It was an awesome day. Thank you all!

In particular to Anna, for lending me a towel to get changed behind after swimming.

Awww, you all beat me to it!

Was indeed a brilliant meet - one of the nicest I think I've ever been to.

I have to admit, after the furore of recent weeks, I was seriously wondering whether or not to come, right up until the last minute. I'm really really glad I did. Thank you to all of you who made me feel welcome, who I had a lovely time chatting to, and who just made me feel like I do have real friends here. You're all wonderful people.

Glad you enjoyed it

I know that I didn't go to the meet but I was personally invested

Thank you to everyone who came. Thank you to everyone who say the chaos of last year, the lack of organisation and Joinees generally being in a 'bad place', and didn't write this one off.

Thank you to Becky for being my Brighton face for the Saturday

Donna - In the same way that the forum ISN'T Join Me, the forum ISN'T ever going to be a medium for how I judge friendships. I know I wasn't at the meet much and we didn't speak much but let me say (And I'm sure it goes for a lot of the forum) - the bickering and arguing and discussing on here is going to have to be pretty epic before it affecrts how I think about people I know. We can argue an disagree about everything online but still have the loveliest time armed with booze and waltzers and shakeaways

Cracking second half to the meet. The first half sounds equally super, but the evening that I was there for; the pizza, all the red smiley faces, knitting, kareoke, dancing, pornography & milk. It was wonderful. Then a jolly nice day today, good breakfast, good wander, good cricket, bad jokes, phenomenal waltzers & then the unexpectedly excellent Kung Fu Panda. It was bloody nice to see absolutely every single one of you at that meet, including those who we saw oh so briefly as we flew past each other on our ways in & out of Brighton.

Top banana.

Thank you to everyone involved. I had a fab time and am really glad I came. It was lovely to meet you all :) I'm sad that we were leaving just as Elliot arrived, and that I therefore missed his pornography and milk...

When's the next meet?  ^_^

Thanks to everyone for being ace!!

....particular thanks to Tim and Becky for doing an excellent job with preparing the RAoK challenges and the like.

Thanks to people for being kind and not laughing too much at me for my permanent weekend hangover.  

I was in spaced-out mode for 88.45% (it's an exact science) of the meet and as a result was not as talkative as i may have been, so apologies if you felt i was being aloof towards you, it wasn't intentional....was just happy to sit back and listen to the fabulous conversations.

oh, and finally....thanks to the karaoke kings of the club for keeping me fabulously entertained ^_^

Thank you to:

Neil for facilitating our presence at all!
Holly and Claire and Tim for an AWESOME friday afternoon!
All who put massive effort into organising what was an incredibly chilled, incredibly civilised, and incredibly happy day.
Tim's Dad for allowing us to sleep in his flat, have a view of the pier as soon as I stumbled into the living room, and being even more obsessed with Cornishware than I am.
Biddle for buying milk (with his porn) as a UHT cup of tea on Sunday morning would have made me quite ill.
Mum White and Dave for providing wool and needles so I could join in the knitting (I'll return them when I'm done!)
Kate and Tim for making an effort to come and say hi (and thus creating a monster in the dual knowledge of myself and Tim in the field of musical theatre)
Everyone who came to say hi at Chandos!

Just everyone who made this a fantastically fun weekend.
The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is to high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

Never look down on someone unless you're helping them up.

:D :D :D   Andy and I only got home this afternoon, after a fabulous weekend!

Biggest thanks to Becky and Tim for the organisation (with possibly some support from Kieran, too).

Thanks to everyone who turned up, and made it all so much fun.

To all the knitters, however reluctant. I think everyone had a go!

To my RAOK challenge team for being awesome, especially Anna who was so brazen that she even got us invited up to the surfer boys' flat!

The last thanks go to Kieran and Beck for staying out for dinner last night and creating a perfect end to a brilliant weekend. Mum White xx
There are no strangers here, only friends we haven't met yet.

And everyone at the pub after - you guys are wickeeeeeeeeed!

Becky is a little bit busy moving house right now, but has asked me to come on here and thank you all.

So, she, and indeed I, thank you all.

For coming. And stuff like that.
