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.
Posted 04 May 2012 - 10:40 AM
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.
Posted 04 May 2012 - 11:25 AM
I've been picking up extra shifts on Fri night, but seeing how they are extra ones it means I can have the night off So yeah, I should be good for most Fri nights provided its planned

Good news - I've been promoted at work. YAY, a little bit more money and more responsibility and will look better on my resume. So am happy with that.

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!
Anyone got exciting plans for mothers day? I'm hoping to chillax!
