Found 24th Jul 2008
Right, just been on to my local radio station to win a holiday, thety were asking questions about Ibiza, I know quite a lot about the place and thought I would try it for a laugh.
Anyway, long story short I think I have won, they wont tell anyone till tomorrow, so cnt be sure, that's not the problem though, the problem is that the holiday is between the 8th and 11th of August, which happens to coincide with my girlfriends birthday party on the Saturday (not her actual birthday though).
To make things worse, I am already booked to go on oliday from the 29th July to 6th August anyway, lol.
Now, if I invite her she will want to go, but also wont want to move her party at reasonably short notice, on the other hand if I don't invite her and don't go to the party I think we all know what is going to happen.
Any idea's?

form an orderly queue:roll:

Ask her, that way you're covering yourself so if she doesn't want to move the party then you can still go ;D

well i think you know the score, which is more important, although im sure you could say the same to her - lol

Lol I had a similar problem recently.. go to my girlfriends birthday party or go to Latitude festival and see the Mars Volta and Sigur Ros. Ended up going to the party. Easy come, easy go.. Just let someone else from the competition have the prize.

Shame I didnt know, could have done with the Latitude tickets, it is just up the road from me, I even thought about trying to jump the fence, rofl.
Have thought about letting someone else have the priize, all of the contestants get a night out in Suffolk from the station anyway VIP etc, but I may not have even won the thing yet, but I am VERY confident I have, lol
I did live there for 4 summers after all, my knowledge of the island is quite formiddable, lol.
I have spoken to her over MSN just now, she is on the way over, wanted to talk about it here not on 'tinternet so it is looking bad,

#If you've won a holiday there is no way she'll expect you to go to her party instead. Her party is far enough off, people will understand if she postpones it, it's not like it's this weekend or anything. Enjoy Ibiza!

is her party like a proper party, venue, food, disco etc,etc, or just like a big night out?

And sorry if I'm sounding old here, but how old are these girlfriends, it's not as if they're 7 and their hearts will break if they don't have a party, right?

Go and take the holiday

MikeBeaver,

Oh, that will test the relationship out big time - she could be pretty upset and at her most vulnerable when you're away - so it's your call, could you handle the thought of her being on someone else's shoulder that night ? :w00t:

Rendlesham mate :p, 'bout half hour from you if I drive like I do normally, lol.

Am pretty sure she is just having friends over to the house for a while then going to town for the night out, they are going to Pals club (if you can call it thet) afterwards, I hate that place!!!
To think I could be at a MOS night in Ibiza or at Pals, I wonder, lol.

I would be happy to bet £50 on the fact I think I am good enough to have won it, Baconsandwich can even find out at the same time as I do if he listens to Kiss tomorrow afternoon around 16:00- 16:30 time
by the way, loving the Avatar of Ichigo

That's exactly what I thought, but she seems to not be to keen on the idea, but Meh....we shall see what she says in a little while when she gets here.

Mike..

Don't worry, she was on her way over to can you and you just made it easier. Enjoy your holibobs!!

I definitely agree with Sassie on this. If it was her twenty first with all sorts booked, it might be problem but a night out versus a free holiday. It's a no-brainer in my opinion. Surely she's just coming over to sort out the details!!:thumbsup:

OMG just tell her everything and make sure you twist her arm to postpone the party... say it will be a nice romantic thing.. sweet talk her into it....

Come on you can do it :P

Well a little update is in order I think

Seems like the holiday is actually for a whole week, not just the weekend that I originally thought it was for, so that rules me out of going as I cant have that much time off work.
To top it all off the GF now has to go to Peterborough and get her Passport renewed and find a friend to take along with her, and all of this need's to really be sorted out before tomorrow night when I fly out for my original, pre-planned ho9liday, oh the pain in the backside things that happen, lol.
if all else fails I will give the holiday to my mate, think him and his flat mate would enjoy it if we cant go.

Mike,

What's the name of the local radio station - seen a similar comp here

totalkiss.com/Cha…461

and the prize is for 4 persons, 1k spending money and six nights!!!!!!!!

If that's yours - you'd be mad to let it go.
