Well, nearly finished packing and only taken 3 hours (and the rest). Off to Portugal tomorrow and the builders are movig in here tomorrow. Enough rubbish to fill a skip - and reckon we've packed enough to fill a skip too. My bag weights 14kgs, and the kids weigh the same, twice, and they are only little. Emily is excited to be flying on an orange and white plane, Alex (two years old) wants to know if there is food on board, and I'm wondering how the Iceland situation is and whether I shall be luckier departing the UK this time than I was when fog-bound for Guernsey last week. Wow, need an holiday after this stressful day.......

Straight from the horse's mouth

Today was a great day out. Met up with Vee from Peltours early at Paddington Station for a day out at the races. Arrived at Cheltenham which was brimming with people buzzing around, frequenting the public houses, reading the newspaper sports pages, and generally having a good time. The day was hosted by Ladbrokes excellently and my thanks to them. The wine flowed, the gin was a perfect tonic for all the losers I selected, and the Gold Cup winner was a worthy winner, trained by Nigel Twiston-Davies. Mike Cattermole, the racing commentator, gave us all a pep talk on what he thought might win - interesting and covered his back with most of the selections. He did pick the winner in the first though. The day ended early evening and it was quite a demanding task to board a bus for our return journey to the train station, followed by the train journey back to London. Sad, though, to have to endure the mindless swearing of certain loud and foul-mouthed Chaltenaham races goers who were not bothered about whom they offended with their sharp tongues. A great day though; now back to the marketing, PR and representation that is required to be able to afford to attend Cheltenham next year.
