We need to organise this a bit in advance so that as many people as possible can come. It doesn't have to be lunch of course - we could make it dinner so that the working mums have more of a chance to come.

Any suggestions?

RuthChan Tue 03-May-11 20:51:30

When is she leaving?

Longtime Tue 03-May-11 21:32:01

Good question RuthChan. I've just sent her a message and will post when I get a reply.

I've replied! I am leaving on August 1st with DD. As I explained to Longtime, DH is going to Thailand for a fortnight in July, so sometime then would be best. I need to ask him exactly when he is going, he's booked the flights but I wasn't really interested TBH.

Hi Kreecher

Have just replied but didn't for some reason register that July is already the summer holidays. We can certainly try and do something then (we don't away until August so I know we're free) with the dcs as well but I was hoping to do a lunch before they break up for summer so either this month or next.

Any suggestions for dates anyone?

I'm away for pretty much the whole of July. How about one of the BH's that are coming up? I am off work 2/3 June and 13th June for definite.

Other than that I can do most weekends til then. Not 10/11th June as going to the UK for a wedding, nor 23rd May as it is the Champions League final and DH is throwing a party (hopefully not too prematurely) - all are welcome!

Also happy to host something (BBQ?) at mine.....

RuthChan Wed 04-May-11 10:22:01

I'm away for the second half of July, but have few plans until then.
I'm up for a BBQ or lunch etc with our families or a quiet do with just adults.
I have a pretty empty diary, so am quite flexible except for weekday evenings.

Portofino Wed 04-May-11 11:19:26

Ruthchan - I must reorganise an evening to bring Thai food over now there is no risk of snow!

RuthChan Wed 04-May-11 18:13:50

Portofino: Now THERE'S a suggestion.
DH is away tomorrow night...

Portofino Wed 04-May-11 20:19:24

I can't do tomorrow sad but email me when he is away next.....

TBH, I'd prefer an afternoon thing where we could bring our DC. I am prepared to host a BBQ in our miniscule back garden if anyone fancies that?

Longtime Thu 05-May-11 23:14:11

BBQ sounds good. Our garden's too small too. Porto's offering too smile

kreecherlivesupstairs Fri 06-May-11 08:36:35

Whichever suits. As I said, our garden really is miniscule, I'd estimate it is 10 metres long by about 4 metres wide. Not big enough to swing all the nine cats next door joined together.

Portofino Fri 06-May-11 09:18:14

I am happy to host! Our garden is not huge but we have quite a big terrace and a large table. Have quite a lot of space inside too in case it rains....

I could put the paddling pool/swingball out and force ask DH to wait on us. grin

kreecherlivesupstairs Fri 06-May-11 09:39:55

If you don't mind that would be fantastic. Me and DD could also supply swingball and some kebabs or pudding or something lovely.

I do think YYF should be guest of honour ...

Portofino Fri 06-May-11 10:10:54

grin at YYF! How could we tempt him to come?

kreecherlivesupstairs Fri 06-May-11 11:29:42

Don't forget he's been demoted, he is now YF on acount of gorgeous Mrs YYF.

RuthChan Fri 06-May-11 12:22:57

I think I've missed something...<Confused emoticon>

kreecherlivesupstairs Fri 06-May-11 13:02:52

If that's referring to YYF being demoted, it really is quite simple. He is married.

Portofino Sat 07-May-11 23:41:23

Still happy. I live very close to the Brussels Ring/E40. I know Belgo can get here on the bus from Leuven (as she has already been for coffee and twitched over my playmobile)

kreecherlivesupstairs Sun 08-May-11 06:36:48

OK, it seems to have settled on a do at Porto's. Can I suggest some dates that are good for me and DD. I doubt that DH would come, he is always busy at work and then he is going to Thailand for two weeks so me and littlekreech will be all alone smile

belgo Sun 08-May-11 06:38:05

'as she has already been for coffee and twitched over my playmobile'

your playmobil Portofino? I thought it was your dd'swink

Portofino Sun 08-May-11 09:34:21

If anyone has any preferences for a meet up location, that fine with me too! I don't want to takeover blush....

kreecherlivesupstairs Sun 08-May-11 09:42:53

TBH, I don't think you are taking over. you are making life easy for the rest of us who osscilate between here, there or somewhere else.
