Thank you Mrs A.

The big day is Saturday May 12th at Mold Registry Office.

We are having a holiday each side of the wedding from Wed May 9th to 16th in North Wales.

I may give you a PM to discuss Fri quiz night (May 11th).

We have been promised wi-fi, but I don't know how good it will be.

Whatever happens there'll be a quiz, I may ask somebody to post it up.
