    A little bump for the real GTG.

    AndyD I’ll sort out logistics with you in the week….juggling covid in the household (again)

    Sorry I can’t do tomorrow night….postpone for a week? Or I’m happy to set it up for you to all partake in?

    Postpone, with the prospect of a report from the real GtG for those unfortunately unavailable.

    Will do.

    Had a mini-GTG with Zelig tonight. It involved lots of beer, some noisy neighbours, and a kebab. No photos sadly!

    Superb night out in Manchester last night.

    Old haunts, new breweries, a 3–0 win at the Etihad & a kebab !

    What’s not to like ?

    Another vGTG tomorrow night?

    The only ‘snag’ is that it’s United v Chelsea ko 19:45. United are playing so brilliantly recently it’s a must watch game for me and the Kirk280 girls (forget last night’s boring City game). So I will be joining the vGTG around the football….see you at half time and later on when you are all tired!

    Will Walkerwek1958 be joining us? Or is he sulking because we keep calling him Janet?!

    I’ll be watching Man U tomorrow too.

    But either week is fine for me. As I’m sure I’ll be able to tear myself away from the game when Man U are 4-0 up…

    I will be joining tomorrow, just not for all of it. The chances of me watching the United match to the end are slim. Sad times in the Red part of Manchester.

    But as always I’m happy to go with the consensus.

    Sorry I’ve got a clash now, my football club have invited me to a meeting starting at 19:30. Next week it is, unless people want me to host and start off a vGTG tonight? (I could join later)

    Sorry guys I was dealing with a broken sink this morning (my daughter pulled it off the wall!) and I’ll be in Nottingham with work until later than expected today so won’t be able to host a zoom tonight.

    Next week I promise!

    (Alternatively someone else could host it tonight if you are all super keen….but it’s not the same without Alec!)

  16. #1016
    Not an issue as couldn’t make anyway due to boozing out in London!

    Tonight’s vGTG details sent. I’ll be dipping in and out as my brother-in-law and niece are here from the States. I’m sure we can turn him into a WIS!

  20. #1020
    I will be a bit late. Haven’t had dinner yet. Still on the champagne and canapés.

    It wasn’t 5* … & the bigger problem was the 5h time difference….

    ^^^ only 5 hours?

    Our man in Japan managed an 8 hour difference.😀

    Sorry chaps I won’t be able to host a vGTG tonight as I’m coaching a football match later on (I think Alec is away anyway). We have some randomly timed friendlies coming up so apologies in advance for late notice cancellations.....I won’t be offended if you have one without me!

    Ok - next week then. Summer holidays permitting. If anyone wants a real GTG in Portugal Algarve - drop me a pm - the pool is providing welcome coolness from the 31C today.

    Next week works better for me too - as I’m still bouncing between time zones in North America.

    …the jet lag will be strong with this one

    It's not looking good.

    I think Our Glorious Leader has been over-multi-tasking.

    Apologies Gents. Multitasking to the max. Got my Dad here now, eldest daughter has exams tomorrow, I’ve got a couple of grants to finish polishing, and apparently I need to vacuum the house as the sister in-law arrives tomorrow! I could do with a beer instead.

    We need to have a chat about priorities, what could possibly be more important than drinking beer and talking nonsense...

    I sincerely hope our man Kirk is not polishing this Grant ...

    Although, Grant does look satisfied with himself.

    ...hopefully unrelated

    I believe Kirk has polished off huge quantities of Grants in his time.

    I’ll sort the zoom out for tonight’s vGTG at some point today. I’ll start it but may be late joining properly; the wife has just come down with covid so I need to do some running around on her behalf tonight.

    Should be able to join by about 9:20. Just navigating a few fields on way back to the cottage. Hope the sheep don’t realise that we had rump of lamb for dinner in the pub.

    Virtual GTG tonight, or is everyone going to be in the pub celebrating?

    Sorry chaps I can’t host tonight. I will be celebrating by continuing to install a rabbit proof fence around my new football field! (That’s kept me busy for the last week…).

    Next Thursday I might be in London but I’ll let you know nearer the time….
