Should we add "confirmed" then after those that have confirmed?

I can go on the list now, but not as confirmed quite yet.

Will be hard to say P'ter. As soon as I know more about Anne's schedule I'll post about it or tell you but it's a safe guess it'll be Saturday or Sunday and if you could manage to arrive Saturday morning you surely won't leave the same day? And if you then stay one night you might as well as late as possible on leave Sunday. In that case you are almost attending the whole convention

Editied...NowThinking MORE Possitive...
Due to our over burdened military government offices, and the 6 to 8 week delay in trying to obtain a 50year old birthcertificate.... we are having difficulties in getting all the paperwork needed to get on our plane fpr Copenhagen...
Note:
After a thoughtful pep-talk from a very dear and caring friend ...we have decided not to give up...and to continue to plan for our trip to Copenhagen
It might be touch and go...cut to the wire...and running for the plane...but we are determined to get there.

Sarah, Sorry for the scare... seems that we might have one last gimmer of a chance...so we are trying to hang on to that and think possitive now, that we are going to get there after all. Keep your fingers crossed for us....and anyone else thats having difficulities getting it all to work for them.
I would still very much like to buy a few of your Harper Marks...when you finally get them as good as you want them to be. Thank you for thinking of me.

Edited for a more Possitive thought...
Hans, Sorry my friend for the scare...now we once again have hopes of going. We recieved a letter stating that the papers we were needing MIGHT NOT ARRIVE IN TIME for us to be able to get our pass-ports in time.

I will continue to believe that the papers WILL ARRIVE IN TIME...as I promised a friend.
At least we did help Cheryl to get off the fence, and decide to go!!!
Cheryl, has very kindly repaid our push of her... with a fantastic pep-talk to keep us going now.{{{HUG}}}

We need a crying icon.
I'm really bummed for you and Martin, Lin.


Is there nothing to be done? Even if it's a wait of 8 weeks for the birth certificate, you can do an expedited passport application and have it in you hands within just one week.

Maw, Like Cheryl said...for us it is a bit more complicated as my husband was born overseas...fifty years ago...and not in a Military Hospital...none in the area at the time...drat!!! So we are having to wait until they can dig out his records and send them off to us...and right now they are a bit busy with all that our govenment is doing abroad...sigh!!!

We do have RENEWED HOPES that it WILLarrive in time...


P.S.Thank you once again Cheryl ...Martin says that your advice is a great idea, and might just save us the time we need to still be able to meet up with everyone in Copenhagen.
P.S.S.I really hope it works, as I have been packing and unpacking our suit cases...I need the practice...really I have a lot of things I want to take with me...and it has been really helping to keep me busy while I'm having to wait... it's much better than wearing out our carpets... pasing to and fro...and fro and too...

A colleague of mine is still using her maiden name at work despite being married for 5 years and now being pregnant. But last year when her mum arranged a family holiday she booked it for Cal in her married name. It was cheaper to get a new passport and driving license than to change the flight/holiday details


Luckily I still have 4 years to go on my passport and believe me its going to get some stick now I've got the travel bug again

My dear Lady M -

Please can you let me know if there is anything you would like us to bring you from Edinburgh?

I am convinced from my (dyed) grey hairs to my toenails that you WILL be there in Copenhagen! It just wouldn't be the same party without you, and Steven and I are so looking forward to meeting you -

Tell you what, my friends. Let us all send the appropriate vibe to those officials involved - every time they see/think of Maelin and Hubby's application, a sense of urgency should grip them and they should be convinced that time is of the essence. (They don't need to know WHY!)

After all, it can't hurt.

Thank you dear Lanen. ..for all the appropriate vibe sending...you can imagine how much we are hoping that someone in the government feels a true sence of ugency, and puts his papers in the mail.
Thank you for the lovely offer...but the only thing that I really want you to bring from Edinburgh...is your smiling self and Steven. Weeell... maybe a cramp free hand...so I can feel guilt free... when I try to entice you to sign my books to me


UPDATE!!!

I am not even contemplating the idea that we aren't going to get to Copenhagen...well not now...I don't dare as I promised Cheryl that I would not give up tying to get there.

I put MY passport application in today I had to expidete it, as the very nice lady behind the counter said the passports were backed up now for 12 weeks but by expideting it...I will hopefully get it in 4weeks...sigh!!!...
We have all the rest of Martins paperwork all ready to go as soon as his birth certificate gets here, and we will expidete it as well hopefully by then the time it takes to get it, will be eased up some and not take to long..or so the lady thinks.
So we are still in the race ...we might be bringing up the rear...but what else is new for me and MoM ...but better late than not at all We are also doing everything in the manner we would if we had our passports already... I am already starting to through things in our suit casese...so I can't get anymore possitive than that...but it has made me a bit nervous ... with all the excitement and antisapation. ... breath deaply, OOmmmm...

PLEASE!!! KEEP THOSE POSSITIVE "VIBES" GOING STONG...and we will see you there!!!

OH Edi, how I wish that you were also coming to Copenhagen...I have a little homemade paper book that has one of your short stories in it...and I would have ask you to sign it for me...perhaps someday!!!


P.S. I am sorry that your university is starting up early for you this year...but your studies are very important...so study hard...get good grades..and write more stories!!!

I'll write you a special one and make it into a book for you if you like!
I have the time at the moment!
I just need to find a theme.
I had an idea earlier but its too convoluted for a short

OH YES!!! Edi, I would love it... It is the ship story that you wrote that I made into a little book...I just love that one.
Maybe we will meet if we do get to go to England in 2009.

Sounds like a brilliant idea!
I don't know where I'll be though!
Maybe still in Aber, maybe elsewhere!
Depends who wants me!
I'm having so much fun this summer here, using equipment that works almost first time. (well it works first time but I'm tweaking it- the spectrometer will have a new part on Monday hopefully!) that I'd quite happily do stuff here, it depends on how annoyed I get next year!
