    Ducks or Deckchairs?

    The weather's not looking bad now for the weekend

    Friday - Sunny, but a bit of a wind
    Saturday - Lots of wind (but that's just me) and a bit overcast
    Sunday - Showers (and more wind )

    Its not Boggy

    The grounds just soft and a bit waterlogged but by the looks of things this won't matter after friday night as it will be frozen solid by then.

    and yep your right i will be sleeping in my own bed i'm not daft enough to go camping in january when there's so many empty B&Bs in the area

    Like i've said if it gets bad theres always the barn and if it goes polar then there's always the floor of the restaurant
