I just want to be pain free enough to eat Jenny Green`s asparagus quiche, Tiggers bread and my Straws.

Ooh Piglet - good job we're bringing some soft goodies as well as some others.

We didn't eat until 8.15pm 'cos we were getting ready too. Lyndon insists that his lemon tart has to be cooked fresh tomorrow morning, so God knows what time we'll be up.

You can exchange teeth experiences with him if you like, but I warn you now - despite him being the man with his first filling at 50 and Mr Non-Anaesthetic, last year's abcess, 3 lots of root canal work and eventual extraction is the only time in excess of 30 years that I have seen him in real discomfort!!

Our dentist has warned us that most of these situations are a result of previous fillings and keeping teeth that would otherwise have long since past their sell by date. Doesn't bode well for me then, as all of mine are filled.

On a positive note - tomorrow will be lovely and we'll be all the kinder to you in your circumstances.

On the last leg now, just the coleslaw to go and the car loading. I have added an extra, chicken tikka wraps with lettuce and mayo(if there are any left to go).

We won't starve then. I've done a silly goodie bag for everyone as I only have about 30 things to give away (as per up to date requests). OH has agreed to part with some of his bestest apple juice - I haven't had even a taste of last year's! - as well as some draft cider from a favourite producer, so that should help the toothache if Mrs P drives home.

OK OK, NO NEED TO SHOUT. I've been up since 5am, not as early as you I know but I could have stayed in bed until 6am and still had time. Rosie however had other ideas and decided I needed a really early start so made sure I was well awake before going back to bed herself in the warm spot where I had been!

See you soon peeps, and Allan, thanks for the warning, I'm packing my wellies.

Leftright Leftright, quickmarch, have £13.50 ready in your right hand, get your ticket, move forward and they will take it away and tear it up.. Silly isn't it. Showguide £3 before or after the paydesks but you won't have time to read it, just look at the map at the back, it's almost identical to last year except for extras.
Don't forget at lunchtime if you want to go back again get a return pass as you go out, I think it's a wristband.

I'm glad we've all bought tickets if it's that bad! I hope the queue is shorter for ticket holders.

Must remember the wristband or whatever though, thanks. :D

We got there about 15 minutes before the start and had to wait. If you have tickets there should be little delay. I just wasn't going to pre-book for the miserable discount with the distinct possibility that I wouldn't be able to attend and lose that sort of money(£2 off as a member and buy the stamp, not me)
Enjoy it
