Thursday.....

Now where have I heard that one before?

Question


Floor Floor Floor Mike I think fate says this Thursday . why you say ....
well I was supposed to go on Monday the 8th and booked and paid for the flights to Manchester ,when it became obvious that Monday wasn't going to happen and that the mapper was working on the car tues and wed I paid £80 to change the tickets to the Thursday 11th or so I thought . anyway Thursday came and went and I expected to have lost the money for the flights plus the extra £80 paid to move them. anyway this morning hearing the cars almost ready and back with Hartech I decided to call Flybe to see if my ticket was lost or if I could pay again to change the flight . Initially he said if its a no show then the cost is forfeited which was fair as they couldn't resell the seat. anyway when he checked I had mistakenly not changed the flights to Thursday the 11th but infact had accidentally booked them for Thursday 18th this coming Thursday , So fate clearly played a part and knew all along it was going to be Thursday the 18th . I haven't stopped to think what would have happened last Thursday had I tried to fly and get the car . nooo but there we go life strange sometimes Grin Grin

Excellent news Phil thumbsup sounds like you and Kevin won't now need to squeeze into Jimbo's bonkers Cayman all the way to Dinslaken, although that would have been worth a Photo Floor

Hope that you get it back and that it is all sorted out. Don't wreck it in Germany, as looking forward to seeing it in Beaulieu

T shirt weather tomorrow Phil. And that's coming from the biggest southerner on here, excluding Systech and Kiwi actually.
If they can understand me, albeit wincing as they try, you'll be sweet. If you get stuck in getting to from MCR to Hartech, give me a shout.
I'm playing Lotto tomorrow on the back of your collection Grin

Nice one Phil I bet you can't wait, all of us keep wondering when the day would be so it must have been playing on your mind constantly. At least with a nice set of thin soled Addidas Gazelle's on your pedal feel should be quite good as you must have forgotten how she feels after all this time. Thumb

Seems I’m chauffeur at the Southern end of this trip... Up at 7:30am for an 8:30am departure, on my day off! The cheek of it! It’s almost as if I owe him for a six hour round trip to pick up the Angry Gayman...

Dont know
