Hi all. We've just relocated here from Auckland and I am officially a 'Billy no mates'! So, if you're keen to join a regular coffee group (weekly or fortnightly) that would meet at each others homes, markets, cafes, Kelvingrove Art Gallery or outside when its sunny then get in touch. We have a one year old girl and I am a full time Mommy. I'm easy going & down to earth and my pals in NZ are all great (Czech, Croatian, Kiwi, English, Irish, single, married, working - you get the idea) - we kept each other real over the madness of motherhood! We're going to be living in Lochwinnoch, but I'll be in the West End atleast once a week for my city dose. Okidoki - hopefully I'll hear from someone as I need to discuss why my beautiful child has turned into a shouting banshee! If you see this months after it was posted then still get in touch. You can check my profile if you want to know a bit more about me...and you're really bored ;-)
I hope you'll get some more feedback but keep an eye out for some Mumsnet Glasgow meet-ups - we're not very good at getting organised and reaching the critical momentum for a meet-up but we'll probably manage to achieve one over the summer holidays (which reminds me: I should start a thread......)
My ds is 10 and I live on the South Side.
I actually lived for a couple of years in NZ when I was a teenager (a looooooong time ago ) when my parents emigrated there - but we emigrated back again after 2 years (the 3rd emigration: the first being from SA when I was a toddler) - so I have some inkling as to what it is like to be BillyNoMates. Well done you for posting this!
Hello all. Thanks for the responses. We are about to move into temporary accomodation prior to moving into our long term rental on July 1st, so I will organise something as soon as I can after that. @ Prettybird-I will definitely keep an eye out for the get togethers-thanks! @ Blottedcopybook-I will be in touch to find out more & to set up something...& we got what you meant :-) @ RockThePots-I had to laugh at your elephant comment, I've only been twice and I can see how the novelty could wear thin! Cheers everyone...
I'm always up for a meet-up - though my dses are all at school (14, 16 and nearly 18) so wouldn't be needing the art materials - lol!
The Burrell Collection, in Pollock park, is a wonderful place to meet - it has a good cafe, and it's a fascinating place just to wander round - he collected such a wide variety of artifacts and art that there is something for everyone. If you'd like to meet up there, either as a group, or just for a 1-2-1 meeting, to get out of the house and meet someone new, I'd love to meet you there (or somewhere else).
Have you seen the meet-up being organised for this Thursday over here? At Litecraft on Great Western Road, time (I think) after 12.30.
I haven't decided yet if I'll be bringing ds (who's 10) or if I've managed to find someone to offload him onto out if there is a friend he want to go and play with. I'll be coming from the Southside but may decide to cycle over to get some exercise.
Hi ladies. I would love to meet up. I recently moved to Glasgow from Aberdeen. I have a son (4) and am stopping work next month in preparation for a new arrival in November. Would be great to get to know some other mums. I'm in Bearsden, so West End is great for me!
