Thanks all :-) - walking around with a silly fixed grin feels really odd!!!
As for the Searider get together - would have been tempted but we don't collect her until Saturday afternoon so will have to gracefully let you all down!!
The Lundy trip sounds great but apart from the distance to Somerset a bit of a major undertaking for complete newbies and if it gets rough I don't want to snap a nail
Now then chaps let me find my salty hairy sealegs and once a bit more confident in self and new RIB will come along (with the family if that helps answer any of the other implied questions - lol) and annoy you with lots of stupid newbie questions and "oooh is'nt your one fast" comments
