    Home safe and slightly squiffy. Thanks for a lovely evening everyone, especially those like Spy who travelled a long way up north. Great venue, I also chatted with loads of punters and we nearly bought a tent for a man who was desperate, so VERY impressed that everyone threw in a fiver and we made fifty quid. Seriously, I was dead proud of you all.

    Great day. Brilliant meeting you all. We got back to Chester, had a few wine glasses of tequila in Frieda’s local then drank expensive whisky and smoked cigars in his shed until 3am!

    Thanks to all, especially Frieda and Jules for a top day/night, and nice hanging out with stethoscope and mauvais at last.

    Great to meet up with everyone yesterday. The best thing about me not drinking is that I can remember it :D that's a first :oops:
    Thanks to farmerbarleymow for organising it and thanks to all those first timers and I hope you'll all be back next year.
    sojourner had better stay off the booze the night before next time :D you were missed Soj x

    I wish I could have made this. Maybe Hebden Bridge next year!

    sojourner Where's me readers?

    Sorry sorry sorry. Since I've cut right down on my boozing, I appear to have turned into a total fucking lightweight, and get a crushing hangover just looking at the label on a wine bottle :oops::(:rolleyes: Well done for everyone who made it through that disgusting weather too.

    Summer in Hebden sounds good. Promise to lay off the sauce the night before too.

    Great photo :)

    We waited in the hail on a frosty day, for a train that was 20 mins late, at a bleak station only notable for inspiring Paul Simon to write 'homeward bound'. The north is as cold, wet, grey and miserable as I remember it.

    Still it didn't kill us and it was worth it to meet you lovely urbs. You missed out soj.

    friendofdorothy it was lovely to meet you and buscador. Sorry I wasn't wearing my ballgown but it was dressdown Saturday in Manchester. We can dress up in the summer when you come north again :D

    So where's the thread for the next one then Shirl? Strike while the iron is hot, and all that, and set a date. :thumbs:

    It'll get lost in all the Christmas shenanigans. I'll post it 2nd of January when life's back to normal :)

    And I hope you'll no longer be betossed adrift in the middle of the stormy North Sea Dovydaitis and can come to Hebden. :)
