Just thinking of my ageing legs remind me on not to go to the bar too many times as I'm sure it contributes to my snoozing time !

We'll organise a gorgeous waitress to take care of you and bring you beer that Polly pays for.

See you all there.

Some of us are working the night before so may need a few matchsticks for the eyes, but I'm sure I will cope.....

Pig and Whistle, thats the big one by the river, in Eagle Street, anytime from about midday on New Year's Day
Lady Carbery & my self will be there - its great New Years day tradition

Probably wouldn't want me there either after a session on the pop.

He's not building a new house is he? One going up in my street (well, still technically my street, but not living there since I moved out and into an apartment in South Brisbane a couple of months ago).

Sounds great and thanks to Cappucino for telling me about it as I had not seen this post. Providing we can get a bus or train into the CBD we'll come along!

Shouldn't be a problem as we have friends who travel up from Gold Coast via rail each year. Which area you travelling from ?
