Devora thanks for hosting so beautifully without even being there - hope to meet you next time smile.

Great to meet everyone and talk about world politics and psychology (translation: how we would rule the world, and how children's language develops esp through repeating... Great story Kew) Adoptoraptors Rule.

Was great to see you all and to be able to put faces to names! Sad that so many couldn't make it in the end, hopefully next time smile

Kewcumber Sat 26-Apr-14 23:58:07

And now 3 more people know that I'm just as voluble offline as online

Lovely time meeting people and swapping stories though Kew's story about her DS repeating a story about someone tops it!

Devora Sat 26-Apr-14 22:45:19

I've just swapped texts with Kew - feel like I'm almost there meself grin

Did let Devora know yesterday but we've had a bit of a week and panel is frighteningly close so am ducking out. Next time though smile

Away even dumb phone

OurMiracle1106 Sat 26-Apr-14 20:22:08

My head is still painful and have been taking migraine tablets. I hope to make the next meet which I am praying won't be long swayed

Italiangreyhound Sat 26-Apr-14 20:21:00

envy missing you all, so sorry not to make it, only just got home from exhausting day.

Bless you all.

Hi everyone! Very sorry-my childcare arrangements have fallen through!! sad Another time, I hope!

Meita Sat 26-Apr-14 16:30:52

Migraines suck. Sorry you can't make it Miracle.

Hels20 Sat 26-Apr-14 16:11:56

BTW - thanks Devora for sorting this, especially as you are not coming.

Devora Sat 26-Apr-14 15:44:31

It's in my name Kew. Which I think you know...

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Kewcumber Sat 26-Apr-14 13:31:22

No, it's because they've heard of us and are desperate for us to come regardless of how many of us there are...

Whose name is it booked in?

Devora Sat 26-Apr-14 13:25:14

I've amended the booking to six people. The restaurant didn't sound remotely bothered, which probably tells you everything you need to know about its popularity...

OurMiracle1106 Sat 26-Apr-14 13:20:02

im really sorry I've been in bed all morning with a migraine. I can't even see properly atm so I wont be able to make it. Sorry.

Hels20 Sat 26-Apr-14 12:51:40

I'm coming! But I might be a bit late but I am definitely coming (just had a boy who refused to allow Daddy to put him to bed so I might be delayed doing that). But restaurant is close to where I live so I will definitely be there!

Polkadotpatty Sat 26-Apr-14 12:25:27

Def coming (although am probably already on your confirmed list!) Going shoe shopping first so I'll either be the one with loads of bags, or the one in need of a large glass of something... Excited to meet you all later.

Meita Sat 26-Apr-14 12:03:32

I'm coming. So make that four. Hey peeps, do come, I for one would love to meet you!

Devora Sat 26-Apr-14 11:27:56

I think I've only had three confirmed.

Devora Sat 26-Apr-14 11:22:53

I'm gaslighting you, Kew. Will text in a minute.

I've only had confirmations from a few of you and the table is for 12. I will reduce that to 6 or 8 to avoid pussing off the restsurant. So if you haven't told me you are comibg please do so.

I so wish I was joining you. I am NOT coping with motherhood today; the kids have nearly reduced me to tears. I badly need alcohol and people who understand.

Kewcumber Sat 26-Apr-14 10:21:47

I note that despite ringing me Devora has conspicuously failed to tell me where the restaurant is... have you all ganged up and decided I'm not invited...?
