I would have happily brought DW with me but She wouldn't come.  :( I have been away before camping with a bunch of Uni students when I was younger. She is not the jealous type plus she knows that I am very trustworthy.

Then you have a wonderful marriage den, there was no way I would have trusted my ex in a houseful of women.  He thought he was God's gift to them and would have been in his element.  Current DH is completely the opposite and has never caused me any angst in that way.

A good marriage is built on trust and other things. I asked DH if he would like to come when we had spaces .........his reply "no bloody way." He'd rather play with the old cars and cook his own meals, although DD will probably do it.

I agree Cookie, my DH will be happily playing with his boat the weekend I am away with you all.

Have heard back from the Knee Deep lady this morning. She has said they can do shared platters for $25 per head. It will depend on the chef and availability of things but it consists of things like bread, lamb coquettes, buffalo chorizo, fetta, olives, scallops and there is quite a lot on each platter. I think this may be the way to go as then everyone can eat as much of whatever as we talk and mingle. I have to give her an answer by Monday so I can put down a deposit, so if there is a positive response I will go ahead. If its too much, I'll look at Plan B.

It sounds wonderful CP. Thanks. :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Is it near Dunsborough? I didn't see it on my check out trip. I saw the new chocolate factory though. :D :D

CP, did you get my message?
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.

CP,  sounds good to me.

DD, for heavens sake ,  don't get cold feet.  My DH is looking forward to at least one other bloke. ;D

We are actually coming to WA for 10 days as we haven't been west for a number of years.  Also have some good friends in Perth.

Sounds good to me. Maybe a few cheese platters too, theres a few of us the food challenge that I am sure would love good cheese.
