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

Hels that makes you about 65% irish and its perfect for honary irishness however to get the 100% full commitment you should actually have a hip flask in your desk and take a swig every 30mins or so.

Although, just to make some of you jealous of me, i've just found out that my boyfriend has won tickets to Glastonbury through the Guardian. I'm so excited i could burst but i don't think that will be very pretty.

Have fun guys and make sure somebody has a drink on me!!

Just got back.
Lovely and wonderful and fantastic - Lisa and Claire thank you two so much for helping us n looking after us and not letting us get lost! You Irish are the most lovely bunch that I've invaded ever...

Mucho big hugs to everyone I played with and learned from I am dizzy with inspiration (and a little from sleep deprivation) and almost too tired to pick up my sticks.

Special hugs for Lisa, Claire, Cameron, Dec, Strugz, Hels, Jon, 2Bags, Ado, Amelie, Garth, Molly, Sinead, Nate, and a few more I'm sure for sharing your magic with me in so many ways,

With love, Filthy little fluff-bomb off to a free party biggrin

Hello m'lovelies...

Just before I take a long bath and collapse in bed, I wanted to say thank you all for coming over and making it such a great time.

There were a few missions to get people places, but it was so worth it - and Sunday especially.

Take care
Clare xx

Thanks everyone for organising and being there and being so much fun, especially Lisa and Claire, and of course my most wonderful host Cloudscape and Jamie for the chauffeur service hug

And then there's berpoi and and and biggrin yay biggrin
