Not going!!! Sad

Whilst I've not had Flu, I've certainly had a grotty chest infection, with phlegm the colour of the CGR, a hacking cough that kept me awake some nights, & a general aching feeling


Roll on 'Withins' in October


Pity really, as I was looking forward to how the new organisers got it
