Probably best tol leave that up to the driver & passengers to work out, but just putting it out there first that its probably a fair thing if the passengers come to the driver if its out of the way, and it also makes packing up and leaving easier and quicker.

No cooking classes (lack of time I think). Although I would love it if maybe we could have a demo on yoghurt making but we'll have to see how we go for time. Salz77 as much as we would love to have you, I think that it may start to complicate the organisation side of things if we have people coming and going. Maybe next year if its on   :)

I've just had a big catch up on this thread as I haven't had much time on the forum over the last week. I still haven't booked my accom for Thursday night yet, so hopefully  I will get time this week.
Hally I know what you mean  about leaving the kids. I hesitated for a long time before i decided to come on this trip. We have only left the kids for a weekend once before, earlier this year. Mind you, they had such a great time and didn't miss us at all. They didn't even want to come to the phone when we rang to see how they were! I don't know why I am worrying really. However, I  have never left the kids in DH's care before and gone away. I have Visions of non stop takeaways and really late nights!

ES, yes Dh are a worry. When my boy  was a baby I went away for one night, dh said I cant stop him crying... I said did you feed him, mmm NO...

Not worried about takeouts they dont like them, more concerned about them getting on. They tease & play but dont know when to stop etc. ds will say " I am dying here, you have to feed me". Mnd you dh will give him lollies just before mealtimes >:(

Kind of figure, just enjoy ourselves & clean up the probs when we get home. :)

That's funny! I'm not really worried. The kids are old enough now. My DD says she is going to do the cooking while I'm away. She has got out her junior master chef book and has started to choose recipes.

Emeraldsue it sounds as though your Dd will have everyone fed.

Emerals sue if you pm Chookie or mcmish they will tell you where they are staying for the Thursday night and maybe you could stay at the same place.

Hally could you put crown prince in charge for the weekend. Leave a list of instructions for him to follow for each day. eg eat breakfast, then take ........out of the freezer for dinner., put dishes into dishwasher etc.

Think I will suggest it nearer the time. A list of what they can & cant eat & times woukd be great.ie no lollies before meals, fruit between meals, then yogurt etc.

I think I've sorted the travel arrangements out. I will be pming a few people in the next couple of days to check things with them. I'll then publish it on here using our forum names, so if you see any gremlins in it they can be fixed.

Don't feel guilty cookie, you told me you wouldn't be back until mid June. I'm just putting it up here cos I don't have time to reply individually to say payment has been received. If other people remaining can make payment it would be much appreciated as I have to put down payments for the bus, houses, linen and food. Ta  :-*

Am so envious of you all.  Hubby gave me his blessing to go but I can't get any time off work. :'( I hope you will have time to keep us updated when you are away.
