Blog2004 ≫ Whopper of a weekend

Well that was a mighty BEAST of a weekend, took a couple of extra days to go round Kent checking out wedding venues, so I have a nice short working week now. We have finalised a venue and it is the previously mentioned Lympne Castle1. It's not cheap, but it's ace, a real castle, great atmosphere and views and only ten minutes outside of Folkestone. Seems reasonable to lay on some sort of transport back into town though for our guests, a coach or something. If we invite anyone that is, we might just lord it up playing King and Queen in our own castle for the day, on our own.

Other things we did over the weekend were; EAT, and also DRINK. Did the quiz at Chambers, but did terribly again, even with a much extended team.

Having a few probs with Gmail, I've used up my gigabyte of storage by redirecting all my popex mail at it, and that gets a tonne of spam. Google say they'll empty the trash and spam after thirty days, but they've not yet. So, sorry if I'm bouncing you, I'm deleting as fast as I can by hand, but it's not easy.

Pops, you were right, my Derelict London pubs link below does seem to have been posted on Sunday, though I wasn't near a computer all weekend... it's just because someone posted a response then, bit misleading, I will fix this up later...
