Well it didn't rain.....well not until the very end & then it was only a few spots. This year we made 14 people (17 if you include the dogs) and out of those there was only Sheila, Mandy, Pete & myself from last year. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves & we were all reasonably good with our picnics. Angus the 3 legged Westie stole the show and everybodys hearts, giving frequent and brilliant impressions of a Meerkat. Pete will post the pictures soon. I must apologise for the lack of 'get up & go' from Pete & I, it was all the fault of the b****rs who at 2.15am, set fire to a load of tyres which had been dumped by our back fence Friday afternoon. Thanks to the quick response of the Fire Brigade & for Pete using the garden hose until the FB arrived, we only lost 4 trees & will only have to replace a couple of sections of fence, it could have been a lot worse. Finally got back to bed at about 3.30am but only managed to cat nap for what was left of the night. Meanwhile, Mandy didn't know anything had happened until we told her about it this morning!!!

    Fire? What fire? LOL It must have been down to all that red wine and brandy that knocked me out!!

    It was such a good gathering and a lovely weekend for me. I'll chat via e-mail a bit more in a mo.

    Hope youve caught up with your much needed sleep.

    I'm so glad that everyone had a good time - despite your disturbed and difficult night.

    I knew that it would be too soon after a recent operation fo rme to join you, but well done for organising the get together. Look forward to seeing photos of UK Sparkies.

    I thought Angus looked far more like a Moomin than a meerkat.

    Great day!
    Wonderful time meeting such great people, such a pleasure to put the faces to the names.
    Good on you Jude and Pete for organizing the gig and what a Ga,ga......ga,ga,ga.........Gazebo, without it, we would have all had sun stroke and burnt to a crisp!
    To think that from North to South, East to West, the total area in square miles would be covered from the people who attended from their home towns. Manchester down to Coventry, Telford over to Peterborough.
    14 came from every corner of the region!
    Roll on next year and a bigger turn out!

    I'm glad you had a great day and I actually chuckled when I heard about Angus' meerkat impression. My little yorkie used to do the same so I know how heart melting it is!
