Yeah - you can count us seasoned veterans (!!!!) in. Always up for a Mad Butcher (he's mad ya know?!) BBQ fest courtesy of you guys

Reminders always a good idea tho' - it's a long way away

Default Re: chch - july 5th meet up - FOOD thoughts!

For guidance re: food.
Given the weather we won't do a BBQ, but we'll provide some hot food such as chicken nibblies / pizza / sausages/ pasta etc if others want to bring finger food that we can put out and people can dip in and out of as they want to - breads, dips, crisps (chips!), fruit, crackers, sandwiches, salads, DESERTS (hint hint) etc etc etc - you get my drift - hopefully

looking forward to seeing everyone
Lee & Vicki

Hi
We came out in November 07. We would love to meet some new people. We lived here for 4 years and then returned to the UK for 5 years before coming back. I have always found it hard to make close friends here. I am not sure it its a cultural thing or just me! I am at the feeling lonely stage now and when I need a friend they are all asleep in England!
We have 3 children aged 4, 6 and 8 years.
Would love to come to your do.
We're all vege, would that be a problem?
Thanks
Al
