Mish | 3495 comments Hi Everyone,

Since our last get together was a huge success, I thought I’d get the ball rolling on our next one :)

For those interested in coming along to our next get together, please put your names down in this thread, and I will advise you with details of the venue once the numbers are confirmed.

Date = Saturday, 6th August
Time = 11:30am for lunch
Location = City
RSVP = 23rd July



Also the Mystery Book Swap turned out really well at our last get together, so I thought it might be fun to do it again.

Mystery Book Swap

1. Bring along one book to the venue to give away – preferably a new book or a book in excellent condition.

2. Wrap the book in whatever paper you have at home.

3. Place a tag on the wrapping with the description of the genre.

4. Each participants name will be placed in a hat, and when your name is drawn, you can select a mystery book from the pile.


It will be a lot of fun! I hope to see you all there :)

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments Yay it almost that time again.

Like I told you earlier you can put me down as confirmed for now. The only way that would change is if work did somthing unexpected. :)

Fantastic! Brisbane hasn't had one yet so it should be great fun for them. :)

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments Fingers crossed that you will be able to attend Andrea. :)

Mish | 3495 comments I just stepped out to the shops and it's freezing here!!!!! I've got 3 layers on, and the cold is still making it's way through.

Oh Michael, you will def need to pack your winter woolies on your next visit ;)

Poor things :( It is glorious here...chilly overnight, but beautiful blue sky and a little bit of warmth. Due to get a horrible cold, wet and windy front over the weekend again though :(

Yay!!! Great job Mish and definitely count me in too. It's already in the diary. It will be great to see everyone again and it's great that you are coming again Michael. Our special interstate guest. Fingers and toes are crossed that nothing changes. :)


message 15: by Michael (new)

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments I will put in for leave soon Elaine. Then it will just be a matter of flights and accommodation. One thing is for sure I will not be staying at the place I stayed at last time. Don't care if I have to pay more. :)

You're welcome Tracey and it's great you're coming. Didn't want to see you miss out again :)

I know accommodation can be pricey in the city Michael but hopefully if you can book something soon you may be able to get an early bird price. Hopefully work can approve your leave quickly.

Thanks Mish.


message 20: by Michael (new)

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments That's the plan Elaine. Also will make sure I bring plenty of warm clothes. Look forward to seeing you Tracey. :)


message 21: by Molly (new)

Molly Billygoat (MollyBillygoat) | 117 comments Mish, you're a legend! Put me down as a definite with the proviso that hurricanes, earthquakes and sudden cardiac arrest would probably make it difficult for me to keep my promise.


message 22: by Michael (new)

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments That's wonderful Molly. Hopefully we will end up with more people than last time for the meet-up. :)

Hey - where'd the rest of my message go?! I added smiley faces and friendly sentiments and such!

Haha, yes, I also look forward to seeing everyone again, and hopefully some new faces too! No kid's party to rush off to this time. :)


message 24: by Michael (new)

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments You going to wear Adventure time again? I was thinking of going all geek in winter gear lol. I promise I will be super social :D

Wonderful Molly! You're on the list :))


message 28: by Elaine (new)

Elaine | 2001 comments Molly, Michael, Mish, Tracey, Andrea and anyone else who is coming....we should maybe consider staying on in the city and maybe doing dinner too. I know last time Michael, Mish and I could have stayed on and chatted for hours so perhaps something to consider and think about. That way Michael you'll have company too. I know though some of you come from further afield and it may not be possible but for those that would like to, I'm keen to kick on. Sorry Mish didn't mean to hijack and take over your organising but just thought to mention that too. :)


message 29: by Michael (new)

Michael (michaelswensson) | 10592 comments I would be up for that Elaine. You are right that we could have stayed on for a lot longer. :)

I had a great time too and could've definitely stayed longer. I'm not sure if I could do a lunch, and a dinner in one day. Usually if I have a big lunch, I will only have something light for dinner. But I will try and stay as long as I can :)


message 31: by Rosie (new)

Rosie | 273 comments I would love to go. Count me in.

Thanks Michael, I'll be sure to bring a few books for the group too :-)

I have a chronic pain condition, but if I dose up and pain allows, I'd be more than happy to stay longer and 'kick on' for dinner.

Michael, there's a Travelodge in Southbank and I understand their rates are reasonable and it's very central. Just the basics though, no perks.


message 34: by Elaine (new)

Elaine | 2001 comments No probs guys we can play it by ear. Just putting it out there as an option. It doesn't have to be dinner but maybe we can hang out a bit longer? Either way catching up will be great.


message 35: by Suzie (new)

Suzie | 359 comments Would be great to catch you all again, but I'll have to be a Maybe at this stage. I have a family function on that arvo/evening, and I'm not sure what time I need to be there. I hope I can squeeze in a quick bite and a chat :)


message 36: by Jess (new)

Jess (holdenv84) | 38 comments I'm a maybe at this stage. Just need to confirm a babysitter

No worries Jess & Suzie. Got you down as maybe :)
