Oh NO!

Just came over to pinkwitch2000 Towers. Planned to leave my car here while I go to a model engineer exhibition at Alexandra Palace.

Around 4am Pinkwitch texted me to say "Don't come I'm ill", in a "I don't want you to catch it" sort of way, around 6.30am I got up, dressed and jumped in the car.... without looking at my phone. D'oh! Well I'm here now and not driving back. So I'm still going to the exhibition then devoting the rest of the weekend to lounging on pillows, sipping wine and watching dancing girls... Looking after PW.

Any way back to the Model Engineering... I don't make models myself but I use the same tools as model engineers. I hope to pick up a few bargains in the tool and materials at the exhibition and see if there are any new developments in lathes, milling machines, CNC atomic restructuring machines, and look longingly at very expensive hardware. Should be meeting ian_wyrdness outside Alexandra Palace in about 2 hours.

Mr Wyrdness... if you're reading this... save me a place in the queue.

PW... if you're up and reading this... Text me to let me know 1. how you are and 2. if you need me to pick anything up on the way home.
