Posted:Well, we survived the last one. Some of my body hair has grown back, and Geoffrey should be out of hospital by January... so why not do it all over again? Lyndon would have wanted us to... and I think Isobel is still in the park somewhere anyway...

For those of you who weren't at the last firey fandango, I shall be throwing wide the doors of my (borrowed) Sevenoaks home, and inviting anyone and everyone to come and spend the weekend. There will be lots of paraffin, lots of spinners, lots of all sorts of things in fact. Including baked products. Y'all are welcome to come for as long or as short a time as you feel like - stay for a week or just pop in for a spin over the weekend. It's easy to get to and there's plenty of bed space. Or floor space, unless they bring even more lap-tops than last time...

For more details and some critics' reviews see 'Kent 28th - 30th Nov', but bear in mind that this one is going to be a whole lot better. There will be:
weavesmileyMore bed space! (well, at least one extra bed)
weavesmileyMore Michal Kahn! (author of 'Poispinning', mentor, and all round poi goddess)
weavesmileyMore baked products! (going to start baking any day now... fill up the attic)
weavesmileyMore weird stuff going on in the garage! (see 'Pounce... parental discretion is advised)
weavesmileyMore working computers! (It's fixed it's fixed at last at last!)
weavesmileyMore cute poi boys!
weavesmileyMore foxy poi chicks!

So write it in your diaries, tingle with excitement, stock up on paraffin and get ready to set the town on fire! (note to Big Brother: this is a metaphor)

See you in January... ubbloco

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:Right, well... and has everyone recovered from New Year's yet? I am just struggling back into some semblance of mental cohesion... I seem to be in Oxford... and covered in mud... and wearing a sports bra....

No, joking about the sports bra. I am still very confused, however - apologies for the long silence. I am waiting to collect my housemate and a new phone, after mine deceased, (I mean the phone deceased, not the housemate) and sitting in the most expensive internet cafe I've ever seen. This will be brief.

Essentially, you're all welcome to come as early or as late as you want. I should have a new phone by this afternoon, and I'll post the number when I make it home, but here is a link to a map of the locale.

The station to travel to, if you make your way by train, is called "Bat & Ball" - may be quickest to catch a fast train to Sevenoaks and change there.

See y'all soon.

Posted:Less than one week to go! I staggered back through the door (at last) about two hours ago... to find a delivery from HOP waiting for me...

We now have a hundred foot of wick with which to build the next generation of Monster Poi. Those who were here last time will remember the (somewhat large) poi we made out of four hanging baskets... well, this time they're going to be just as big, and actually usable as well!

Will this madness never end?

Posted:Brothers and Sisters, I have a dream. I envisage a hollow sphere the size of a beach ball, the outer surface a woven web of kevlar wick, the whole a light and dextrous object with which even behind the back weaves will be possible...

I also have a new phone! The number is 07989 596532. See y'all soon.

Posted:so out of curiosity, what's the story on the welcoming party now? will i be seeing loads of HOPpers at the airport?? biggrin mech sent you a PM i believe, but he asked me to ask you as well if it's ok that he come up for a day or so. i told him it was plenty fine, but i thought i'd just ask as well. i wanna meet as many HOPpers in one trip as possible!!! ubblol

oooh, getting close....i'm soooo excited!

oh ya, i think i may have mentioned this before as well, but might i borrow people's fuel while i'm there? or can someone take me to buy some? i don't think the airlines will let me bring any along! ubblol

Posted:On the fuel front- no probs. The garage very close to joes sells paraffin in 4l bottles. I'll be making one or two trips there. They had a plentiful supply for the last weekend, so as long as there is no sudden increase in the number of local paraffin heaters we should be fine and dandy.

Er, dunno bout the airport. Definitely me, Joe and Frodo I think. Not sure who else.
Why? does pounce wanna get off the plane to thousands of adoring fans? ubblol

Posted:Tee hee. Not very many days at all to go! The deal with the airport, as I understand it, is this:

Frodo, Mand and I will be driving up to meet you from Sevenoaks, and I think El is coming straight across from London. Then we'll all be heading down back home. We should have time to stock up on fuel, bake more cakes, bags all the best beds and even have a bit of a spin before everyone else arrives, though I have no idea what time other people are getting here, how they're coming, stuff like that.

So it goes.
