Ach, totally missed all this! Yes please!


Would love to hear all about your new house lissie. We're trying to find somewhere too. Bloody nightmare. I hate househunting!

OracleInaCoracle Tue 21-Jun-11 21:26:33

nothing arranged yet! it would indeed be lovely. new house is fab. love it, love it, love it!

woollyjo Tue 21-Jun-11 21:31:17

Hi I live in the area and would be interested

OracleInaCoracle Tue 21-Jun-11 21:34:22

woollyjo, thats fab. I live in Ford, but assume that shrewsbury will be the best idea. shall we say a summer holiday outing?

seeksnewnamewithgsoh Tue 21-Jun-11 21:40:22

Sounds good to me. How is it that side of town? We've been trying to stay within the bypass but it's so hard. We've been looking south, but it's a long trundle through the traffic to work and nursery.

Summer holiday day of fun is good for me. A whole year since our last (first?) meet!

To introduce myself I've lived around here for 10 years and have 2DD (1 and 4.5). I work some days but if you sort a date and I'll join you if I can.

OracleInaCoracle Tue 21-Jun-11 21:46:44

oh, its lovely. cant quite get my head around the fact that we can walk to wales though. but its so quiet, and the school is fabulous. how long have you been looking? are you focussing on town or outside?

what date does everyone break up? ds is the 21st

OracleInaCoracle Tue 21-Jun-11 21:48:24

woollyjo, Im sure we can sort a date to suit everyone! Ive just moved over this way from Telford and have ds (6) I dont work, so am as easy as ryan giggs!

seeksnewnamewithgsoh Tue 21-Jun-11 22:33:22

I don't work Fridays, so that would be best for me <gets in first>

I've lived in Shrewsbury for 4 years, Telford for 10 before that and I have a 13mo DD.

We're trying to look in town so that I'm near to everything and don't get stranded in the country with a small child in winter. So no 15 minute treks up lanes (like to the inlaws where we're staying now), but around the bypass sort of distance. We had tenants moving into our flat so we had to scram. Had a lovely house lined up but the LL ended up being a twunt at the last minute. Narrow escape! But we've found nothing that fits the bill since.

Meanwhile, on topic....

seeksnewnamewithgsoh Tue 21-Jun-11 22:33:51

grin ryan giggs. well played grin

OracleInaCoracle Thu 23-Jun-11 13:09:52

god, househunting is such a pain in the arse! we fell quite lucky here, its a HA house. but we wanted a rural area tbh.

MrsMeow Thu 23-Jun-11 21:13:23

Oh HELLO! I think we should definitely have another meet up, it must be a year since the last one? We have great organisational skills, us Salopians!

I can't do the first 2 weeks of the summer hols but am fine after that. Not a prob if the meet is then, though - we can hopefully sort another one smile

OracleInaCoracle Fri 24-Jun-11 15:58:55

we are away from 30th july-8th august so shall we say tentatively 19th august?

seeksnewnamewithgsoh Fri 24-Jun-11 22:23:50

Hi MrsM. The 19th is good for me. We're on holiday for the last week of Aug.

I'd love to be rural eventually, there's just a little bit of townie in me that won't let go grin We're seeing three this weekend, joy!

seeksnewnamewithgsoh Fri 24-Jun-11 22:34:37

Oh, MrsM, I used to be dancingthroughlife. Just realised I recognise you and you probably haven't got a clue who I am! blush

MrsMeow Sat 25-Jun-11 13:07:17

Hiya seeks smile my memory is v bad I'm afraid? Are you the lovely lady with the gorgeous DD and stripey blanket that I wanted to steal off you? (DD and the blanket!! grin

19th is great for me!

seeksnewnamewithgsoh Sat 25-Jun-11 19:28:21

Green pushchair, stripey blanket - that's us! And thank you, said DD is indeed The Most Beautiful Girl Ever. Fact. wink She's a very mobile 1 year old now, how time flies.

I'm looking forward to this!

OracleInaCoracle Sat 25-Jun-11 19:47:49
