Hi all,

Fab that you're all still at it! :)  I've had a wretched cold this  
past week or so, which definitely ruled out any river swimming (or  
kayaking, most frustratingly, as I've just joined the Uni Canoe Club!)
I'm half tempted to join you on the 17th, I have some additional  
layers now that I could wear under my wetsuit... don't know though, I  
may barely have got rid of this cough by then... I *am* missing the  
swimming though!

Glad to see the map is still coming in handy.

X Helen
