It was Bob's comment that swung it, couldn't inflict that on the chap, fate worse than death and all that. I booked a room and our intention is to arrive Friday afternoon, and leave on the Monday morning. And I don't want to see any snow Barry!
Phew! That's a great weight off my mind. I can enjoy the rest of the summer now without the Sword of Damocles hanging over me... (thinks: was that over-doing it a bit? Oh no: thinking out loud AGAIN! Note to self: stop doing it. ... Oh... blast!...)
That's me booked in for Friday and Saturday, D, B+B. Can't stop any longer as I'm supposed to be staying a week with friends in Dorset starting that Saturday night! It will be good to see our friends from Ireland as well as the rest of you again .
