Thanks for a few of the kind comments. Sadly no wedding trip to report back from. I was swithering for ages but swithering is usually a sign that the cost/benefit ratio will be too high and I'm just too unwell. Francis phoned to say the band had fun doing covers. I could hear James Brown in the background. Get up, get on up...like a sex machine. Aye, right.
PS I should explain to international readers that, 'Aye right' said in a very flat tone is Scottish sarcasm that translates as, 'You've got to be kidding.'
