My DH would love to come as he loves women and women love him. He cannot cook, or shop.He can, however, poursa mean glass of wine but only after he fills his own glass first.

My dh couldnt think of anything worse than a bunch of giggling girls talking about cooking.

My dh, CLUELESS, was in the bath a while ago, asked him to turn the oven on, he said HOW ??? :o

CP had to show him


H your next challenge, teaching DH how to turn oven on  ;D

Good to know a DH will be there, does he cook the BBQ?   To save me going back on the pages and pages can you let me know about 1. goodie bag?  and 2. dress up??? I have tried to find it but its a bit disjointed so just a bit of help please

Word of warning,  my DH doesn't do BBQ.   
Like Gert's DH he likes women and they like him.  He also likes wine.
He is coming with me as I get lost in airports,  and we are visiting good friends in Perth.
He is also a sweetie and because I want to catch up with all you wonderful people, he is prepared to come also.
So looking forward to this trip, and so grateful to all who are obviously putting themselves out to make this a great  weekend.

I think it may be easier/cheaper if people just bring a goodie bag for themselves ie. a pillowcase or a bag that has had some purchased items in it. For the winery tour, just dress up bizarre bizarre - secondhand shop or dress up box. Will be emailing everyone probably next week or so once I get my head around this week.

Thanks CP.
My DH does an excellent bbq. Haven't told him yet that he has to get something for the goodie bags.

Hally, my DH is the Same. I rang him from swimming training a while ago, and asked him to put the oven on for me so that it would be preheated for when I got home. He asked me "how?" too.
Oh, and he doesn't BBQ either.
On the plus side, he can be charming and pour wine

My DH would love to come of there was more 'blokes' coming. He is not a wine drinker at all, but doesn't mind a beer.


CP we went for a drive down to Gracetown today and our phones couldn't get a signal. Is that correct? They are Telstra. No phone would mean no iPad playing or lessons. :'( :'( ::
I took a couple of photos and will post them. The ocean was really wild and beautiful. We called in at the Margaret River cheese factory on the way home. If my passengers would like to I'll call there on the way home. Harvey has a great cheese place too.

Please tell me that is not true.  I cannot believe that . I will be truly pissed  off .   I feel sick in the stomach.

Dashing den  will be doing the early morning run H . There will be no boot camp for me as I am well and  truly over it. Years and years of gym, walking , running,  jazzercise  and every other fad have taken their toll on my body. These days I am a champion eater and drinker which I well deserve.

Men doing a BBQ is so sexist . I am sure we can manage while the boys pour the drinks.
