Righto, we're at that time of the year again where a Christmas Piss Up in London Town is needed. I propose a date a few weeks before so as many as possible can join in - how about Saturday 23rd November.

This has only been mooted last night, so I've not even got a venue as yet, but I have some ideas. I will, of course and usual, try to make it an easily get-to-able-near-a-traveldodgy place so that those that come into London can take advantage of cheapy rooms in advance.

So...please can y'all start putting names down so I have an idea of numbers initially and I'll get cracking with a venue in the next week or so. Further down the line I'll put the usual FB Group together (for those who are both on FB and happy to join) - I won't be posting the venue on MN as I'd prefer the hairy of hand not to know. Those not on FB I'll chat via PM near the time.

They are building a new travel dodgy in E17!

<spends the rest of the day roaring at the idea of a load of MNers emerging, blinking in confusion, out of the tube at Walthamstow Central>

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 27-Sep-13 12:58:16

Arf at MN convention in Walfamstow. I'll be expecting you darlin'

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 27-Sep-13 13:01:29

Oooh I want to come but can't do that date sad

<expects world to revolve around her>

I still have my badge from 2 years ago!

MrsD there's a lovely travel lodge right near where I live.

Beautiful view of Asda on one side and no car parking unless you spend £10 in Asda and only want to stay in the car park for 2 hours, it's great.

I think everyone should stay there and enjoy the delightful ness of Edmonton grin

Anyway, stick my name on the list. But..I have to go on a course in November, I haven't had the date confirmed.

Hopefully it will not be on the actual day of the meet up sad

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 27-Sep-13 13:04:43

SayCool that's not on. Especially as I was your personal chauffeur at that one. <tuts>

Tantrums I was convinced you were talking about Clapham Junction for a moment - but our Dodgy not only has an Asda view, but a Lidl AND a steady rumble of trains 24 hours a day. Bet you're well jell of that.

MrsDeVere Fri 27-Sep-13 13:05:11

Ahhh yes, the Edmonton Travel Dodgy....
The exotic sounds of the A406, the heady mix of car fumes and the bins out the back of Asda...

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 27-Sep-13 13:05:38

Oh Hepsibar stop name changing, tis tres confusing!! grin I didn't know that was you. <sigh>

Oooh, yes please! I'd like to come!

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 27-Sep-13 13:08:16

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 27-Sep-13 13:08:56

Everyone does grin

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 27-Sep-13 13:09:57

So, er.... About the date then..... grin

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 27-Sep-13 13:12:20

CoolioWhippio it's possible that we can go either side... I shall go with the throng. As you were.

Soooooo - let's say 16/11, 23/11 or 30/11 and the majority will have it.

My vote is the 23rd or the 30th.

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 27-Sep-13 13:27:21

Aw Heps, there's a voddy in it for ya! I vote 30th.

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 27-Sep-13 13:28:13

Sooooo read that as 'go with the thong'.

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 27-Sep-13 13:35:44

You would read it like that you dirty cah..

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 27-Sep-13 13:37:03

grin

Maybe along with the Mumsnet Scarf and the Mumsnet haircut there should be a Mumsnet thong?

There's a mumsnet haircut?! do share please...

hullygully Fri 27-Sep-13 14:05:43

Can't do Nov 23rd {sad vadge}

hullygully Fri 27-Sep-13 14:09:01

Oh Mintyys was old and I think she gave up.

HepsibarCrinkletoes Fri 27-Sep-13 14:13:01

So if it's the 30th can you grace us Hulls?
