When organising a Mumsnet meet up you should take the same basic precautions you would when meeting anyone from the internet - make sure you meet in a public place and that others know where you are going. You can also meet up with other mums on your Mumsnet Local page. Find your Local page here.

I'm sporting a massive bump on my head. I was trying to help baby up and fell flat on my head. CCTV ops must've a field day with us.

someone emptied a mojito in my handbag too. baby I'm sorry I can't remember what I done with the hat once you had stoped being sick....

anyways it was a blast and great to meet you all x

SolidGoldYESBROKEMYSPACEBAR Mon 03-Dec-12 09:33:49

Oh dear oh dear. Hope you are not feeling too bad EveryDudeKnows. My bruises have come out nicely today.

BBB, married, SirBoobs - my uncle and cousins live in Three Bridges / Crawley - shall I ask them for suggestions? DCousin has good taste AFAIK so she might have some good ideas.

icclebabyjesusheave Mon 03-Dec-12 12:32:23

EveryDude, seriously, don't fret about the hat. It could have been so much worse. Sorry about your head!

My purse has been found, but only after I've cancelled all my cards and written off for a new drivers license.

It was found in the bin in the loos (sans money but with everything else) so it looks like someone just swiped it out of the top of my bag.

(my bag was poorly-guarded, to be fair)

The annoying thing is that it was found by the Sunday-morning cleaners, who put it in the "safe place". So safe that when I went in on Sunday the person on duty couldn't find it!

But at least I will get the actual purse back.

Hi Hearts, I think the main point was everyone seems to love/wants to come to Brighton.
Can't believe you all want to start thinking about another one so soon.
Haven't you all got stockings to knit or nuts to thread or something grin

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Mon 03-Dec-12 16:47:52

Oh how bloody annoying Trills, all that hassle grrrr!
Good to get it back though I s'pose.

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Mon 03-Dec-12 16:57:30

I would have had a much nicer Sunday if I had gone in and said "do you have my purse?" and they'd said "yes here it is, it was in the bin, how odd, no money but at least you have all your cards and drivers license and stuff".

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Mon 03-Dec-12 17:16:06

Well, quite.
I know they won't reinstate cards but you should be able to cancel the license request and so save the fee? More hassle I know.

Oh Trills what a honking huge pain in the arse. But as you say at least you have the purse.

BBB, I would much rather do Brighton! The raging metropolis of Crawley, West Sussex does not have quite the same... reputation.

And funny you should say that about knitting stockings and stringing cranberries or whatever. I actually spent the late afternoon today pushing pins with sequins on into styrofoam balls with the DDs. And we put up the tree yesterday with me not at all hungover, oh no wink

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Tue 04-Dec-12 08:09:04

It was only £20 to get a new drivers license (you can do it all online, not difficult at all) and I did need to change the address on it anyway after we moved this summer.

SolidGoldYESBROKEMYSPACEBAR Tue 04-Dec-12 12:17:31

Oh Trills, what a bummer. Still, at least you're sorted now.

I'd be up for a Brighton do at some point. I'm in Croydon so it's not too far. Mind you, Croydon has plenty of nice places to go to as well....

Though I will not be having any tequila. Definitely not.

Oh and Hully: any better today? Only DS has just come down with horrible honking snotty cold and I am trying to work out how long it's likely to last...

<cough>

Pagwatch Wed 05-Dec-12 08:03:19

Oh you poor lovelies. I hope you feel much better soon.

HullyEastergully Wed 05-Dec-12 08:31:47

I have ridiculous sneezing now, ten at a time. Most odd.

Pagwatch Wed 05-Dec-12 08:41:39

Is it your brains trying to get out?

HullyEastergully Wed 05-Dec-12 09:24:59

They left a long time ago.

It's funny how irritating people find sneezing. I have been GLARED at, like I purposefully sneezed maniacally to annoy them.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Wed 05-Dec-12 09:27:41

Sneezing maniacally? Does that go "atchoo - mwah-ha-ha"?

HullyEastergully Wed 05-Dec-12 09:35:50

It goes atchoo-atchoo-atchoo-atchoo-atchoo-atchoo-ATCHOOOOO-sorry, so sorry- atcHOO-all right, gawd I'm not doing it on-atCHOOOOO-purpose
