Party! Final instructions [Jun. 15th, 2010|09:45 pm]
Douglas Spencer
[Current Location |51.4101,-0.7623]

Remember this party invitation?

Well, it's this Saturday, and it's time for final instructions!

Arrive any time from mid-afternoon onwards. Bring something to barbecue and something to drink, but be prepared to eat/drink someone else's if someone else eats/drinks yours. We're providing salads, sauces, starches, chocolate fountain, cheese, desserts and so on -- but we're relying on people bringing meat and booze. The theme of the party is "crap superheroes" -- so make an outfit and practice your catchphrase, if you're so minded.

Click on the "location" field to find the house, or put "51.4101,-0.7623" into your device-of-choice.

When you come into Fountains Garth take the first left and find somewhere to park. Walk into the square and head for the right-hand corner and look for the front door bearing a blue bird worked in stained glass, number 51.

If you're staying in the very-local hotel http://www.premierinn.com/en "Bracknell (Twin Bridges)" and you need walking instructions, then comment here. If you're in one of the other Bracknell hotels then you may prefer a cab. The station (between Reading and London Waterloo) is about 12-15 minutes walk for a fit person.

There's still some limited provision for crash space, if you're hardy and/or patient.

Money and time are both tight this weekend, and I'm afraid I don't think I'm going to make it after all either. But I hope everything goes wonderfully, and will see you soon :-)

Much as I'd love to, I have my children with me this weekend, I'm afraid. (Actually, they're all disappearing for large chunks of it to do other things, but not sufficiently coherently for me to go anywhere.)

Oh poot!! I'm hoping very much to be moving out over this weekend (long story, might even update everyone some time - needless to be said I'll be in Loughborough which is in the wrong direction to you! How poorly planned was that!!)

However if the move isn't happening I shall leap into my little tank and come over baring dead animal and drinkie poos. Even if the move is happening I'll try my best.(As an aside so everyone can make sure their dresses wont clash with mine, is yours a crutch or wheelchair kind of place?)

Regardless of all of the above I will insist that I get to see you all very soon!!

Love of lots,
Me x

It's about 30 yards from where you park to the front door, and there's one step and a frame-to-get-over at the front door. Once you're in everything on the ground floor is on one level with no steps, except the conservatory which has patio-door-frame about two inches high. The doors are all standard widths so watch your knuckles. If you're up to crutches then you should be fine.

Tank girl is NOT a "crap superhero"

I'm intending to head there from the BSFA AGM (via Finsbury Park to get the Car), heading back late Saturday night, if anyone wants a lift.
