Apologies fellas, my mind been busy with a recent Job Interview i had and ended up forgetting this celebration. When i got to my phone and saw the reminder was already past 10PM, so a bit too late to make an appearance.

:( :( :( :bonk: :bonk: :bonk:

Set your reminders for 6hrs in advance rather than 20mins!!!

You missed a good evening: food was good and company was great: Martin, Sue, Grace and I had a lovely time. Sadly Pete had dropped out earlier due to illness, so the four of us had to make the best of it!

Plenty of enlightening conversation: after discussing Star Wars, films in general, sculpture, and serious illness we turned to more cheerful topics like the Ashes! Ah maybe not. :banghead:

Have a good Xmas everyone :smt111 :smt111

And Happy New Year.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 18th Jan: see you all then provided we all remember :poke: :poke:

maybe,

my elan's head gasket is still waiting for sunnier days, and my celica CV joint is being replaced today by the garage (i hope) so it all depends if they manage to complete the job or not. im currently driving the 4x4 to work... at 16-20 mpg im sticking exclusively to essential trips :bonk:

As Tuga2112 is doubtful, and it's been pretty quiet and I need to get ready for a Lotus weekend :drunk: :gathering: in Lytham St Annes I will now give tonight a miss.

See you in February :D :D

good news from here. my Celica is back on the road with new shocks, and springs, and 2 arms in one side. plus a oil valve thingy and cv joint....

the elan is still waiting for sunny days to get the head gasket sorted... but if anyone wants to lend a double garage :wink: :poke: :wink: for 2-4 weeks i may be able to achieve the same goal without depending on weather factors
