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

Becketts Wed 06-Mar-13 17:20:16

When's the next cake meet up then? grin

Crocvillagemum Wed 06-Mar-13 20:54:18

Whenever you like! Shall we try Johnson's and suffer Death By Chocolate cake?

Becketts Wed 06-Mar-13 21:09:17

Absolutely, I want a re-match against that cake. This time victory is mine!

Crocvillagemum Wed 06-Mar-13 21:54:36

Looking back upthread there were a couple of others keen for a cake session. I'll PM them as and when we moot a date.

Was going to pop along as turns out visitors had made separate plans for lunch that day, but then DS2 developed croup in the night.

We've not had it before, I didn't even know it was something you could get in this day and age, but I have read Anne of Green Gables often enough to be a little anxious... Anyway, he was fine but we stayed at home to recuperate.

Crocvillagemum Thu 07-Mar-13 11:23:57

Ooh minor, your poor DS! Quick trip to OOOGP for steroids? All the mums I know have had at least one kid who's developed it. Not mine though, yet wipes brow How's he doing now?

CambridgeMinor Thu 07-Mar-13 16:12:11

No, thanks, luckily wasn't bad enough for the GP. It was just the one bad night of barking. My mum was staying over and thought she'd heard a fox in the night, but assured her it was just DS2.

hi, tentatively sitting on the edge of the bench... I'm St Ives way and have two DCs.

Becketts Fri 08-Mar-13 14:11:27

Hi godolphin <waves>. I'm in Sawtry, I have two DDs. Would you like to come to the next meet?

MyFancyPants Fri 08-Mar-13 22:13:12

I've only just noticed this thread, but I am near to St Ives and have one dc.

Crocvillagemum Fri 08-Mar-13 22:55:28

Hello pants and godolphin. Hey, at this rate we'll soon have enough for a game of five-a-side! I live just south of Warboys and have one of each flavour DC.

GinAndIt Wed 13-Mar-13 16:34:10

anyone around for a meetup next monday or tuesday?

Becketts Wed 13-Mar-13 16:56:01

Both are free in my diary. Shall we do Tuesday? Loads of things are closed on Mondays. Do you know Johnson's?

GinAndIt Wed 13-Mar-13 18:51:20

No, whereabouts is it?

Crocvillagemum Wed 13-Mar-13 21:20:01

I can do Tues :-) May give DS a treat and keep him out of nursery.... Johnson's is in Old Hurst. The one with the crocodiles.

Becketts Wed 13-Mar-13 21:44:37

Johnson's. Let's hope it's playground weather!

CambridgeMinor Thu 14-Mar-13 08:37:14

Hello, is 10.30 still a good time for people?

Becketts Thu 14-Mar-13 09:57:31

10.30 suits us.

Crocvillagemum Sun 17-Mar-13 19:52:45

Hi all. Unfortunately I can't now come on Tues - rescheduled ultrasound appointment (no, don't get excited - it's to look for gallstones). I'll see you at the next one. Don't forget your shovel for the cake!

Becketts Sun 17-Mar-13 19:56:50

Are you going to find out if it's a boy gallstone or a girl gallstone?

Sorry you can't make it, we'll do another one in a couple of weeks.

Crocvillagemum Sun 17-Mar-13 21:59:04

I suspect I may well have one of each. Or even quads.

Becketts Sun 17-Mar-13 22:18:45

I shall start knitting cardigans for them.

Becketts Mon 18-Mar-13 08:22:06

Uh oh, I may have to cry off. DD2's been up all night with a D&V bug and it's still going on this morning sad On the plus side, I'm really glad that I was waiting for the summer for potty training...

CambridgeMinor Mon 18-Mar-13 08:45:18

Sorry to hear that Croc, that can't be pleasant.

Hope your DD is feeling better soon Becketts and also that you don't get it.

Anyone else around tomorrow or shall we postpone?

GinAndIt Mon 18-Mar-13 18:59:30

I don't mind postponing if it's easier. Amy is having a strop over every little thing at the moment so keeping her away from other people is probably for the best at the moment!
