    My goodness this thread has taken a most odd non comping turn this afternoon.

    Is it not a tad early to be on the wine? One has hardly enough time to finish ones Pimms.
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    Is that one of your Northernish expressions again?

    If you mean London it's usually the Big Smoke or Old Smoke and refered to time before the clean air act.

    It only takes a small win to boost me back up again, but it is taking a long time in coming

    I must admit to a bit of a dry patch myself but then this time of year I don't do that much comping. I have also been feeling a bit naffed after the whole thing which I can't talk about because it's stupid.
