Hi, if any ChCh ladies are meeting for a coffee again I'd love to come. I'm new to this (day 6 of diet) and it would be great to meet you and get some tips =)

Hope some of you managed to stock up on 10c fizz! I totally want to try to give up coke zero come maintenance - or maybe I will do it for the month of January plus for a new years resolution (not that I am that kind of person).

Anyway, I have returned from the great land of Australia with 2 boxes of premiums - who wants to meet up and have a taste and see if they are all they are cracked up to be? Great bargain $1.25 per box - if I hadn't been so stingy I could have purchased a proper hardshell suitcase and a million dollar checked luggage bag for my flight home and filled it to the brim!

I did bring some hemestes stevia packets back too - after Caz introduced me to them - so you can try some of them too! I don't think you can get them here - but if you can, I have the package so we know what they look like.

So we should be catching up with Claireybell sometime post 4th Dec, but does anyone want to catch up before then? Apart from doing all the chores (seems the boy took a holiday while I was away too - how Rude, I totally expected both the front and back yard to be immaculately landscaped, the house spotless and the giant mortgage paid off - yet nothing! He did buy me some premium mince, and some yoghurt to help me out for my refeed meals though, so I must be grateful for that!) I should be wide open for a catch up somewhere public or at someones house where there might be bengal kitties to play with or similar..... as I said, I can supply premiums and stevia sweetner.

I also could host if you can handle an atrocious looking yard, a pretty, stupid, but unfriendly cat, and bad coffee - I just have moccona decaf instant stuff - not even a plunger or anything to make nicer coffee in, but I could do some moroccan mint or other herbal tea that should taste ok (especially if we sweeten it)....and everyone would be welcome to take some lemons from the lemon tree if you are keen to be consuming the lemon drink - I could even make some up in my Vitamix. Happy for that to happen, but please do not judge me on my messy house and yard, and snobby kitty. I am located in Bishopdale (pronouced "bishop-dahly", like "Meri-Vahly" as well, as it is soooo posh).

So come on Nicolac, Nutmeg, JulieD, Shrinkabelle, Spannah - and all you strong silent Christchurch Cohenites who have not yet commented on this thread - international Cohenites are also invited, if they won the lottery over the weekend !!!

What does anyone think - keen to catch up this weekend?

Hi Mcbell, Sounds great - not sure what a box of premium is but happy to try! Believe me I am an expert at messy yards and houses so zero judgement from me and not phased by unfriendly cats! It would be great to meet the ChCh 'decrease my waist brigade'. Would late afternoon Sunday work for anyone? I do need to double check if hubby is ok with the kids. He injured his shoulder windsurfing yesterday and may not be up for having them Sunday afternoon. If not we could meet one evening? I'm in St Martins and would also be happy to host at any point

Whoops - see the photographic evidence above Nicola - premiums = Nabisco Premium Original Crackers - from Australia, allowed on our plans - look like a salada, but taste better in my humble opinion.

Later on Sunday afternoon should suit me Nicola....shall we wait and see if there is any further interest, and if you are able to make it?

Otherwise we will definitely have to get together for Claireybell's arrival!

Sounds a plan. If no one else is free on Sunday will be good to all get together with claireybell. We emigrated to NZ (from the UK) in January so its always nice to meet new people and make new friends. Looking forward to sampling the premiums - must confess I thought it was a kind of drink!

I'm tied up on the weekend with Chrissy celebrations and a wedding but is anyone free a weekday evening? Say Monday the 9th or something? Could meet at coffee shop somewhere or someone's house. I should be able to get around borrowin my mum or in laws wheels

Yep Mondays are usually free for me so we can set a current tentative catch update for the 9th.

Who else can make it?
Any suggestions of a place to meet?

Papanui/Merivale/Northlands would be a good middle ground then

Great for me - I am in Bishopdale, so Casebrook is fairly close by - I can even stalk you and pick you up Claireybell if you are lacking transport.

there is a coffee culture on papanui road that is open late but very limited seats and not great parking on street

so lets try think of a better place.

Also i dont know why Shrinky fell off the forum and i dont think its right to harass her about it on facebook lol it feels wrong . Its like your boss emailing you on your private email address about work haha

Just like the saying "if you love something, set it free....yadda yadda yadda"

I am sure she will be back when she has the time and inclination! But I do miss her on here! Would be cool to catch up with her (and all others) when Claireybell is here, but of course, no pressure.

I am a bit useless about knowing good places to go - especially after working hours during the week - have I mentioned what a hermit I usually am?

The mall probably won't be open too late on a Monday night either.......

Hopefully someone will come up with a good idea (sorry I am a bit useless).

Oh McBell that's such a nice offer - ill call on you via pm closer to the time if I think ill need a lift. Hope that is ok!!

Yes shrinks is sooo welcome, no questions asked. I'd love to meet her after following her journey for so long! Understandably, no pressure tho

Trying to think of a location cos I totally agree about the parking sitch at coffee culture! But I'm stumped for Monday evenings ... How about the coffee house where you guys went last time? A bit more out of the way but would it be open? Alternatively what about the likes of No4 or Brigettes or JDV Merivale.... Not coffee shops as such but I'm sure they could do a coke zero or long black nonetheless??

I'm trying to think of other places. I'm not the best at knowing what's around since I've been in brissy 2 yrs now though!
