    Oh no, Growly, you didn't just use the 'A' word did you? Guiders NEVER drink that stuff, or encourage it's consumption, I don't know what you are implying went on ;)

    I do so hope that the medicine worked Cazbly....maybe more than just the one dose would have been required on such a cold outing. I am very aware of your absolute abstinance rule...a shining beacon of all that is the 'spirit' of guiding. Cheers ;)

    We were on the wheel later on in the day, so in the dark. It had stopped for rather a long time, then there was a big bang, and the lights went out! We were stuck up there for quite a while in the end! We did actually get to go right round once, but there must have been something more serious as they were sending people away, refunding those who'd already passed the booth, and also those of us on there at the time got our money back too.

    And I thought we had warned you all not to play with live electrics!

    Sounds a bit scarey... but just think, you missed out on the fireman rescue!
