A group of girls I used to share a house with years ago have arranged to go on a reunion weekend to the West of Ireland in June. The plan was to book into a nice hotel, and spend the time relaxing, having nice meals and a few drinks and catching up and reminiscing. However, one of the group has now asked if its okay to bring her six year old daughter as her husband wants to play in a golf tournament that weekend. A child hanging around is going to completely change the tone of the holiday imho. I haven't spoken to all of the group yet but the two I have been in touch with are not too keen either.

AI (or we)BU to think of saying that we'd prefer if it was kept to adults only as it's the first time we've all been together in about ten years?

What most of the others have said . YANBU

Either friend sadly declines or husband will have to cancel his golf tournament .

Just read this thread in one go and spit out my coffee laughing at friend sending a picture - how very teenagerish.

Glad you had a great time without the 'fun blocker'.

Fantastic. smile Glad you had a great time and lots of wine and juicy gossip good memories were shared.

What do you mean unfortunately you had to drink her share of the champers and wine? grin
Sounds very fortunate to me.

Arabesque so happy this thread popped up again - thanks for updating!

So so pleased for you (and your pregnant friend, how nice) and pmsl at the thought of EF in Torremolinos.

Oh BTW, did she go with her DH?
I thought he was on a golfing weekend.

Thanks for the update. So pleased your weekend was not soured by EF.

The text photo is truly hilarious!

Love it - both that you had a great time and that your 'friend' felt the need to send that photo. Hilarious really!

Sounds like a great weekend smile

LittleprincessinGOLDrocks Mon 10-Jun-13 11:48:11

Sorry - that will teach me to post without reading the whole thread! lol

YANBU - It is a girly weekend away, probably alcohol flowing, dancing the night away kind of reunion. No place for a 6 year old. Even if it were a tame get together having tea and scones the poor girl would be bored rigid!

Just back from a great weekend! One long wanted but totally unexpected pregnancy announcement (which meant unfortunately that we had to drink her share of the champers and wine), loads of shocking revelations about who fancied who at college and

EF did not turn up but did text us all a photograph of herself and DD on a beach on Saturday with 'Greetings from Barbados. Hope you're having a great time in rainy dull Ireland'. hmm. None of us actually believe she's in Barbados but she's obviously out of the country somewhere as the weather was scorching in Ireland, which she obviously wasn't aware of. We suspect she's probably in Torremolinos or somewhere. To be honest, we'd all (apart from pregnant friend) had a couple of glasses of midday champagne when we got it and we just had a good laugh. PG Friend is so happy and over the moon nothing could upset her at the moment smile.
