Oh wow! Now I'm dribbling...

But... spent the day in the new abode, unpack, sort, unpack, sort, ad infinitum.

B-I-L suggested a take-away/drag-in, so we did. Curry-wurst and fries, extra curry sauce plus ragout sauce, mayo and ketchup on the side. Yummy

This will be the last night camping with my in-laws, we intend to sleep in the new place tomorrow, I'll be in box #73, OH hasn't picked hers yet.

That makes sense. We don't have the connection to worry about, unless in the unlikely event that it's cheaper to fly BA into Belfast via London/Manchester, which it never is, so meh.

Plus one. (Swiss French keyboard cant find the 'plus' key.) Typical bloody French... .

Buy some 'kick arse' boots whilst you're there?

Enjoy it, best wishes also to Little Lion on his new adventure.

Thanks all. Here is the "Little" Lion, ordering his own sake in a Wagamama and ready to take on the world, not least because of the big, black Dunlop safety boots on his feet that I had to buy him for his course. I don't know how this happened.
