    Move a few miles down the road to Wrexham, mate! None of that here...

    Although today it's a little drizzly. Anyway, sounds like you need a holiday!

    You should get one of those polythene "rain scarves", y'know, like what you see women of a certain age wearing when dragging their tartan shopping trolleys down to the post office for their pensions. If you combine that look with a super-short skirt and heels it'll give the other pensioners something to gossip about, and the blokes may not need the little blue pills for a day or two

    That two days in Scotland was my holiday, for the moment anyway.

    Did the usual touristy stuff, a visit to West Coast Motorcycles in Glasgow, and also a really old-fashioned ironmonger's, which smelt of creosote and paraffin (love those places). And came home with some nice souvenirs (some Aberdeen Angus burgers and three 7mm hss drill bits).

    Drove up there Friday with no rain, sunny all day yesterday, and then in the small hours of this morning...sat nav recommended an alternative route to avoid local flooding. Which was nice, drove through some places I didn't know existed, and only added ten minutes to the journey. The bright lights of Ecclefechan were getting a bit boring anyway.

    It does Marco. I think thats the obvious answer to the people with the best mindset throughout the year. Travel and the best holidays.

    Im trying to pile up my cash and I dont like spending on holidays I thought I would be alright with my three or four days off regularly over the summer.

    I purposely dont work longer hours to enjoy my time off

    Fat chance with this weather! Something seems to be going on with global warming. I can't remember an August this bad but I do have the memory of a goldfish

    Gorgeous day here in sunny Wrexham! Currently 19C, with no wind to speak of. So we'll be enjoying some more al fresco dining later... Need to make the most of it because, apart from Thursday, the rest of the week is due to piss down!

    When I was a nipper we used to go on holiday to Anglesey most Augusts. It seemed to be raining constantly.

    Lolz... We never get flooding here because we live at the top of a hill, and we don't get that much rain, as we're sheltered by the mountains.

    No, I meant a proper holiday, like away somewhere abroad for a couple of weeks. You need to recharge your batteries now and then dude, otherwise you'll just get jaded, especially when winter kicks in!
