Great night and really good to meet you all. On the way home I had an interesting experience. I think i mentioned that my dad had a pub in Astbury while chatting to the lads. I haven't seen him in about 13 years. On the way back I nipped in! Probably the best thing i've done ever in my life next to getting married. :)

If it wasn't for this meet up I would have probably never done it. So double thanks guys :D

The one in your avatar, with the At At, didn't I read that shot was taken at the top of the stairs in your family's pub?

Ah right. I'm with you. No that's the old pub in Preston. Never know though there might be some of my old bits and bobs at the place they are in now :)

Well Barry really sold FF to me on Friday, even though I've 'almost' made it twice now! :D

I plan on making it down in December with Jim, hopefully Lee and Mark F will be able to make it but if any Midland boys plan on making the trip, maybe we could go in convoy! Invasion of the South!

Is late September any better for everyone?
