    Ive been asked to babysit...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    A BMW M3...








    Well, actually. More than that of course, its a whole house and the car comes with it.

    This is tentative at this stage, as I am still figuring out logistics. But I do want to do it as I think I will be ready to leave home and have a break and do some things that totally are for me (selfish I know!). Up until now, Ive just tried to focus on others, as you can probably imagine.

    So, when is this going to happen, I hear you ask!?

    In July. Ill most likely be there for a couple of weeks. My friends are off overseas and would like their Sth Melbourne abode be habitated and the BM given a run or two! ;)

    I know it sounds like a long way off but as you can imagine, I have friends asking when and where I am going to be, so I thought I would let you all in on the loop as well.

    Im not only going to be in Melbourne. I will be actually travelling to Sydney first, about the 9th of July. I will most likely be there for about 10 days or so, TBC. If any Sydney or Melbourne CSrs would like to meet up, please post here and we can get something organised I am sure! I will have my own transport, so I am happy to meet up anywhere. Thats if you want to meet me at all of course! ;) :D

    Scoota.

    I wonder if we can get you behind the counter on the big yellow (nearly Duke yellow) LM at First Pour one Sat morning?

    ;)

    That would be fun!

    I would be in that, if it all works out. If it is a Saturday I would even ditch soccer for it if needed. I would be on college holidays than so will be nice and relaxed.

    Re: Ive been asked to babysit...

    Hi all, just thought Id give this a nudge!

    Actually, my plans are beginning to get set into concrete a bit more. And the only thing that will stop me now is if we get a flood. Which is a lot of rain between now and July! (which isnt too far off!)

    SO, were leaving on the 7th of July and will be in Sydney late arvo of that Saturday. I then head to Melbourne on the morning flight on the Monday 15th of July and will be in Melbourne until the 5th/6th of July (depending on when I book to fly back to Sydney) I will be in Sydney for another week but I think I will be around the south west (ie Picton way) and I dont think I will get up to the city area if at all that week.

    If youre in Sydney, I think well do well to get together the first week Im there. When Im in Melbourne, I dont mind when we meet up and I daresay Ill be happily visiting Veneziano and a few others as well.

    Though, Wushoes, I am sooo playing against you on the Wii !! So, youd better get your Crazy Cow racing skills up because Im pretty good at that game! :D ;D There, the challenge has been made! ;)

    Let me know if youre all still keen. Also tell me where youd like to meet up, Im happy to go practically anywhere as long as I can find it! (and I should be able to!) Looking forward to the visit too!

    Re: Ive been asked to babysit...

    Im in at Veneziano every saturday morning for my weekly bean shopping... "Come for the coffee, stay for the show" seems to be par for the course.
    Better polish up the RSV so it doesnt get out-blinged by the beamer :P

    Re: Ive been asked to babysit...

    In my modest opinion you should head down to Torquay in Victoria

    for some great fish and chips and a pretty decent coffee as well,

    I serve modified brown bay stuff!!!!

    its called

    Coastal Coffee 4 or above. ;)(still playing with our beans)

    Actually, I think that I would love a drive down to Torquay, Craig! What sort of time would it take from Sth Melbourne do you think?

    Hey your itinerary makes no sense! Fly to Melbourne on the 15th July....and stay till the 5th or 6th of July?

    Teach me how to time travel!! :o

    Yeppers. Thats about it. In about 6 hours too. So not bad when you consider our population is about 1500 people. I daresay that a city cafe is probably catering to a much larger crowd! ;D And dont you guys at least have several machines churning that sort of amount out? I know how much our little two grouper works in those six hours, couldnt imagine doing 15kg with only one machine and operator! :o Anyway, youll get the chance to show me how its done, Wushoes! ;)
