You will not miss me, I will be wearing the same ensemble as last time.............

Please also remember ladies and gent to bring a re-gift for the raffle.

We have had Breast Cancer and Testicular Cancer so far (I think that is what Wend sent the money to last year). I thought the local Baby Ward this year, unless anyone else has a pet charity they want it sent to..........

Wend Report 7 Mar 2013 20:56

OMG Stray - I don't think anyone would want anything I keep in my handbag - ROFLMAO!!!

MtG - it was Prostate Cancer last year and we did well - can't remember how much exactly - Jane knows, 'cos she counted it (*whispers, think she thought she'd better for some reason, wink wink!)

****MO***Rocking***Granny**** Report 9 Mar 2013 07:59

Hi All
Not long to go now
Hope you get your make up done in time Joy,lol
Wend,since when do you need magic knickers ?????
Wish I was as slim as you
Ive lost weight,but Im not that slim yet......sits and sighs with envy
I do however agree about your handbag though
Are you being escorted by hubby ?
or will I need to put you on a train again ?
June told me she was thinking about coming so will have to work on her a bit more in the next few weeks
Got a few bits sorted for the raffle,cant wait to see you all again
:-D :-D :-D


MotownGal Report 9 Mar 2013 20:05

Thanks for correcting me Wend. I knew it was one or tother, testicular or prostrate. Both worthy causes.

If anyone has a pet charity, then sing up and we will give the proceeds to you to donate........................hope that is ok with everyone?


StrayKitten Report 9 Mar 2013 20:08

as you can imagine the raffle prize was well, "different" thats for sure lol,

ill hae a dig around to find somthing more apt ;-) maybe a framed phot of moi??



Wend Report 9 Mar 2013 20:27

I think the local Baby Ward is a very good idea, Mtg.

'Help the Aged' next year perhaps? ;-) :-D

Btw Little Mo - am I right in thinking that I dropped my handbag upsidedown on the ground somewhere and the contents spilled out all over the place?

No, I think I dreamt that.


Jane Report 9 Mar 2013 20:31

LOL Wend.I do remember counting the 'dosh' and putting in your bag,telling you several times how much lolol

As for the Peterborough raffle ...........brilliant.I bet there has never been a raffle quite like that one :-D.Amazing what comes out of handbags.I do believe there was a pouch of cat food too...was that from lovely Daff?

I'm feeling very sad as I am not going to be able to get to the Meet :-( :-(...Reason being I am going to be in London the weekend before.A special one that my daughter has arranged for my OH's 60th.So two weekend trips to London is just not on .But I will be there in spirit.....someone else will have to go and order the drinks and food this year :-D :-D.I'm so sorry not to be meeting up with my old pals and new ones.But there is always 2014 :-D :-D


Jane Report 9 Mar 2013 20:34

WEND it was at the station !!!! all over the place .We all picked everything up and stuffed it back in your bag :-D can't you remember that????? ;-) ;-) ;-)


StrayKitten Report 9 Mar 2013 20:35

Jane Report 9 Mar 2013 20:46

StrayKitten Report 9 Mar 2013 20:49

Wend Report 9 Mar 2013 20:58

Vaguely Jane ha ha ha! Also last year you wrote the amount collected down on a piece of paper and put that in my bag too, just to make sure :-D

Really sorry to hear you won't make it this time - I shall miss your laughter x :-D

Btw - can anyone recommend a good quality cat food?


Jane Report 9 Mar 2013 21:06

Wend you will have to give me your Mobile number so I can call and say a big HELLO to everyone :-D


Island Report 9 Mar 2013 21:12

Wend, it must have been 2011 when you dropped your bag at the station cos last year everyone b@ggered off earlier and left us two like a pair of Billy Nomates.

You didn't drop anything on my watch :-D


****MO***Rocking***Granny**** Report 10 Mar 2013 08:03

Sorry you wont be there Jane
I will miss both you and Rach
Wend you have no idea what you did at the station that year have you ? :-D
I do remember getting you on the right train ,and then pushing you out the doors at the right stop
Didnt your daughter pick you up ?
That London water was very strong that year,pmsl
;-) ;-) ;-)


MotownGal Report 10 Mar 2013 13:40

Thank goodness I don't drink, that is all I can say!!!!!! ;-)

It was 2011 we made a combined party to get Wend onto the right train, we all traipsed down the Tube, but Mo took over from there. I was worried all the way home.

It's all the fluoride in the water I think.

Sorry you wont be there Jane, I shall miss you and Rach. But I will be in touch.


Jane Report 10 Mar 2013 13:53

I still have a chuckle when I think of us all at the station with Wend :-D :-D .I will miss seeing everyone again this year,but as I will be in London for the weekend before and then the Pompeii Exhibiton after the Meet a 3rd trip is just not possible.
How many are going this year? Foggy will have to save all the tables again like he has done the last 2 years lol
I would like to give a little something towards this years Charity so could let me know how to get it to you please Maddie?
