I think the sleet and hail may slow it @Keely but it's going to be a close call I fear! Oh yes @columbiariver it's hard work creating a causal relaxed effortless wedding 😏so far we have had a digger in to flatten the field for the marquee, the neighbours thought we were building log cabins - rumours were rife!!! 😂😂

Ooooh good luck @jendren and silly I know @linfoster but my early morning wander back from the chickens is made brighter for all new "treasures"I find! Must be getting old 😂😂
