Funky_monkey said:Congrats on achieving (and surpassing) the Qualifying Total! What's the long story behind the 116kg? Come on, Ian, you know better than that!My wife was away for the weekend but her parting shot was that there was food in the fridge! As i was busy working on Friday afternoon i looked into said fridge to discover a packet of what we know as fish sticks, which i duly opened and consumed, some minutes later i noticed that the sell by date was over three weeks previous! As a consequence, i spent most of the night in the smallest room giving until their was nothing left to give. In all honesty I genuinely thought that i might need to drop out of the event. On the positive side, i dropped 2kg overnight. | |||
