Can I order food for takeout? I reckon I could zip ahead, get a foil bag of munch and then rejoin the barbarians before anyone noticed. :lol:

Depends on how far you have to go, last years food wouldn’t have sustained you across the pub threshold let alone to the border.

As it’s was a slow day at work (waiting for the Christmas shows and resultant rush) my mind started to wander...
If the Welsh lads/lasses are heading east and the chilterns expeditionary force heading west is it possible that we might come within waving distance at apogee of our loops? If so perhaps we should elect a participant to act as an emissary to cross the border and convey Christmas greetings :-bd

Cherokee/Welsh mixture - there's a quote there somewhere but I'm damned if I can find it.

It’s even murkier than that, my dads side of the family are from Newcastle and Yorkshire, the two halves came together over a shared love of mines in the Kent coal fields.

"came together over a shared love of mines in the Kent coal fields" - that must have resulted in some interesting chat-up lines as your folks were billing and cooing across the candlelit restaurant table :lol:. Still, I'm no better, I always think that me carting Mrs Perrin around lots of old mining areas looking at the "scenery" is a guarantee of her undying love and faithfulness :lol:.
