Alone this Christmas, looking to meet interesting people?

Last year I put out this message and had the pleasure of hosting 5 very interesting people for an amazing experience.
So I'm willing to do it again! Get in touch if you think you have something to bring to the party.

Snoopy and I would like to invite 5 interesting CS'ers, to our home for a CS festive experience. We live in a 200 year old converted stone barn in a charming small country village only 100Km from London. Arrive on or before Christmas eve and join us for a village 'at home' drinks n mix soirée, hosted by us for friends in the village. Choice of 2 local pubs for drinks and then maybe onto the church for midnight carols. Christmas day and Boxing day can be what we want but the main focus will be on good food, drink, swapping of stories and exploring the local area with Snoppy. Stay 2 or 3 nights, leaving with new life long friends and another amazing CS experience to talk about.

Read my profile, see if we would gel and if you would like to join us send me a "Couch Request". I'm looking to gather a mixed group of interesting people from different cultures each with something to offer the group, for a party with a difference. Tell me why you think you should be invited and what you can bring to the party!
I've hosted magicians, chefs, musicians and even a girl with a moustache! So I know there are some amazing people out there, I hope some of you would like to spend Christmas with us.

If this is not for you, fine. Thanks for reading, but maybe a friend fits the bill, pass the message on, make someone happy!

Christmas greetings to all the CS family.

Steve & Snoopy.

Hi Steve

I responded to your message last year, that I was sad we already booked something for that period.

The same this year : Pol and I recently booked return flights to the heel of Italy the last week of December.

If we only would have known earlier.... :-(

Hopefully next year? :-)

Hello Steve,
I might like to come. I probably wrote last year saying that I could bring many games and pink gin. And a sleeping bag.

I once had 3 CS members, my younger daughter and her new kitten for Christmas and we all had a great time. That daughter lives in Milton Keynes and now has a delightful fun loving daughter of 2 1/2.

I could see some of both of you.

Be well and enjoy,

Val in Welwyn Garden City.

sent you a PM. Not sure if I can run away from home but still without electricity and heat. This offer sounds wonderful and incredibly kind.

What a *wonderful* idea. I wish the commute from North Carolina were a bit shorter!
