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 was scared the first time because I suspected everyone was hoping for some eight-foot dominatrix in thighboots, and got a chubby shortarse in a hippy-type pullover instead...

I have knee high boots I that helps...

Might try and work on DH doing the unbearable disco/prize-giving. He has never done it in 7 years, so it's his turn really...

If we leave it much later to book, you may all end up partying in my shed, sipping on Lidls Votka.

It's quite a spacious shed, mind you.

Give that Hully a poke, she put down some names who said they'd come on the other thread.
I think you're right cat ( missing the boots) give a deadline and book for 20/30.
Too much fannying around.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Mon 05-Nov-12 00:01:26

Like sheds.

cat Mon 05-Nov-12 10:21:50

I can't come sad

It's a good friend's gig on that date and I have got to go. <sob>

lolaflores Mon 05-Nov-12 10:55:20

I am unable due to a previous engagement with my surgeon and an unfeasibly long recovery time. i have wanted to go to a meet up for such a long time and now can't. bugger fuck shit.

GrandPoohBah Mon 05-Nov-12 11:13:03

I'm due to have a baby the day before the meet up, so I will either be a) hugely pregnant and incredibly grumpy because of it and the associated non drinking/smoking, or b) stuck to the sofa trying to bf and having lovely newborn cuddles or c) chomping down on the G&A in hospital swearing at DH under my breath.

So I won't be able to come. Boo.

cat Mon 05-Nov-12 13:35:12

Grand!! - come along.

If you aint popped, we can rub your back and do all the sympathy

If you're mid-pop, you'll have 30+ top birthing partners to hand

If you're post-pop, we can do pass the newborn all night and you can drink G & T

What could possibly go wrong??

SolidGoldYESBROKEMYSPACEBAR Mon 05-Nov-12 14:46:54

Grand: are you London'based and booked in for delivery in a London hospital? I remember wanting to go to a party on DS' due date and the midwife told me I could go if I felt well enough as long as I took my maternity notes with me. So I had a 'second' maternity bag with spare knickers and skirt for me, one babygrow and a couple of nappies, and the folder of notes, which I took everywhere for the last ten days or so of PG.

DS was a week late anyway.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Mon 05-Nov-12 18:38:53

Oh, sorry you can't come Bupcakes, I feel you would have added a certain je ne sais quoi to proceedings grin.
Next time maybe?

How's the venue search going cat?
As you say, this is only just over 3 weeks away!

Hesterton Mon 05-Nov-12 19:20:16

Add me to please. I finally found this thread. I'm on the fb group but add me to the list too please grin wine
