Thank you Gertie :D

I was just wondering whether the sleeping arrangements have been made? Has everyone already been allocated a spot?

CP is charge of the beds but you will probably just take MEPs place.

and hope she wasn't sharing with anyone  :D :D :D

Only joking Amy, don't worry about it.  CP has everything arranged and will, in due course, let us all know the final details.

Rainbow I am sure there will be plenty of room for you. As kezza said they will probably have room,CP will have space too,and I'm sure there are others. If no one else can fit you in we will squash up and you can come with us. (I can say that as I'm driving).

Thanks Judy, I just wasn't sure how much information has already been sent to everyone. Sorry if I sound like a nag, but I'm just very very very excited! :D

That's exactly what we were all like early in the piece Amy but we've had time to settle down now.  To start with there were questions flying left right and centre - that's perfectly normal in this situation.  It's not often someone else organises a holiday for us, we usually do it ourselves and know exactly what we are going to be doing.  Keep reading the thread though, most things you want to know are in there somewhere.

Thanks for the support about the lift, good to know that there will be a space and good to know that we will all be among friends even if we have never met anyone before, I am sure I am not the only one feeling a bit nervous but excited about the weekend  :)  :)

What is to be nervous about?  Anyway a glass of Margaret River wine can fix that.

I may have missed something along the way over the past couple of days, but Amy, I have been wondering how you got on with work - any outcome yet with regards to a) the bully and, b) your job?

Hi Cuilidh :)
I'm writing my resignation letter tomorrow. I'll probably take it in on Monday or Tuesday because I have to return my uniform anyway. Luckily I was only employed as a casual so I can just leave whenever I want. I'm a bit nervous about handing in a letter like this, but I'm so unhappy in this job I know I have to do it.

I'm also emailing one of my past lecturers at a college I attended to see if she knows of any jobs going that use my qualification ;)

Thanks for checking in Cuilidh, I appreciate it :-*

Well good luck Amy. You seem quite capable with any job, fish factory, child care, news agency and now cleaning. You are not afraid to try different things . At least you have a go and are not afraid of hard  work. You just have to find a job that suits and hopefully a job with a good boss with mentoring skills.

How are you getting from your place to Margaret River. It is a long drive  isn't it?

Thanks for the update.  Be strong and good luck!

Just rermember in your letter be factual, and, athough it is probably really hard, try not to be derogatory about your (ex) colleagues - beyond stating the facts of the matter - move on with your head held high.  Everything is a learning experience, yours hasn't been good, but leave it behind you now and look forward to the future ... and the retreat weekend, you lucky lady you, I'm sooo jealous!
