Hiya you lot, (val, alan and keith) nice to know you miss us.......last night we were socialising in another van...red wine and 'picky bits'... very nice too. Today we have been out all day walking on the cliff tops enjoying the sunshine which has returned to Lagos. Quite cold, (or should I say very cold) but we had the fleeces on and the views across the bay were stunning. Just got home and had meat and tattie pie with a suet crust washed down with bianco and ice.

I can see its going to be one h### of a Christmas, whoopee !

I already have one tin of Haggis in my van store Val but yes it would be good if you could bring some more I may even get these southerners to enjoy it!

Keith, you must have forgotton Frank does'nt take a dram, Macieira is his poison......mine too if its in coffee....
....still don't know what Minky Pouys are but I'll put the oven on ready, I'll try owt once.
