Val - we expect somewhere between 12 - 20 coming and going during the afternoon but it probably all depends on the weather.

Veronica, Magic Cochin (Celia) and Cliff, The Chicken Lady + S are probably the ones you know of from here, plus Sue who gave us the pekins, a dozen friends from the village and some blog friends from a little further afield. Plus who knows who might just drop in unannounced. That makes it easy for anybody to come or not as they choose depending on how they feel on Sat morning and, of course, the weather.

Sorry that nothing turned up to enable you to join us, Simon. frown

No worries, Ruth - c'est la vie, and there is always next year or maybe a meet-up at some other location. 

Danuta, we will raise a glass to you. And to Stornaway. And to Loch Fyne. Hic. sloe_gin 

Fiona has made a few gallons of elderberry champagne to jolly things along. Many toasts! laugh

Sounds good, Danny, though not a lot of stalwart forumites I notice ......

Are Seth and Jean (Gottaknit) going too? Chris (Paperman) & Anne? What about MOS & Heather?

Wish I was going...I will be thinking of you all. I'll raise a glass to you all some time in the afternoon (gives me an excuse for an early drink)

Just to let you know what you're missing big_laugh

On that note, Simon, we have still enjoying hugely enjoyable supper with Veronica. I have sneaked upstairs for a ciggie before coffee, and to keep an eye on you lot. tongue

Still raining, dammit doh
