Well my back went again last Friday ................ when i was sleeping after nights ???????????????

So on sat morning i prob shouldnt have delivered the gazeebo to Dave M and then spent the weekend up at the Newark Air Museum. The 70+ year olds were fitter than me.

Drove all weekend on a balance of painkillers and pain. So now off work for my 3 dayshifts and wondering if i shall cancel next weekends holiday instead of doing Himley and Stoneleigh.
Might just manage the Sunday at Himley.

It will be safer as Debs isnt going there Twisted Evil

That's brilliant Very Happy Although I did notice a few design flaws - mainly the fact that if he car isn't there at the front there's a bloody great hole letting all the wind and rain in

Did they give any reasons for the cancelation? Still there is Gaydon to look forward to for your Mini bits. If there is anything you want sooner I will be doing the London to Brighton run in the middle of May and can pick you up some bits.

Your blown air heating may be working very well but can Collette put up with the smell? Laughing

After a 6 day manic attempt....i've thrown the towel in..

Walle wont make it to Stoneleigh Sad

After working from 7:00 till usually midnight, most days, the work & money required is too much.
I could have got him there, but he would have been seriously bodged. So i've decided to take a bit longer & do a proper job.

On the plus side, for me at least, i'll be there tmrw with the munchkin. May even camp over & stsy monday.

Hi, Just a quick message to say how great it was meet up again at Stoneleigh. cheers
A little disappointing that there wasn't a few more of us but I know there were other things on, etc.

Sunday's weather was much better than anticipated and the show seem quite successful.

We had a bit of a ride out to a pub in the evening and we were joined by the two Robs.

Not a bad weekend.....despite the weather.

A great weekend for sure. I've not seen it that busy for years (the Sunday that is). There were a lot more cars on club stands, well all except ours. We usually have 13-14 Scamps but this year only half that number. The show was deserted on Monday (i guess someone saw the weather report)

Still we did have a cracking time and the mixed grill was of the scale Very Happy

Thanks for organising the meal. Hug
Once the plates (Platers) arrived there was not much conversation from our end of the table

I was glad to get out of the house as i was going "stir crazy". Mind you i dont think my back really benefitted from it.

Roll on "Darn Sarf" and the Hants Hol tank party
