Hi there, had anyone else noticed this topic was closed?
I just noticed it now and I suppose it was me (otherwise who else?) but it has to be an accident, I certainly didn't intend to.
Opened again, apologies for that.

I did see it was closed but I thought another would be started Thanks!
So I'd prefer the 18th or the 25th, and I am still open to another day if need be.

Congrats on the promotion Steph! well done!
did someone say comfort food and wine?! count me in! can't do this Friday but the 18th or 25th are fine at the mo... could probably do other days too with enough notice to fit around the rest of the family's busy social calendar!
