Folks just hold back on making payment for about a week. I need to get firm numbers first although everyone bar a couple have expressed they are definites, so please let me know asap if you are not coming. I have allocated people into houses, and each house has a different tarrif rate so $ depends if the numbers in the house change. Roxy and anyone else if you were still interested I can put you on a waiting list?

Hi guys, I had emailed Denise to say that I thought I would have to cancel as my priorities have changed after a five day Farm Planning Workshop. I need to devote a lot more time to our farming business and so have been cutting things out of my life that too me away from that.

However, a return email from Denise has made me change my mind as this is really such an amazing opportunity to meet so many people from here and it may never happen again.

So, I'm still coming!!! ;D

A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Glad you changed your mind MJ. That was quick, I looked at your first message and looked again and it had changed. (for the better).

So glad you are coming MJ.  Hopefully it will happen again but the first one is always memory worthy.

Yes I am in Monkey Mia and not moving Gert. This is our annual 'holiday'. No touring until later in the year when we hope to go to SA.
We don't take a lot of notice of the dolphins as we go fishing, and see lots out there and also lots of tiger sharks this year. It's sad when you bring in a nice fish and only a piece of him comes up as the shark has bitten part of him off. Then shark then circles your boat and that spooks me a lot. We see dugongs, turtles and the other day saw an enormous manta ray.
It's a great place to do nothing. Lots of reading going on. The caravan park is running a biggest morning tea this morning.

Lucky you Cookie, Sounds perfect.
Glad you are coming MJ, I dont get on here as much as I used to but am so looking forward to putting faces to names.
CP, thanks for the details and costings, looks fantastic and appreciate all your efforts. Just want to confirm my respite, have been told it shouldn't be a problem, then will transfer money. Are you sure $30.00 will be enough for grocery items, although I guess we can all add extra at the time.
