Melbourne bloggers picnic this weekend

Ampersand Duck is in town with BB abd Bumblebee in tow, and so we're going to have a lovely picnic sans fur-fringed hooded bomber jackets & yellow-framed plastic sunglasses, and nowhere near Narre Warren. Anyone in Melbourne who's reading this is invited, and children are particularly welcome.


when: Saturday, February 2, 2008 12:30pm - 4:00pm
where: Royal Botanic Gardens, near the Children's Garden, which is near O Gate.

Can't be more specific about the in-garden location as it hasn't been definitively scouted yet; if you're worried about finding us feel free to email me and I'll give you the phone number of this mobile phone I have. I will also bring the very visible beach umbrella pictured in this post.

PS - I might be a bit late to the rendezvous but I think Ms Duck will get there on time.

It won't be the same without the chook and the cat though. Have a great time!

Yay! Am sitting beside the Mersey River (the Devenport version) wasting time before our boat takes us to Melb, trying to type coherently using BB's miniature Slaveberry keybort.
We are indeed the 'on time' types, and I guess we'll go directly to the children's bit -- I'm the female Elvis Costello with thick black glasses frames, and BB will be in a daggy floppy grotty white canvas hat.
I'm sure intelligent blog-types will be able to find each other...

But, but I'm moving this weekend, and I don't think the friends I have enlisted will be too pleased if I swan off to the gardens to meet the internet. Bummer.

Also, I didn't realise Dorian was a smirking blonde. Did his domain expire?

I would so love to be there, but it's my dad's 81st birthday tomorrow so there is dinner and cake (made by moi -- choc sour-cream fudge, cooling on racks in the kitchen as we speak) and so on in the evening. Otherwise I would have driven over.

Please post many photos.

I'll bring the camera.

Jac - pity! Dorian is a blonde. I couldn't comment on the smirking issue. Yes, he let his domain expire. Apparently mashups are dead.

Alas - I can't make it tomorrow either.
I would have loved to have met the umbrella in RL.
Have a great time.

I'll be there: trailing homemade apple and cinnamon loaf in my wake....
