If you have as nice weather as it has been today down here, Suzanne, you will be very pleased. Sunny most of day. Was in Porthcawl and many were sitting sunning themselves (wearing storm jackets, mind).

Ask OH to take you to Wagamama in Cardiff Bay. If you both have a Firecracker well ....say no more ;-) ;-)
