Have all you 'orrible lot been behaving whilst I was away? Having quickly whizzed through the week's postings I see the answer is quite obvious ;o}
Regarding the Beast of Bodmin: whilst wandering through the in-laws run down and overgrown 40 acres of gardens and garden centre I'm positive I saw said beast. When I returned to the house and described it to them it appeared loping across the far lawn - my face isn't so red now but that gigantic (and I mean ginormous) moggie certainly fooled me!!
Not so much speechless as gormless!!
