I thought this annual meet-up thing was moving round and Joanna had volunteered to host it this year.

 

Sorry would love to come but not in the UK at that time.

Failing is not a fault, refusing to try is

Looking forward to seeing you again, Martin.

Tracey, Janet and anybody else can always organise a local meet-up. Last year TA did one in MK and we went there as well.

I hope I can come this year! Will talk to Ruth about transport, or to P about visiting his grandchildren in East Anglia that weekend, or see if there is another way to get there!

Ah well Tracey, there'll be you, another Forumite and me...it could work.  I suppose we could do it at mine and have a webcam to the alternate event.....don't think we'd get many as 'day visitors' if we put out invitations though...big_laughbig_laugh

Barbara, if you can manage to get anywhere near us (and Husband definitely agrees for us to go), then you're welcome to come with us.  Same goes for anyone else who might need a lift if it's convenient for them to get to us, or if we pass near them on our way. 

 

(Sorry Elsa and Tracey, Bulgaria isn't exactly on our route whistlebig_laughsorry)

Mentioned it to Mike today...as in..."darling...what plans have you for 21st July?"

reply..."hmm,nothing much, why?"...

"well it's the CSH get together and I'd really like to go..."

"Ah, well...I've got a golf match the next day, I could stay here and look after the dog"

Me thinks...that'll be a first....him looking after the bloody dog.

he thinks it'll be a bunch of middle aged women chattering ten to the dozen...I said, no, there's middle aged men chattering ten to the dozen too. smile

It is definitely nineteen to the dozen, implying that there are more than you can manage.

I'll try that again!

How about mine next year then…I can manage six double and a loft with a balcony and panoramic views that could sleep another two couples, two kitchens and three bathrooms…just need the windows in the 'not so much of a wreck'  

There again the local hotel is fifteen pounds per night for a couple…Vodka, gin and the usual spirits at just under five pounds a litre and wine at about five pounds for a three litre wine box…..better come quick before Europe implodes….winkwinkbig_laughbig_laugh
