    @Carmel I like your daughter…a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ smart girl. You’ll have to email me telling me all about your celebrations and important dates and what they mean and why we are celebrating. This way I won’t feel so ignorant. Tell your daughter I said hi *waves*

    Words can’t explain how devastated I am. I was all excited then I realised the date was the day before my brothers wedding in which I am a bridesmade in and is 5 hours away from Sydney ๐Ÿ™ I think I’m going to cry!

    Back to *squeeeee* with you all again. I’m loving the sound of The State Theatre – thanks for the info. Oh, this is going to be EPIC. I hope he has a wonderful time out there & gets to chill for a few days too. That would be perfect.

    *sigh* I’ll be living it through this site & all of you – good luck to all who plan to go to the city to at least sample the atmosphere. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Maria: Good luck for Monday, hope it all goes well. Thinking of you.xo

    hi ladies, what a wonderful Sat morning surprise to wake up to! I missed all the great news as couldn’t check in here yest ๐Ÿ™

    Was so happy until I remembered I have 2 beautiful angels & a hard-working hubby to look after so I can’t go on that road trip (or plane ride) of a lifetime. I will be there with you all in spirit, and enjoy the pretty pics after.

    ITA with comments peeps have made (including Belinda from an earlier post), the campaign should begin, to get Maria, Michelle, Vertigo & lise-lou, closer to Rob than all of us xxx
