I'm blooming glad I couldn't get to Nadwcon, one with food poisoning, one in hospital and one narrowly avoiding cheese poisoning, lucky escape there :D

Sorry guys, I'm not going to be able to make it tomorrow. Neck is playing silly buggers* again and so I've cancelled Mum coming down tonight as today even being a passenger to Leeds would be too painful.
There is of course the possibility that I'll wake up tomorrow and think hmm it might not be a maximum tramadol day, but then I still won't be able to drive there!
Can we get video conferencing set up for these meets? :lol:

Hope you all have a fab time, I wouldn't have been able to make it even if neck was okay as I've got the sicky bug that's going around. Someone tell me all the gossip afterwards!

I hope you all had a good time - we had lunch in the garden and thought of you all. A glorious day, it was perfect BBQ weather. Until next time!
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Well ... HUGE THANKS to Paul for acting in true Founder & Secretary/General Factotum mode so efficiently and welcoming us all, at very short notice, to Bezler Towers after our intended host Pat was forced to cancel (see [edit]above[/edit] ... sorry, got my ups & downs confused ... makes a change from left & rights :oops: ).

After wishing Pat & SWMBO a rapid recovery :lol: a very convivial meet followed, with drink & 'nibbles' provided and expertly cooked by our genial host!
(The nibbles, not the drink!)

Owlswick's Apprentice provided an excellent ... if depressing :( ... quiz on the theme of Disworld & Roundworld 'Famous Last Words.
I managed to avoid ... again ... the ignomy of coming last (Thanks, Pete! Glad you came :thumbr: ) ... but once again I was forced to contemplate the uncomforable truth that my recall is *appalling* ... so bad, that I am beginning to consider an alternative possibility that I haven't actually read ANY of the books!
Even my good lady Sue managed better than me, and she wasn't officially participating ... :oops:

Thanks again to Paul, and here's to the next meet, hopefully rearranged in the near future 'Chez Pat'.
I, for one, am keen to witness the development of The Garden one year on under Pat's expert guidance. :wink:

We heartily agree with all Colin's comments. It was a lovely afternoon (except for the quiz - my brain is still aching! :D )Wonderful to see everyone again although we did miss those who couldn't make it. Thank you again to Paul.

In full agreement with all comments, I will have to temper my quiz enthusiasm for any future attempts. Sorry guys.
The girl was mesmerised.
But once again many thanks Paul.

Hey ... No need to apologise for OUR lack of brains, Philip ... it was a great quiz!
And it was a good job that Heather had brought a few neurones along ... :wink:
