    We have been chatting about a get together and it sounds that a lot of you are keen. There are a couple of things we need to agree upon before we can start to even consider it.
    1. The date, I recommend late September as the weather is still quite good
    2. BBQ or restaurant, I reccomend a BBQ, more sociable and we would bet to know each other easier, sitting round a table you only get to mix with the people close to you. I will sort the BBQ out with the best meat you have ever had.
    3.Large cottage or somewhere like a family holiday place, I suggest a large cottage, again more personal and we can do what we want and there is no need to worry about other people. Costs would be havew to be shared and the cottage I would imagine would be cheaper.
    4.Is everyone prepared to travel, we come from all over the UK.

    If there is anyone else who has anything further to add please be my guest and voice away. If you could all answer from 1 to 4 we can get a better picture of what we are going to do.

    Thanks to Lisa for the offer of help, if anyone else has any other offers of help it would be appreciated.

    The problem for me with hiring a cottage and everything is now having my shop and also I run MBS Events.

    I could probably only meet for a few hours. Which is probably not worth the travel for most people. I also have kids who I try not to spend too much time away from. The eldest spends weekends with his dad, so not such a problem. But the toddler is home all the time. My partner is the driver also lol

    I live in the Midlands, so I can feasibly get to most places.

    Hi Everyone, there seem to be a lot of cottages for hire and at reasonable prices if we split the costs. This weekend would obviously include our partners/family but I do understand some if you have children which can be a bit of a problem. This will probably only be for a Saturday night and I suppose getting a cottage for one night might be a bit of a problem.

    I could come for a sat night :) I do not work sundays. Might be able to work baby sitting out for the munchkin....or may need to have him with me.

    It is a shame we cannot go camping lol....may be easier (though I have never been camping in my life)

    I would be interested but why can't we just meet up in a pub or something?

    I know that some have other comitments but a pub would suit me better.

    Good Morning Everyone. Logistically this is going to be a bit of a nightmare by the looks of things. A pub would be good idea I would normally agree but we do not live close to each. I for one do not want to travel 300 miles to go to a pub, if we all lived close to each other a pub would be a fantastic Idea, saying that though, meeting in a large pub would mean very little organising, the only thing we would each have to do would be to organise our own accomodation.

    Something to think about.
