Idea! :!:
No need to bother with all that Orph stuff; just leave Mike in there, lob in a couple of catering size tins of beans and a box of Swan Vestas and you're away. Sorted.

Re: What did you do at the weekend?

I'll have another go tomorrow when my brain cools down. :roll: Impressed that everyone around that table is looking in such good order that far into a skinful - all except for Girl who clearly ne...
