Hi All,

If you're interested in Yum Cha (I'm suggesting the Scholar at Dixon as sort of being central for those of us who have to travel to get to Canberra), please post a reply.

I'll chat with the restaurant on Thursday, to let them know how many of us are coming.

Looking forward to finally meeting you Spikey.

Brunch - DD wouldn't survive until dinner time with Yum Cha (and nor would I from the nagging).

I would love to, but can't come until 12:30.  If it is brunch, it will be a sad no sad.gif

By Brunch, I mean meeting at 11:00am or later. Unless you all want lunch instead?

Brunch is a no, lunch is a maybe...

warning: mint vent ahead....
ILs are overseas and have been since the beginning of December. They arrive home the weekend that DSDs go home (DSDs go home 21st and they arrive home 18th). So in order for them to see the girls they are coming to stay on that weekend, except we don't know when. The celebrant for our wedding is actually IN Canberra on the 19th and wanted to meet up in the afternoon, but I can't guarantee that we wouldn't end up with MIL/FIL/BIL/SIL/children etc here and of course they didnt both actually planning anything *eyeroll* But knowing them they will jsut pop in for 2 hours on the Sunday and I'll be annoyed because we could have met up with celebrant on the Saturday. So I have to wait until the day before to know what I am doing. Which is awesome given I have to leave on the 22nd to start my new job. So due to my ILs inability to actually make plans, I have to meet up with our celebrant for the wedding on the 13th, it's only ONLY day she was free. We are meeting at Collector at 10am. Fingers crossed no fires pop up in between!

i would love to come, but sadly will have to bow out on this round.  DD was diagnosed with a chest infection last night, and whilst she should be fine by then, i don't want to risk making plans and then having to bail (and i have no one to leave her with if she isn't 100% by then).

Next round count me in original.gif

#13 Feral*Spikey*

Okay, I shall try to organise a table for lunch. It would seem there are about 12 of us, which is a nice sized group!

#14 CherrySunday

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:56 PM

I've never had Yum Cha, but would love to try it - and meet a few EB'ers!
I can't make this weekend, but keep me in mind for next time!

#15 Feral*Spikey*

Posted 09 January 2013 - 07:05 PM

No worries, I'm sure there will be more occasions on which to munch the good stuff. wink.gif

#16 Bendigedig

Posted 10 January 2013 - 07:28 AM

brunch at 11 or lunch at 12 suits me - much later and DD gets feral (dropping day sleep). looking forward to it!

thanks for organising Spikey

i love yum cha, and no one else in my family does - but i'm busy this weekend sad.gif have fun!

#18 gemgirl

Posted 10 January 2013 - 12:54 PM

Please count me in. I'll confirm with DP about whether we have plans and if not, if I'll bring a kid or two, but for now, just me. Unless the group is already too big original.gif

#19 Feral*Spikey*

Posted 10 January 2013 - 04:57 PM

Nope, not to big!

I contacted the scholar today, and we have a booking for 12:45pm (only time available for a group of our size). Hopefully that will pan out for most of you (sorry Jo, I did try for midday!).

So, details:

The Scholar (you need to go Upstairs)
23 Woolley St, Dickson
Dickson, ACT 2602

Booking is under "Teresa", which is me, Spikey IRL. If you want my mobile number, please PM.

For those who haven't met me before, I'm tall, blonde, and chubby. DD is raven-haired and Chinese. I suspect that a large group of women and children (and one or two guys) will be relatively obvious. laugh.gif

Wonderful I can't wait If I get lost I'm going to need your number *Spikey*. Me and DD can't wait.

#23 FeralAlpacasFool

Posted 11 January 2013 - 05:29 PM

I'm in. It will be just me and DD2 (5 mo) so I will have a pram also Spikey. But please everyone you will have to excuse me if I have to wear her in the Ergo and do the baby bob as she will be due for a sleep at some stage and she doesn't always like the pram!

Poo sticks from me too PD. Was really hoping to catch up before you wander off down the coast. Maybe we can do lunch or coffee separately?

Lovealpacas, no problem, we'll help you with the pram, I'm sure there will be somewhere to park it where we can all ogle your baby - I loved my Ergo, DD lived in it.
