Spilt sour cream all over myself (I'm a classy broad) so it's a plum dress, not black.

You guys sound like you have great meet ups…I was nearly going on a conference in Perth and the first thing I thought was "ooh maybe I can meet up with some of the Perth girls".  But its not happening now.

Aww, so close! We'll definitely organise a special one if you do make it here sometime!

Should we find a different date if this one isn't working for people? Being a long weekend and all...

I didnt even think about it being a long weekend....

I can still make it but if most people cant it probably makes sense to reschedule

I'm unlikely to make it if we reschedule, but enough others might to make it worth it.

23rd is ok for me, or the Saturday either side (16th or 29th) whatever works for most

Hope to see you next time, limeandpepper! :)

For the ladies that were talking about outdoorsy stuff today and making stuff, here's a couple of links to start you off:

- www.tiergear.com.au (This is an online store run by a guy who sells lightweight gear, DIY supplies and is probably the hammock camping specialist supplier in Australia. There are some DIY instructions on the blog but these are all hammock-related items... including a hammock. The guy who runs it is really nice, is a SAHD and this is a side-hustle that's taken off)
- www.bushwalk.com (Australian bushwalking forum- covers a broad spectrum of topics and has a DIY section)
- Facebook group 'Hammock Hangers Down-under'-- which is good for FAQ about camping with hammocks in Australia.
- In Perth the groups I think of that might be of interest are Action Outdoors Association (broader activities), Perth Bushwalkers Club, the Bibbulmun Track Foundation, and maybe the Friends of the Cape to Cape.

Am happy to lend out Bibb track maps, Cape-to-Cape maps, and a PLB to people if those sort of things would be useful. I think the Friends of the Cape to Cape have a publication with track notes for short walks on it- I think it's called 'Walking in Circles' or something.

Offering my place for a stitch & bitch (or entertainment of your choice) on either 28/29 May or 11/12 June. I will PM my address to interested parties, if I have met you at least once or you're voucher for (ie you can bring a cool friend). Also we have cats so if you're allergic I can't promise your well being :(

I'm interested but can't commit quite yet!


The warning is enough! If I come, I'll either take antihistamines or risk it ;) I know someone that needs to deal with a range of animals though work but is terribly allergic to horses (read: bronchospasm and needing an inhaler). It doesn't stop her-- she just medicates beforehand and she's all apples ;)

At least one kitty will love that!

Sounds like it's a go. If no one has a problem with the dates by end of this week, I'll pick one :)

Is it daytime or evening? I almost always work Saturday evenings. Other time slots are 50-50 but I could ask to not be put on a certain day (though if they're short-staffed I might still be obliged to work).

Definitely a higher chance of making it during the day! Though I've been told that I'm going to get more day shifts from next month. I'm probably slightly more likely to have Sundays off. If I only have to work at night, then morning or early afternoon works for me, as I just have to get to work by 5.30pm. But whichever time/day is best for you/everyone and I'll put in a request to the roster manager!

A Sunday afternoon is looking better for me at this stage, if no one has any preferences. But no guarantees that I can make it even then, so if you have a preference at all, anatidaev, go with the date/time you prefer! Sigh, I quite like the hospitality sector but it can be so iffy for weekend social events!

Ok! Then it's 29 May, Sunday from 1pm to 5pm. I'll provide something sweet and something savoury, but bring a plate of your favourite crafting snack if you like. We'll provide water/tea/iced tea/juice too :)

I've got so far:
L&p, Happier, Englyn. Ms Terror, Stripey. Will PM an address later :) My BFF might turn up too!

Any Perth girls have a size 42(ish) foot, or a sister with that size feet? I have a couple of pairs of barely-worn leather flats in nice colours that I've realised I'll never wear again. Planning to donate to good sammy's if noone wants them :-)

Okay, so anatidaev has first dibs if her sister is a 42, melody has second dibs (she texted me) and englyn is third in line. I'm looking forward to watching you all try on these shoes Cinderella style :-P they're really nice shoes, they just didn't work for me.

Now to go cut my hair using the ponytail method for the first time. Wish me luck!
