I know - I'm just pulling your leg - and since I'm attending a 'murder mystery' thing this evening, the "13 for dinner" schtick seemed apt! :lol:

Hi Mark - I posted it 2nd Class on Saturday, but it missed the last collection, so give it another day or two and if it doesn't arrive I'll sort out another cheque at the weekend.
