-1 BX. I apparently double booked myself, Yeovil's beer festival is the saturday before, and as i'm down to work the Sunday it'd be much cheaper and less hassle (changing days at work) than to join all the lovely people at Burghley house. Thank you very much to the pair of BXers that offered accomodation, the same offer applies to you both for the Bristol classic show.

Sorry chaps, not had my tax rebate as of yet either... :(

Oh hell, they are forcasting snow next Friday night/Saturday morning in my neck of the woods so will have to keep my eye on the weather.
I will make a decision on Tuesday as thats the day i have to notify the carer provider without incuring any penalty. Bugger!! Even had a smattering last night.

Trying to snow now and its as cold as charity out there.
How am i supposed to get Gloria up on the ramps and do some rust treatment.
I suppose just having a look wont hurt much. They say that this spell of cold will last all through April too!!!

I'm pleased to report that there's been no snow here, which is around 30 miles from Burghley.

Obviously the weather is out of our control however we can but hope it's kind to us... [-o<

Talking of which, I have managed to secure some hard standing parking for us to use if the grass was deemed unsuitable on the day...

This area is quite near where we normally park and an added benefit is that it's surrounded with trees so could give good protection from the weather...

We do, of course, hope that it doesn't come to that however that is Plan B... :wink:

Looks like I may be heading in the wrong direction next weekend as a trip to London may be on the cards. Was reallyhoping to get to the X Rally but not looking too hopeful at this minute.
