    Uopdate.... Departure times

    Depending on how things go with a large 01 June tender we are embroiled in, I may be able to leave the City earlier than I had hoped on Friday, subject to trains being available.

    In a perfect world I would be out of the door at 16:00, which allowing for me getting changed, London traffic, queues at check-in may etc. make an 18:30 train (or thereabouts) a possibilty.

    Either way, I should know by this evening..... Watch this space.

    PM sent to Wanderers.

    Hi Richard,

    Be warned there are very few trains available for friday and saturday, even to just exchange, two of us have changed our times from tomorrow afternoon to very early tomorrow morning and we couldn't even get the same train at 5.50am.

    My waterproofs are packed, not worried about the rain it's WorthingWelsh keeps spilling his drink on me when he's pissed, and it's his birthday weekend shindig

    Have a good trip
    LBL

    Life's too short.

    Looking wet for the weekend, still there should be plenty of beer in the Ibis.

    Probably not going to be the warmest or dryest Bank Holiday on record. Still, it was nice for the Socialist one at the start of the month and it's the last until August, so can't complain..... much.

    I am sure we intend to, its just more pleasurable when its dry, but hey ho I am getting used to riding in a wet climate, my pal in Spain who am visiting after the weekend tells me its not good down there either.

    Richard I will probably arrive at the Ibis around eight, would you (or anyone else) like me to try and get some food plated up for you ?

    John.

    Hi John,

    We will grab something to eat at Folkestone and maybe take a baguette across to the Ibis. If we then need other than liquid sustenance, Wapping has promised a "chippy" available until 11pm just around the corner (I wonder if they'd do us a deep fried Mars Bar....?).

    Thanks for considering us tho

    Andy & Jen

    The nice lady at Ibis may have some frozen meals in the kitchen that can be micro'd for late arrivals.

    Arrived back to Norfolk at 2130 so much quicker than I thought.

    Great weekend as usual. Blip in the weather Saturday but all part of the fun.
    Nice to catch up with Andy and Jen and bump into Brian at the bar in the Ibis.
    Good to meet John and his amusing dice game. Trust you had a safe jaunt down to sunny Spain from Dijon.

    Richard a stroke of culinary genius spending the evening in a Takeaway Pizza shop. Vino and beer, accommodating staff,( and of course the dice !), a great evening.

    Many thanks again Richard for arranging another successful jaunt. Catch up soon.

    Well it boiled on the way back....

    Having had my 1600 go hotter than a toaster on the 40 minutes to battle through the Bank Holiday traffic from Tower Bridge to the A2 on Friday evening and thyen the odd heat-up in France.... it hit the stops at the Blackwall Tunnel on the return journey... Hotter and redder in the waterworks department that a hot red thing....

    Got it the two miles to home and now await BMW recovery's pleasure.

    ============

    Hot 1600's apart, a good Wander. My thanks to those wot joined

    Must be a London related problem as it was fine in France!!!

    Hope they get to the bottom of the problem at Park Lane
