Hi all

I think we should try and meet soon if the weather is half decent next week lets make a plan. The only day I can't do is Thursday so happy to meet any other day. Once we have all met up once its easier to get together at houses if the weather is poor. By the way there is a new cafe in princes park too, I haven't been yet but from photos it looks like it has more room inside, if the weather is poor,

Would love to meet up but my 2 are now at school - would be out of place without a baby! I hope you manage a meeting and have a fab time x

Medi89 Thu 07-Mar-13 16:33:07

ESP1 - Mine are now adult & older than nicolak92 - I went to the last (well first) meeting & it was fine.

ESP1 Thu 07-Mar-13 19:21:29

Thanks Medi89, will come along then!

Medi89 Thu 07-Mar-13 19:48:53

Thanks Medi89, will come along then!

And I aMm looking forward to meeting you.

All we have to do is arrange a day & a time.

EmilyButtonsMum where are you?

(She is the MN amabassador - all hail :D)

Medi89 Thu 07-Mar-13 19:49:29

Am not aMm - so annoying that you can't correct your post!

EmilyButtonsMum Fri 08-Mar-13 09:45:23

Alas medi i am local editor, i'm still looking for a local ambassador smile Baby is teething so have taken a bit of a back seat this week smile

So can we have a count of who is up for meeting please? All welcome, with or without babies smile

Medi89 Fri 08-Mar-13 15:50:14

Editor? Ambassador? It all sound good to me - does it mean you go to MNHQ & drink lots of gin?

I'm up for a meeting.

Hope teeth are coming through OK & not causing you too much lack of sleep.

EmilyButtonsMum Fri 08-Mar-13 17:39:27

I'm much more of a Southern Comfort drinker than a Gin drinker.

Its one particular tooth that is being difficult, she's sleeping ok, she is just very grizzly during the days sad Poor baby smile

Medi89 Fri 08-Mar-13 19:38:18

wine Southern Comfort for you & sympathy for that lovely girl of yours. Hope that tooth pops through tomorrow.

JenWren32 Fri 08-Mar-13 20:41:29

Hi ladies!

We are all moved in and I am now free to meet up! Thanks for all your messages wishing me well with the move. It went ok thanks, still got half the stuff in boxes mind (it's surprising how you don't need half the stuff on a daily basis) but we have all we need out at the moment. I'm hoping to crack on with things at the weekend when my partner is home too.

The park I mentioned was definitely not Hampden Park as we walked through parks near the old town. Perhaps the baby cars I saw were nothing to do with the cafe. Anyway, I am happy to meet wherever. Let's hope that after the rain and the cold snap we're due to have that things improve and we can meet up outside somewhere :-) .

I'm free from 18th March to meet up if you ladies fancy meeting up then?

JenWren32, I reckon you mean the tennis cafe in Gildredge park too! They have lots of ride-on toys and cars for little ones outside the cafe, as well as a small play area inside. And their cake is amazing smile

I'm up for meeting up - however we're doing up a house and moving in the next few weeks and I'm 35 weeks pregnant! So I can't promise anything right now. Having said that, considering neither DS nor I are the most helpful right now, going to the cafe to get out of the way of painting etc might actually be the most helpful thing we can do!

EmilyButtonsMum Sat 09-Mar-13 07:42:22

Hi Jen, Glad that the move went okay.

I agree that you may be thinking of Gildredge park if you were walking around the Old Town area.

aufaniae I cant decide whether you are brave or mad to be doing up a house and moving at that late stage of pregnancy!! Hope that your move goes as smoothly as possible. Are you hoping to move before or after baby's arrival?

Mellow1975 Sat 09-Mar-13 08:19:16

Hi all,
Congrats on your move Jen it's never easy, I moved 5 times in 6 years and have vowed never to move again.
Aufaniae I think you should definitely come and meet us, paint fumes are not good for you smile cake is.
I am for meeting Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays are better days for me, in term time it would be me and my one year old son, holidays I also have my 5 year old son

Look forward to seeing you all whether you have children or not xxx

Medi89 Mon 25-Mar-13 16:32:20

Do you think it will be warm enough to meet by about July? grin

<cabin fever coming on here>

EmilyButtonsMum Tue 26-Mar-13 18:01:54

I'm not convinced that its ever going to warm up this year. Its not the cold that bothers me so much but the relentless greyness sad

Medi89 Tue 26-Mar-13 20:10:48

Yes, it's very, very depressing.

I am a glass half full person. It's going to be a long hot summer.

We'll be meeting up on the beach, come July, & going swimming! grin

(I usually sea swim from late May/early June through to October)

JenWren32 Thu 18-Apr-13 11:35:32

Hi Ladies!

Wow that is a lot of times to move in 6 years Mellow1975, you must be a dab hand at it! We get our sofa's delivered on Monday. Hurrah! I can't wait! Somewhere comfy to sit :-)

Would any of you fancy meeting up next week? Would Friday 26th suit any of you ladies? I had a quick peak at what you wrote previously and Mellow you mentioned you are up for meeting up on Fridays, are any of you free that day?

Gildridge Park cafe has been mentioned a couple of times, maybe we could meet there?

Hope you are all doing ok and enjoying the first few glimpses of sunshine, yay!

Jen x

EmilyButtonsMum Thu 18-Apr-13 19:29:13

26th sounds good to me.

Shall we make it at Gildredge park?

Medi89 Fri 19-Apr-13 11:01:01

So sorry, I will be away & can't make it - but will be up for the next one.
