Update from P: missing NZ. Life here is not cheaper, better and all those other things you hear about America. We're only here because Mr S got a great job offer [or seemed to]. Ho hum, only 22 months to go...

Aha! and as if by magic, there you are.

It will be opening this weekend and as it was your suggested name that won the day you will need to be around to do the honours & to cut the ribbon.

Has been on to the suppliers. The bar is already stocked. We just need a volunteer to wash the glasses.

I feel honoured and I will repay that honour by spending as much time in there as I did the old bar

So, the phone rings

Mr BEVS: Did I leave my lunch box there?

Me : Yis ! Looked like it was a good day old.

Mr BEVS: Good ! I'm in the area. I'll pop in for it then.

Me: You can do that if you want. It's all clean and shiny now. I gave the mess - pasta, salad cream, pineapple & whatever else it was to the hens

Mr BEVS : Disappointed silence.
