Ok, after much scouting for suitable resonably priced London venues (thank you once again Messmonster for your tireless research, we have secured a venue near Liverpool Street for Saturday, February 23rd, 2013.

Email me on gweithred@talktalk.net and I will send you the full details.

I need at least 15 delegates to make this financially viable for me.
At least 25 people had indicated a stornig interest in attending an event in London when Messmonster posted up an online survey.

Looking forward to hearing from you all smile

Awoman, MNers asked me to do it and as I am always keen for us to pool resources and share best practice I put it together. smile

I don't think handouts mean much without a face to face discussion but I am sure one of the attendees will be happy to share them with you.

moondog Tue 05-Feb-13 18:03:59

And yes, Star, that will be covered in detail.

Will you be doing any in the North?

moondog Wed 06-Feb-13 16:28:28

I did one in Birmingham last spring and will do one anywhere-as long as there is sufficient demand! smile

coff33pot Wed 06-Feb-13 19:40:29

SOME of you please move to bloody Cornwall!!! grin

I hope all goes well Moondog smile

moondog Wed 06-Feb-13 22:21:19

Thanks Coff!

You are indeed right about the face to face thing...

Having been on lots of various courses/training etc run by LA, which frankly I could have run better myself, I was presuming that handouts from a course run by someone who actually knows what they are talking about would be better than nothing.

moondog Thu 07-Feb-13 16:54:47

Oh dear!
Sounds like a lot of the courses I have been on.
My pet hate is courses to 'raise awareness'
I fight the urge to stand up and bellow 'We're all bloody aware thanks. Now we want some concrete action!'

It's impossible to 'raise awareness' without generalising I have experienced.

These courses are all full of 'they like this, they do this, they can't do this, they hate this..........'

pisses me off......

Aargh. Properly gutted now sad. DH off to the other side of the country for some unnecessary hobby-related event angry and no-one else to leave dc with.

MerryCouthyMows Sun 10-Feb-13 01:18:36

Interested. Will try to figure out childcare, think DS2 & DS3 can go to their dad's as it's a fortnight away. Maybe I can find someone to have DD & DS1...

<<Crosses fingers>>

MerryCouthyMows Sun 10-Feb-13 01:19:25

Will email in the morning.

I've just realised today that I haven't yet sent my form and cheque back to Moondog for the 23rd blush blush. I WILL do it tomorrow.

Made me wonder, I've not seen many confirmations on here, who else has signed up/is going to?

messmonster Tue 12-Feb-13 21:43:57

Looks like I'm going to have Moondog and her colleague all to myself then confused smile

Anyone else? Anyone....?

I'm just trying to figure out how many from my party. At least one but trying to get childcare is tricky for my DH to accompany.

Although, someone on another thread said they were scared of meeting me confused and so didn't want to confirm here in case I put them off.

moondog Tue 12-Feb-13 21:54:28

Can I reassure you all that Starlight is a very lovely person?
grin

messmonster Tue 12-Feb-13 22:56:38

Ooh good smile

Can I also say that I met Star at the last event in Birmingham and she's not at all scary grin

Bluebirdonmyshoulder Tue 12-Feb-13 23:30:29

I'll be there! Have paid and everyfink!

blush Dunno about lovely, but I'm definitely DEFINATELY NOT scary.

messmonster Wed 13-Feb-13 11:48:39

Yay! So glad you're coming Bluebird. Hope Bluechick is doing well after your hospital stay.

Moondog my cheque's in the post! No, really it is smile
