thanks Helen - Mr Cad is a VERY dangerous place ... an aladins cave full of childlike wonders and delights to tempt us right into our bank managers' bad books. I love it there but have been avoiding going up for fear of spending all the home-improvements budget.

Did you really live in one of the carriages at Standard Quay? Until June, I lived next to the Rec. but have since moved to Chilham ... small world!

This may be a familiar sight for you then ...
