    Nuffeh, I didn't disappear Friday night for my dinner - I disappeared so that I could get a good night's sleep in my own bed because I knew exactly what I was in for the next two days:razz:

    What a fantastic weekend! What started out as a little informal get together because Buffs was travelling down managed to turn into a riot of a mini-meet (riot not being too far short of literal.) Thank you to everyone that came along for making it the success it was. It's telling of how well we all got along that it felt like I'd met all of you before, even those that have managed to avoid me in real life previously. It was also great to get to speak properly with those that I'd sadly only swapped a few brief words with at Henley.

    Bowling was embarrassing but fun, just as at Henley - the ball always seems to go looking for my mind, and presumes it's in the gutter for some reason. I feel awful that we managed to somehow lose el_pedro along the way, I thought I was only acting as navigator for Cherry. Hopefully we'll see you again at the next meet though.

    iSketch was hilarious, more so knowing we were annoying the miserable swine in the next room:razz: .. and the room below:eek: See what happens when you get a room full of iSketchers but no admin are around to keep control of us! I had to park my bottom on the floor for much of the time and if anybody else had kicked me I'd have been forced to leave the room and go sit in the lobby:razz:

    The morning after the night before brought the sad but inevitable departures for those with long distances to travel and stuff to do, but Buffs, Kissy, Vodka_Babe, WildCherry and me stopped a while for a drink out in the glorious sun. And then it was back to life, back to reality.

    For fear of missing anyone out, I won't list you all individually - but it was wonderful to meet every one of you and I hope it won't be too long before we can all get together again. I had another sketch pad with me that we didn't even touch ...

    Well... it sucks to be home! :sad: I had a brilliant weekend with you guys! I think all the details have been gone over... I can't remember doing anything embarrassing, but I'm sure people will remind me. Oh yeah.. I talk like a geordie fishwife! :razz: Everyone there was a diamond! It has to be said... brilliant company all weekend and just... well it was just wonderful to see you guys... people I've met already and those I hadn't yet. :biggrin:

    Okay.. you want pictures....

    Well, it was good to see those of you who were there when I was... Had a very nice time in the sunshine having a drink and talking, as is the proper thing to do at these meets.

    Needless to say that I am quite fed up of Essex at the moment, having seen most of it in my attempt to find you all at the bowling alley. Special thanks to everyone who did try and help me get there. I did ask at petrol stations and have come to the conclusion that most employees of those places are infact thick as frozen treacle.

    Lots of good photos from Buffs there. Sorry I couldn't be in more of them, but I'm sure you all know the score by now.

    I think I'd like to pee on a Range Rover. Preferably from a great height. And with extreme disregard for the driver... :twisted:

    Buffs, fantastic photographs to a great song! It seems like ages ago that we were doing all that! That is one You Tube bloggy bit that will remain on my favourite list for a long time! So glad you got the Piggie poster in! It's currently up in my bedroom although Mario's not quite sure why!!:eek:

    Unfortunately, Ireland will have to do without me I'm afraid! I just won't be able to make it. However, I may have to consider Henley if the date is right! Perhaps then I'll get to do my game!! It just wouldn't have worked in Cherry's Party Room!

    Oh well, off to bed now! Work tomorrow!

    Piggie, what do you mean by Cherry's room wouldn't have worked for your game, I thought naked corridor running just needed a corridor:razz:

    Anybody who didn't make it to Waltham Abbey, or who did but partook in a little too much drink and now isn't sure what happened, can see a gallery of photos what I took here

    I've rung the hotel this morning and they assure me reconstruction work for the damage caused Saturday night will be completed by the time we arrange another meet, and we're not all banned for life. Who says miracles don't happen:eek:

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm really feeling the after effects of bowling! My left leg and my right arm are sore!! If I ever go on another meet, can someone arrange less strenuous activities?! Lifting a glass containing vodka I can do, but bowling... nope!

    Thank You so much for taking me along! I don't remember much, but then again if I was there, the rum would have done the same! So I will assume I had a wonderful time!

    Any more people and I fear there would have been a real issue with space in Cherry's room lol

    Thinking about making this an annual thing now though... about the same time each year, and there are still LOADS of sketchers I'd love to meet, they know who they are... you can't hide forever... I WILL stalk you down. :twisted: Mwahahahaha

    And lil bunny... there's always next time. :smile:

    A little ditty to sum up the waltham abbey meet.


    Waltham abbey was the spot, where isketchers met to thicken the plot.
    We started out in the bakers arms, where all the bar staff loved our charms.
    We had a few then went outside, to look for piggie and to hide.
    The plan was simple on the meet, to jump out from hideing and so could greet, the oinker and her trotter feet.
    We then went strolling off to bowling and one of us got lost, poor el_pedro silly moo, cut up by a range rover so dident go.
    At the alley bowling away, piggie,s scores were big way hey,broken nails and falling balls, watch my feet you silly fools.
    Burgers and chips at the bowling alley. what a minging meal, burnt fries and crappy burger, why did i pay my bill.
    Back to the pub and more to drink all chatting haveing fun, sitting chilling gabbing away, what a lovely happy day.
    Now to my room cherrys den, for isketch nibbles and more to drink again.
    Pizza delivered to my room, laughing shouting complaining to.
    Reception rang to say were to loud, were only talking says the crowd.
    Another call from reception again same complaint oh great.
    And so to end this exciting night, cherry spewing with delight, on vodkas bed of all the places, just as well i missed her face.
