Not a happy bunny.

I'd love to meet Siouxie, & am miffed I can't; I'll echo Novo's sentiments.

I was very fortunate to be offered some work for a company in the UK working as a freelancer online. Unfortunately, the hours available to me tend to be unsocial ones (as they are UK based and mostly when UK staff are not available) and I often work from 1:00pm (weekends) or 7:00pm (weekdays) until the wee small hours, finishing between 3:00 and 4:00 am.

Needs must though - and it feels fabulous to actually have an income again (though having to set aside 24% for tax and CPP as self employed does reduce it somewhat)!

indeed.

On the subject of BE-ers unable to make the official meet-up: I'm going to be in/around Barrie from Monday 16th, then Toronto Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd. I'm open to meeting up for a coffee/cocktail outside the official meetup if anyone is so inclined

Yes. Go in the door, straight to the back, curve left towards the bogs and left again. It has books on the walls!

Thankyou sir, as long as i have the correct venue! I was thinking that "the library" could be a 1980s yuppie wine bar!

I've been trying to not use the internet/fb/anything addictive too much so not been on here for a bit, and although I would love to meet up again, we're moving house on Saturday morning so my presence is definitely required

Have fun peeps...

Alrighty, so I was meant to be going for coffee with a friend beforehand, but that's just been cancelled... so I can pretty well get there whenever. My plans were to get into Toronto for about 5:30... anyone else going to be around that early?

We're aiming for this side of 6 pm. Could even be a bit earlier just depending on travel time from RH.
