More on the party tomorrow....in the meantime:

See the countdown bar above this? We're all going on holiday next month. Eleven of us.

And I have laid out the first plans for the Crazie Holiday.

[deep breath]

Driver: Bionic Dwarf. Passengers: cyberkitten, me.
Driver: RCA. Passengers: K, Sleepypete.
And the Aginoths in the bus.......

A and Mrs A in their old room with LMD.
LMB and A Jnr in the little back twin.
Sleepypete and Bionic Dwarf in the left twin.
cyberkitten and me in the right twin.
RCA and K in the annex.

Food (getting more complicated by the year!):
General groceries for 9, split 7.5 ways (half for the kids).
RCA and K will do their own sundry groceries.
A volunteer to do the sundry grocery shop? I'll make a list ready.

RCA and K will sort their own meals - unless they can eat the meat meals.
I am shopping and cooking for me and cyberkitten (now there's just the two of us it's easy enough to make them in advance)
A volunteer to shop and cook for the meat-eaters? (costs to be divided) - if you can include RCA and K in the meals all the better! A challenge, methinks.....:-)

Suggest the pub at the bottom of the hill on night one, with a decent meal washed down with a pint of Dogs [drool]
After that suggested veggie meals will include shepherds pie, pasta, bangers and mash, casserole - easy to fit in with meat meals.
Plus one night out (place to be decided) to celebrate all four birthdays. (Bionic Dwarf, me, Sleepypete, Mrs A).

And this is just the beginning......I'm gonna need a holiday when this is all over......

Do you get the feeling we have done this before? A few times?? :-)

That is quite an itinerary, plan, I am not sure what you call it. But it seems as if you have it down to a science.

Sounds wonderful hunnie, and I'm certain that the preparations will all be worth it. Here's to a fantastic time, and just to let you know, I'm totally jealous lol.

I'm sure you'll have a great time and let's face it a change is as good as a rest! I think some time away with your friends is just what the Doctor ordered! It does sound a bit like an military expidition though! :0)

It certainly sounds complicated...AND a lot of work, too! LOL!
But I bet it will be ooodles of fun and it sounds like a grand group, my dear.
It is so good to get away from the 'everyday'...I hope lots and lots of pictures will be taken.

Wanted to say..but forgot....I would LOVE to bring The Ice Cream to the Party. I've got it all picked out!

I'm sure Aggie volunteered us to do the meat eaters shop? or did I hullicinate that? We're still hoping to get a couple of meals made & frozen in advance.....

There's (what looks like) a nice medieval banquet place nearby:-)

Looking forward to getting away now - hopefully I'll actully be better by then!
