Thanks mate ........it's much appreciated.

Any kind of 'summer' would be welcome at the moment ...we still seem to be stuck in winter ! This is the worst start to a year 'weather-wise' that I can remember....Surely it must change soon.....

It is the same on this side of "the pond".
We had snow in May! The first time since the last Ice Age.
Luckily it seems to have finally passed, today is basically perfect.

Haha... I've never seen Motherwell in anything close to 8C... Lord I was freezing me buttocks off each time I was there. Same for Lanark. Those are definitely my "coldest" memories (for multiple reasons... ).
Anyway - what's there in Stafford actuallly? Got a friend there, she never mentioned anything...

Yeah, I know that you were referring to some show and not the weather. Just wanted to know which show there was as I didn't know there was any. So cheers for enlightening me!
