I'm am determined to make the Belfast Local Boards (and Co Antrim, where I also Tsarina!) more active!

Who is up for a conversation about living in Belfast and the absolute lack of child friendly places to go?! grin

Seriously, anyone about?

AnEcumenicalMatter Thu 09-Feb-12 21:07:50

I'm in East Belfast, very near Ballyhack. Not aware of a soft play place...there is a cafe beside M&S which is family friendly and maybe has a separate play area? Called Jellybean I think but I've never been in it.

BlackLashes Thu 09-Feb-12 22:35:50

Yes that's it. Jellybean! Opps! thought it was soft play. Heard alot about it being child friendly too.

On the subject of baby 'stuff', I used McCullough's in Bangor for my Pram,cot etc. However, if Ikea had been here then, I would prob have bought there.

Lilyni congrats and welcome to the Twins Club!

DizzyCow63 Thu 09-Feb-12 22:37:14

Oh Ecumenical, I'm in east Belfast and very near Ballyhackamore too! Jellybean tray bakes are yum!

Any of yous in Bangor leisure centre this evening wearing a mumsnet scarf?

AnEcumenicalMatter Thu 09-Feb-12 22:49:51

Not me...but I do own a Mumsnet scarf. Although I bought it before it became famous on Mumsnet <sucker for leopard print>

Dizzy, oooh...we're practically neighbours! And how did I not know about amazing tray bakes on my doorstep? Tray bakes would be my Mastermind chosen specialised subject!

BlackLashes Fri 10-Feb-12 19:36:15

Oh I do love my MN scarf, brown leopard, if you please...

AnEcumenicalMatter Fri 10-Feb-12 19:59:02

Brown leopard is the one I have smile

I wear it to death. My work colleagues must be sick of the sight of it.

BlackLashes Fri 10-Feb-12 20:33:34

Feeling the need to have another one in my life. Possibly the blue?

sighnomore Fri 10-Feb-12 20:58:21

Ooh I'm in Belfast too :waves frantically: i have a dd 7 and ds 2. Excited for a norn iron thread!

BlackLashes Fri 10-Feb-12 21:36:43

Think we should all meet up in Belfast and go out on the lash!

scampbell84 Sat 11-Feb-12 20:12:26

Wow can't believe so many from east Belfast.. I am too!! 'ecumenical' when's your 20 wk scan?? I'm looking forward to mine on Monday!! Good to see a Belfast threat, it seems when u comment on the larger threads... Ie, antenatal, you are only graced with a reply if your a regular poster!!

BlackLashes Sat 11-Feb-12 20:14:50

Oh sorry, forgot so many of you are pregnant!

AnEcumenicalMatter Sat 11-Feb-12 20:27:25

BlackLashes...I'm up for going out on the lash when I'm able to drink again.

scampbell...another eastie! I actually had my scan yesterday but have to go back again in 2 weeks as they couldn't get all the measurements that they needed. A little disappointing but at least I get to see the little one again smile Good luck for Monday! Hope yours is more co-operative and less camera shy than mine.

scampbell84 Sat 11-Feb-12 20:32:52

Ecumenical I hope so and being a bit optimistic that they will tel us the sex but with it being the ulster I'm not holding out much hope!

AnEcumenicalMatter Sat 11-Feb-12 20:55:26

Don't get your hopes up...my SiL has had all 3 of her kids in the Ulster and wasn't once told the sex.

TeeTsarina Sat 11-Feb-12 20:58:53

Hi all

Sorry not been around, have a horrid cold and very busy with work.

Maybe not a lash but maybe we can do something with kids? I'm open for ideas!

BulstrodeTheApatosaurus Sat 11-Feb-12 22:10:28

Ooo i am in East Belfast too! 2 small boys. Soft play place near Connswater closed down last year. Best local bet is Mookie world or Ikea if over 3 years old.

BlackLashes Sat 11-Feb-12 22:52:26

Maybe we should all meet in Ikea and put the little'uns in the free creche!

Ecumenical love to go out on the lash after baby's born.

TeeTsarina Wed 15-Feb-12 13:42:52

Dropped off my list again...

Does everyone want to list what days they are free and we'll try to find a place and a time and everything?

With kids; Tuesday or Thursday.
Without kids; Friday. I usually work Monday and Wednesday but have been known to do other things instead. grin Advantage to being a freelancer!

lynnehan51 Wed 15-Feb-12 16:49:02

TeeTsarina Wed 15-Feb-12 17:28:20

Hi Lynne!

Where's Mookie World?

AnEcumenicalMatter Wed 15-Feb-12 17:47:49

Where is this Mookie World if which you speak?

Lynne! Another (almost) Ballyhack dweller!! Who knew there were so many Easties on Mumsnet?

lynnehan51 Wed 15-Feb-12 18:28:23

hey girls mookie world is at the omniplex, dundonald, has toddler section with small slide and another section for bigger kids, very friendly and nothing like indianna land which i cant stand, they have a small coffee area which sells lots of differnt foods for adults/kids, i loved the fact they had those little tykes for babies my lb luved it

TeeTsarina Mon 20-Feb-12 18:07:05

Conversation seems to have died again!

How are all of our pregnant ladies? grin

Husband just sent me a text...WH Smiths in Belfast City Centre is closing and already has a sign sending people to Eason for books and newspapers.

Brianstorm Mon 27-Feb-12 11:16:12

Hi again - this fell off my 'threads you're on' list, and just remembered to look for it this morning. My, my, you've all been very busy - and I am definitely up for a meet-up smile

Hope all the pregnant ladies are still enjoying the nicest bit with all the energy, and none of the massive weight gain yet wink

And Black Lashes - Ikea sounds like a brill idea. I often sometimes use their crèche as free childcare so I can get a quiet cup of coffee. Maybe we could all meet downstairs with the Mumsnet scarf...
