Thanks Bedlam. I have offered to sort the car bit out for CP so I'll be in contact some time.

I haven't been on much.....I have a 7 seater and can take people although I usually like to knit as a passenger when DH drives us down south. Children contained and usually sleeping and 3 hours of knitting is luxury  ;D

l  think l will be too much of a scary cat to wear the bazaar dress up out in public , but if everyone else is  l will too
 ( l will make shore it a good disguise one so no one will reorganize me  remember l live here , l cant just drive away  )
 it will be so much fun to do something l would not normally do
 love the idea of pj  party on firday night , l also wear them around the house like judy  when l can .

Great offer Meagan - just bring your knitting to the retreat, you might find a spare minute to click away and I'd love to see what you are making.

I have my transport organised for the retreat. Came across this info as well, that might be some help. Thank goodness we will be drinking wine!

 :o OMG thanks for the warning Gretch. I love putting a bit of ice in my wine, but will have to leave it out from now onwards

Yeah that  was pretty scary. No more ice for me either. Probably won't need it that time of year.

just gotta make sure that the weather doesn't turn the drinks (or us!!) to ice  :o :o That would be even scarier  :D

Okay, just caught up on the replies to my question, and was initially pleased dress up was Saturday night, then aghast it was on bus!  But what the heck, I'll just go with the flow.  Now we need clarification if Friday night is pj night :D :D :D

Gert I love the gopher and van. My DH is going to build a tear drop van like that one to tow behind the A model Ford for weekends away with the crew.

Meagan I will be in touch re filling your spare seats for the retreat.

Oh cookie that is wonderful . Will the  A model,be able to pull it?  What a hoot. Men and their toys!

My DH once had a shipwright build an ice chest for our old wooden boat. The damn chest was big enough to fit ME into and cost  a bomb. The same shipwright  built a  teak pedestal for the boat loo using screws that cost $25 each.  My DDDH then painted over the teak. Of course I went ballistic. The old boat now lives on the Gippsland Lakes and looks better than ever at well over 70 years of age . I miss it but not the cost of maintaining it. It was called Peaced. The dinghy was called Half Peaced.

Who would have thought ice could be so dangerous?
