Hubby and lad didn't like Brissy. I wasn't too keen either. Having said that we didn't get the best introduction of it. My sister went to the UK so we missed out on her showing us around. Were going to look at it again though.

So your going to Sydney eh!!! Hmmm... nice one. they will need your talents around there. You'll make a killing.

Have the best last meet. I know you will lol

hugs Lace xx

are you in rockingham perth or brisbane way?

We have weighed up the evidence and Brisbane felt like a bit of a booby prize when we worked out that we would have to work our arses off in Sydney to get to the life we are at in the UK.

Melbourne has the vibe, the mountains for ski ing and the beaches that Brissie doesnt and ive been told off several people with me in agreement that it reminds them of manchester or vice versa in the way it has new and old buildings, trams and plenty of cool things going on.

We will see!

So True blue toffee you arent alone after all maybe LOL

cheers love. Looking forward to seeing them. cant wait. Oh very funny Jackie. haha. We rung up yesterday and the travel lodge had tons of rooms, so we are playing it by ear to be honest. It depends what happens with the lads now as they have planned to stay at my eldest lads house that night (without my knowledge) it may mean me dropping them off and coming back to the meet. someone off another forum is coming later in the affy too. she is doing the race for life first before coming along. She is called Jo and is lovely. Di, she may have a chat with you folks as she is a teacher in the UK and going over on her skills.

We will probably bring a camera too Mand x (thinking of you today hun).

Alkristen and Clare are getting there 11.30ish to 12ish. He wont be posting on here this week, so if anyone has any messages for him give us a shout and I can pass them on.
