Blimey, short term memory issue!

Nothing that a good weekend of coupe hugging won't sort laugh

Thanks to all who managed to make the annual pilgrimage all the way to Carlisle, from both ends of the UK. It's always an honour and a privilege to play host to you guys (and galls), and it's a pleasure knowing such a great bunch of genuine people.

JeffUK; great speech, which I'm sure was echoed by everyone present.

T, enjoy your new sprinty, complete with lacquer laugh

Neil, Anita, Brian and Pauline, thanks so much for the prezzies. Very generous and totally unexpected but gratefully received, I've had to stash the choccies from the Staff as they can smell them at 30yds!

Safe journey home everyone and hope to see you all again at some time in the new year.

On behalf of my staff and myself, I wish you all the very best for Christmas and the new year.

Wouldn't miss it for anything Rob, the extra mile you go to in feeding us is very much appreciated smile The coffee this morning was about the nicest I've ever had too and the "meet" no.2 a great chance to fill in some of the chat missed last night laugh

The young 'uns again jump at the chance to come and meet everyone, it's Kip's (Chris) 3rd dinner and my Ben's 5th! They are both made really welcome smile I flunked it after the dinner and went straight to the digs as I was knackered and full but they two managed it out till 2.30 spurred on no doubt by good company!

Best to yourself and family Rob for the Christmas and NY period snowman

It should be noted that Jack turned up in spite of the pain barrier after his bike accident which smashed up his shoulder and other bits, well done mate and all the best for the op tomorrow smile

Did I win the prize for the longest drive this year?

The bloody wires in the Cupra's window mechanism went ping on the motorway, half an hour from home: spent the first half hour sorting the alternator on the coupe and another hour getting the window to (hopefully) stay up.

Sorry we didn't make this guys.

Regrettably we had a water leak that brought down the ceiling and left a proper mess in the house frown

We usually like to tie up the Carlisle meet with a visit to see family in Yorkshire. Trish did get away on Sunday morning but yes we missed the meet and I've missed the whole trip frown

Aye, bad luck there Bob.

But don't worry - I ate your dinner so it wasn't wasted.
