Safe home - thanks for the tow Geoff, and the offers from everyone who noticed my motorhome was stuck in the mud! Fortunately it didn't sink further as the weekend progressed. Linda was not so lucky.
The rain didn't dampen spirits - it just left a tide mark on everything! Wellies are wonderful... So are disposable gloves!
(They save ruining a good manicure when pulling up tent pegs)
What a wonderful weekend we had. Thanks Paddleworth! The lovely comments above are very kind. Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We didn't win the war but we enjoyed the battle. Good to hear Bruce's clever monologues, I'll have to wait to hear him sing.
It was great to hear Dave F and Bill W at their 'extended' session in the Commercial on Sunday(!!) and the Wilsons were 'new' to me. Wow,how many different harmonies?
Thanks Ali, for asking us to sing and for guiding us to Greenfield last night. It was brill. I loved it when Pete (Shellback) sang his Pirate song and cried with laughter at his variation of Gaudete! Impeccable timing. I sang myself hoarse with all the choruses but that's not a complaint. It was an amazing night with a room full of happy voices. It was a great privilege to share a weekend that's so special.
I'm tired. I need to rest mind and voice. Great to put 'mudcat' names to faces and catch up with everyone again.
