My Thursday work schedule has changed from staying working in one location and knocking off at 4pm with a comfortable 2 hours to get to the train station to having to bounce all over Greater Manchester so it will be touch and go if I make my train now.

Returned to room updated the hub and read some comics/almost got some sleep before Ed text to tell me Mr T was here rushed down to find it was just Andy Turnbull.
First arrivals base camp was established in the bar as numbers slowly grew.
We were joined by Peter Spelios, I was the unknown person to him so was christened Mr X, and later a jet lagged Gregg Berger. After several hours people thought about eating. Then things got WEIRD. I was going to join them, but first ran upstairs to drop off some stuff to find a group asian teenagers going in my room. They opened the door as I approached and the look of shock on their faces was priceless. I tried to explain it was my room, but gave up and went down to the reception.
I explained the situation, some what concerned that I would have to move rooms. Or just explain what the hell was going on in there. Thankfully the screw up was entirely theirs and the on duty manager was apologetic. He offered free breakfast and a drink at the bar.
As I was being helped the tour group came down and their leader was telling the receptionist the room they had been given was a store room not a bedroom. I tried not to laugh.
By now Ed was coming back and it was too late to join the others for dinner, so we slyly took the one free drink and turned it in to 2 free drinks and 2 meals and rejoined those who hadn't gone out for dinner. Which worked out great as listening to Berger and Spelios was brilliant.
Nick's knock off upscaled PotP Dinobots might be awful colours but the subtle mould alterations and use of Diecast for weight make them much better than the Hasbro ones. This Grimlock is getting on for leader height and he feels amazing.
