  1. I’ll do my best, but I don’t get back from Spain until after 1am that morning. If I fail to make it, let me recommend Il Bordello Italian restaurant within staggering distance: portions are huge, delicious and reasonably priced. Just don’t have a starter or you’ll never get through the main, and forget all ideas of pudding. Hope to see you there …

    1. I have visited Il Bordello twice thanks to your recommendation Tstrummer. It certainly floated my boat both times.

  2. I’d like to be there but I can’t so, again
    Husband is going to be working in the hospital all day and I can’t leave old Mum and old collie unless there’s someone here.
    I hope that you all have a wonderful day and good luck to anyone who’s taking part in competitions.

    1. PS – I will make sure that everyone behaves nicely here in exchange for lots of photos on the day!

      1. I wouldn’t hold your breath re piccies, none posted since the Bristol do in Feb for us mere mortals ;) eh BD

  3. I’m torn: I’d like to go, but then you’d discover my two heads and terrible personality!

    Oh well, unless something comes up, you can expect to find a Kitty there :).

  4. Would have liked to attend but will be back in Hyères by then. Maybe next year… Wondering what one does once there – chat, drink, enter a competiton?

  5. Was really hoping to join you but I have laryngitis and am currently utterly unable to speak so will probably have to miss out this time – unless the situation improves by tomorrow afternoon of course…

  6. Hey there,
    Spending some of the afternoon in Surrey, so I’m going to try to come over, depending on what time I finish there. Hopefully things will still be going (not *too* much the worse for wear?) at about half five?

  7. Kairos is planning to be there so I suppose I will need to come along and keep him company
