Gert,  the secret of success in Spotlight is to walk in and LOOK like you know where you are going. 
Def.  not muslin or cheese cloth,  but DH is pretty hadn't with tape,  and I'm pretty good with staples.   ;D

Real men shop in Spotlight!

And Real women run.

Get Real dash . You are dealing with REAL WOMEN. We live .  We love . We take  a break and OMG.

Hello why not wait until CP had done her thing? Leave the logistics to the experts.

There is plenty of time. I am sure we will all make it to Gracetown.

Let us all relax and go with the flow. Harvey cheese place??

I'm exhausted just catching up on the latest developments (haven't been on the forum for a few days), let alone being at the weekend with all the laughs, drinks and sleepless nights. Looking forward to meeting everyone though. :-)

I don't do running Dashingdon but a brisk walk could be fun.
I actually put off the stress test I was supposed to have because I didn't think I would cope.

I wasn't looking forward to mine a few years ago either Michele but I surprised myself by doing 9 minutes on the treadmill.  I only stopped because I was so thirsty and my knees were aching.  The attendant doctor said he had only had one person have a heart attack during such a test - it was comforting to know they had all the equipment right there to revive you if the worst happened.  I hated it though, running is not something I enjoy and I may not opt to do another one if asked.

Great thanks Michele - the sun was out so it was nice and warm in the bus and the animals were a bit active and not just lying around (some were of course, nothing better to do). 7 hours away yesterday & DH having someone different to talk to did us both good.

At this stage am thinking it may be best to go down and back in car groups. Smaller groups are easier to organise rather than trying to get everyone to the one location to board a bus. Petrol money can then be given to the driver.

Am currently working on allocatiion of beds (harder than place settings at a wedding  :D)

stay tuned

Oh, Cp, I hope we haven't given you too much work?
Maybe all the snorers could be in one location away from everyone else.

Not too far, we don't want to miss out on any of the fun.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
