Safe to send a girl down South ?

With all the things you read, I'm just not sure.

The North seems to be safe and so why head South?

I wonder if the warmer temperatures are a boon or an issue?

Will it be worth the journey?

Is the risk acceptable?

Should expert advice be sought before travelling?

What makes it even worse is that she will be travelling alone. I've read that isn't so clever. The stress of travelling alone isn't good, everyone knows that.

Perhaps a mitigant will be good quality food for the journey and fresh water?

Risk assessment seems to be the buzz phrase of the moment - but it's easy to say and less easy to do - where do you start?

Then there's the cost - fuel is so expensive - surely it's better to stay up North?

It's not that were against the South, it can be quite sunny down there.

Decisions, decisions. To send the girl down there or not.

Well to be honest it's too late to take your advice, she's gone, earlier today in fact.

I do hope she will be O.K.

Good luck at the BAS National Showing Committee in Stoneleigh tomorrow dear!

Nice one Paul - you've been let loose on the blog again - while the cat's away, the mice will play...

The cats better be in the warmth or else!

I arrived safely in Nottingham for the night with my parents before heading further down in the morning.

I don't recall being given any good food for the journey Paul the only talk of food was for your cooked breakfast!

Make sure you look after everyone.

Dave,Debbie - what can I say!

The cats are asleep on the bed, the alpacas were all fed and I'm looking forward to a multi-course cooked breakfast (because I can't make the bits all happen at the same time...)

Make sure you worm her when she gets back Paul.

Progress update at 9.41am Sunday - sausages, bacon, eggs, beans and a slice of bread all coincided to make a very happy morning!
