Can I check who is bringing kids, also who wants lunch...

there are pre-school/infants level toys in the room, and lots of room for running around.

There is also a small seperate room if anyone needs 'chill out' space.

Please feel free to pm me if it is easier,

Just bumping as it seemed to go missing. X

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Thu 14-Feb-13 00:02:07

Just me, boys at school. I'll have space in the car for any ferrying required. I'll need clear directions, I don't have satnav.

zzzzz Thu 14-Feb-13 08:56:54

Still planning but children have gone bananas so firefighting rather than trip planning for a bit. We will cater for ourselves, (ie bring packed lunches) though ds1 will probably raid your rice given half a chance.

Will pm

NoHaudinMaWheest Thu 14-Feb-13 10:39:57

Just me. Poltegoose kindly giving me a lift. Lunch sounds yummy.

JJWMummy Thu 14-Feb-13 11:56:03

Me and DD1 age 2. We'll bring packed lunches ta, easier that way as she is ridiculously fussy.

Have two seats spare in the car if lifts are needed, also have high back booser seat for one of those if needed.

Still trying to figure out if it is possible. Will bring sandwiches if we come but I Ds will never shut up about the chilli if he spots it.

inappropriatelyemployed Thu 14-Feb-13 14:44:59

Oh I am jealous now. Was dying to meet you all. Will be having a Legotastic day for DS's birthday instead

PolterGoose Thu 14-Feb-13 14:48:35

Me, no ds, with NoHaudin.

Weird allergies and fussiness means I shall bring a packed lunch.

starlight I think, for you, anything is possible grin

NoHaudinMaWheest Thu 14-Feb-13 14:51:43

Sign seems most people are doing packed lunches so I would be happy to do that too.

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Thu 14-Feb-13 15:45:21

Well I was promised chilli! angry



No problem bring a sandwich, of course. wink

signandsmile Thu 14-Feb-13 15:53:19

Nah, im happy to cook, (it literally is chuck it in the slow cooker blush) anything not eaten I will freeze for us later... so no waste.

will bring tea and coffee, if anyone wants to bring cake feel free... wink grin

I will check post code for those satnaving, and if anyone needs a lift feel free to pm the lift offerers above, (or me direct). I will go onto the church website for directions from the motorway, will post at weekend.

(t turns out I have got ds's annual review at 9am that morning (They changed the date on me angry) so I will be able to either celebrate or 'grump' in company, grin)

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Thu 14-Feb-13 15:57:51

Sign, I'll be coming from Cheltenham, via Cirencester, not the motorway. I always seem to get lost in Swindon...

zzzzz Thu 14-Feb-13 16:24:56

Oh lord Signs Chilli sounds lovely, I didn't men to start a sandwich rebellion but 6 "maybes" is hell to cater for! I promise to focus at the weekend and sort myself out.

ellen if you get lost we will come and lead you (says the woman who gets lost with SATNAV) but just maps.google Swindon is a bugger

TaggieCampbellBlack Thu 14-Feb-13 16:33:18

Is the chilli meat or veggie?
I'll be on my own as the Ds wil be at school.

redhappy Thu 14-Feb-13 18:34:45

I'm still a maybe, wondering if anyone will be coming through my town by car, but don't want to out myself by saying where I live!

It's a small town, same county as Ellen

A lift from the train station would be brilliant if there are anyone has a spare seat?

redhappy Thu 14-Feb-13 18:38:06

Oh, and forgot to say, will be just me. Dcs on half term this week so they'll be back at school.

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Fri 15-Feb-13 12:07:16

Red, PMed you.

lougle Fri 15-Feb-13 12:50:48

Remind me where the meet up is? I think you're too far for me.

PolterGoose Fri 15-Feb-13 13:02:25

Swindon

It is about 2 hours for me each way, but am sure it will be worth the journey.

lougle Fri 15-Feb-13 13:10:05

I might have to skip. DD1 won't enjoy 2 hours in the car one bit and it's half-term here.

signandsmile Fri 15-Feb-13 18:29:47

oo would have loved to meet the famous lougle! (sign realises she is sounding a bit 'sad' blush just experiencing a bit of hero worship)

veggie chilli, (in case of nonmeat eaters, or dietary rules) will get my finger out and sort directions from M4 and A419 (best road from Ciren) also postcode for you sat nav ers.

Am now feeling grin grin at the thought of seeing you all.

lougle Fri 15-Feb-13 18:41:41

Haha! Nothing to worship here, I promise you!

lougle Fri 15-Feb-13 20:26:44

Well having spoken to DH, he and my parents have both urged me to come and meet you all grin so I may need those directions after all.

zzzzz Fri 15-Feb-13 23:46:16

Oh brilliant lougle, this is turning into a huge meet up! Well done sign for organising.
