Do you want me to try (again) for a substitute?

Can it be me?
Unexpectedly, at this late stage I would now be able to attend, and would love to be there. I would be happy to take over adoption of the Mackenzie if that would be simplest or most helpful?

Phil - I'd be happy for you to to be a late substitute for Goncalo. Could you get in touch with Tom and adopt the Offley please? I'll drop him an email too.

Did you mean the Offley (listed as JK+1's adoption) or the Mackenzie (listed as GM's adoption, per first post)? Happy to adopt whichever, and will email Tom.

BTW, I realise the food order will have gone in, so I can order when we're there, or if you have the opportunity to update them before that then I would please like:
- Welsh rarebit (for starter)
- Chargrilled sirloin steak (rare) and chips; + a Béarnaise sauce

I did mean the Offley, purely for the reason that the Mackenzie is already at the B&F so by default is the adoptee of JK's +1. Tom was going to bring the Offley for adoption by Goncalo, now hopefully for adoption by you.

I thought I needed to mention in case of any confusion due to the difference with first post. Sounds like it's all under control - of course - thank you.
