Re: Basel Book Club

have gone out in sympathy with Pia and tucked myself into bed with flu....sent a message to Wahine and bluemoose suggesting you might want to cancel - but perhaps you still want to go aheady even if some of us are defecting???

Re: Basel Book Club

Sorry you are feeling ill too. It might be better to do another date when you're both better.

Re: Basel Book Club

I'm assuming it's cancelled tonight and we'll organise another date.

Re: Basel Book Club

Oh, what sorrow! Only now just got the message, but had the sneaking suspicion that I would remain all alone at the bar.. Look forward to the make-up date, and to all sickies -- get well soon!
