    You see folks. Short notice entry dates do happen. Someone must have withdrawn and lucky old you were next on the the list. I hope it all goes well for you.

    Other newbies are now queueing up to know how long you waited, when was your RT etc.........

    You need to make friends with a wren to really achieve the best wake up call of all time.

    I find nothing beats a shake (mid ships with lips of course) followed by a nice cup of tea and marmite soldiers.

    Didn't think that. Genuinely pleased for you. With waiting times so long, everyone wants to get in quickly and are bound to be inquisitive in order to give them a perspective of how long they might actually have to wait.

    Good luck.
