Posted:Cheers for your hospitality guys, am now shattered after leaving Mike's at 5:00am, got into Brizzol at 8:30 and worked with the kiddies until 3:00...

Cheers Pink for the Saturday night floorspace and Mike for the Sunday sofa bed - sorry for not putting it away, just didn't have my wits about me at 4:30am!!!

I'd like to type about how nice it was to meet you all but I have not got the mental capacity to be poetic and recall each individual - except for Alice, Beth, Mags and Bird all of whom lost to me at Monopoly - only time I'm good with money.

Until next time...

Posted:Hello all!
It was my first time meeting the London spinners and I enjoyed it a lot. ubblove
I wasn't as social as usual, depending on the language it took me a while, so I couln't really figure out who is who at HoP. redface
I think Gelfing was the one who helped me a bit with my juggling skills and brought me a beer.beerchug
Oli showed me the waistwrap, I still hit myself confused.
I enjoyed meeting Pink and Beth.Thanks a lot guys.
There was a guy who gave me and Vanize his monkey fists to spin fire. I couldn't really figure out who he was but thanks a lot to you too.
A special thanks goes to Ben I really liked the talks with you and Vanize and I wish you good luck on all your ways.
I hope I can see you all soon again. biggrin

It was nice hanign with you all on sunday!



special super duper thanks to Ben - you are awesome dude! thanks for the place to crash.



sorry I didn't get to chat longer with whoever loaned me the use of their monkey fist fire poi. I meant to say goodbye and thanks again, but 3 lovely but very hungry women rushed me off to have dinner, and who was I to impede their way?



UCOF and Pink..? - sorry we didn't find more time to catch up.



Dom - that girlfriend of yours is sweetness incarnate.



Ok, hope to see you all again before the year is over.

was a bit bewildered confused



Same here. Must have been the heat - felt as if I'd been out on the p*ss all day, although I hadn't drank a drop confused I do have a little story to tell though, as I almost didn't get to Clapham...

Was supposed to meet Frodo & co. in Southampton, but was 10 minutes late and they weren't there when I arrived, so I thought they'd gone without me. Waited for an hour before getting onto the train home.

As it started to move, I looked out of the window to see a certain hobbit peering about on the opposite platform. I jumped out of my seat and shouted "FRODO!", which launched one half of the bite of sandwich I was eating out of the window and the other half into some poor bloke's lap, whose toes I'd already landed on redface Most of the people in the carriage were looking out of the window too - I think they were expecting to see Elijah Wood.

I got off at the next station and was due to catch a train back. For once I am glad the train was delayed, as Frodo came by car to collect me after it was due, so we could have missed each other twice! ubblol

Anyway, good to see you all. My annual pilgrimage to London is complete smile

Posted:Yeah, there were soooo many people there and I had absolutely no idea who most of you were! I spose it was my own silly fault for not being pro-active enough in saying hello to people, I was ok while people were arriving 1 or 2 at a time, then suddenly about 20 people appeared from nowhere and I got kinda overwhelmed by it all.

But thankyou to everyone who made us Cornish feel so welcome and an even bigger thankyou to Pink (and her mum) for puting up with us being littered around the house for the weekend! hug

Next time........ I'll say hello to more people, I'll spin more in the evening ( I failed due to feeling rubbish after not eating properly for 2 days) and I'll beat Gelfling at Monopoly biggrin !!!

I hope everyone had as good a weekend as I did and I'll see you all soon!

btw vanize, those were Mags' monkey fists, I think! smile
