Oh Fi what a report!!!! :shock:

Thanks for being so honest and frank about your massive day out, you have no idea how helpful this is :D

You didn't really make any gigantic mistakes, just the accumulation of little things that we all do all of the time.

Lessons learned? yes but not just for you!!!! :thumbup:

PS Cracking snow angel :clap: :clap: :clap:
