Hellooo fellow Cumbria people!

I'm Holmessweetholmes and I moved to Cumbria (near Milnthorpe) last month. There was quite an old thread with talk of a meet-up in Kendal. So does anyone fancy it?

I'm free Wednesay one week and Thursday the next (stupid two week teaching timetable! ) and have just discovered the delights of the Booths café. So who's in? smile

I'm up for that. Both days fine for me at moment! smile

holmessweetholmes Thu 13-Nov-14 17:31:42

Yay! Are you near Kendal?

Helloall1 Thu 13-Nov-14 17:32:26

Hey Holmes, how are you settling in?

Hi tops.

I am up for meeting, let me know which week as my work days change each week.

Will be good to meet new people, been here seven months now and hardly know anyone.

I'm up for joining too. On maternity leave so I'm pretty flexible.

Helloall1 Thu 13-Nov-14 17:49:41

Hey Ithackray, is Kendal ish area ok with you or would closer to Ambleside be better?

topsforshort Thu 13-Nov-14 19:09:34

I'm in Kendal. Last.month of mat leave (boo) so can go.wherever easier for all. Mornings I have one child afternoons I have both smile

lthackray Thu 13-Nov-14 19:39:17

Hi there. Am happy to do Kendal if that works best for everyone. I will have one baby with me!

Helloall1 Thu 13-Nov-14 19:46:19

Shall we set a date? smile

Holmesweetholme what day of the week are you free next week/ week after? I can do both wed and Thursday next week. Prefer mornings or afternoons, ie not lunchtime as it's pre-school pick up.

lthackray Thu 13-Nov-14 20:32:16

Hello I can't do next Thursday unfortunately so weds is best for me.

Cragbound Thu 13-Nov-14 20:35:07

I'll come too and say hello.

holmessweetholmes Thu 13-Nov-14 22:30:12

Ooh - lots of replies! I can do next Weds or the following Thurs if either of those suit anyone.

Helloall1 Fri 14-Nov-14 07:52:15

Yayyyy I can do Wednesday, earlier if possible as viewing a school at 3 grin.

Is that OK with everyone?

topsforshort Fri 14-Nov-14 09:00:35

Wednesday good for me. Morning? 10.30ish?

lthackray Fri 14-Nov-14 09:41:57

Fine for me as long as ties in with feeding. May need to arrive slightly later but will aim for 10.30. Any good cafés anyone recommends that are baby friendly?

holmessweetholmes Fri 14-Nov-14 13:10:56

How about 10:30 in the Booths café? I just discovered it yesterday. It is massive and spacious with plenty of room for pushchairs etc.

holmessweetholmes Fri 14-Nov-14 13:12:15

Dammit. MN app doesn't seem to do an e with an accent on <disapproving French teacher frown>.

lthackray Fri 14-Nov-14 13:39:24

Good for me. Should we aim for the front bit? I'll be the one with the big purple pram and cute baby (very biased mum!)

Cragbound Fri 14-Nov-14 13:49:02

I'm twice as old as any of you, I expect, and I will wear my red boots.

Helloall1 Fri 14-Nov-14 15:25:13

Sounds good to me. Can we all wear name badges with our MN names on so we spot each other wink

holmessweetholmes Fri 14-Nov-14 16:48:06

Ooh I'll wear my MN scarf! (That leopard printy one that millions of MNers bought.) Excited that we've actually arranged this at last!

I won't be able to stay for tooo long as we are getting a new puppy this Sunday <gulp> so I'd better not leave the little chap on his own for ages!

Cragbound Fri 14-Nov-14 17:27:17

Have you all got Booths cards for your free coffee ?

holmessweetholmes Fri 14-Nov-14 17:53:47

Yes indeedy, Cragbound. I love Booths! I am forcing all family and friends who come visiting from down south to go to Booths so they can marvel and be jealous grin.

topsforshort Fri 14-Nov-14 20:18:25

I'll be there with the booths card. Hopefully we'll grab the one sofa and won't be pushed out by the tens of extra tables they've added to the front part. Still, at least their more useful than the planks of wood that work there!.......
