Just a view to inspire:
￼I just love this city!!
Myself, brightlybob and seatexan will be meeting unofficially in a small 'get together' in the Renaissance Heathrow hotel on May 26th, care to join us?
Very exciting, fistuk. Another mini-TIPPLE2 in the making. What a fine group you will be and I wish I could join you. Houston was so much fun and every time I break out my new luggage (which is blessedly often!), I am reminded of the fun afternoon you, seatexan and I had shopping for luggage and shoes and athletic wear. Your purchase advice was solid.
Alas, I will have to be merely satisfied with waving at you in London from just across the Irish Sea, where I will be somewhere south of Dublin on the Emerald Isle. So close and yet so far away! Maybe I will check in with you all on Skype!
I, too will have to pass. I'm sure your meetup will be fun.
On a related note, I will be stopping in to see brightlybob in Manchester at the tag end of my Wales trip in September. With luck, we'll be able to get most of the original TIPPLE attendees to join us again for TIPPLE 2 which will probably be on the calendar for Spring 2018. Stay tuned.
That's a great view fistuk. It would have been great to catch up with you, brightlybob and SeaTexan, but that date is not possible. Ironically, I've already stayed 12 nights at Heathrow Ren this year, but mostly a Sunday or Monday, as I often use it as a base when I'm required to go down to my employer's office at Wentworth for meetings.
One way or another events combine to mean we never get to meet up trevfour, mind you I do stay at the LHR Ren several times a year, so I'll PM you around my next stay!
Good stuff fistuk. That seatexan she's a superstar (she's our carat).
See if you can get the UK SPG team of normanp and brianandlin to drive on over. Let's get their expertise before Marriott inevitably hurts their feelings .
Also, on a side note: brightlybob; andrewt (weekend warrior who just hopped trevfour's back on the Big Board) has been on me for weeks about getting you to change your age on your profile to the proper decade, hup, hup .
Yeah, yeah, erc, I can really see andrewt and all the mods being vexed by my failure to update my age range - as I catch up with you - but never succeed
We'll let it slide, for now...
Please note that according to our weather forecast, summer in the UK was last week and is due to end tomorrow. Bring your wellies!
Must waterproof my suede boots now...
Great title, fistuk, amazing what a few rays of sunlight do to London.
And yes, come one, come all to the
at the LHR-Ren on 26th May!
See all y'all there!
I love the view! It's quite beautiful. I am getting more and more excited!
So what are the temps in May? To me, 60s = cold! And I will look silly bundled up while everyone is in summer attire!
You shouldn't worry about that:
The funny thing with British people is that they don't believe in their own weather! They are so paranoid that even in hot days you'll see most of them walking around with their coats on (!!), afraid it will suddenly get cloudy, cold and raining. It's so funny to watch them!!!
Ha fantastic! My attire will blend right in. I'm going to trust the London weatherman!
You are braver than me! Like brightlybob, I am from Manchester we all have webbed feet up here!
It's not that we don't believe in our own weather it is just that we know that whatever it is doing now we know that soon it will be raining. There are people here that you will see walking around on shorts even when there is 2 feet of snow. These people usually wear red jackets and work for the post office. It seems to be some kind of challenge to prove how hard they are! Last year when I was in Malta in March, I asked what the weather forecast was for the day. I was told " this is a small island if you need to know what the weather is like, go outside and look" . The UK is much the same!
LOL the postman! That is funny!
It's also true. Brightlybob will no doubt back me up.
MY postwoman wears shorts and walking boots all year round! Sun, rain, hail and snow! Hardy lass!!
This is a tempting trip.......hmmmmmm....Let me see how April unfolds.
Well it would be great to see you painedplatinum but in honour of fistuk I'm now rechristening this TIPPLE as:
So you need to find an LNF for the LHR Ren but don't worry if you find yourself struggling with the LNF, I'm sure seatexan can help, she's just popped her LNF cherry for this meetup
Thanks to fistuk we all got an LNR Edit: OPS!!!! LNFR..... hahaha
Um, that's an LNF, seatexan - See, painedplatinum, you can have confidence in fistuks latest students abilities
Actually brightlybob, to be accurate that's a LNF RATE, as LNF only stands for 'Look No Further'.
YYeah, right, we all know who teechurs pet is now
Retrieving data ...
