A Quick Update & Blog Candy

I managed to miss WOYWW this week, as we stayed away an extra day and didn't come home until Thursday.  For those who have sent me messages enquiring about our holiday, we did survive the awful weather!  On Friday night we had tremendous rain and strong winds - the worse in the Plymouth area for many years.  The caravan was rocked by the awning moving about and the noise from the rain was deafening (just like having water poured from the sky).  Everyone in our group was ok (even the 2 guys in a tent!) - except for 2 inches of water in our awnings to paddle in - but others were flooded/blown away.  We found out the next morning that we were nearly evacuated at 3 am, as the river going through the campsite was close to flooding. 


Everything set up - the calm before the storm!






























The morning after the storm


























Something that always cheers me up in this 'summer' weather is the chance to win some Blog Candy.  Sandy has a gorgeous set of goodies to give away on her blog HERE.
