lol Suzanne.

I've just seen your other thread re your hectic week, including the wedding. I hope that all goes well for the day and that the weather keeps fine for the big event.

We are having a family get together on that weekend at a venue midway between Perth and Bunbury. My daughter has organised it, but so far she hasn't heard from my brother as to whether he will be there for the weekend :-|

Know HOW you feel Allen
daughter has invited 200 guests at £30 A HEAD to the wedding breakfast,me and hubby and her partner are paying plus we have the evening buffet as well at £9 Quid a head for 3oo people, daughter has booked all the family in at local hotels,but they are cancelling a the rate if knots,for whatever reason,its terrible,we have to pay for the late cancellations.x :-D

Wow that is a headache for you!

My daughter has booked a cottage at an old farm school which can sleep 22. She has paid for 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) at $450 a night.

Originally there were going to be about 20 of us there but now we'll be lucky to get 14.

When my daughter got married we only had about 50 guests. My daughter refused to invite people who she didn't know ie distant family members on both sides. She must have known that she'd be divorced a couple of years later

Merlin Report 31 Jul 2012 13:34

Margot, it was the whooshans that did it. :-D I,ve been RRd but who cares if people with tiny minds get enjoyment out of it,why spoil little kiddies playtime. :-D :-D

I could tell you, Suzanne,where he is from and what he is like, but I'd probably get my second RR ;-)

He's a 'sweetie' really :( not a jelly tot tho. !!!!!


JustJohn Report 26 Aug 2012 22:15

Can you not say Duchess of Cambridge? Suzanne met her in Tesco in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlllantisiliogogogoch.

I met a previous Duchess of Cambridge when I was young. Her daughter became our Queen. Our dear Queen rhymes with Gasoline. Monster Brunch rhymes with jolly good lunch.

:-D :-D


Suzanne Report 26 Aug 2012 22:22

no JOHN didnt see Kate in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerych whatever,
saw her in TESCO holyhead,she doesnt shop in waitrose in Llanfair whatever anymore,to posh for her,no one takes a blind bit of notice of her in tesco holyhead,we are all so used to seeing them around here,my sons cooked for them several times.x

anyway do you want to join our club or not???? :-D :-D :-D


JustJohn Report 26 Aug 2012 22:32

Suzanne. Do I have any choice in the matter? Roy with his eagle eyes has spotted I meet all the criteria of membership of your elite band.

Have read this thread and think it is disgraceful what you have all written to get your R&R'd. I cannot condone any of you and hate to think I am categorised the same. All I did was say that I thought Hayley was beautiful and I was RR'd all over the place.

I just thought she was. And I was trying to be nice :-( :-( :-( :-(


Suzanne Report 26 Aug 2012 22:35

im sure Hayley is lovely,

welcome to the elite club. :-D


JustJohn Report 26 Aug 2012 22:40

Suzanne. Hayley is absolutely gorgeous :-D :-D

Only 29, so a bit younger than me. But with a certain mystery and maturity beyond her slender years and body. Beautiful inside and out :-D :-D


Suzanne Report 26 Aug 2012 22:44

are we talking about the same Hayley??? :-S

29 !! ;-) ;-) ;-)


JustJohn Report 26 Aug 2012 22:49

It is Hayley Empress of Drama. She pretends to eveybody she is 21 - and she could carry that off.

But a little secret - she is actually 29. But still youthful looking and gorgeous. Jealousy is a terrible thing, girls. Some have it, others want it :-D :-D
