yep, it is now very close… now very much regretting not having done more training lol, though my new job is giving me some degree of training as I am spending half my time moving heavy things around, and I cycle to and from it which has got to be helping fittness.
the preview photos are on facebook here if anyone is interested in seeing it.
anyway, 2 days. Feels very real now lol
