OK I'll add a q4 - where is the nearest reasonably big place you'll admit to living near? Mine is Esh Winning.

Default "butt out" answer is London

No No No

NettoSuperstar Thu 16-Jun-11 14:59:53

Yes, yes, yes.
I'm from there, but moved away 14 years ago.

Oldham grin

I'll get my coat.

I'm from Teesside. I don't go to the meetups because I don't drive so it would mean getting a train and I have school runs to do and dog walking so can never fit them in. That and I have very little confidence and worry you would all judge me for being too northern and too working class.

I am from a NE mining/shipping town. My Dad was a handyman. I own a Whippet. I don't walk her on a string, she has a lovely leather lead grin.

" worry you would all judge me for being too northern and too working class."

but I think we're all more northern than you grin You'd be the soft southerners, you and your shivering whippet grin

Just east of York and I still count myself as from the North East, although I was born in North Shields if that helps boost my credentials. (not that I live there anymore, oh no, bloody freezing place! grin)

GabbyLoggon Thu 16-Jun-11 15:08:24

I have connection in Middlesbrough, but I dont live there

BillComptonstrousers Thu 16-Jun-11 15:12:08

There are north east meet ups ?? how did I miss this?

imhungry Thu 16-Jun-11 15:16:03

Dooinmecleanin, I'm 35. Left Hartlepool around 16 years ago. How about you?

DooinMeCleanin Thu 16-Jun-11 15:35:12

I'm 29, but DH is 34. You might know him. I'm still here. I moved to Manchester for a while, but had to come home when ex twat left me alone and homeless when I was pg with dd1. I want to move to Durham or Newcastle but DH won't.

SongBirdsKeepSinging Thu 16-Jun-11 15:41:07

I am in Middlesbrough, my dad calls dd a smog monster (he is a mackem) I moved here 2 years ago.I didn't know there were meet ups!

DooinMeCleanin Thu 16-Jun-11 15:42:09

NettoSuperstar Thu 16-Jun-11 15:42:33

I was born in North Shields too, though I never lived there.

BillComptonstrousers Thu 16-Jun-11 15:45:21

Come to Durham DooinMeCleanin, it's lovely!

SongBirdsKeepSinging Thu 16-Jun-11 15:50:29

I am a hermit and know virtually no one (only people through dp) and don't drive so don't really know how to get anywhere. I neeeeeed new people in my life that are not dp's friends girlfriends.have suffered with pnd (so didn't really do baby groups) and got pregnant again (5 weeks to go!) so once new baby is born and I'm back on my feet will make massive effort to meet people and go places.

I like Durham just for fat buddha!
