Hello.

Are you in or near Birmingham? Fancy making your own perfume at a Flash-Febreze event on Tuesday 23 March between 12.30 and 2.45pm?

We already have some MNers signed up for this event but we still have a few more places to fill.

The event will take place in a boutique hotel in the Jewelery Quarter of the city. Children are welcome and a light lunch will be served.

You will be able to make and take home your own perfume, as well as learn about smell from a fragrance expert.

Travel expenses will be paid (up to £30) and you will receive a goodie bag containing domestic cleaning products and other goodies worth about £50.

All we ask is that, after the event, you try the cleaning products in the bag and report back on them on Mumsnet!

If you'd like to come along, please enter your details. If you are selected, we will be in touch ASAP!

I will follow my nose. It usually works for me. I might head in early and window shop.

llareggub Thu 18-Mar-10 22:40:52

Must we wear Boden? wink

RuthBlackett Thu 18-Mar-10 22:42:29

Hotel du Vin is just off Colmore row... not exactly in the Jewellery quarter! (tis v boutiquey though)

bottyspottum- c'mon admit it... you're one of the emos aren't you? wink

bottyspottum Thu 18-Mar-10 22:51:38

lol @ emo

i propose we meet en masse at the cathedral on colmore and make our way to the hotel together

i will be arriving with my sister so there will be two of us. she will have a wee baby and im quite fat

you should be able to identfy us

llareggub Thu 18-Mar-10 22:54:18

I have no idea where the Cathedral or Colmore road is!

I will be skipping along as I am leaving my 3 year old and 11 month old at home.

llareggub Thu 18-Mar-10 22:54:44

I meant to add; what time to meet?

RuthBlackett Thu 18-Mar-10 22:56:28

Heheh- make sure you meet at the CE cathedral not the RC one! grin

tibni Thu 18-Mar-10 22:58:38

queenoftheslatterns suggested 11.30

I have no sense of direction confused - it is 0.6 miles from the station if we go the direct route!

bottyspottum Thu 18-Mar-10 23:04:28

ok so 11.30 at the cathedral on colmore row

anyone will be able to direct you there so just ask for directions. it is about 7/8 minutes walk from new street.

queenoftheslatterns has me on fb if you are coming with her she will recognise me

Gosh you lot have been busy while I've been doing laundry. Ugh.

Think I may be the only one driving - so I'll liaise with you there - I will be wearing my judgey pants and a cat's bum face.

Korma - I have always been chaos - my memory is a bit duff but I think you directed me to a meet up thread which I couldn't go on and didn't even post on. BUt, due to my noseyness refined curiosity I think you might be either a wedding dress shop owner or horsemad. confused

Am ROFL at the gnippiks llareggub. grin

Noooooo don't say that! I even started a thread on the protocol on looking at people's profile when you felt that you had had a rapport with them.

It was a almost unanimous vote for completely normal and notstalkerishatall.

Yahboosucks. grin

bottyspottum Thu 18-Mar-10 23:45:45

TidyBush Fri 19-Mar-10 00:10:55

I can only reveal that I will be travelling in a southerly direction (anything more specific and I will have to go into hiding grin).

Hello - just popped on on phone for "one quick last look!"

TidyBush Fri 19-Mar-10 16:35:13

Or are you me confused

littlesleepyhead Fri 19-Mar-10 20:06:16

I'm being chauffeur driven by DH

Well TB my next door neighbour does not have an immaculate garden. grin

So I'm guessing - it's not you.

But, without revealing too much I'm A34-ish. Comprendez? wink
