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.

Anyone up for a meet up in the Lakes? Summer holidays soon!

We met at Fell foot last year and I am feeling braver now and may even speak

roisin Mon 25-Jun-07 22:17:48

I'm up for it, but we do have a ridiculously busy summer ahead, so in practice it may not work out.

I think Littlelapin and Joolstoo and Wendyweber were planning to meet up when LL is there on holiday. But we may be away then.

The best week for us would be 30 July - 5 August.

chatee Mon 25-Jun-07 22:31:21

let me know the date and i'll check the dc's diaries......i'm just the taxibut would love to see you all again xx

roisin Mon 25-Jun-07 22:33:20

Hiya Chatee!
Which weeks are you away or around? Then we can co-ordinate preferences and arrange something suitable.

chatee Mon 25-Jun-07 22:38:23

dd fully booked the first week of the hols{is that w/c 23rd?}
possibly on holiday from 20/08 if dh gets around to renewing his passport

other than that just chilling out all summer in the lovely weather[fingers crossed}

I'm up in the Cartmel region for the last week of July and DH has generously offered to take himself off up a hill one day if I want to go to a meetup (he's so selfless )

roisin Tue 26-Jun-07 17:39:54

We are away that week LL, but I'm sure others will want to meet up.

We're at Glenridding 4-5 August. Meeting dh's hillwalking friends, so if I can run away and meet MNers it would make a pleasant change from talk of Wainwrights etc.

can i come?i will only have 3 dc for the first week in august,thats the only time im allowed to go anywhere

roisin Tue 26-Jun-07 20:46:11

Yes to everybody!
Any more for the skylark?

It sounds like a meeting early August might suit lots of people.

Please post ages of children here, so that we can come up with suitable venue suggestions:
Roisin dss 8 and 10

Wotznotreallyhere Tue 26-Jun-07 21:28:12

<<<sulks - not around then >>>

Ceebee74 Tue 26-Jun-07 21:35:11

I may be interested if it was South Lakes.

Mondays and Tuesdays are good for me

DS will be 1 in 3 weeks (can't you tell I am excited about his birthday )

MrsWho Wed 27-Jun-07 13:18:03

Most of us are south lakes ?

Diva if I could borrow my mams car you could come with us?

Thanks for bumping Rosin.

My kids are away 19-whatever the friday is
and we are busy the week before.The week before that dd1 is snorkeling 9-10 but that won't be much of a problem. (your lads aren't interested are they Roisin?)

MrsWho, dds aged 5 & 7

divastrop Wed 27-Jun-07 13:55:32

mrswho-thanks,that would be great,i will probably just bring ds2 and dd3(4 yr old and 4 month old).

roisin Wed 27-Jun-07 16:40:53

Oh thanks! I picked up a leaflet about snorkelling etc. on on Sunday, but haven't actually sat down and looked at it! You've reminded me to go and find it.

We are actually only 'around' with no plans for one week of the holiday
So it may not fit in!

DS2 is scared of heights and wanted to do climbing I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not?!

I like the idea of the kids-only swimming though. Is it Tues/thurs?

MrsWho Wed 27-Jun-07 21:57:40

Yeah dd1 will be going to the swimming but dd2 is 4 weeks too young! Same with the climbing as she wanted to do that too

roisin Thu 28-Jun-07 17:46:49

The other activities don't fit into our busy summer schedule! DS1 did snorkelling before, and loved it.
