Stopping for directions, we were handed this note and directed through a petrol station forecourt … needless to say we were still lost.

Everyone should have been sitting in the correct order and then shuffling down the line…

Time Flies

Where has all the time gone? It's almost the end of the year, what with only 8 weeks to go it's starting to hit home what we're actually doing. To say we are organised would be a lie - a big fat lie. So what is sorted? Well, flights and jabs, and  ... erm ... that's it. We've got a…
