Son turned up, Phew! 

Son did leave home, much better as you said Jo, when you don't know what's going on. Still he had a good time, and for once the course was interesting

As for Cannock Chase it seems the were wolf arrived after we left!! (becks)

Have to completely emptycaravan today, usually leave plates etc in but have a damp problem and we are taking it to be looked at so needs to have cupboards empty so they can get in all the nooks and crannies. Goodness knows where we are going to put the stuff

Just watched Master Chef. The messy one got through then.

Son is missing, well he's been up on a course and called in to folk at Cannock Chase. Just taken him 2 hours to get from there to B'ram (train travelling) usually talkes about 30 mins. He still has to come down to Worcester and then Malvern station Still he is a very big boy now - same age as Jo's daughter! Just worry about all the plonkers that travel at this time of night.

Chris  We chose it because when ever we took a weekend break we always seemed to end up here or nearby and as you say loved it.

Go to Malvern Spring and Autumn show though always seem to be somewhere else for 3Counties Show. Secret go to shows last afternoon - brilliant bargains as stock is cleared. Got some great plants and greenhouse. Last time greenhouse staging And seed trays for £12.

Wonder how Geoff getting on.

I wasn't in car, previuos person I knew was. Not scathed

Estate agents, they told us, are now supposed to sort out genuine interest from time wasters.
