May I suggest the week commencing 1st November? Maybe the 3rd or 4th? (Though my niece is due on the 4th, so maybe that's not a good date.) I hear the Bermondsey Kitchen has a special offer on cocktails, so I'll moot that as a venue for consideration. But I am just suggesting these as starting points....
My best suggestion is a quiet corner where I can finish the bottle of Baileys I started tonight.
Why did James close the thread on yummy mummies. Jac and I and, in time, sister of TLMJJ could have offered our services. Along with Tharg and the bearded Mrs Ivanhoe of course. It would make compelling viewing.
But that is off the point. Cocktails sound good. I have a worrying amount of availability in November. Except for the weekend when the good husband plans to take me off to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. Trouble is that I don't have a clue when this is.
sarah2 - you can't remember which weekend in november your 10th wedding anniversary is?!
That's normally a husband thing isn't it!? I'm appalled.
We do have to take into consideration the cider making weekend as well. Surely that's a social event (I'd hope it will be anyway) - it won't just be for making cider, it'll be a fun day out for all the family! Activities on the farm (presumably the normal weekend farm type stuff), bread making (of some sort), and of course getting your feet wet jumping up and down no some apples ;-)
