    I was thinking of getting the van out next weekend, and go somewhere were we could do a little xmas shopping

    We're in Stoke but i thought it would be nice to travel for about an hour maybe two, to somewhere, were theres some good shopping say,

    Cheshire Oak's - Chester
    McCarther glen - Mansfield
    Bull ring - Birmingham
    Trafford Centre - Manchester
    York at a push

    Anyone fancy any of these or know of a place where we could arrange a meet

    Wife is going to the German market in Manchester with her wimmin friends. Says it's good or maybe she just wants to get away from me. How to make sure she forgets her crdit card is the hard part.

    You know it makes sense in coming down sarf, just be careful arriving after 6pm, no not the mafia, but the causeway onto the island will be at high tide at 8pm and therefore be covered.

    Theres fancy dress, free hog roast, and something on at the club house, not that were fussed about that.

    It will be a good crack.

    It's a magic card trick. But better than anything Paul Daniels ever did. It goes like this. You take this small piece of plastic and hide it in a hole. You say the magic word PIN. And it comes back but the amazing thing is hundreds of miles away all you money has gone out of your bank account.

    It's Black Magic. You'll like it, but not a lot.

    Your many years now I been waiting for the second half of the trick. Put the card in the hole, say NIP and you money re-appears.

    Cheshire Oaks is useless and Chester is expensive. Were going to Oswetry and Shrewsbury. The shops there are good and they are really nice places.

    There's a couple of good camp sites in between. The one we normally stop on is a c&cc site. The bus stops over the road for easy access into both towns.
