OK, I know it's halfway through the holidays so a bit late for this holiday - but it's been a while so who wants to do a catch up? Probably without sprogs but I'm open to suggestions!

I'll start the bidding with any Sunday after this weekend coming would probably be ok! grin

Thumb! Sorry for the late response. I'm down for a catch up. Have a baby due in 8 days, however, so perhaps after that? wink.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Wed 13-Jul-16 02:55:43

Oh yes! that might not be too convenient just now, eh? wink

I'm in. I think I'm free most Sundays. Although currently stranded in Hobart due to massive delays on the inbound aircraft. Might have to start a Tassie MNers group if I'm here much longer 😂

I would love to be involved in a get together! Off to the UK this weekend for a week though (I know, right?) so next Sunday no good for me. My sis then arrives for a few weeks so I'm not sure I'm a good bet!!!

ThumbWitchesAbroad Wed 13-Jul-16 08:26:32

Don't worry, MrsDe - it usually takes us a few weeks to get co-ordinated! wink

And of course new babies are always welcome, Liz smile

All right, we have a starting date of 21st August. July is out, 7th and 14th August are out - so this is our first point of agreement.

Any advance on 21st August?

I'm about to move out there but DH and I don't land until the 23rd! Pregnant with my first. Hope you don't mind an interloper?

ThumbWitchesAbroad Sat 16-Jul-16 05:34:18

Of course not, elderberries! Keep an eye on this thread and this board, and if the date changes to when you're here, then of course you're welcome to come along! We usually manage one or 2 meet-ups per year, so even if you do miss this one, we'll be around again soon enough smile

Tentative yes from me.
August is a tricky month but it would be good to catch up.

MrsDe Tue 26-Jul-16 04:52:38

My sis is here then so I won't be able to do the 21 August I'm afraid. Happy to sit this one out and come to the next one though.

I'm just saying hello as I've just arrived here. I'm currently in Newcastle, but I'm off on my travels in a couple of weeks. I'll keep a look out for another one in the future smile

ThumbWitchesAbroad Wed 03-Aug-16 15:10:43

Hey Wombat - I'm not far from Newcastle!
Those of us in that area keep saying we should do a more local meet up as well, so keep an eye out! smile

Thanks Thumb! I'm in North Lambton at the mo. Doing a big drive around for 6 months then heading for Sydney for a bit. Only here for a year initially - DP is central coast raised and living in London. We hope to be here in the future depending on how this year goes!

OttoTheOnly Fri 05-Aug-16 06:55:50

I'm in Sydney - moved over from NZ earlier this year. Would love to meet with others if you decide on a date and location.

whovillewho Sat 06-Aug-16 14:58:24

Yes would love to meet up!

ThumbWitchesAbroad Sat 06-Aug-16 15:32:58

OK then - so 21st August - usual meeting time is around 12:30 (mostly to accommodate me and trains!) and we just need to decide a venue. Too cold for the Opera Bar (a favourite), and possibly even the Helm Bar, depending on how busy it is - any ideas? Try the Belgian beer café again? or somewhere else?

whovillewho Wed 10-Aug-16 09:04:41

Hello not sure where my earlier post went! I am free 11 to 2pm if meeting in the city as coming from Manly (youngest has a longish birthday party to go to, oldest is doing the colour run with her dad). Will look up the Belgian beer cafe. smile

WhereTheFuckIsMyFuckingCoat Wed 10-Aug-16 09:58:23

Hello!! <wave>
Looks like I'm ok for the 21st. I'm coming from Lambton, so looking to arrive in central at approx 12:00 if I don't want to be up at stupid o'clock.

I'm defo easy re venue as long as it's not cold and sells wine!! grin

Can't believe it's been over a year since the last meet up!!

Tootoofunny Thu 11-Aug-16 06:02:55

Hi that's a deffo from me Belgian beer cafe I can rock up at 12 it was nice and quiet if I recall but I can set up camp in obvious vicinity of the door and shall have my rugby winning St George mug on the table

Tootoofunny Thu 11-Aug-16 06:03:44

That's so people can identify me not just because I'm a fucking weirdo

Tootoofunny Thu 11-Aug-16 06:04:26

You can ask me about the closure of Sydney college of the arts
