Re: Leaving on a Jet Plane....

Yes the weather is foul

Yes, Wolves lost to Man U. No surprise there then.

Yes, we are glad to be back, there is more to life than the weather.

We will be visiting Spain on holiday for some winter sun in the future

Crossing was fine and I waved to Mark Wilding on the way. :)

I'll still post on the forum if that's OK. :)
