    Interesting weekend. First one, fundraiser for a lady fast becoming a regular customer. In the function room of a WMC, rather than the lounge bar where I've done the previous two. The main difference...

    Sticky: Well it was some improvement.

    I'm firmly convinced that we set ourselves too high standards. For me, last night's wedding was acceptable. Once I'd been granted access. Hotels, communication, and forward planning don't seem to go...
