Tubelation !

Is it right to talk up your own achievments? I'm not convinced that it is actually, so I did ask Annie to do this on behalf of myself and Neil, but she's not within internet-range all day and so I find myself having to talk ourselves up. What am I talking about ? ... This of course:

Yup.. they finally got back to us, with confirmation
our last attempt to break the world record. God bless them at Guinness. When I rang them two weeks ago to ask how it was going (and mention it was a shame that we'd missed out on the 50th anniversarry book that's just come out) then told me that 'They still hadn't looked at my claim yet' (Three+ months after I'd submitted it), but it now had 'high priority'.

High enough eventually, for me to be woken by my girlfriend this morning from my slumber with the words "Somethings just turned up in post that I you're going to want to see", and passed me a sturdy envelope which I quickly ripped open to find inside ...

So there you have it. We are official. 18 hours, 35 minutes and 43 seconds. Now for us to get our grinning mugs in ' Metro' I think ... :-)
