Good, I was beginning to wonder whether I'd be all on my ownsome on Saturday.

Re: NEC thread, it wasn't the hardiness of the stickers I was querying, but how well they'd stand up to frequent washing ;P - look forward to a closer look at that valver.

No mate.The pie shop's shut on Thursday(been in today) Don't really fancy 3 or 4 day old pies :( Not sure about the bird line up either,as things are changing day by day.Bubbles(barn owl),Bella(harris hawk) and BooBoo(eagle owl) will be there along with(maybe) a buzzard, a Kestral and a little owl depending on how things work out this week.Look forward to catching up with you too.

Bad word, worse word, deep wishes that I didn't swear so much normally then I might actually be able to find a bad enough word.

Apocalypse now-ish*. I'm probably only gonna be able to go for Sunday :( - although I shall do my utmost to make it up for late Sat if I can, I DESERVE BBQ. Because I'm worth it.

* Fucking work.

Sandre I'm disappointed. I'll be sure to save you some of my lovely venison burgers!

I'm tempted to go late on Saturday actually (they're selling tents in Asda for 12 quid!); my work is going very BADLY or more properly; VERY slowly. I could do with a bit of 'ging gang gooley' and dining under the stars on a purloined venison burger. Will there be any Citroen motor cars there? If the answer's 'yes', my happiness would be complete (more or less)! :D

OOOOH ... yeah, campfire singing. I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves :D ...

Flapjack for dessert boys! - it'll be cooking tomorrow while I wash the car before setting off.

I'm jealous, I really am. While you're all sitting round a campfire I'll be at a wedding reception on the other side of the country, at a venue summed up by a single Google review in only 5 words. "Crap bar and warm beer."

It's on the way back.

OK, so it's the scenic route, but it's still on the way back.

Hmmm, it's an extra 100 miles and and 90 minutes driving, so a definite possibility. I shall have to pick my moment very carefully - I find that just before she drops off to sleep is a good time, as surely "mmmh" means yes doesn't it? At least it might reassure her that you're all fairly normal people....oh, maybe on second thoughts I'd better leave it... :lol:
