Dear all,

For those of you who have long memories I'd just like to announce that I'm back in town - at least for a few months.

A year and a half in Greece was fantastic, not least for the appearance of a baby girl in the andyb family, currently 6 months old and still not getting that nights are sleepy times.

I'll be back in Upper Norwood from early Feb and look forward to the next meet up - I hope they still happen.

PS I notice that I'm still a moderator on this site. i will now amuse myself by randomly deleting any post by people I don't know. :P :ph34r:

That'll keep everyone on their toes, although I think my recent site management may have the edge on your deleting capabilities... just when you thought it was safe!

Welcome back Andy :)

p.s. a date and venue for the next social event is coming soon

Welcome back, Andy! I drove through the Kalamata area twice last year, wondering vaguely how you were - gainfully occupied it seems! :)

Welcome back andyb - great to have you back from your diplomatic mission. And congratulations on your new baby girl.

It's quite funny - only this morning was I vaguely thinking on the way into work about the characters on Virtual Norwood and the thought crossed my mind, "I wonder how andyb is getting on in Greece?" Perhaps I should start giving VN racing tips? :rolleyes:

Nice to hear from you andyb and belated congrats on the new arrival. She (name ?) probably arrived the same time as my daughter Grace so we'll have to compare eye-bags :yawn:

Welcome back Andy.

I hope you bring the weather with you (and some falafel would be nice too...)
