It's all up in the air at the moment. There was talk of a pig roast during the day. If it's in march I'm away in Australia for part of it.
I was have way through this post and whisper rang. So I've stuck the monkey on his shoulder

An update from me...

Meeting with Macmillan on Monday

We are going to take this weekend off for good behaviour as it's Mrs W's birthday

With the end in sight I have started making enquiries regarding the launch and hopefully we can get the press there too Have had lots of great ideas

With regards to dates, I won't do the party unless Biffer is there as he has played such an important part in all of this

I'll keep you posted

RIK, brought down an anchor, it's in your cupboard, however I did have an offer of an anchor Chain and rope but I haven't heard anything for a while.

Chased it up today though

Having said that if you have had an offer in keeping with the boat don't turn it down

I have, the same guys who donated the clocks said they would supply the chain and rope, I ask first in case someone had offered already but having most stuff now I thought I would have seen it by now
