    Right first things first.

    Some of us have been left behind.

    So lets start by saying all the things that we are going to be looking forward to this weekend. All those wonderful things we are going to be doing.

    I mean,,

    Newark, pah! what's there?

    I mean who want's to travel all the way over to that part of the world anyway? To get there you have to drive through Nottingham from here, and that all ways poses a risk of getting shot.
    And then what's going to be there waiting for you?

    Yeah great a load of motorhomers getting drunk and having fun... Like,,, I need to be getting drunk and having fun?

    Trust me brothers and sisters, you are far far better staying at home and fulfilling all the meaningless tasks that we will be doing this weekend.

    Look at that Grass, Talking to you, isn't it, cut me cut me, its shouting at you.

    Then there's Morrison's begging you to shop their.

    Yeah, who needs to spend the weekend wondering around a field over there, laughing, joking, soaking up the sun, showing your new motorhome toy off.

    No not me :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:



    Balls to it all I say, I am going to be having much more fun sat at home :Blush::Blush::Sad:


    Still have a terrible time those that have gone, and I don't expect one single it was great story. :getmecoat:


    Still, if you are in Liverpool and fancy something to do at the crack of dawn, you could come and watch the Liverpool 1/2 marathon, whereby Mr Haggers, will be pounding the pavements for good causes,

    What you up to?

    Well we will be having FUN at Newark, so you will all be missing out!!

    As for Nottingham, I have lived in Nottingham for most of my life, and not had any trouble or shootings, so don't be afraid to visit Nottingham and Robin Hood, & Nottingham Castle.

    We'll be going on a group walk tomorrow morning and then in the afternoon finishing up the job of sorting out the garden pond. In the evening I'll be down the Village Hall shooting the first couple of rounds of the NSRA Light Sporting Rifle National Postal Team Competition.
    Saturday, not sure - it promises to be a bit miz down here in Devon, so might do something really intersesting like tidy the office. :Sad:
    Sunday I'll be at the shooting field practising my Field Target - I did abysmally at last Sunday Regional Comp. - definitely lack of practice. :Doh:

    Next week we'll be getting the MH ready for its first trip out this year; going to Wales and meeting up with Nearly Retired on Thursday for a couple of weeks.

    So there's quite a lot of good stuff happening quite soon. :thumb::BigGrin:

    Its weekend at home time at our house.
    Though Isabel and I will be hitting the shops on Saturday , lots of nice summer clothes in now :BigGrin:
    Ralph is going to the airport with Jacob checking out the planes, taking Isaac and his BMX so he can jump the mud ramps with all the other bmx'rs at the view point.
    Saturday evening Ralph and I will be going out for a meal and then back to Our village club. Its been newly renovated and has a great atmosphere . We dont have to get a babysitter now so its great. We leave the kids alone , and as long as we bring them home a big bag of monstermunch they are happy:Laughing:
    Sunday , Ralph and my( gas fitter :thumb:) uncle are fitting a proper outside BBQ point on the motorhome.
    Im going to wander Newmillerdam woods with the dogs and kids for a few hours then cooking Roast beef n Yorkshire puds for a late lunch.
    We've never even been to a caravan or motorhome show. Never fancied one , though if it were to be with MHF it would be like a big meet and shopping , so we may have to try and get to one.

    We are going 2-3 miles down the road and staying at the Kelvedon Hatch CCC with our local DA.

    Its free, with hardstanding and EHU, only catch is that its countrycare weekend. So we have to do some work on Saturday around the site. I wont be working much, whats new you may ask:Rofl1:. I hopefully will be on the catering side of things and making tea and coffee for the workers.

    Even though supposedly a work weekend we will have a marquee up and have lots of fun. With a group lunch too.

    Neil is up in London tonight for a drink up so going away local means we can still get away.

    Would have like to have been at Newark, but have no money to spend on the diesel let alone buying things at the show that we dont need.

    Although it is a great get together of FUNSTERS. Have fun!

    Pat

    yeah Like I would be worried about 70 grumpy old motorhome fun men chasing me round Newark, pah, they would never catch me for a start, they would probably be too drunk and Im too fast:Eeek::Eeek: :pray:

    [HI][STRIKE]did i really say that [/STRIKE][/HI]

    However, the 70 beautiful motorhome funster ladies? well, they would have no problem catching me, after all I would slow down for them :BigGrin::smalllove: :lipstick::blonde2:

    I shall be sitting around someplace at my smallholding, supping beer, sowing seeds, weeding, empire building and watching the world go by, whilst Southern Water Board, dig up a neighboring field to find out how they managed to switch my water off. In the mean time the lazy buzzard will be circling overhead looking for Rabbits, hares will dart from view whenever he passes over and the small birds start collecting grass and horsehair to make this years nests. Holiday makers start to make their way to woolacombe, passing my gate, the motorhomers all waving as they do so. (when I am taking a morning coffee break in my motorhome that is, hee hee.)
