Oh, it sounds like you had a wonderful time away!

Especially loved all the photos of Hadrian's Wall and Vindolanda. I'm now even more excited to get down! :)

Is it June you go? Ooh won't be long now. Whose team are you on? They're finding some beautiful stonework from the granaries in the stone fort. Have you seen the photos on www.wedigvindolanda.com?
And you'll have a beautiful all mod cons chalet to have your breaks in - luxury compared to the old tea hut!

Looks like a fun trip.

And some nice memories for me. I've seen some of the places just a year ago.

It's the 8 June I start. And I'm on Andrew's team. I can't wait. I'm absolutely pounding my knees with excitement! :)
