I'm coming from Hampshire, will bring my 3 girls (I may look a little frazzled when I arrive), but have a 7 seater Galaxy, so could pick up 2 or 3 if anyone needs a lift in that direction.

lougle Sat 16-Feb-13 06:25:06

Oh and I might bring a back up for the girls, but I would love to try the chilli.

signandsmile Sat 16-Feb-13 08:54:25

Oh Bollocks

Have managed to get dd1 an emergency dental appointment (up half the night with toothache), but unfortunately it is when the meet up is on.

I am going to have to miss it. I am gutted!

PolterGoose Thu 21-Feb-13 12:37:09

hazeyjane sad

Perhaps you could PM one of us MNSNSWers where you are so we can work out who is nearby to arrange a mini-meet up?

lougle Thu 21-Feb-13 12:57:50

Doesn't seem too complicated for me. M4, off onto Great Western Way, straight over two roundabouts, then left after 2nd roundabout, right at third roundabout and 3rd right.

I'm awful with directions grin

lougle Thu 21-Feb-13 12:58:10

Hazey, sorry that tooth stops play sad

Good grief, I'm going to have to leave at 7:45am.....

lougle Thu 21-Feb-13 13:08:08

Wow, Star! If that map is correct, then I can leave at around 09.30
to get there for 11.00

I don't drive Lougle so it is train to central London, a bit of tubing it in rush hour with a buggy, then paddington to swindon!

That chilli better be good.......

lougle Thu 21-Feb-13 13:19:17

How are you getting from the train station to the church, Star?

PolterGoose Thu 21-Feb-13 13:21:01

After a shit morning surrounded by every assessment and report ever done on ds I am going to make a squidgy chocolate cake for tomorrow grin

zzzzz Thu 21-Feb-13 13:35:45

I've been doing laundry all morning in the hopes that we have enough lot he's to cover us by tomorrow blush

hazey sad

hazeyjane Thu 21-Feb-13 14:30:21

Aaagh, in a twist of cruelty, I have just had to get dd1 from school because she feels sick.....life is so CRUEL!!!!

Oh, and I had a little basket of chocolatey caring carrots that i was going to bring, and now i am going to have to eat them all myself....WAIL!!!!!!

TaggieCampbellBlack Thu 21-Feb-13 14:34:36

I have just burnt my shortbread. Humph.

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Thu 21-Feb-13 15:42:00

Looking forward to it! grin

Sorry you'll miss it, hazey. sad Are you far from Cheltenham?

lougle Thu 21-Feb-13 15:54:48

"Oh, and I had a little basket of chocolatey caring carrots that i was going to bring, and now i am going to have to eat them all myself." <----Now that sounds like a silver lining, right there.

zzzzz Thu 21-Feb-13 15:58:37

Sounds like someone doesn't want to share to me grin

hazeyjane Thu 21-Feb-13 16:01:45

<whistles innocently>

lougle Thu 21-Feb-13 16:07:28

Anyone else think those carrots are suddenly not sounding too caring? hmm
