Uni,  you are a VERY bad girl.
DH has sorted is gift today,, needed a trip to Spotlight.

Oh boy is it muslin?  Yeah yeah.

I hate Spotlight. The staff always patronise me because I know nothing about anything in there. It is  a complete mystery what that stuff is for?

If you can't staple it or tape don' t know what to do .

Gert,  the secret of success in Spotlight is to walk in and LOOK like you know where you are going. 
Def.  not muslin or cheese cloth,  but DH is pretty hadn't with tape,  and I'm pretty good with staples.   ;D

OMG I have just read through 6 pages of the retreat and seen nothing else on the forum.

I am picking Michele up at the airport (if she so desires) and anyone else if they would like to pm me. Then on Thursday we will go on a city tour. I'm hoping to leave for Gracetown mid morning Friday if that fits in with CP and anyone else who wishes to come with me.

A goodie bag, that sounds exciting. My DH is good at thi king of these things so will have to get him going.
I am so looking forward to this. Gracetown will wonder about all these people.
 :-* :-* :-* :-*to all those coming and to CP.

I'm exhausted thinking aBOUT IT and think I'll head opver to someones van for drinks.

CP, are you working on a bus to take us all down south or is it going to be up to individuals to take all those not driving themselves?
I'm sure it is only early days as far as planning is concerned but it might help to give us a clue in this regard.  Hally if Cookie can fit me in, how are you getting there?

We intend to hire a car as we will spend 8 days in Perth ,  with the Retreat in the middle.  If a bus is going we will go on it and hire the car after the Retreat.  We will have room for 2,  I would think.

The Forum is going to be very quiet when all you girls are away, but I hope those with internet on your phones/ipads can report in now and then, sounds like a blast.  :D

If there is no bus I will happily take Michele, Hally and Judy. Hally is fairly close for pick up and throw oout. ;)
We can stop at the Harvey Cheese place and stock up as well as other places. I'll have to see where else.

It is really going to be fun.
