Well it does look pretty much certain now that there will be rain, so let's hope that it's a couple of showers - anyone got an umbrella like thisone?!! :wink:

It actually looks quite bright here ATM... [-o< [-o<

Have you been finding the end of your XM the hard way? :lol:


The weather outlook does appear to be better than earlier in the week, only light rain on Saturday and a light rain shower on Sunday, according to the BBC weather site.

Fortunately not Chris, according to the service history, its been like it for a good few years, an advisory on an MoT back in the early to mid 2000s :lol:

I daren't look at the weather to be honest, as long as its dry long enough for me to stick up the tent I'll be happy.

Nice!

Its starting to look a little gloomy here at the moment, so I guess I'll be driving up with the bad weather on tow :twisted:

I should probably get on with the packing and make a move soon...

Tow the weather back in the opposite direction and allow everyone to enjoy a rain free show, come on Kev where's your public spirit?

Its been a nice morning here but its getting grey and dull now, hopefully the weekend will be better than expected, but it never stops me from enjoying the events.

I have just got in from my Graduation ceremony, just about to start packing and get the Xantia out of the garage. Should be on my way soon :D

It's been OK here today. Very hot, close and sticky as if a big thunderstorm is brewing...

The Activa has been well scrubbed and is looking good :D

Weather is not looking too bad. I listened to the forecast on Gardeners Question Time this afternoon and it is well, not exactly wall-towall sunshine but just a bit damp at times so that's OK.

See you all tomorrow :D

Fingers crossed for the weather. Have just given the Activa a quick blast with the pressure washer and a vacuum.

Mostly packed too. Looks like I might get off work early tomorrow too. Should be there around 5-6, possibly a bit earlier.

Not sure what day we'll be making an appearance. Probably Sunday and maybe on a two-wheel Citroen!

Undecided as yet! I feel a need to have to clean my beloved car so much so that the two-wheeler Citroen maybe get jealous!
