Following on from the conversation in the France internet shopping thread - who would like to meet up in Paris in Oct/Nov, and what date(s) would you prefer?

Bugger - forgot the holidays. Ummmmm...... maybe November then.

How about Friday 23 November?

Anna8888 Mon 10-Sep-07 13:56:55

OK - so sometime from Monday 12 November onwards?

I'm in Brussels the weekend of Friday 16/Saturday 17/Sunday 18 November. Wednesdays are bad for me (though not impossible if it has to be a Wednesday).

Other people?

Anna8888 Mon 10-Sep-07 13:57:26

Friday 23 November would be very good for me grin

suedonim Mon 10-Sep-07 17:06:07

Good grief, I think I might be able to get to a Parisian meet-up during the week 19-23rd. shock grin

Where do you live Suedonim?

AuldAlliance Tue 11-Sep-07 10:21:46

Looks as if I won't be able to make it: I can't get time off work during the week.

mrsjetson Tue 11-Sep-07 10:24:06

Suedonim - you're in the wrong Continent surely!!!! wink envy

I have 8 days left here and then back to home until January!!!! Hooray!

Othersideofthechannel Tue 11-Sep-07 12:07:04

Are you a teacher AuldAlliance?

Is there anyone who can't do weekends? I can't remember.

Anna8888 Tue 11-Sep-07 12:10:13

I am not totally against weekends - if that's what's easiest for the majority, I can do a weekend.

But not the first, second and third weekends in November - they are already taken.

Othersideofthechannel Tue 11-Sep-07 17:41:49

So how about 24th November?

Anna8888 Tue 11-Sep-07 18:12:56

Saturday 24 November would be fine.

suedonim Tue 11-Sep-07 18:20:46

OSOTC, I'm mostly in Nigeria but with a base in Scotland.

The 24th is not a good day for me, unless you all want to come to my ds's wedding! grin

Othersideofthechannel Tue 11-Sep-07 20:03:07

So you'll be in France that week because your son is getting married in France on 24th?

AuldAlliance Wed 12-Sep-07 12:58:15

Yes, I'm a teacher. Wednesdays are out, too, since I have DS to look after. TBH, I'm not even sure I'd be able to make it at the weekend, the way things are at work and home (and on my bank statements!!) right now, so please don't shift things around to fit me in.
I'll look forward to photos and feedback, and hope to make it to the next meetup.

Othersideofthechannel Wed 12-Sep-07 13:07:46

I can't make Wednesdays either because it is my only on my own with the DCs. I guess we'll have to see what date suits the most people 23rd or 24th November.....

Othersideofthechannel Wed 12-Sep-07 13:08:34

only DAY on my own

suedonim Wed 12-Sep-07 23:30:20

OSOTC, yes, we'll be in Paris from 18th-26th Nov. But don't take me into account with planning a date, I have no idea of our timetable for the week. smile

Othersideofthechannel Thu 13-Sep-07 05:32:16

Yes, IME you are unlikely to be able to grab a few free hours from the wedding preparation mayhem!

Othersideofthechannel Thu 13-Sep-07 18:13:08

So is it just Anna and I (and possibly Auldalliance) who could make it?

Anna8888 Fri 14-Sep-07 09:06:48

Where's ggg gone? She was the instigator - she's supposed to be coming up to Paris in November and that's how it all got rolling.

Othersideofthechannel Sat 15-Sep-07 09:31:30

Well, I'll keep my Sat 24th free anyway and see how much interest we get over the next few weeks.

Saturdays and time off from the kids are pretty precious so if there's only going to be two of us, seems like we should try again in the New Year and see if we can drum up more interest. What do you think?

Othersideofthechannel Tue 18-Sep-07 05:35:05

No one else interested?
