    Finally back to a computer.

    Had amazing fun and everyone there was a good laugh. All the teaching was great and to a high standard, so a big thank you to all the chaps on that front.

    Also the fact that Mitch didn't have time to change out of his mankini before we went for a drink afterwards has left what I could only describe as a lasting impression.

    Can't wait for the next meet!

    Simon thanks for letting me know about the day. I had a good time and it was nice to meet a great bunch of people. I would also like to say thanks to the instructors who gave up their time and for what I came away with and to Mitch for sorting out the venue. Hopefully I'll be able to make the next one where ever and whenever it is.

    Thanks Andy, your help during our lesson was appreciated and not just by me.

    Seconded! Both Simon and Andy coped with my stunning ineptitude with patience and aplomb (and thank you Simon for not making me suffer as I so richly deserved when I got carried away in the last session - wasn't expecting that technique to be quite so effective!). In fact, big thank you to everyone - I learned a lot and am now trying desperately not to forget it all!!!

    Yeah I might do a write up.
    Just to give a flavour of what I did as well as an aid to remember things.

    But then again I did get a pet portrait commission as I was stood in the beer garden after the session so I might be too busy.
    Someone else can though. :)

    I still have a hurty forearm.

    Told you I was a delicate flower.:cry:

    I didn't pick up any bruises from MAP Meet (although my upper arms were a bit stiff), but I have an interesting collection I picked up from two classes on Tuesday (mostly jiyu kumite). Ah well - no pain, no gain......... :D

    No bruises here. ANy contact I had with Mitch in your class was very gentle and LFD's wrestling class was carefully pitched to those less familiar with his methods.

    I bet it was you that did it, you and Mike.

    Alright, so I'm a big girl's blouse.

    Anyone else want to have a go? :eek:

    I keep telling my son I'm a delicate flower. At 3 years old he just looks at me with a deadpan expression and says "No you're not!". That's me told.

    DAAAAAMMMMNNNN. Turns out I picked up a speeding fine coming into Nottingham for the MAP meet.
    37 in a 30 zone somewhere.
    I had no idea.
    Shall we have a whip-round? :(

    EEEKKKK!!!! I'd better vet the post before my other half finds something similar waiting for me......... :jawdrop::eek::cry:

    Are you sure it wasn't on the way home? Perhaps when you sped away from the lights leaving Lorelei and me stranded? (Not that I hold a grudge, or anything!)
  19. Smitfire

    Smitfire Cactus Schlong you need a pint glass for that bitter?
    It was at 11:20-ish. On that main road into Nottingham where it goes 60-40-30 in the space of about half a mile.

    Well if you're buying I will!

    Unlucky. Sometimes you've got to be really careful. I used to drive to work along a stretch of the A4 where it suddenly went from 60 to 30 with no prior warning whatsoever. A masterpiece of bad planning.
