Guys,

Mrs Bob and the duck are interested in coming along at least to the Banter if not the monday nights meal. Problem is we have loads of peeps with us and if they have all left by the weekend we can be there. I'd put it at 50/50 at the moment.  Are we too late?

Phew, just managed to get back in here after being told I wasn't allowed for the last few days! Not sure if we will or won't make it. I am "on duty" from today till the 30th, and not sure what time I will be released, as it clashes with my neices birthday. So maybe, maybe not, we will have to pkay it by ear. I suspect I will be free to join you next year if not.

So who might be around for a pint lunchtime on the 31st? Looks like we won't make the banter now, but could make 31st lunchtime for a quick catch up, anyone?

I'm there or both nights (as are a few of us) so suspect there might be a few that could be persuaded into a lunchtime pint.

Dave and I would be up for meeting up with you Ally - do you have a pub in mind? Is the Swan still any good?

 

The other thing is that Caprifool would have liked to come. He is currently in Birmingham and was wondering if he could cadge a lift with anyone if he gave a donation towards the petrol

Unfortunately I have something that resembles real flu, the full Monty cold/shivers, aches, headaches and we have decided I won't be fit enough to attend. 

 

Plus of course I don't want to be the plague carrier and infect everyone else .

 

Anyway have a good night everyone

Yes, it's bad news from the Simian / Pud camp, I'm afraid. We're going to have to cancel. 

Monkey has been ill with the flu for a few days and is stuck in bed looking like death. We'd hoped he would be picking up a bit by now but no such luck.  I've heard of banter flu (I catch it every year!) but never before a banter. 

And last night I "enjoyed" one hell of a gallbladder attack which has left me feeling really beaten up, off my food and sleep deprived. That'll teach me to eat camembert and chocolate all day.

Basically, we're wrecks and should be put out of our miseries like Old Yeller. ?

 

Sorry not to be able to make it. We both really look forward to this banter each year. Have fun everyone.
