Just been talking to a few MNers today about a meetup (you know who you are!). Would anyone fancy a few drinks and a meal one night in Cheltenham, and afterwards dancing round our handbags in the Prom Club?

(I am joking about the Prom Club grin)

So shall we start a list of who's coming Friday?

Me
Getorf
Patthehammer
Foxache
Happiertimes (yes please come, all welcome)

If we can agree a venue and have an idea of numbers we can reserve a table

GreenShadow Mon 01-Apr-13 17:02:01

Sorry, can't make this week - DS is in a play in Stroud and I helping out this Friday. I will try and make the next one though.

HappierTimes Mon 01-Apr-13 21:06:28

What sort of time? Any advice on parking. I dont know Cheltenham very well. I am actually going tomorrow for my 3rd time.

DollyTwat Mon 01-Apr-13 23:08:50

Well if we go to the Tivoli there's parking outside I think, or nearby

Shall we agree the Tivoli? Shall I reserve a table for 7?

foxache Tue 02-Apr-13 00:42:28

Yes, thanks Dolly, I've not been there before so it'll be nice. I really won't be eating though, does anyone mind?

HappierTimes Tue 02-Apr-13 09:29:15

PatTheHammer Tue 02-Apr-13 21:11:49

I can't decide whether to stay at my Inlaws or not. If I do I feel the rest of Saturday may be a right off .........

foxache Tue 02-Apr-13 22:10:25

Thanks for booking Dolly, I promise not to take too many secret sandwiches and show you all up.
It'd be nice if you didn't have to drive Pat smile

HappierTimes Fri 05-Apr-13 00:07:10

DollyTwat Fri 05-Apr-13 00:13:10

#Wand erection

PatTheHammer Fri 05-Apr-13 17:02:32

Dd has been ill as well, not sickness but a virus with high temp. She seems better today but I'm not going to stay out at in laws so afraid I'll be driving again hmm still coming though!

HappierTimes Fri 05-Apr-13 17:30:19

Not going to be able to come. We saw every hour in over night and I am now getting some strange rumblings going on. confused

DollyTwat Sat 06-Apr-13 00:13:42

Good night to tonight, to those who remembered (cough cough)

We did end up at the Beehive too
Next one in may then ladies?

Ledkr Sat 06-Apr-13 07:38:27

Who didn't come dolly? Was it that getorf again?
Not seen her on here for ages

DollyTwat Sat 06-Apr-13 08:39:37

She forgot ledkr! Must be her age grin

How was wand erection?

The Beehive was very busy and loud but ok, Tivoli was nice too. The food is very nice, bit pricey but huge portions. Wine was £18 so a bit steep!

Did we agree the date for the next one? I guess we could try somewhere different each time?

Ledkr Sat 06-Apr-13 10:01:03

Aw they were good and Ella was so chuffed I'm glad we came.

Yes let's do another. Ill check calendar when we get back.

Let's go somewhere where a bottle of wine is reasonable or we could do a byo curry and well... Byo!

BooMum123 Sun 07-Apr-13 22:22:03

Hello - (Dolly, I have a different nickname but I'm the same person...)

Just wanted to pop along and introduce myself, I'm the new local editor for the Cheltenham and Gloucester Mumsnet Local site (here: local.mumsnet.com/cheltenham-gloucester)

To be honest, you seem to be managing perfectly well - but I am here if you need anything and at the moment working to get local talk moving, lots of good listings and (v importantly) reviews.

Anyway, I'm here and the local site is there for you to use.

Hope you all had a lovely time on Friday and a nice weekend. I was a bit confused by being able to leave my gloves at home to be honest...

GreenShadow Mon 08-Apr-13 12:49:31

Congratulations BooMum123. I'm glad someone has taken on this roles.

I keep popping over to both the Chelt and Glos one and the general Gloucestershire site, hoping that it will spring to life and get some local dialogue going. Trouble is, everyone else is like me, and waiting for someone else to start things off.

Maybe part of the problem is that it is OK if you live in Chelt or Glos themselves, but if you live outside the larger towns then 'Gloucestershire' is such a wide area that those of us in the south have little in common with those in Twekesbury or its surrounds.

BooMum123 Mon 08-Apr-13 13:34:20

Hello GreenShadow - and thanks!

I def know what you mean about the Gloucestershire site and I'll have a look into it. At the moment I'm just looking after Mumsnet Local Chelt and Glos, so will aim to work out a way for the 2 sites to link properly first and then carry on from there.

Hopefully once both sites are busier, there'll be lots there for everyone (good plan...) - but leave it with me.

GreenShadow Mon 08-Apr-13 22:19:21

Brilliant Boo.
I've seen so many mums who have just moved to the area post on various Glos threads in the past and so few people reply - would be great if there was more support here.
