Postcard from Newcastle upon Tyne

Written 28/05/08

Gawd, as if my family is not bad enough. I am not sure if I have had an hour of being sober. These English know how to drink.

Took a trip to Blackpool yesterday. Met Lord Fleetwood and I thought he might be quite a nice guy. Oh dear.

What have youse all been writing in your blogs?

    Not sure what gave you that idea, Andrew. Hope the hospital staff treated you well after the 'accident' with my mattock. At any rate, now perhaps you'll know never to interupt me with a friendly "G'day" during a difficult excavation. (It was that blackpudding I'd eaten that caused the problem. Talk about blood, sweat and tears.)

    p.s. Now that they've removed it, can I have my mattock back?

  2. I suppose for some, five minutes sober would be too long.

    Hope you're having a grand time.

  3. I should also warn you that Brian has been taking many, many liberties with the mattock while you've been gone.
    Do NOT give it back!

  4. I hope you didn't meet Fleetwood in a dark alleyway, he has a reputation. Your loyal fans demand a detailed description of your Lancashire visit, but leave out details of your hangovers.
