He's booked the ferry home so the wanderer will return to face the music ohmy.gif and his pressie arrived in the post today! banana.gif

Booked on Calais to Dover Tuesday 10am 19th July. Says he may blast back and get home late Tuesday night but another alternative is to have a stopover Tuesday and get home Wednesday, which to be honest I would prefer him to do. Not good travelling so far and getting tired!

Looks like you might have a lodger for a night pict! unsure.gif

If he gets the silent folding of the arms and the frown, when it gets to the tappings of the feets the man is in trouble, then he gets to do the 'explaining' (bike broke down, lost phone, ferry sank, made a heroic effort etc)

I would just throw myself on the mercy of the court, having first bribed the judge with flowers and choccies which must of course be 'expensive' proportional to the magnitude of the er offence laugh.gif

Pete-am sure he has loads of pics-Cant wait to see them myself!

Manx900 (paul?) Am sure you will see us later this year-probably over to see Robs family in the IoM again before the year is out..................

Cats & Sidestand-He gets away with it cos I am a forgiving and easy going sort and quite self contained and happy in my own company (but don't push me too far or take me for granted-the explosion could be MASSIVE!)

Leehenty-He wont get the folded arms treatment unless he pushes it too far (see above) and he best have got me a few pressies stashed on the bike-ha ha!

I await his retun tomorow-bet the bugger brings loads of dirty washing! mad.gif
