    Yup I'll be there with Wigston. Looking forward to it now.

    Oh and if anyone from band is reading this (especailly Garry) I'm definately not drinking lager at the moment. Honest.

    As I said Di, a special perfomance enhancing drink called "not lager" ;)

    Anyway - if anyone here sees me then come and say hello. I'm not sure what time I'll be at the venue - we have a late draw so will be rehearsing, but anyway...come say hello :D
