Posted:Ok so after have the chance to get up to Uberstaff and meet all the loverly Irish folk that went, ive decided that they are all so nice that they should be visited very soon.



If not only to steal more staff trix wink



So far they have kindly offerd places to stay, but are not sure on numbers but we are all grown ups and ive started this here so we can be a little organised.



Im thinking the weekend of the 17th June we fly over and come back on the Monday , then we can have much harcore spinnage on sat and sunday along with much tea drinking and doobie making smile



Call it a tribute to Uberstaff cool



So what i would like to know is who in ireland can make it to Dublin that weekend, and who in the Uk wants to come with me biggrin



So far the list of the UK attacking team is:



Frodo

2bags

Strugz

Dunc (in spirit)

Birgit

MCP

Skully

Vixen

Nate



So any other takers? flying from gatwick return will be max 40 if we book in next few weeks! smile the earlier we can decide the cheaper it will be!



Let the dissciussion begin weavesmiley

Posted:Ok well I just managed to get home safe and well. I'm a bit smelly a bit sheep pooh covered and a lot smiley! bounce

Thank- you to everyone that was there for making it so much fun.

I have a few special thanks to add

Matty thank you for the overnight stays in Cardiff. Thank your house mates too for putting me up. hug

Beccie thanks for the lifts to and from the airport hug

Dec thanks for a comfy sofa and the best showers (yes I'll remember about the 7 next time ubblol ) Thanks your flat mates too for putting up with so many slightly stinky very sleep spinners. hug p.s. are you sure you don't want to be no.5 sleeper?

Strugz thank you for thinking of invading and getting us all to join in. P.S. I think your bag and my rucksack got upto something at the weekend as my rucksack now has a squeak like your bag. hug

Faberg thank you for all the organising and sorting. You did a fantabulous job! hug

Claire thank you just for being you! hug

Molly thank you for teaching me to hoop. All the bruises were worth it. Molly Mole will soon have all she needs to join the happy band of pirate faeries hug

Jonny UCoF you are a gem that shines very brightly hug Thank you for making me smile so much. hug

Cameron and Simon I still want to replace my TV with you 2. Half an hour of you two is worth the TV licence fee alone! Cameron I'm still not sure that your road crossing skills are all that safe ubblol Thanks for leading us about Dublin. Glad to hear you are coming over to Falmouth.

this list is getting a bit too long and I need a bath and some sleep so I'll just say to the rest of you.....yes that does mean all of you....thank you all so much for making it a fantabulous weekend! It was great to meet you all.

Roll on the Invasion of Wales.......... I'd better go and do a bit of looking about and see where you can invade. Do you want mountains with water falls or beaches with cliffs?

I walked up the road with her to the Cafe one day. I was wondering if she was a HoPper. She was singing on the Saturday night...... any clues anyone?

Some seriously nice spinning from the irish lot (especially Ronopotamus), don't think I've picked up quite so much in a long long time!

Massive thanks to all that came, especially Strugz/Lisa/Claire for instigating and organising this adventure and Helen for providing a bed and shower! grouphug

That may have been my last random poi trip for the next couple of years, glad it was such a great one!

Helen... that's dedication!! Solstice will be great tonight, but I'd be too shattered for any more partying. And never worry, I don't have money for anything these days. Literally. However, I think Uberpoi and Falmouth would be marvellous reasons to get horribly into debt.



Le sigh. Well sure, it's only this summer and I can work over the winter to pay it off.



And it's most definitely time I learnt some new moves biggrin biggrin biggrin
