There is a thread in meet-ups but have been asked to post here (by MNHQ no less!)

Suggested date/venue - Friday 8 August at St Werburghs City Farm. Any takers?

PussinJimmyChoos Mon 14-Jul-08 22:28:27

Me! Although am not sure about St Werburghs...because...this sounds awful but didn't you see the news a few weeks ago? Some care place lost a registered and mental sex offender that they had taken for a day trip to the farm??!!! Not the farms fault obviously <protects self from suing> but was still hmm.....mind you, you could say that about any place couldn't you...still hmm though...

Didn't hear about that... think the little ones would like the animals tho...

Off to bed now to rest my lardy belly delicate little bump

Would I be allowed to join in this fun if my mindees want to take along or is it mums only?

I'm afraid I've got my sister staying that week with her two kids, so we'll be at the zoo or at Blaise Castle or just collapsed in a heap while the three children dance on us in triumph!

Have a lovely time smile

10:30 is fine with me.
My son turned 2 last week and my daughter is 7 months.
Never been to St. Werburgh's so any change of scenery will be good.
Are we staying fo lunch? And if we are is there a café or should we have a picnic?

<<Feeling a bit shy>> blush

Never done a meet up it open to anyone...?!

RhinestoneCowgirl Mon 28-Jul-08 20:18:43

misspolly - yes meet-ups open to all How old is your DS/DD/combination thereof?

nikki - there is a cafe, haven't eaten there for yonks myself, but it is sposed to be nice. I have a just about to turn 2-yr old myself, plus bump due in December.

riven - FirstBus permitting I will be there at 10.30, promise!

misspollysdolly Tue 29-Jul-08 20:11:16

I have 2 DSs aged 3 years and 6 months. Also have an 8 year old DD who may be with me - DH may be off work that day so might just bring the littlies.

Am tempted - though have never done the 'meeting up with virtual people in real, life' thing. Bit daunted!

However we only live in Easton so no excuse not to come really - might find I know you all already anyway! - that's the bizarre twist of online communities I guess...?!

RhinestoneCowgirl Wed 30-Jul-08 19:14:30

Go on misspolly, you know you want to... We're all perfectly normal y'know, not one a hairy-handed trucker wink

Bums, I live near St W but the 8th is our one wedding of the year.

OsmosisBanana Thu 31-Jul-08 12:41:47

Riven, there is usually on street parking near City Farm. It's a dead end around there anyway...

you can drive under tunnel. From organic supermarket, go left at the roundabout (cornershop on left that does keys). Past the industrial units on left....
