Winery Tour for the Laydeez

    Recommended Posts

    OK, I've said it so now I'll put it into action. If I can get some numbers together I'll look into organising a tour of the wineries for us ladies (and I use the term loosely...) There's a company called Paramount Tour Services that specialises in this kind of thing so if you can let me know who's definitely interested I will make some enquiries. I think it will probably be best if we plan it for the New Year though, otherwise half of you will back out at the last minute with xmas parties/shopping etc. Let me know girls.:)

    Hi Liz

     

    You know I'm a wino so definitely count me in!:goofy:

     

    Please though can we go at the weekend or during school holidays?

     

    Looking forward to it. If we do it in the New Year I think a new arrival (emmylou) will come on down too...

    You know I'll be up for that one Liz! New Year is good for me. I'll have the MIL staying so I'll be more than happy to get away for the day.

    OK, we're up to about 8 I think, fairly sure I can add a couple more. I'll sound them out at the weekend then start working out dates and prices etc. I'll reckon we all agree it will have to be a weekend, Saturday? I know damn well Richie won't book a day off work so that I can go out on the toot!:biglaugh:

    Yeah Saturday is good for me, I'm sure MIL, FIL and OH should be capable of looking after a 5 year old for the day (and probably Sunday as well, as will need another day to recover).

    Liz, if there's not that many of us, how about checking out Limo prices as well. I hear they are quite reasonable. Maybe you'd like me to do that hun?

    If we are going to do it girls, we could do it in style with our posh frocks on! Ha 15_1_57.gif

    Posh frocks and limos - cool!

     

    Don't mind which way I go - bus or limo just so long as I don't have small ones pulling at me all day and I don't have to drive:D

     

    Really lookiong forward to it - if it's after 23rd January, count my Mum in too - she will love it:jiggy:

     

    See you all soon

    now then .....

    this all sounds very exciting and i would love to come (parties permitting, so will need date as soon as anyone has it, then i can get something in my diary and not book a party!). Guzzler is just buttering me up for his next big weekend away fishing trip, so a day touring around the wineries, almost sounds like an even deal (well almost anyway!). Please count me in too, if there is room and end of January onwards sounds fab - get Xmas and our house move out the way. Limos, buses, posh frocks or just boardies and singlets (can you see I have the ozzie lingo now?) - whatever the dress code, sounds awesome!

     

    Good one Liz ....

    I would love to come, not sure there would be a whole lot of point, can't drink at the moment, :arghh: but might tag on and have just a couple.

     

    I was going to offer to drive, but your numbers are too high now, and you probably wouldn't want to clamber in and out of my car in your party frocks!

     

    I will keep an eye out for dates.

    Hi Jo, welcome to the site. Of course you can come, the more the merrier I say! Send me a pm when you're close to flying out and I'll give you my contact details if you like in case you want some help when you get here.

     

    Best wishes

    Liz;)

    Well if I tell you I won't be drinking for the next 6 months either that would give it away ;)

     

    Yep, we have a little aussie surprise on the way - not the best timing, but getting a bit more excited now.

     

    Hard as it is to visit and not drink, I could have a couple couldn't I? Hate to miss out me! :biglaugh:

     

    Catch up soon

    FoxyChick.......Congratulations!!! You know you can still come with us as shouldn't we all be smelling the bouquet and describing tones of toasted almonds......:wacko: Mmmm, maybe we'll get better at it the more drink???

     

    AND

     

    Jo, you couldn't have picked a better day to come to Aus, as its my little boy's 5th birthday on the 22nd December. 2 reasons to celebrate now!! :D

     

    AND

     

    Deb, we might have to take you up on the offer of a minibus driver as I need to get my finger out and see how much a limo cost (but judging by the numbers, its going to be more like a coach)

    Hello M'Laydee (think Parker a la Thunderbirds)

     

    Stonking Judi, I like it, I like it alot. :notworthy: I bagsee a seat facing forwards though coz after winery 3 I may not be well. I thought I should tell you this now rather than risk an embarrassing incident later.

     

    No mention of Doritos though so it may not be a goer!!!;)
