So did you get it?

If you want one let me know, as I can go and pick you one up, you can phone up do the money stuff and I'll collect if needed.

If you DID go I can only imagine the traffic...:eek:

the deed is done, traffic in wasn't too bad, got there for about 12.30 ish, found a space near edge of car park. Inside was it was crazy, loads of peps walkign around aimlessly, Apple store was soooo busy, everyone wanting help on ipods, buying covers for them, mad. Got the new imac and legged it as fast as we could. Car parks coming out were overflowing, traffic backed up all over, we timed it right. phew.

Gizmo

Man flu, umm, curtailing my drinking ability, fridge full of beer, don't want any more, think it would be better to replace the beer with Andrex, nose will fall off soon !

Glad you got your stuff Mike, in future if you want Traffic Centre (as we call the Trafford Centre) road report give me a ring. I can usually find out from one of the lads as our offices are only a mile away.
