Yup - my Marina Coupe is long retired - the trouble is some awkward sod put the M25 in between Essex and the M4 and when you get to my age you need coffee in one services and a comfort brealk in the next one just to keep moving - you shouldn't believe everything you see on Gavin and Stacey

Hmm, the big night is getting nearer and not much confirmation a many going. I fancy going but I hope there is going to be more than four of us. Any more takers? I think a consultant should be able to afford a night in a Premier Inn, and get a round in. Its a question of determination.

Well I'm of to get in some practice now.
One of the advantages of approaching Old Gittage is that I do not have so much domestic responsibility to kids, etc. So on Friday night you know what time it nearly is dont you?

Its Beer o'clock of course Happy Days

LoL - it's a question of being under the hammer big style from an overseas construction manager on a big job that's got some very senior staff very worried - like seven figures worried.

When it comes to determination, all mine will be focused on the "all nighters" that dealing with our Indian design centre for a middle east project brings.

If I'm up this way, and have an hour or so spare I'll try and pop over - but in true consuktancy style - no commitment

Blow the froth off one for me - I wont be away till the wee small hours again

LoL - I know what time it is here - it's panic time

Of course

Blooming 'eck oms, that sounds so familiar. You've got to get this sorted. You can't work under that sort of pressure. Believe me I've spent many years being put through a wringer and after a bit of a health scare this summer I can truly tell you that others people problems are not your problems. But they become them. Even though I'm still bonding plastic pipes, I'm very happy.

I'm sending ukpn to give you a hand

GUTTED, got to work this weekend!
Not a happy bunny as Zs will testify I have made other do's, but, can't make this one as customer requirements prior to the Xmas break are preventing this.
Sorry Zs, you'll have to shake my paw another day.

I'd like to go to the night but it sounds like there's only going to be about five going!

I was hoping to meet a few more than that as I'll have to pay for a stopover.

Is Dave Cockburn going?
