Are we doing anything on this? grin

One more assignment to go. Motivating myself by getting this back on my threads!

Hello Banjo!

I shall return shortly and we can get this organisational wheel turning!

Thank you! I think i found it just before I moved up here but then I forgot all about it again. I shall go and introduce myself. grin

this is our usual thread, not sure if you've seen it, we regularly do meets with kids (for coffee and cake) or a meal and drinks grin

Hello! I'm in Durham, and also have to work around footy fixtures, and picking dd up from school in Manchester.
I'd prefer a something in Durham as that'd be cheaper for me. I don't think I can justify £100, but if it's something more affordable like a meal and drinks I'm up for it.

If you want to push it into November I can provide a birthday for us to celebrate :D

Oooo we went to Seaham hall last November and got a deal which was £100 per person for the garden suites, access to the spa for Sat/Sun and a Saturday evening meal.

I don't know if they'd do it again but worth an ask if we fancy something like that?

They also do cocktails in the hot tub........!

Right, I am rubbish at claiming my expenses from work so need a damn good piss up celebration to give me the motivation to claim my money.

So options are:

something in Durham and stay in the premier inn.

Spa (not necessarily for the spa itself but just a but of random decadence in doing something different to the usual)

Something else

Suggestions anyone?

At least you remembered before you agreed to anything! I arranged a meeting for London on T's 3rd birthday and didn't realise for aaaages.blush Poor neglected third babies...

Same as ArrowofApollo, can't do Sep 27th. Had forgotten it is youngest's third birthday. Awkward!

Ooh only just seen this!

I have a wedding the 7th sept where me and dh are going to be staying overnight with no children

Other than that I am in the same boat as golden with bloody Sunderland bloody football.

ArrowofApollo Tue 16-Jul-13 12:29:06

Sounds good, I am definitely not free around the 8th September (DH's birthday) or the 27th September (10th wedding anniversary).
I might even see if I could stay in Durham overnight so I can have a wee drinkie for a change!

Sounds good to me, limpet may have to come too of course.

Anniversary of major, emotional surgery sounds good to me. You will need the support of your friends through that difficult time screw football

and rugby

and rowing

goldenretriever Sun 14-Jul-13 19:43:43

Ah go on then. Although will have to think of something for me to celebrate (anniversary of having my tonsils removed, anyone?)

Also, will have to work around the football fixtures. Sigh. Sunderland. Bigger sigh.

Indith Sun 14-Jul-13 19:25:42

Frozen never had a hen do. Neither did Spiggy. I'm turning 30 21. Any other excuses welcome grin.

Sometime in September/October

What shall we do?
Where shall we go?

It has to include cocktails. And gin. And cake. Possibly curry. Preferably a night away from children and hairy snoring things.

Usual rules about small babies being welcome of course, they don't count as children.

Who wants to come?
