    OK, so it's not even the end of September yet, but I thought I'd throw this out there after the discussion at the meet yesterday.

    As I said, I'd like to invite everyone for a Xmas get together at mine in December. Tentative dates are:

    Saturday 10th December
    Saturday 17th December

    I thought I'd make it a Saturday as it's not a school night, so no one has to worry about being home the next day. So, I think everyone should start considering which date works best for them so I can get the ball rolling :D

    ok, so on the back of the weekends chat, i have volunteered to host this at chateau wiz. the date is the 17th of december. menu to be decided, although lasagne seemed to come out a winner. i do cook a mean lasagne, even though i say so myself :p . as i am on the dole we might have to all chip in for the food etc, but maybe not, we will have to play this one by ear. bring a bottle with you all, but try to make it something italian, red or white it doesn't really matter, whatever you like to drink, or go into the shop and ask advice (or ask me :D :D ). it's a saturday night so no-one has to get up for school/work on the sunday, and my kids will be farmed out for the evening so no worries about noise etc (balls to the neighbours :p ). pm me for the address, it's fairly easy to find and only 10 minutes or so from some junction on the m6.

    could do with people signing up to this asap so i can work out how much to buy in and cook for.

    hope to see EVERYBODY here.

    Those attending:

    Italian food...Check!
    Wine...Check!
    Good company at Christmas...Check!

    I'm as good as there! :D

    Phill and I were mentioning last night that it is only fair that we all pitch in for this one, and we could go with one of two options for it. We could all throw a fiver into the pot - Pasta and so forth aren't much to buy anyway, so between us lot, there should be plenty of food. Or we could get all the stuff, and divvy up the total between us.

    I'm cool with it, either way.

    Should be a good night. :)

    sounds good.

    because i will have to cook the meal etc, we will have to get the stuff beforehand in order to get it cooking (hey, good lasagne takes a while to cook :D ), so if we keep receipts etc we can divvy up afterwards? it shouldn't be that much anyway.

    the main issue will be numbers coming so that we can arrange space etc. our banquet hall isn't exactly huge, but things can be arranged ;)

    and V, even if you can't make dinner, what are the chances of you showing after seeing duran? you are more than welcome. the kids won't be here and the neighbours can go jump anyway!
