Must have seen flanker if I saw KinkyS, my blog tells me also with BeeJay? I've met NaomiP, Gymfreak, Pestomum, Puddington etc. since but don't think I saw them on the day. We gave santababy a lift back up to Edinburgh. Party bus!

When will we all meet again? Soon, I hope. :-) G

I've never met Puddington, alas. Not quite sure how this happened.

Flanker was running with a woman who had a Kinkyesque plait, but wasn't her.

Really? Is that allowed (that's to be Grep and Mac!)? Was def Kinky I said hi to. And she had the full Lara Croft plait going on, so they may have looked similar?!

Grep, that seems a bit surprise. She went to many of the big running events and the socials, of course. Here are she and Hendo (Edinburgh 2010, I think?)

No, it's 09.

Beachy 2008 you could make a shorter list by naming the Fetchies that weren't there. Puds was on that list though I fear.

Got something to say?
