Hi all smile

Following on from the other thread I thought I would start this so we can try and arrange a meet up (I was posting as MistyBells). Happy to see there are a few of us local to each other!

I am in South Staffordshire myself (Rugeley) but I am happy to hop on a train!

Hello, I'm in Stafford (my name on the main forum is Hygellig) but can travel. Would you be interested in a daytime meeting with kids in tow?

CatchingFire Mon 10-Aug-15 21:53:35

You're not too far from me then! I would be interested in a meet up with kids smile I could do either/ both actually

Where abouts are you Only1scoop?

Thanks for starting the thread Catching Fire. I'm useless at thinking of new names so have stuck with the same! I'm in Wolverhampton but close to the Staffs border. Would love to meet up with kids or without?

I used to live in Wolves OnlyOneWayOfLife when I was at uni there, so I'm happy to have a meet up there! Haven't been back for a while actually. But Wolverhampton would be better for me minus the kids on an evening perhaps as I still don't have my driving licence (after 10 years of on and off lessons blush)

I know Peapod is in Stafford- I can easily get there with the kids as the bus from outside my house goes there

An evening meet in wolves would be good for me smile . When would suit people? When were you at Uni Catching? I went to uni here a long time ago which is how I met my now DP, hence living here.

I started at uni in 2003 OnlyOne, I was at both Wolves and Walsall campus but lived in wolves. When were you there?
Wolves night out would be great for me.

Shall we arrange a day meeting in Stafford with the kids as well Peapod?

CatchingFire Tue 11-Aug-15 16:46:45

I said 'Wolves' a lot in that post. Must be missing the place grin

I'm in Cannock and a daytime meeting with kids would be good although I'm back at work beginning of September so not many days available. DD is 8 mo.

Ah, I'm old! I started there in 1995! Lived in the wonderful Whitmore Reans and loved it. It's not quite the same living here as a grown up though.
Anyone else up for an evening meet in Wolves?

Peabod Wed 12-Aug-15 08:29:11

A daytime meeting in Stafford (or somewhere nearby) would be good. I can do pretty much any day apart from the afternoons of Friday 21st or Mon 24th.

Peabod Wed 12-Aug-15 08:40:19

For a daytime meet up in Stafford, I could do pretty much any day apart from Fri 21st or Mon 24th.

Peabod Wed 12-Aug-15 08:40:56

Sorry for duplicate posts!

CatchingFire Wed 12-Aug-15 11:28:14

I could do pretty much any day the week beginning the 24th for a day meet up?

CatchingFire Wed 12-Aug-15 11:31:58

Ah yes I lived in Whitmore reans as well during my second year grin

How many do we have for a wolves evening meet up?

OnlyOneWayOfLife Thu 13-Aug-15 20:31:04

Sorry for slow reply, not sure if it was the MN offline thingy but I've struggled to post anything for the past couple of days. Looks like it's definitely you and me, Catching , and maybe 3under5 ?

Peabod Thu 13-Aug-15 20:48:09

For anyone who's interested in a daytime meetup, how about Tuesday 25th August? Not sure what would work best - maybe in Victoria Park in Stafford, or a cafe, or somewhere like the Wolseley Centre?

CatchingFire Thu 13-Aug-15 21:30:01

I've been struggling to get in here as well.

3under5 would you be up for an evening meet up with Only and I? Anyone else? wine

Peapod that date is good with me if ok with anyone else? Pretty Poppies? Both your suggestions would be good Peapod- shall we see what weather is like nearer the time? There is also the soft play in Milford (at the barley mow I think it's called) if weather is dodgy!

PrettyPoppies Fri 14-Aug-15 13:39:31

I'm away W/C 24th but let me know if you arrange any further meet ups as I would really like to come.

Peabod Thu 27-Aug-15 22:08:06

A couple of us have arranged to meet up at the Playzone at the Barley Mow pub, Milford, ST17 0UW, at 11am on Monday 7th September if anyone else would like to come along.
