Dico's unwell so he can't make it either. :(

Sorry, we would both rather be there. Maybe next month?

I think the girls enjoyed them selves as they were not so much in the minority so the topic of handbags and shoes could be discussed and where next to go shopping so makes up for springs and things.

Don't panic. You would spend bugger all at the outlet village in Bicester.
I had heard good things about it, but when I got there I discovered it was rubbish. It was a wasted journey for me & I only live 30 minutes away.

Freeport is miles better & much nearer to you too.
& if you want a trip out to a really good one, go to Cheshire Oaks in Ellesmere Port. Bit of a trek though!

I can't wait Paul, as long as I can tell you all about shoes and handbags.

It was nice to see everyone!

Unfortunately I didn't find any shoes I loved to add to the 5 pairs I have already bought this week. But I did try on some Jimmy Choo's :D
They didn't have the colour of handbag I wanted in the Radley shop, so I was rather disappointed. BUT I did get some lovely stuff for my holiday and a cute jumper!

Paul, I know you genuinely want to know about shopping. I'm REALLY look forward to telling you all about my shopping trip(s)! Apparently I am very good at giving recounts of my adventures, it's almost as good as being there yourself and takes almost as long to retell it as it did to experience it! So allow yourself plenty of time, as we shopped for over 5 hours!

I would love to show you my demo of a wishbone again. You never know I might even know about a manifold or something else by then! If not, there's always the topic of shoes that I'm quite good at!

Sounds interesting, depends on the weather but it looks like it may be a dry day and the Elan could do with a run.
All pre December 31st 1986 so that makes for an interesting mix as the classes are well laid out, up to 1300cc, 1301 - 1600cc, 1601- 2500cc, 2500 - 3500cc, plus some others. wonder how many make the 6 hour run?
