So I've just booked for 4 but we still have an extra place if anyone just wants to come to the comedy club.  I've texted Joy and she's going to book for her and Linda so Calire can you just book for you and Paula and ask them to join the bookings with mine, my full name is Joanne Henderson, she then said she'd reserve seating for us altogether.  We need to be there for 7! Should be good.

With regard to the rest fo the weekend, I'd like to have a meal and a bottle of water (read wine)! then just chill and chat.  Then Saturday depending how much water gets drunk I may have a swim and a chill then I wouldn;'t mind heading to Chester late afternoon, stroll around roman walls/river, afternoon tea then head to venue for 7.

Does that sound like a rough plan or is that just me being super OCDish!!!

Booked for Linda and I.

heading to Chester late afternoon, stroll around roman walls/river, afternoon tea then head to venue for 7.

Jo, are you thinking of going straight to the venue or coming back to the hotel to get changed out of our winter woolies?

I'd suggest that due to the hotel's location that, if you want to go into Chester in the day and get changed for the night, then instead go out for lunch and come back to the hotel to chill and get ready, then go back into Chester for the evening??

All sounds fine to me, I'll go with the flow and will enjoy just being told what we're doing instead of having to think for myself!

Jo, thanks so much for organising the comedy club tickets, I'll give you the money as soon as I see you  :)

Very excited!

ThatBrummie - I can't believe you've asked me that!!!!!!!   ;D ;D ;D  I'll explain when I see you, anyone that knows me knows the answer to that one!  Don't worry we can sort money.

Plan is fine and we can just decide ad hoc about coming home getting changed etc.  It's going to be 80 degrees this weekend and I'm wearing bikini, sarong and flip flops anyway so I'll need to change into white linen trousers and vest top for the night, NOT winter woollies!!

I've just got the voucher for me & Claire, will phone up to book now.

I like the sound of lunch & a wander round Chester, then back to hotel for a chilled rose or twowhile getting ready for the comedy club  ;D

Jo, are you on facebook?

Jo likes Facebook almost as much as she likes camping. Or even less...
Although we have at least tempted her to try FB, I'm still working on the tent  ;D

According to the hotel website Little Sutton train station is the closest, it's a mile so a few quid in a cab.  Linda and I are aiming to arrive for 3ish.

Ah OK, look forward to hearing about your hatred for camping and facebook, as a self confessed tent loving facebook addict I may need some convincing  ;)
Just thought it would be easier to plan stuff on a private fb group rather than on here.

I'll be getting there sometime between about 1-2pm I think  :)

I love it when someone else takes control  ;D

But count me out of the swimming cos I hate being in water as much as you hate camping!!!!

My train gets into Liverpool at 1.58pm so I'll meet you at the station Jo.

Yes Im in girls, Val and Eileen will sort out their tickets direct with the Laugh Inn.

you are staying in the Double tree so depending on what time you want to get there, there are a few options.  All good fun.  The laugh inn has a bar in town which is great, it has a courtyard and has live music some weekends, my son also is the Manager at one of the bars so we can have a blast in there, fun guaranteed and he has no expectations now of my friends so not disappointments there.  My daughter may join us too, maybe the lst time before she goes to Oz:(  So excited.  I am only 5 mins away from the hotel right next to Zoo so we can meet up easily. ;D :D

Hi Miss Sunshine

We are staying at the Woodhey House which is by Hooton, not the double tree???

They have suggested we get there for about 6.30 as they are busy so we can meet at say 6 in a bar near there for anyone just joining us for the evening.

Phew, slobbing is good  ;D

As long as I get up to date with everything by Thursday I may get on the road after the school run and head to Cheshire Oaks for an hour or two or window shopping before I check in at hotel. I must be good though or I'll only have enough money for bread and water all weekend if I go mad there!!  :o

Just wondering, is everyone bringing a little beverage or two to consume in the hotel or just planning on buying drinks there? Packing my bag and think I might stick a bottle of wine in...just in case!

A bottle or two may slip in my bag between now and leaving, also a sneaky tin of quality street managed to appear in my case this morning, not sure where it came from but it would be rude to take it out.

Sooo, party at Jo's room then  ;) Just checked and it seems the rooms don't have fridges so will pre-chill my wine and soft drinks.

I'm soooooooo excited!!

Don't forget swimming costumes if planning on having a dip in the hotel pool too.

I'm almost organised so I will get on the road once I've dropped J at school in the morning, will try and spend birthday money at Cheshire Oaks for an hour or two then head to hotel for about 2pm. Squeeeeeaaaal!!

I'm getting excited, I'm off to town after a meeting to buy some combats that fit, my last pair are 2 sizes too big!!!  Then home to pack and I'll be leaving after work tomorrow.  We usually just drink warm wine, wine is wine after all.

No doubt it'll be a manic run round in the morning to finish some worky things, pack, find my cossie, drop off the dog and find out where I'm going....  Followed by an afternoon / evening of complete chill out, good food and mad women  ;D   Can't wait !!

I'm going to have to scroll up this thread to find out where I'm actually going tomorrow now, hopefully I'll be there mid afternoon.

I hadn't printed my voucher and they've let me in (after 10 minutes of them umming and arring!)

Flopped on my bed now, cuppa made, book at the ready...let the relaxation begin! At least until the rowdy lot arrive anyway!

Having read the reviews and seen the pics ... I'm struggling to see which part of that weekend was adult in the sense of being a good example to the children - maybe some other definition of adult ;)
