    Oh by the way, I was reading your art thread the other day, until I got distracted, very interesting, I will return to it later on.

    (Had an emotional/financial disaster here yesterday and I'm not quite myself, it involves the wife and a huge shopping bill. 1/4 of my bank balance wiped out, not happy.)

    Six weeks off! I'm absolutely going to make the most of this one as well. I've even got a list which is a bit sad, but I want to make sure I do everything I want this holiday. The list includes various activities such as fishing various venues, walks, tennis, biking and all the usual other stuff, beer/food/books etc, etc. Got to be the best day of the year!!
