Timing/Date issue - I've got a friend's 30th that day, and I'm doing the decorations.

Er, also been super busy with work and forgot but that's just an embarrassing excuse. I'm so sorry!

So, was thinking of a housewarming party, for those I have already met. Next Sunday, 2:30pm onwards. Thinking of a fairly relaxed type event, maybe a couple of boardgames, food, chat type of thing. Nothing too strenuous, as it will probably be hot.
If you want to come along send me a message and I'll send you my address.

Sorry i am still over east. I wont be able to make it.

Can whoever took the group picture at the park meetup on Sunday the 12th (can't remember which phone was used, but not mine) at the overlook in King's Park, as well as anyone on the ground when we were climbing the netting structure (and took pictures) upload them to dropbox (or photobucket or google drive or onedrive or flickr or whatever) and PM me link(s)?  :)
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

Oops, I'm not sure I saw the original message, sorry to not reply. I can't do Sunday afternoons due to training but I hope your house gets sufficiently warmed :)

I can't do either day this weekend, but my availability is pretty low right now (particularly on weekend afternoons) so no point factoring me in or you'll be putting it off forever :-P

Surely we can gamble on it being cool enough for a Food Monkey brunch by the end of March / start of April?

i.e. Happier will not be a happy camper unless she gets a vege bagel within the next month.

Suggested dates:

Saturday 25 March
Sunday 26 March
Sunday 2 April
Sunday 9 April

I contacted her through Facebook and 26th March works for her :)*

*And she's away 2 April, but said if that worked better for everyone that's OK, but i note she has missed the last few

I think I'm quite cute as I am but I will be a glamorous redhead if it lands me easy multi-million modelling contracts and I can retire within a year. SHOW ME THE MONEY!

Absolutely!

Also, my phone is doing some interesting autocorrect errors. That should have been Mustachians, not mustachioed.

Mid-week meetup

A surprising number of us are now available during the week, so how about a mid-week meetup somewhere central?

My proposal is a Food Monkey brunch or lunch on Monday 10, Tuesday 11 or Wednesday 12 April. Who's available and interested?

I am available both the 10th and the 11th :) I would also vote brunch as I feel like lunch might have a few workers there and it may be busy?

Yep! 10am? Or I can go earlier / later... Just figured if we went earlier those who drive will hit the last of the morning traffic, given it's a weekday :-)

Sounds good, i will attempt to create an event on the facebook group as well
