Right... Well that's me not going to Whitby then. Even if I could find accommodation (and it's blatantly not out there) I strongly suspect that's the week they need me to provide technical cover at Unity.

I shall be booking both leave & accommodation for next April, in December.

Ok, scratch that... Thanks to the uncannily lovely nisaba I now have accommodation. I'll figure out leave next week.

Erik found accomodation for him and Alix yesterday... just by ringing bucketloads of B&Bs. And I've just found out today that the person I'm supposed to be sharing a twin room with is 95% likely to not be going anymore (although I'm assuming you and Karen are sharing?).

Can you tell them you had holiday previously booked? I believe most companies understand that... maybe you can swap that week of support with someone elses...

Such was the assumption... it's only because she needs somewhere that I'm still looking. And she's on holiday at the moment, which doesn't make organising things any easier.

Leave could be tricky... I'm still on probation at that point, and I'll be half the technical staff, if I understand correctly.

I'll probably try again this afternoon - it's just vaery discouraging, and I have other things I need to do before I start work.

Okie, Erik actually found a double at the Queensland hotel, 01947 604262 £28.50 per person per night, yesterday, but he didn't take it as he wanted something cheaper.

He found the most useful place to look was here. Good luck :)

You rock. I may owe you a pub ;)

Booked that, so I hope I can get the leave, otherwise at least Karen's sorted ;)

*hugs* :)

Rar! I'm sure you ought to be able to get leave if you show you've got holiday booked (e.g. with hotel confirmation letter). You are certainly entitled to it, according to this...

Raaaa! Glad to be of service (*coughs* so to speak). Didn't think I'd get a whole pub out of it though... which one I wonder... :)

I don't think i can really face it this time. Kinda need to save my leave and cash too.
I really hope i can make it to the April one next year, prolly see if i can crash with Daevid and Jackie again (unless any other CamGoths want to share a cottage?)

Yay yay yay you are going! - i was just about to post a comment saying oh no! Whitby won't be as pretty this time but now it will so it's alright :) :D
Thank you nisaba!
