I'm in London -anyone up for a meal /drinks on Saturday night ?

Italian? Devora? Pheasant ? kewcumber? Other south east dwellers?

Kewcumber Wed 26-Feb-14 18:55:40

so will I feel like a big imposter?

Yes and we will all point and laugh at you...

Devora, Greyhound Kristina - what did you think of last venue? It would save making a decision on anywhere new?

KristinaM Wed 26-Feb-14 19:06:39

It was a bit noisy < country girl > TBH

namechangesforthehardstuff Wed 26-Feb-14 19:43:07

Ach well it'll make a change from people who know me pointing and laughing...

KristinaM Wed 26-Feb-14 19:44:50

< misses the whole point of London >

Kewcumber Wed 26-Feb-14 20:56:46

In central london?

Kewcumber Wed 26-Feb-14 20:57:18

where is the rolly eye emoticon when you need one?

Italiangreyhound Wed 26-Feb-14 22:49:08

I liked it. Lovely food. But any where close by is fine.

KristinaM Wed 26-Feb-14 22:54:03

Kew, can I refer you to this thread

Can those who have had a child adopted come I'm a Londoner?

Devora Wed 26-Feb-14 22:57:29

I liked this one from that thread:

"when your relatives from the city visit and have to keep the radio on all night because they cant sleep in the dead silence (other than the animal noises which scare them)"

That's me! I always get very spooked in the country. You get vampires out there, don't you?

I'd like to come if I can switch around some other things in the diary - I keep missing these meetings!

PheasantPlucker Thu 27-Feb-14 14:05:16

In diary.

Message me/text me the venue etc when you decide, thanks.

Looking forward to seeing you.

KristinaM Thu 27-Feb-14 15:58:22

Stupid mummy -of course you can come. Only condition is that you get a new name for this board, not just the meet up smile

We have all done stupid things as parents, but we can't let it define us

StupidMistakes Thu 27-Feb-14 18:32:00

I want to meet people the other side of adoption. The side that do the amazing draining loving job of giving that child exactly what they need.

I shall go change my user name now

OurMiracle1106 Thu 27-Feb-14 18:38:32

It's former stupid mistakes. I changed my name grin

OneOfOurLilkasIsMissing Thu 27-Feb-14 18:43:54

Yay! Finally grin Hi Miracle smile

KristinaM Thu 27-Feb-14 21:28:43

thanks Miracle

Meita Thu 27-Feb-14 21:32:47

thanks Miracle, I hope we can share a brew soon.

Italiangreyhound Thu 27-Feb-14 21:46:14

Hi Miracle - like it.

Devora Thu 27-Feb-14 21:47:31

Much better smile

Kewcumber Fri 28-Feb-14 17:06:39

Miracle (Yay!) you may sooooo regret that we are a bit loud and lairy. Well I say we but mostly I mean Kristina and Devora. I'm an accountant I just add up the bill and split it accurately.

Kewcumber Wed 26-Mar-14 12:09:02

just bumping this in case anyone else wants to throw their hat in teh ring.

And in case someone wants to find somewhere quiet in central London for Kristina hmm

Italiangreyhound Wed 26-Mar-14 12:46:35

I am really sorry but something unavoidable has come up so very sadly I will not be able to make it.

Have fun, and please invite me to the next.

Hels20 Wed 26-Mar-14 12:54:12

I'm still up for it. DH will be on babysitting duty. I can do Central London/West London - or anywhere really. Don't mind going South of river or further North or East!
