Yeah, could do. I think I need a bit more nagging first - but if you really wanna persuade me just say I can take your QV for a spin and I'll be there!

OK. Now we're talking! I'll see if I can talk Mrs Bliss into coming to this one... and of course take a rain-check nearer the time.

Na, I think you're confusing England for Wales. (That said the last couple of times I've crossed the border it hasn't rained).

Upon checking the Atlantic pressure charts it looks like this current low if going to move off Eastwards and give way to an area of high-pressure coming in from the South West by Sunday, so the chances are it'll be dry but cloudy (if not interspersed with the odd sunny patch.) Should be good!

ok went to TH yesterday as you come into the carpark, in the far left hand corner there is a new extension for parking on black tarmac......its closer to the grounds which is handy if we are carrying stuff, so could we aim to all park there ??? hopefully it wont be too busy and we can all park together....

Well, got the food, got the map...got the car!

Now there's nothing stopping me but the leaving of it all. Have looked up Tredegar House on Google. Looks like a council house!
