Sorry about that Lesley.

We've paid £43, not upfront and can cancel anytime.

It is going ahead. The conference room is booked and the deposit paid by Mel.

Breakfast is £6.95 extra each on top of the room.

Thanks Jan I'll try and book the £30 room next week so long as it's a definite, I'll risk it x

It's a definite. Helen has booked, we have. Tracey has and I believe Mr and Mrs Orange have. Missy80 is coming. Andy and Bev, Mel and I believe Mel N and Tina are coming. I think I have about 25 on the list at the moment.

ah not good Helen, will be the only party we go to as well as we're not the most sociable people! Hopefully I'll have lost weight and have a tan from my holiday still! Well one out the two ain't bad! x

It'll be good to see everyone again. I paid the extra as we won't know what we're doing until probably the week before.

We're having a Christmas party at work but I'm pretty sure I'm not going - as nice as everyone is there's no 'team' here any more and I can't be bothered.

Same here - I never go to my works Christmas do. Much as I like the people I work with it all seems to be geared round getting as drunk as you can, as quickly as you can and then being exceedingly ill in the gutter afterwards - not my scene!

Last year one of the girls tripped up, knocked one of the other girls over and she ended up in hospital having stitches in her chin - and they thought it was funny!

Same here Jan and I'm just not interested any more. I've never been that bothered by the Christmas party anyway.

To be honest I really like the people I work with, but I'm not too worried about socialising with them as well! Some of them go out socially, but thankfully they've stopped inviting me now!

Where I used to work I loved them, and used to organise them. Always an afternoon do and then those that wanted to go to the pub afterwards did so. We all had a good time without going stupid.

I've enjoyed it when we've gone for a meal straight from work, but actual parties don't bother me. We're such a small company we usually end up at one of those marquee parties with loads of people I don't know and cold, horrible food!

Last time I drove and I was looked at as though I was mad!

We used to do an afternoon meal/disco at a local hotel and it was great.

Nowadays they do a meal (which I couldn't eat all of anyway) followed by a pub that you have to pay to get into and it's miles away from where I live.

I'd rather save my money to be honest.
