Snowball

Jema and Snowballs birthday bash and fibrey weekend.

We are killing several birds with one stone.
It will be at Ginkotrees farm the last weekend in September.

For those who can't make it but still want a fibre frenzy I could host one here the weekend before that.

Chez

We are a definite maybe. We don't need accommodation, because if we come it will be in the van. I am going to keep that weekend clear of work commitments and see how the children (and us) are coping with New Term Exhaustion. Snowball

Can people let me know their accommodation requirements please. Chickem

If we can make it we'll just need a pitch for our tent! Jamanda

If we can make it we'll just need a pitch for our tent!

Have pm`d you Snowball. Snowball

Excellent, are you coming to keep Chez and BA under control? Nell Merionwen

It's ok BA just got a *looK* Cool Snowball

That's a bit harsh Very Happy Sherbs

I would appreciate a bed space in the barn for myself and the Sherbling if possible. Snowball

No problem. Sherbs

I told the Sherbling about this, she is very keen to come. She asked "is there a bath?" I said no. She said "yeeeeeeeaaaaah!!!!" Nell Merionwen

Laughing Sherbs

This would be the 28th and 29th September, am I right? Snowball

You can dunk her in the stream Chez

Pants on, obviously, as per Leo's precedent. Smile Snowball

Definitely pants on.
Definitely September 28th to 29th.
need to think about food and drink now.
Cathryn

I really hope that we can come to this. Life is a bit up in the air at the moment. Snowball

It would be fantastic if you can make it, it's been ages. Cathryn

I'm working full time (and the rest) but not for much longer. I've just had my short term contract extended for a month but I should have made some decisions by the end of it. You'd think that as we are one of the nearest it should be easy. Rolling Eyes It would be good to catch up. You've had some major changes in your life since we last met. Sherbs

Definitely pants on if I have anything to say about it!

She's mainly interested in the fact that there are friendly dogs right now.

I can bring cheese again if you like.
Snowball

Yes please to cheese. Very Happy catbaffler

Count me in - don't mind where I sleep (within reason!). Snowball

Excellent, I am sure we can make you comfortable. Liz in Ireland

And me please, is there space in the barn, the tent etc is heavy to carry and I feel old Smile Snowball

Wonderful Liz, you are booked. Very Happy gardening-girl

Are there any ideas about the fibrey part of this yet? I haven't been to one before so I don't really know how it usually works. Do we just bring whatever we happen to be working on or are there planned activities or something? sally_in_wales

usually you bring current projects but there are various people willing to show new techniques or do some troubleshooting. Sadly I can't make this one, but there are a couple of my spare spinning wheels at the farm that people are very welcome to use mochyn

I'll be there to help with what I can. NorthernMonkeyGirl

I could do with a mind potion ATM
Sherbs

If we are doing any skill sharing, would someone be able to teach me how to crochet? Barefoot Andrew

Smile now all we need is Snowball out of hospital again.

I'm now harbouring a mental image of DSers knitting, whittling, spit-roasting an enormous hog, and quaffing alarmingly effervescent home brew... all at Snowball's bedside.

I think I'll still be haunting the M1/A1 that weekend; or at least in no fit state to be seen in public Sad I'll have to unpack properly rather than "upend boxes and see where things naturally gravitate to after a couple of weeks".

I do need remedial knitting help at some point, somewhere, though... Very Happy

Been out of touch...Hope Snowball is on the mend.x.x Snowball

I am home, and beginning to recover. My plan is to use copious amounts of alcohol as analgesics if I am not recovered. Very Happy Barefoot Andrew

Good plan Very Happy

Nell Merionwen

Unfortunately my good news has come tempered with a little bad.
My induction weekend is this weekend so we can't come. Sad

Well, you will just have to get them to change the date, or postpone your studies then.
Priorities, woman, priorities Very Happy

Sad Snowball

Beginning to give some thought to food.
I was thinking a simple buffet. Pricey is bringing pork pies and Davina is making home made chicken nuggets. Lots of eggs and bacon for brekkie, obviously.
I am thinking quiche, salad, samosas that sort of thing. What do people think?
Can I put in a request for cake please, I am not that great a baker.
Ginkotree

Everyone bringing a plate of something yummy to Sally and Gareths wedding worked really well.
Soup and bread for Friday nighters...??
Snowball

Oh yes, soup and bread is a good idea. Very Happy Ginkotree

hopefully Sally and Gareth will not need the Soup Cauldron for thier weekend and we can borrow it.. Very Happy
I shall make the soup.x
gardening-girl

Please NOT tomato soup!
Shall I do some puddings?




Also Penny,are there matresses in the camping barn?
Snowball

Thank you Ginkotree.
G.G>, puddings/s would be lovely. A friend is bringing her rather yummy date tart.
cir3ngirl

Wesley has allergy so if anything that has been near any peanuts could have a label please i would be most grateful Snowball

Sorry that I forgot to mention that cir3ngirl.
Any other allergies / special requirements?
