We were going to be away this weekend in Bristol celebrating Stevy and Peter's tenth wedding anniversary with a meal at Budokan, but alas I've been stricked with some kind of gastric bug which is showing no sign of going away. While seeing everybody would have been excellent, I don't think my being unpleasantly loud at both ends would add anything to the festive spirit, so we'll just have to say
HAPPY TENTH ANNIVERSARY, YOU TWO! AND MANY MORE YEARS!
(and sorry mrph to let you down as well - you will be able to get back to Cov without us, wont you?)
Now I think it's time to go and lie down a bit with something warm and hope that the cramps give up a little.
