Thread over here looking for those interested in a Christmas meet-up.

The last few years there has been a good night out organised in Edinburgh. Even though I'm a weegie, I've always enjoyed the trip over - and have met some interesting Mumsnetters in the process (starting from having to try to find the other weegies at Queen Street!)

I'll be going over - anyone else interested?

I know it's along way away, but we Glaswegians usually like a piss-up chat grin!

There are now a few, OK, 2 West Coasters who have expressed an interest - StayingDavidTennatsGirl and me.

Surely we can drum up some more support from this side of the country

It's building up some momentum over here: there are now at least 3 of us going over from Glasgow.

Well, there's plenty of time yet Mummy03. Maybe if there is a meet-up in betweentimes in Glasgow where you can get a chance to meet some of us, you'll feel more confident

I didn't know anyone the first time I went to a meet-up! grin

I'd like to come (not been to a meet up yet) but I'm due on the 8th so probably not wise

MummyO3 Fri 03-Sep-10 17:33:27

Mummy03 - I think it was you who was originally from Milngavie. I used to live there too (opposite Cairns Church), although for various reasons, I went to Bearsden Academy rather than Douglas. However, I left school long before you were born blush

My mum and dad still live close to Milngavie.

Nope - none of those names ring any bells

I left school in 1978 shockblush

Looking forward to it

Another wee reminder: looks like it is going to be the frist meet-up for a few people, so it will be nice to meet a few new faces

I promise I am not a hairy trucker and that I will shave my arms for the occasion grin

Another reminder: there are still places

Go to the thread over here to gesiter your interest.
