bribe to let my video camera in and not confiscate it. A fiver and they would bypass any security.  Money was requested by the scanner people to put the luggage on the conveyer belt. When I raised my voice and asked why, they moved on to the next victim.Last time I went I was leered at and comments made, even though I was fully dressed, and OH was at my side. I didn't feel safe, and we made a decision that there were far nicer places in the world to go to.

Is it that time.?    I couldnt sleep all night then fell asleep about 6 am

The fairyman who makes the fairies at Trentham gardens is selling one called Trillian. I wish I could buy her, but sealed bids only, the last one sold on ebay around 15 grand, and that would buy a big greenhouse full of plants. I do have a idea though for some allium heads and some spray paint.

I must download the camera, there are still pics from the wedding on there. I got a dozen bottles of prosecco from Morrisons yesterday for the post wedding (picture showing ) party. I must get some fireworks before they are all sold out.

what would you do differently?

Maybe, he's a gladiolus farmer in Vietnam. I guess he'd want more than a couple of dozen.
