Me!! Are you here in Athens mwro? I have been on mn for years and I'm still waiting for someone to have a meet up with!!!

Beetrootccio, Karpenisi is quite a drive from Athens (about 3 hours I think). Not been but heard it's beautiful. I've been here 3 years. I do like it (the weather makes a difference) but some things here drive me up the wall! Have to get used to turning a blind eye to lots of things! How long has your family been here?

Lurkylou, yes, I'm in the northern suburbs so Halandri is not far away. Don't know it that well as an area.

I'm also keen to know if anyone knows about any classes or groups I could go to with my baby (e.g. baby massage classes).

This place should be close to you if you are in the northern suburbs.
neohumanist centre
I think quite a few foreign mums go there.

The northern suburbs are FULL of foreigners!!

I have a friend who plays bridge 3 times a week etc that my other friends will love when they arrive!!

What do you have to turn a blind eye to????

yes Karpenisis is miles away. and they live and hour further on. We go there regualrly. It is a wonderful place. My bother and his wife own a cafe there and are building a hotel. It is very remote, I for one, do not know how either of them survive there

Hi, I am a Swedish mum living in Athens, in Thissio in the center. I have two kids, Theo 2 and Felicia 1. Would love to meet up with anyone who has kids and would like to speak English for a while.

Thanks Pollylogos. I had a look at that website and am now going to a baby massage class on Friday! How old are your children?
