permalink Hey! You! Come back here!
Fancy a weekend in the Peak District in April(ish)?
I'm beginning to plan a trip up onto Kinder Scout, possibly a two day hike with a bit of bivi'ing on the moor.
Your company would be a delightful addition...
permalink Oooh... now that is a lovely thought.
Other commitments allowing, I would be delighted to join you.
permalink Well I have no specific plans,
so have a butcher's in your diary and e-mail me some dates and we'll set it up.
I'm thinking we walk from/to Edale to/from Crowden, which is either a hard day, or two fairly easy days along the first stretch of the Penine Way. If we're canny we can leave a car in one location and start from the other, or if you come by train, I'll call in a favour to get us picked up and returned.
permalink it took me a couple of goes
to realise you weren't bemoaning your lack of Wendy Craig-inspired trouser activities.
permalink You're dead
in the trouser parts ?
permalink i had to look up who they were
and you're all bonkers

permalink You have a son?
I was unaware of this.

edit: not that I particularly ought to be or anything...
permalink next you'll be telling me

permalink Try it on Safari on iPad...
I still haven't found it without deleting everything ever...
permalink You should try it in ie9 on our corporate network.
I've concluded that it actually can't be done.

So, Mr Meep, if you could just artificially bump up the post count to 400k or so, I'll be fine ;-)
permalink don't say
I'm not good to you :)
permalink My word
Active support!
