don't weaken Griff, just remember you have done the hardest part already. I used to smoke at least 30 Rothman international a  day on a good day, I gave up  at midnight December 31st 1989 and have never smoked since, I could not have picked a more difficult time to do it - I was going through a divorce and a house move at the same time and felt grotty on and off for about 2 years but wouldn't give in and now you couldn't pay me to smoke.

Lovely photos Ian. Haven’t ever been to Leeds Castle but have thought about it many times. We just never seem to go south these days!

My suggestion try to pick a nice day like today.It costs £25.Seems  alot,however that ticket lasts for 12 months. If you book segway you see the park,including some bits not seen by to many.It is truly a beautiful setting.

Leeds castle is well worth the visit Jean especially if you're a sucker for stately homes like me. Before we bought the boat and had time on our  hands at weekends we used to go to visit them regularly.

Similar to me. I tried my brothers ciggies at 13, then again at 15, but could`nt see the point. I`ve also had some nice bikes, holidays, cars etc because of the money i`ve NOT spent on ciggies. Oh, and when i was young, i suffered a lot with asthma, though have`nt had a bad attack for many years.

Had a good day today. Visited relatives, re siliconed an en-suite for a favourite Aunty. 

MrsG beautifying hersen as I type. Off out for Dinner at the Spinnaker hotel on the sea front soon then a walk round a few venues (Bars) afterwards. 

She’s a very lucky girl :default_norty:

Got up this morning and made Mrs O a bacon butty for breakfast in Windmill Lady's not very  palatial galley. I was surprised by a beautifully marked bengal cat, which was sitting on the port side deck, peering in through the galley window.  He waited patiently there for several minutes and was rewarded by a few bacon scraps. He seemed to be quite at home on the boat, which I know many cats are not,   All too soon, he was off on his way, having brightened the start of my day.
