Hi all,

So going off the 'real life friends - or lack of' Ive decided to arrange a meet for us local to derby who dont have any RL friends grin

open to all, we need to arrange a date suitable for all no mean task at all then a place who can put up with lots of ranting adults and time.

So what are people like for availability.

brew and sits comfortably to see what people put

Looking forward to the next one!

Arion Sun 16-Sep-12 17:54:06

grin thanks ninja I had a lovely time

Yay we made it and we hung around looking suitably nervous/idiotic... It was fun trying to walk upto one another and ask if we were there for the meet and hopefully not die of embarrasment asking the wrong people {we got the right people}

Headed to the park to let the DCs terrorrise burn off steam while we got to know one another, then it was time for drinks and snacks {or in my case what felt like a three course meal! very good value} more nattering time till rain halted play.

It was lovely meeting you all Kowalski, Puds11, Arion and Pink10 hopefully I didnt chew your ears off with my constant chatter {have missed adult company, could you tell?} and look forward to the next one smile

Kowalski Sun 16-Sep-12 11:25:57

Thank you Ninja!

Ninjahobbit Sun 16-Sep-12 10:21:45

OK none of them will put you in the right car park but the first one was closest, it takes you to the other car park where some might end up so if you do end up there.... dont panic.

If you type DE22 1DX that puts you on the right street, the car park is in the bottom corner and if you miss it one way you can turn the car around and head back and see it.

Hope that helps grin

will have a look at google earth and confirm for you hun smile

Kowalski Sat 15-Sep-12 22:04:14

Ok I still think I may get lost! Had a look at the website and found the following info:

•Darley Park Drive car park: Sat Nav. DE22 1EN (off Duffield Road A6 opposite the Broadway Pub)
•Darley Street car park: Sat Nav. DE22 1DX (opposite the Abbey Pub)
•City Road car park: Sat Nav. DE1 3RP (next to Parkers Piece)
•Old Chester Road car park: Sat Nav. DE1 3SA (next to Darley Fields)

Could someone confirm which car park is the right one?

Thanks smile

Pink10 Sat 15-Sep-12 17:51:09

Looking forward to this and hoping I park in the right place smile

Kowalski Sat 15-Sep-12 14:25:58

I'll just be bringing DD, DS is going to have some "lads time" with DH.

See you all tomorrow!

puds11 Sat 15-Sep-12 13:56:16

oky doky, see you then. I'm out tonight, so i'll be the one looking ropey grin

How many people are bringing children?

Ninjahobbit Sat 15-Sep-12 13:16:52

I think we set 2pm, is that still ok for everyone?

sorry to hear you might not make it jinsei hopefully next time.

Am still aiming to be at the bottom car park next to the sports field and garages. We can then walk to other car park or just wonder around looking for others who are standing/walking around looking equially as muppety as me.

puds11 Sat 15-Sep-12 12:35:15

What time are we meeting??

Jinsei Fri 14-Sep-12 21:49:34

Sorry, not sure if I'll be able to make it this Sunday. sad

Kowalski Fri 14-Sep-12 21:39:52

Fingers crossed it stays dry! Looking forward to it smile

Ninjahobbit Fri 14-Sep-12 19:02:13

woohoo weather for sunday is just rain smile watch the forecast get it wrong hmm

Ninjahobbit Wed 12-Sep-12 07:34:05

bumping it so it doesnt fall off my 'im on' page grin

Ninjahobbit Sun 09-Sep-12 18:41:49

<makes note to stand in front of grey Audi going round in circles>

Arion hush confused its bad enough with two grin

Also in answer to your question, head for the A6 towards Matlock and then follow the signs down to Darley Abbey, at the bottom there is a car park (hopefully signposted) I might check it all out before sunday to iron out details of car parks and what visual aids there are.

I wont have DCs as they will be at their dads but I wont be able to head to the pub as I will be driving hmm

Kowalski Sun 09-Sep-12 11:41:11

Or alternatively look out for a grey Audi going round in circles... :-)

Kowalski Sun 09-Sep-12 11:35:52

I have a feeling I'll end up getting lost! If you come across a strange woman looking confused and muttering to herself that will be me...

Arion Sat 08-Sep-12 23:58:32

Actually, to add to the fun, I think there's a 3rd car park at the top of the hill off Darley Park road grin

Arion Sat 08-Sep-12 23:56:37

Ninja, how do you get to the car park, is it near Chester Green, along either city road or north parade? Or do you head through Darley Abbey itself? Just looking at google maps and trying to work this out!
