A number of things have cropped up at work today that I have to deal with before I leave, so I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to make it tonight. More likely that I won't be able to - sorry :-(

Anyhoo;

We are keen to come, so I've added us above. I've just checked and I'm due to be looking after my mum the whole weekend, so will have to negotiate with my brothers/sisters to get some cover.

Sorry - can't make this month due to work. Jim - can I transfer the £20 to you or hand it over in December?

Not absolutely positive about making it this month. If I can do it by bank transfer that would make sure you get the money.

Hi all, sorry but won’t be over on Wednesday. :(
We have had to use the ferries quite a bit recently and will be again on the run up to Xmas and sadly the cost just takes the pleasure away from what is a good night meeting up.
Can’t commit to the Xmas dinner either as the eldest son and family may come to see us that weekend :(
Hope you are all well and look forward to catching up probably in the New Year

OK.

Let's call Wednesday off. It looks like it will be ruddy cold anyway.

I'll PM bank details for deposits.

I'll post menu again so you can make your choices here ~ H+C require that info 1st Dec.

Bye for now

Jen said she'd take of it. (Jen can't bear to see your sad, disappointed faces when the peculiar, misshapen random lumps of plastic fall out of the H+C provided crackers ~ which is odd considering the cars we cherish. ;). )
