Right, so some voting (for dates), and some venue checking has been done, and Me n NappiesGalore have made executive organising planning decisions (based on us having little time and few options wink)

Saturday 22nd November

Dust Bar (website here)

Nearest Tube Station - Farringdon

It will be canapes, so if you want more food, eat beforehand.

The canapes are being chosen for us - they will be clearly labelled as meat, fish, veg and will allergy advice.

The music we can bring a dj, ipod with playlist set up or have music piped up (music is a very varied mix so should suit everyone). We can use any/all of those options.

Music is quieter at bar end, plus we will have volume control.

They have some fabulous sounding shots wink

Price will be £20 per head max. I will phone tomorrow to find out when they need final numbers for food etc, and when we have a more accurate numbers list, I can work out the right cost - it WILL NOT be more than £20. If we end up paying more than is needed, then obviously I will buy a new dress divide it up and refund people OR put it behind the bar - whatever you think is best.

How's it all sound?

Please sign up FOR THIS DATE AND VENUE here:

My thinking is get you somewhere else and then car share iyswim. It might be a bit of a random route, but I wonder if there is anywhere we can get you to and then pick you up en route from Romsey

SheikYerbouti Thu 06-Nov-08 16:32:18

Would car share.

Have tried trains at diff times and computer still says no, the fucker.

SheikYerbouti Thu 06-Nov-08 17:12:49


Bizarrely, it cost me less to get first class on my return than to get a standard return hmm

Fucking trains.

Mind you, it means I get space and morte importnantoly free (at the point of delivery) coffee to alleviate my inevitable hnagover

Right ladies - I need you all to help me

Someone is needing either accompanying back on the night, or someone to share a room with. So....

If you are taking a train back that NIGHT and want company then please can you email me and tell me where you are headed.

If you are staying overnight but don't have accommodation and/or can share a room/lend a bed, again, please can you email me!

I can explain all via email, but she doesn't want her details on the board iyswim

I'll be travelling back to Streatham, but I'd imagine she must be coming from further away than that? I'm not actually sure how I'm getting home actually, as the last train goes pretty early - might be nightbussing it.

Cheque posted on Friday Flame so hopefully you will get it by Wed/Thurs.

thumbwitch Sat 08-Nov-08 17:14:58

aorry ladies, am not going to be able to make it after all - crashing $Au against £ has created a large hole in finances after paying for plane tickets to Oz and not getting the (hoped-for) help from family. Have to tighten belt inordinately - not even allowed my G&B regular infusion!

Have a lovely time.

I'm going!

Can we start a new thread for this? Because every time I try to post or scroll down, computer says no.

It's old, slow 'n' knackered, a bit like its operator wink

Flamesparrow Sun 09-Nov-08 16:35:14

I will get a new thread started this evening, complete with my "paid" list.

Still taking payments what with the venue not even having sent me a price or menu yet hmm

I have an update on the left over money too, so will add that to the new thread. Gotta do dinner first though!

Flamesparrow Sun 09-Nov-08 17:35:46


With numbers as they are, you all need to drink £10 worth when you get there too... why do I not see that as a problem? wink
