As I said on Monday I cannot make it. My son was going but his wife has insisted on a weekend away.
He's just down the road - he can call up to see us anytime. Black Knight, sorry to hear about your father. The partner of one of our much-loved team members is undergoing a similar ordeal right now so we know how it goes. Feeling rubbish through chemo seems to be a transient thing so I hope he feels better soon.

Haha[.][.]
If I remember correctly, ginger biscuits are viewed as the spawn of Satan...

Only our John eats ginger biscuits. Hateful things!

They contaminate every other biscuit within a 3 mile radius with their horrid flavour.
They are the work of Satan they really are....
Bangers!
You must have known I was coming!

I know I do not turn up often, but I too eat Ginger Biscuits. To protect then from normal digestives and the like they just need their own small container (keeps them fresher being away from any 'normal' ones).

Well, 250 miles round trip done today to see Bill & the old girl, it was worth every second!!!!
I got to say a huge thanks to Bill for giving us this wonderful opportunity to count rivets & the odd bolt replacement.
I took just under 500 photos, I’m going to give photogrammetry a go, apparently you take lots of pics & the software stitches them all together to create a 3D model, fingers crossed I may stand an outside chance of getting the shape of the nose right, or probably wrong lol
Thanks ever so much Bill & the team!
Cheers
Wayne

It was great having you guys over today. Enjoyed every minute - and not a ginger biscuit in sight.

Cheers, everyone.
