Thanks ladies I am very happy to be coming to Melbourne and looking forward very much to catching up with everyone.

So sorry to hear that you and Richsrd won't be coming Katie. Sad news for the family. Hope to see you both again next year.

Marina, is it too late to add one more to the tram lunch. My friend is a late inclusion to joining us in Melbourne and is now coming to Alyces class on Saturday. If you confirm it is ok, I will send money straight away. Thank you.

Kezza, I have been able to book a seat for your friend.  May I have her name please. 

Because our seating arrangement has now been changed to 3 x back-to-back tables each seating four people we can take one more booking if anyone else wants to put their name down.

For those who haven't paid (with the exception of Trudy whom I can work around), full payment will be required by next Friday.

Don't forget to let me know by then if any one has any specific dietary requriements.

Thanks again Chookie and Kezza for organising for Colette to take my place at the cooking class, it's greatly appreciated.

Today I've been to Spotlight so I picked up my feather boa and mask for the FF.  Don't forget we're all also giving a $50 gift voucher for our lucky dip gift to each other.

Thanks for the voucher reminder Judy. If anyone does forget their boa or mask I know a place very close to the hotel where you can probably get them.

Katie, I just read about Richard's Aunt.  How sad for you all but lovely that Richard and his parents can make it over to the UK to spend time with her.  You both will be missed in Melbourne!

Hope your on the mend from your op.

Is it essential that we are in dress up?

Gee I think I better make time tomorrow and read this thread through, I had forgotten all about a mask and feather boa, and the gift voucher,  very busy every week, and I'm going to be on a cruise the week before better get myself into gear.

Thanks Trudy. I am sad that we can't make it to Melbourne, but it is important for Richard to make this trip with his Mum & Dad to visit his Aunty. I'll certainly be keeping an eye on the forum that weekend to see what everyone is up to.

I'm doing ok after my surgery, but I still can't use my hand. I go back to see the surgeon on Monday to have the stitches out and to start my hand therapy. Richard is doing a great job looking after me.

Im starting to get really excited now.  The Tramcar Restaurant has been fully paid up for a group of 11 people.  I hope you are all looking forward to it as much as me.  I know well have a great time.

I'm really looking forward to it too Marina.
We haven't made any specific plans for those of us that will be around on Friday, but there are lots of options available. The markets, a walk around the chocolate shops ( spending the money we saved on not doing a tour) , catching a tram too ???? And heaps of other things. For those that haven't been to Melbourne before there are Explorer buses. I'm sure we won't be bored.

I'll be happy to tag along after you cookie, you seem to know so much about Melbourne. I do want to go to the Queen Vic market though as I haven't been there for years.
