Not going to Derby/Donnington *sob*

Life has decided to kick me in the teeth. I was feeling fine this morning when I left for work and was really looking forward to the tournament this weekend. However, about 15 minutes after leaving home my guts started to rebel. As I was closer to home than work, I turned about and headed back. Just as well as I've been ill all day. I had decided to give it a few hours to see if it would clear up, but it hasn't. Therefore no tournament for me. Grrr! That means I'm about £100 out of pocket (tournament fee, hotel) and won't get to meet up with various bloggers - sorry guys. And sorry to my team mates for letting them down.

On the bright side, I might actually get some painting done.

  7. Thanks for the well-wishes folks. I am really gutted about not being able to go - I was looking forward to the tournament, doing some pre-SELWG shopping and meeting up with a few of the bloggers.

  20. Check the hotels cancellation policy. Some hotels do not charge you for the full stay if you cancel. Sometimes it will be a one night charge. But they will not always tell you this leaving it up to you to get in touch to claim back the rest of the cost.
