Lupins71 Tue 19-May-09 14:52:58

(a slightly nervous)TMAM

Sunday 26th July
(even nervier) TMAM

AprilMeadow Tue 19-May-09 15:54:40

Why you nervous TMAM you've met most of us before x

SKYTVADDICT Tue 19-May-09 16:32:05

I think either for us but will check with DP whether it is easier to come on way down or come back up the next day (if that makes sense!)

JamInMyWellies Tue 19-May-09 17:09:22

Either day works for me.

I've only met about 4 of you and that was a year and half ago! grin

Sorry about the rain, I can sympathise, it rained for 14 hours non stop on Saturday during our girl's weekend, at the beach. I'd love to go to the Kennedy Space Station though. envy

AbbyLou Tue 19-May-09 20:13:15

We're going to Spain very early on the Sunday so can't make either sad. One day I'll get to meet you all.....

Pinkjenny Tue 19-May-09 20:19:59

Either is fine for me, we are both off work the following week.

JamInMyWellies Tue 19-May-09 21:34:02

Is it DP/H's as well? For the love of god if it is dont tell him I told you all about the shredding incident. grin

SOH you could come with me I could bore you to death with my bad taste in music and Archie could teach M a thing or two about tantrums. wink

AprilMeadow Wed 20-May-09 12:48:09

'tis open to whoever would like to come grin

So my plan of picking a day didnt really work then.....

How about the Sunday.... Pink that means you could travel down on the Saturday and get to us at a decent time so that the kiddies can all play before tea and bed. LG&T that means that you can have a drink on the Friday and not worry about sore head syndrome.

Castiel Wed 20-May-09 18:42:11

Either day here. Will be there with bells on, dragging dh behind me. Any other men braving it?

TMAM, don't be nervous, you can leave before the sacrifices start.

Tillyscoutsmum Wed 20-May-09 18:54:45

I'd love to come to along on the Sunday if that's ok with everyone ?

We're travelling back from hols on the Saturday so wouldn't be able to do then. Not sure whether DH (and dsd) will come as well or whether it would just be me and Til. Castiel - I suspect if he does come, I could pack him off with your dh to bore each other talk bikes grin

Mine will have left the country..........

I'm looking forward to flirting meeting with some lovely young men. grin

Castiel Wed 20-May-09 20:51:54

I'm hoping my dh makes a better impression than last time when he got a migraine and had to go and flipping well lie down.

Tilly, two of them in the same room, talking in that detail about carbonfibre? That's the apocolypse isn't it? Something terrible would have to happen.

SKYTVADDICT Wed 20-May-09 21:53:36

DP will be coming too. I asked him which day and he said either.

Sunday probably best as will be able to stay longer as would have to be a quick visit Saturday to make sure we got to the site and got caravan key before the reception shut.

AprilMeadow Thu 21-May-09 02:34:51

SUNDAY 26th JULY

Pitch up any time you like

Dh will more than likely have his train set up any running for any of you that have geeky partners!

BBQ food - Will get a stash of burgers and sausages (nice trip to Costco) if you fancy anything else please feel free to bring it along. I will provide salads, breads etc Will make a cheesecake or two and some biscuits for the kids that they can ice (should keep them busy).

Oooh how exciting grin

Garden is 90% finished and apparantly dh arranged for our friend who landscapes our gardens to do a special scented area just for me with a bench etc whilst we have been away, cant wait to see that.

Will email you all my address nearer the time. Please can you add how many of you will be attending next to your name or add yourself on the list below so i can make sure i have enough of everything:

APRILMEADOW - obviously grin 4
PINK
TMAM
LG&T
CASTIEL
TILLYSM
SKYTV
JAM

Castiel Thu 21-May-09 11:36:04

Tils, dh says get your dh to bring his bike and they can go out for a long Sunday ride. The thing is, I don't think he's joking...

3 of us obviously. Will be staying at the MightyMumofTheYear's house beforehand hopefully. Would have loved to travel down with you though Jam, still could if you come to aformentioned BrilligMum's house first...

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 21-May-09 11:44:51

grin He'd definitely be up for that. Either that or he'd be glued to any available tv because I think its Tour time, is it not ? We're still "in discussions" at the moment as to whether the bike is coming on holiday with us hmm. Are you in Giro hell atm as well ?

Sorry for digressing. AM - will let you know soon whether its 2 or 4 of us. Am I right in thinking you're sort of East Mids/Peaks area ? We will need to get back to drop dsd off at her mum's so just trying to get an idea of how far away you are so I can confirm numbers iyswim.

Castiel Thu 21-May-09 11:52:01

Hampshire... grin

Tour Widow, Giro Widow, it's all the same to me.

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 21-May-09 11:55:08

Hampshire ? Really ? Where the bleeding hell did I get East Mids from ?!? Its tempting to stay an extra day on hols in Cornwall and visit en route home smile

charleymouse Thu 21-May-09 12:04:19

Okay explained to DH that Sheffield is a stones throw when people are travelling from the other side of the world (cheers TMAM).

So he has suggested I find him a half marathon to run locally and we will travel down on the Saturday and he can go running then meet up with you lovely ladies on the Sunday. Bless him he is worried about me travelling all that way by myself.

April is there any thing in particular you would like me to bring/provide as it is not fair for you to have to sort/do everything what with providing the venue and being preggers and all.

Woo hoo grin

APRILMEADOW - obviously 4
PINK
TMAM
LG&T
CASTIEL
TILLYSM

AprilMeadow Thu 21-May-09 12:52:53

LOL at East Mids! We have a selection of tv's that your dh could be glued to grin

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 21-May-09 13:07:24

blush Please tell me someone lives in East Mids ? Is it Abbylou ? Or am I just going totally mad ?!

It's me, I live in the East.

Consider me 1 adult and 3 tiddlers with ginormous appetites. I will bring some meat and a salad or two. smile
