Well, it's finally arrived. We're booked on the 1555 out of Newcastle THIS AFTERNOON!!. The bags are packed and everything else is ready. Ang is suffering almost a full day at work but I work from home and have nothing to do today at all bar count down the minutes till I leave the house at 3. As far as I am concerned, that's the start of it all. Snacks for the trip are ready plus a litre of Gin & Tonic, glasses with lime in and a bottle of wine sitting in the fridge. We'll be quite merry when we arrive in Nottingham!! Hope to be able to say "Hi" to a few of you down there. Won't be drinking in the hotel bar much given the Hilton prices but may make it out in the town this evening. Bye for now - see you all tomorrow!
