I've got my train ticket and have booked my beloved for an early lift to the station.
I've booked Friday/Monday off...because I can.
All I need to do is withdraw some cash and I'll be good to go.

See you all at the HF stand :).

Someday i'll get the chance to get to one of these.

Someday when it won't cost me more to get there, stay the night and get back. Than i'd spend on stuff whilst there.

The way I see it...

The cost of the trains and buses and hotel can be put to better use buying more minis.   :silly

A view I've always shared. But... this year I'm hopeful I might make it down.
