I strongly suspect that CUPCAKES are just a figment of our collective imagination and we will never actually taste any! :(

Cluny's had some of my cupcakes :p so they must be real :))

I'm baking tomorrow \:D/ , I have a generic plane cookie cutter and I might make some aeroplane ginger bread (or just some choc chip cookies) but it depends how much time I have tomorrow :D
I will (hopefully) be in the viewing area on Friday :D
Feel free to come find me for a cake (or two ;) ) \:D/ :D

Phew thank goodness for that!! :))

I've just made 60 mini quiche to supplement [if you don't mind Helen] I hate turning up empty handed when some one is so generous!!

But if it was Sunday there was no way I could keep them as we are staying on camp Friday and Saturday

Mum and I were just talking about car parks at the show.

For the last 3 years we've found our selves in the blue car park behind the static aircraft park (the one where the AWACS live normally), we have no choice but to come through Lincoln, up Canwick hill and through Bracebridge heath, we've never looked at any other carpark.

So here's my rather long winded question for anyone who knows the area, when you get to the 2nd lot of traffic lights in Bracebridge, can you carry on along the A15 and get into a different car park???
As we have always been waved right by the police to the main RAF Waddington entrance and then the blue car park.

I fancied a change, but not too bothered if it's not possible as I like that car park, although we are always the last lot to be let out for some reason ~x(

I have no idea if that makes any sense =)) =))

I don't think they will let you go straight on at the 2nd traffic lights as it means you have to cross the road to get in the same gate as you will use today, you would need to go through Branston - right at the village traffic lights and use the back road and come out South of 607 on the A15 BUT I'm not if they allow that either as the sign posts I saw yesterday were indicating you go even further south.

It's all about stopping traffic crossing carriage ways in the hope of keeping traffic flowing

I ignored the signs last year (from the south) and when a policeman on the A15 said there were queues (which there weren't) I said I was going to meet someone there and I was allowed through. Parked near the control tower.
