Is david Hamilton Prime Minister yet?  I think we should be told.

I gave up on this as Diddy clearly has no political ambition.  I paid bobb his dues ...

I'd say meet at the station. What train will you be on, OD?

I am riding down.  More than happy to meet at Rochford Station.  What time?

Very much Brommie country, with short distances, on flat and smooth roads.
Too much of that kind of statement will get your poetic licence revoked!!

How I regret being official baby-sitter tomorrow night and thus having to stay at home instead of coming out to drink play.

Can you not bring your charges with you?

I shall see if I can get a pass...

Do you think the route is doable on a singlespeed? (Honest answers please...)

It'll be OK, Nutty looks nothing like the bloke pictured. 

Anyhow, Santa will be present.  What can go wrong?

Oooh, this is all rather exciting!

My jar of pickled eggs are still to be consumed. I don't know whether I should eat them or keep them as a trophy! According to the label, they should be consumed by the end of this year though  :P
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

We'll be cycling through Essex marshland! Max altitude will be something around 3 metres.  ::-)

"Hello kids, I'm glad you came round, do you want to go and meet Santa?"   Hhhhmmmm......     That might make me a favourite Uncle ;D

"Yes, I'll be drinking grown up drinks which means I can't drive.  Please can you both sit on the rack of a bicycle..."   I think that would put me back in the dog house.

You misunderstand. Do they look old enough to be able to buy me a drink?
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

We need an overcoat, a false beard, and a top circus acrobat to teach the kids to stand on each others shoulders. They'll both need to be trained otherwise the one on the bottom will get tired and cranky and annoy Uncle Nutty.  ;)

Initially I was contemplating Nutty towing the kids around in a Burley trailer.  Obviously they are a bit too old to both fit in one trailer. So, a split second of lateral thinking brings me to another solution:-

The kids ride Nutty's tandem and tow the drunken Uncle Nutty in the trailer!  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  ;D

Hhhmmm, if they're going to see Santa, maybe I could chain their bikes in front of each other and then tow me in my sleigh trailer.

So we need to bring:
Disguises for children,
Clingfilm,
Red nail varnish,
Hats,
Pickled eggs, I think those are covered,
And something to stop anal leakage.
That about sums it up I think.
Regulator, are you going to help OD with feeling sweaty and queer?   ::-)
