    Not as bad as last year though. At least I don't have to paddle to work this summer.

    Thing is I think we've actually had more rain this year, it's just been spread out for the entirety of August instead of all coming on one day.

    The scary thing is due to the credit crunch everyone seems to be going camping this year (except me).

    Roll on Christmas.

    A friend who owns a holiday cottage in Wales has said it has been manic this year as what with the Euro picking up and the credit worries tons of people have been staying in the UK. I think he has been booked solid since about may & will be through to the end of Oct with only one cancellation.

    I dont get this stay in britain = cheap myth.

    Maybe pitching a tent in a field for a week is cheap, but travelling anywhere decent and staying a semi-decent hotel, food, attractions, plus the petrol to travel accross the country etc, you can get a cheap package holiday to the sun for about the same.

    27 year old and I went on a Lakes and mountains holiday in Austria, 1 week of quality sunshine for 320. Austrian BBQ's are miles better than GB's

    I left the UK for Australia 4 years ago and it's currently 24 degrees here and we have 300+ days of sunshine a year
