When you've all finished stuffing your faces could you tell us something useful such as whether the car park is muddy or not?  :}

You can take that as normal. Don't wash  your car before you go, let the wife do it when you get home {-)  or maybe not %%

You think I'll get home then, that's reassuring anyway.

I'm told that due to an accident on the M1 this morning it's likely that a lot of people from down South didn't make it to the exhibition.

Were there any boats at the show or was it just all cakes and pies? This topic seems to have been well and truly hijacked.

ok boats first, cake second. Have spent all my pocket money on Sea Urchin to keep me amused during the show while Phil talks (I know, hard to believe) and will be visiting all stands that sell interesting things to go on my new fishing boat.
Was soooo wonderful to see all my new Mayhem and other shipmate friends and  Martin, you can't have a Junehem, just wouldn't work!
Debbie, your cakes are heaven on earth! Alan, she's too good for you!
More of the same tomorrow then.....
