Mornings are taken care of - we have so many activities/meetups that we cant do them all.
(i HAVE to get out of the house at least once in the morning and once in the afternoon, otherwise i start climbing the walls )
So far, i have Leisureworld leisure pool 3.30pm, and i will be at uni and DS will be in nursery (yikes....scared...) on Thursday afternoons, but that leaves three afternoons that need filling up with STUFFFFF.
Any suggestions? There's always mumsnet meetups of course - although the thursday lectures scuppers that one a little!
My friend takes her little boy & he loves it - she not so much as apparently the parents have to join is just as much
I don't know if they do something similar in Colchester but down here one of the HV's organises a Mum & Baby walk, we all meet up with the babies in prams at a meet point & go for long walks together - it gets us out the house, gets me exercising & the babies get lots of fresh air. The HV comes along too to sort of take charge but it's very friendly & good fun
Ta mrs M, it seems as though everything for toddlers in Colchester takes place in the mornings. He would LOVE to go to babygym more than once a week, but it only happens in the mornings and we are all booked up!
The library is doing story time at the library at 2:30, but only once a month, I think. I have the same problem, ds is the same age and we are always looking for stuff to do in the afternoon besides park and library.
Shame you're busy on a Thursday afternoon as there is a great artclub on in Shrub end.

I'm definitely trying the curry tonight, with DS i was having weak contractions on friday but nothing on saturday. I had a curry saturday night and woke up in labour on sunday morning. Just need to wait for DP to get home tonight as I have no car to get to the shop.
Pooter - Friday Club isn't on at the moment. Not sure where you found that, Twims - on the internet, I assume? They actually changed the time to the morning last year (we used to go!) and its not on at the moment cos the organiser has just had a baby.
Whats the art club in Shrub End (Not exactly sure where Shrub End is anyway but ...
oh pants - i was looking forward to friday club! Thanks for the warning SP . DH and i took DS to the new playground at the weekend - its way too far to walk from here, but its really good isnt it! I went on most things, but the weird whirly yellow cup thing got out of control with me, and i whizzed round so fast my shoes flew off in opposite directions and DH had to rescue me! I had to rescue two children too! But its great!!
glad you enjoyed the zoo. my kids love it and we often pop down there in the afternoon to waste away a couple of hours feeding the giraffes and playing in the park areas! have to meet you (and maybe some other gold card holders!!) down there some time.
