We're going up to Loughborough this weekend for Stuart and Emma P's weddings. Going to be a good laugh with lots of champagne flowing.

I have the task of capturing some camcorder shots, so maybe I need to keep off the booze for the first few hours...! No pressure, this is not THE wedding video.

Once the sun came out from behind the clouds it was fine. We initially thought there'd only be about 6 to 8 of us which would have been cosy but another 6 turned up, so cheers for the confirmation!

Mark Hopwood even went into the (freezing cold) water. Respect. I chickened out seeing as nobody else goes in, so I was outdone on this occassion.

Anyway, the next one will be on Friday August 26th. The fireworks will be shooting of the Pier/s. Unfortunately it is Rich P's stag weekend over in Berlin's many strip bars so there will be a contingent missing. So, pencil it in.

Unfortunately the weather is not going to be as hot as Friday's but heck at 6pm it doesn't really matter. Get down to Tesco/Asda/Sainsbury, fight off the other shoppers and pick up the 2 for 1 bargain grill packs.

The bar-b spot has been booked so it's 6pm down at the bottom of Toft Zig Zag.
