thanks for your comment on my RYWF post Toni - I think that that 3 months of rain all came down on the Thursday and Friday!

Looks like you are from my neck of the woods, born in Walthamstow but grew up in Buckhurst Hill. The only way is.....Wiltshire for me now lol, but will always be an Essex girl at heart
