Well I've just spent a good half an hour checking out all those houses CP - absolutely beautiful selection of homes, cannot believe how classy they are and the fact that we can hang over our balconies and yell out to each other (only joking, I'm not that noisy) is another bonus.  30 people - that number is set in concrete now?  Bring on August ;D

Wow, 30 people. That is truly amazing.

Cookie just think what it can be next year if this is successful and it looks like it is going to be a load of fun. Hope we all can circulate and meet everyone. Maybe a bit of house hopping or nocturnal bed visits.   ;D ;D. Mind you my nocturnal visits are usually to the loo.

CP has done a great job and I am sure she has chosen the house most suitable for the first night BBQ or get together  so we had better not trash it. We may have to BYO chairs, glasses , plates and cutlery. That will be interesting to sort out in the morning.

I'm sure I read somewhere on the seaside homes site that these holiday homes are for families not parties - how are we going to party without anyone knowing about it  :-))

No parties. Just a bunch of geriatric people  meeting and greeting each other.  How could we party? Only a few of us already know each other and we only everh have sedate coffees together. ;) ;) ;)

CP,  I have checked out all the houses and you are a pretty smart cookie.  Thanks for the trouble you have been to for all of us. ;D
