Im more worried about getting Jazz to the wedding, not me!


I must admit, this trip would be more appealing if we could get a visit of the Rennes factory in which our cars where made. Even if it is now a Peugeot Factory. Which reminds me i saw two Peugeot prototypes today, it wasn't hard to tell what marque they belonged to!

I don't know that much about weddings, but from what I remember reading 'The Ladybird Book of Weddings', if you're the groom, non-attendance is probably not an option? (I'm not 100% on that - but worth checking to avoid any little misunderstandings?) :D

Seen one Peugeot you've seen 'em all (runs and hides - as they say).

I've sent Mark and Tim's details to Xemes, so they are now booked on the 11.00am tour. Does anyone else need a booking?

What's your surname Mike? The Conservatoire need it for their booking form.

I don't do protocol I laugh in the face of rules so don't worry to quote a phrase from my very favourite 70s TV show "I didn't get where I am today by following rules!"

Was it 'The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin'? I believe his boss Charles Jefferson (CJ) uttered the above - 'I didn't get where I am today . . . etc. etc.'

Can I have a prize? 8)
