We'll bring a load of fleece if anyone fancies taking some home to play with and will bring a few things for the potluck picnic. Looking forward to it :-)

Arggghhhhh - it's going to rain.

If it's raining when we get there, we'll have to decamp to the pub. Looking at Google, there's a pub called the George which, I think, is opposite the car park (I'm not sure, mind, as it's years since I last went to Lacock). If we do then I'll text those who've given me their phone numbers and the rest can check in with me.

See you later

Thanks, Mandy.

I've just found the phone number of the George Inn in case you get lost. 01249 730363.

If it's dry though, we'll go for the picnic as many people have made food ready for it and it'd be a shame to waste it.

I'm rereading the thread and it was Milims who said Jack Dee and me who said James Bond. I still think you do - although of course James Bond is blond these days and nothing like the image I have for 007 which is a sort of mix of George Lazenby, Sean Connery with a bit of Roger Moore thrown in (showing my age!). :iconbiggrin:

Yup do get to England from time to time, last year did a Bristol Ish meet. Next time Wiltshire!

Hope you've got as nice a day as we've woken up to this morning, and that you all have a lovely day . . . Wanders off feeling quite jealous and trying not to look at the list of jobs that we've got to do today :(
the ever growing luvpie household currently contains, 4 boys, 4 chickens, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, 4 fish, an empty tropical fish tank waiting new arrivals, now are we daft to look at our broody hen thinking, if we got some fertilised eggs........

Raining and threatening to be heavier, looks like thedragon may be bringing the car (thus bringing himself too :shock: ) it's a british racing green stretch limo Skoda, index letters OJO (not my blue/black bike)
due to the weather looks likely a pub meet, in which case he's tall with silver hair, mine is purple (fading to pink)
I will try to contact you Zoe when I get away as I don't get a mobile signal at home
