The one where Dan signed up, Charlotte didn't, we missed Sharon, but welcomed Ivo. Was a really decent eve in E15, a chat about "your favourite gadgets?" pumped out some good material; cherry de-stoner, time machines, bespoke made Charlotte-friendly dating app, good coffee machine, shower-docked indestructible alarm clock and something to do with an automated refill mechanism for fridge water. We. Had. It. All.

Great to nip back down the canal, to a place we used to frequent monthly, it's now been circa four years since I've been there, that's mad. Anyway, Paul, the ex head teacher left some trusty disciples to instruct us. The old furniture moving session, we've done it a few times before, never gets easier though, I hope all your shins are radiant and unmarked today. Classical music fluttered through the halls as we worked over-time to finish the job, on a task where you're relieved to get good numbers. Well done for putting in a shift all.

Before I sign off - a massive doff of the cap for the weekend heroics; a hatrick of community missions and a Parkrun! All the best to the Bournemouth bunch, look forward to discussing the race/party report next week. Go hard! We're at Abbey Gardens next, sign up here and get stuck in.
