Look Baz, you should have been more clear. When you said bring my machine over, Nekkid - you should have specified the portafilts were the nekkid bit. Anyway, with luck the ASBO will have expired by Sunday...

Yes sorry but I won’t be attending as I may need to be called up to help out in Germany. What with Owen gone I may need to dust of the boots. But if Sven doesn’t call by 8am Sunday morning, I'll set off.

I hope you realise what pain I'm going through for you here Barry, I cant remember the last time I watched an England game sober, and they way its gone so far this tournament the alcohol works as a anaesthetic. But I have to drive home so a coffee only zone :)

Hey hey!!! I'm not even CLOSE to half as bad as Steve... I only brought 2 pairs of shoes for being away for nearly 2 weeks!!! He brought 3 for 2 days!!!

He's gonna be delayed trying to get through security in Amsterdam too... it's must be a pain and a half these days to travel by air when you're dressed quite so shiney. Oh well, I guess that's why Joris is getting to the airport an hour before me :P

Bloody hell, Steve and Theo up front is the news leaking out of Svenland ........ The tactics involve Steve carrying COE beans to tempt the opponents and smarties to reward Theo for being a good boy :P

Will you have to polish Joris over the weekend to ensure he doesn't rust in the salty sea air?

sorry guys but after weeks of eager anticipation i'm going to have to miss out on tomorrow's party :cry:

instead i have to travel down to itv west in bristol

i even considered the possibility of driving up to scarborough from there but the 16 hour, 565 mile round trip, kind of rules it out

i really am upset about it but when the work's there i have to do it :evil:


i know it won't be the same without me but i'm sure you'll all put a brave face on this sad situation and i hope you resist the understandable temptation to cancel the event altogether

all that remains is for me to take this opportunity to offer barry a warm hand on his opening :lol:


have lots of fun

HI all

Sorry for last minute pull out but i gotta do it....
Only just got back home from holidays and i'm knackered from the driving and the thought of doing another 300 miles tomorrow on my 1 day before i gotta go to work away from home for 12 days doesn't help.

Was really wanting to come but i just can't

Sorry
Jamie

:D :D :D

Got to Meet Joris and Marcy ...wahooooo !
in true TMC spirit they got straight into action, rolled up their sleeves or armour in joris`s case. and helped with the final home run of shop preparations.
didnt even stop to eat... poor beany piped up at 9-00pm and said 1/2 muffin all day was not enough to keep her going, what sort of host am I?.*shakin head*... did however supply copious amonuts of espresso as i am trying to get used to my new machine which is taking abit of getting used to, and steam is all different.
looking forward to tommorow when i can enjoy the coffee and company and leave the business side, well alone for the day after being imersed in it for quite a few of weeks.

Barry
