I have home-made gingerbread men with wobbly Ribena icing if anyone wants to join me?

Crocvillagemum Tue 26-Feb-13 09:00:53

I can do Mondays always (with the aforementioned DS and DD), and Tuesdays (minus spawn) until mid-April (when maternity leave finishes). And I want to get in as much coffee and cake as I can before I go back to work!

Becketts Tue 26-Feb-13 09:45:58

I'm free Monday and Tuesday.

GinAndIt Tue 26-Feb-13 12:32:29

yay! would anyone like to meet up next monday or tuesday? preferably somewhere with nice cake smile

Becketts Tue 26-Feb-13 13:55:30

I'm free either day. I'm not sure which places do nice cake, other than Johnson's. Have you got transport or are you relying on buses?

GinAndIt Tue 26-Feb-13 15:37:24

I have a car so only restricted by having to pick up ds from school at 3.

Crocvillagemum Tue 26-Feb-13 20:24:40

Frosts do very nice cake. I'm happy with either day.

GinAndIt Wed 27-Feb-13 07:27:20

shall we say monday then? Morning would be better for me if that's ok. Erm, where's frosts?!

Becketts Wed 27-Feb-13 07:51:55

Frosts is in Brampton. I've never been but I might go on Saturday morning, James Wong is doing a thing there.

Crocvillagemum Wed 27-Feb-13 13:46:04

Monday morning it is then? Assuming I can get DS to cooperate! Ooh, I heart James Wong a little bit. Might go too on Sat.

Crocvillagemum Wed 27-Feb-13 13:46:59

It, Frosts is just over the RAF Brampton roundabout, if you know where that is?

CambridgeMinor Wed 27-Feb-13 14:51:48

Monday mornings are usually good, but not next week, so enjoy your cake ladies.

Never heard of James Wong or the term ethnobotany before, but have just spent a productive 20 mins on Wikipedia so feel I've learnt something interesting even if I can't make the meet up.

Crocvillagemum Wed 27-Feb-13 16:36:29

Could we all make Tues instead then? Does that work for you minor?

GinAndIt Wed 27-Feb-13 16:47:44

have googled it and know where i'm going. is tuesday at 10 ok?

CambridgeMinor Wed 27-Feb-13 19:59:45

I can't do Mon/Tues/Weds next week as have visitors staying, but do go ahead and meet if you've got the momentum up - and if you have another I'll insist it's on a day that suits me smile

Crocvillagemum Wed 27-Feb-13 20:45:36

Shall we go back to Monday then - tempted as I am to vote for Tues as I'm without the sprogs then (but at risk of people thinking I'm embarrassed to be seen with them!) Please can we do 10.30, I know from bitter experience than 10am is a bit challenging for us grin

Becketts Thu 28-Feb-13 08:09:18

DH has got a hospital appointment on Monday morning so he'll need the car. It's at 9am, not sure what time he'll finish. Tuesday looks free for me.

Crocvillagemum Fri 01-Mar-13 23:06:42

Tues ok for you, it? I can do any time apart from 5pm when I'm going to get smeared.

GinAndIt Sat 02-Mar-13 08:27:47

Tuesday is fine smile 10.30?

Becketts Sat 02-Mar-13 11:11:51

Tuesday at 10.30 then? Where are we meeting again, Frosts? Must restrain myself from shopping, I spent £25 at Hunt. G&L yesterday and I only bought a few seeds and bits and bobs blush

Crocvillagemum Sat 02-Mar-13 14:35:29

Frosts, Tues, 1030 hours. Roger.

Becketts Mon 04-Mar-13 21:30:20

See you guys in the morning then?

GinAndIt Tue 05-Mar-13 08:14:15

yep, i'll be wearing a dark blue coat and jeans and carrying a stroppy toddler. she's tantrummed since she got up this morning so it should be interesting!

Becketts Tue 05-Mar-13 08:39:51

I'be got a stroppy 2yo so we'll be in the same boat grin I've got long dark hair and a green coat and will have 2 yo and 4 yo DDs with me.

Crocvillagemum Wed 06-Mar-13 11:29:14

Lovely to meet you ladies yesterday. (And I found some Naga jolokhia chilli seeds too, excellent!) Hope you all have a good week with your DCs smile

GinAndIt Wed 06-Mar-13 16:53:43
