Steph I have talked to my OS and he is happy to run me up there on the Friday and pickup on the Sunday and as Oxford is on the way up we will pick you up, if Friday and Sunday suit you, and if you can't get any other transport, I am determined to come to this one as I have missed both of the others.

Billie - that would be brilliant. It would also save Tina going out
of her way if I couldn't get a lift. Thank you very much .

Maybe we could have some show-and-tell, Kim: if anyone has a particularly nice/unusual mini-book, for example, they could show it, give a quick run-down on how it's made and - if there's interest in it - the instructions could subsequently go on the forum. So much nicer to see in the flesh rather than pictures.

Gawd! The mere thought of Mia behind me rabbiting in my ear all the way to Coventry is enough to put the mockers on that little plan!!! She'd be always wanting to stop for a rest anyway.

Wow I go missing for a week and you lot are planning trips away !!!!


Well Kim I would love this, only prob for me is with the date, for me April is quite soon for saving. As we are only 3 pay days from Christmas it means that all this years money is on Xmas. January is for Feb (Martin) birthday which leaves Feb and March wages, if I get any from the school. Plus of course I assume you are going to want deposits and payment before the date anyway.

April is ok for me, but then it's only me & Gary, so I dont have kids to worry about, birthdays that month, etc.

Not too mention it'll probably all go on a credit card anyway Laughing

Yes, April is OK for me and, I know, for Mia, but any later would be no good for either of us.

I like to get the date in the diary ASAP, when it's something this important. A rough idea of cost is good, but like you say I won't be doing anything about that until Jan.

OK for me, Kim, but then it's just the two of us as well, so no kids and other expenses to worry about. Do you have an idea of price, so those who have to save can get some feel for it?

i dont have a price as yet as im trying to find out prices of different rooms etc , plus the lady on reception i rang on friday had no idea what i was talkinga bout when i asked about the room and meal package that is written on the website , so I gave her instructions to find out , tell all her colleaugues , so that when i rang back after the bank hol. weekend everyone would know . lol! i could almost hear her going ggggrrrr down the phone .
i am trying to make it as cheap and cheerful as possible and will tell you prices as soon as i possibly can .

up to now ,i am looking at a premier inn so room is £47 for the night so if you share its £23.50.then brekky and evening meal and the cost of the room etc has to be split between however many is going

Well that seems a reasonable amount for us to start working on - thanks Kim. Don't they make you sick when nobody knows what you are talking about. I had a person send me a letter telling me my Carers Allowance would now be stopped and when I telephoned to tell them I hadn't ever, ever HAD any Carers Allowance they denied all knowledge of the letter until I lost my rag!!

Well I don't, as anyone and everyone knows, lose my rag unless it is the last resort and quite simply I have enough forms and notifications to do already and it just made me see red!!! I have never been one to lose my temper (I don't actually think I HAVE a temper) but it is obviously lurking close to the surface at the moment ... probably because I am dealing with it all on my own without Kenny.

Some of the ways people deal with these things are so unsympathetic it's untrue. My Mum had a bit of hassle with the bank after Dad died, I was there when she went in and did all the initial work so I know it was them messing up and not her, but she kept getting letters aabout his savings account long after she'd closed it, and it just takes you off guard and is uneccessarily upsetting.
I do hope that this sort of thing doesn't happen again.
