Yes heartily looking forward to it, I regard these games as a 'must do'. Sunday is handy this year as it means I can watch England v Fiji :D

Yes, a high point of the year. I'll be wending my way slowly home from London tonight, so excitement levels will rise more then. One annoying thing is I can't find my old kilt pin, so if I can't find it tomorrow, I may have to have a flappy kilt. That will frighten the Hun :good:

Oh God I just remembered I was supposed to send pics of my plume holder Craig, so sorry, did you get one sorted? Could possibly wip something together for you if you needed it in the hour I have tomorrow :-D

Just sorted my rifle, every now and then I get a flier but that inconsistency fits with the inconsistency of Italian ammo production so just makes it more realistic! A good 8 now as I dust the feathers with a feather duster......

Finally getting to the writing point where I am enjoying it, it was rather late coming but pushes my excitement up a little bit.

Thanks, I'm sure I'll learn fast :D

I have been looking forward to this game all year. Many people have tried to sway me with invitations both for tonight and tomorrow but I was resolute in my determination. This morning as I sorted my pea green webbing, kilt and Tam O'Shanter and, booked my hotel for Leicester so I would be bright and not too late tomorrow my excitement rose to 10.

This general feeling of bonhomie pushed me to say "Yes of course I'll help with the garden and in particular to pull that very stubborn tree/bush thing out". The result is now pain 10 and disappointment 11. Three hours in the bath and the best knocked off painkillers I could find and I have to be realistic and say my back is in a state that I will unfortunately not be attending tomorrow after all. If I was to attend I would present such an upright, moany, slow moving target with even less stealth and surprise than I normally possess that the course of the war would undoubtedly be altered in a non favourable direction.

I am so desperately sorry, as everyone has said this game is a high point of the year, and beyond the game I am also very upset not to be able to see everyone.

I hope it goes well. Have fun.

Charlie

Shite Charlie

The curse of the bad back

Pulled mine out Thursday , I will be limping and slouching round site , but I'll be painkillered up and will manage


Me Chris and Matt have been talking about it all week and are all defiantly 10 on the excitement level.

We are driving down about 430an so we have a two hour window to account for any traffic problems

See you all in the morning

Bad luck Charlie, hope you recover quickly.

All packed and ready to go, just need to make my sandwiches.

See you all tomorrow.
