Settle in with me this cold and blustery November evening for... what else? Tea and tunnocks.

Although, if you prefer wine then I am happy to join you for a glass or two

How many Dundee based MNetters do we have then? And who would be interested in joining in the MumsnetDundee site, sharing tips and ideas, recommending child friendly cafes and restaurants (and great places to escape the DC for an evening).

The wind is whistling through the local site like a gale down the Hilltown. It would be great to fill it with fun events and perhaps the odd meet-up.

You can keep up with MumsnetDundee on Twitter and Facebook

Brrrr, how COLD is it?? Up here in the north of the city 'tis brass monkeys. We had about an inch of snow this morning too shock

Am also hoping to come along on Wednesday, although I've officially given up on crafts after an ill-fated recent attempt to revive my knitting skills grin

TeaAndTunnocks Mon 03-Dec-12 21:44:24

Just a wee reminder that the Xmas Craft Meet Up is this week. Don't forget to sign up.

TeaAndTunnocks Mon 03-Dec-12 21:45:44

Doh link

It is really cold tonight. I have had to shift my desk away from the windows as my feet were like blocks of ice. I am now huddled up next to the radiator.

It was either shift the desk of buy a onesie shock

Oh, and I forgot the reason I actually popped onto the thread - to say I've posted a wee review of Verdant Works!

I don't want to blow my own horn, but I managed to be quite a Good Mummy during the recent inservice days - actually took them out and about instead of parking them in front of Disney for three days wink

TeaAndTunnocks Mon 03-Dec-12 21:52:09

I have just tweeted it. Looks like it was an interesting trip. Would you say it was more suited for adults and older DC then?

[gold star] for taking the DC to educational places during days off school. I do hope they have talked to their school teachers about it.

TeaAndTunnocks Tue 04-Dec-12 11:47:46

Morning all.

Did you all see the thread about Local Ambassadors - we need one for as many areas as possible and there will be great perks for you.

Jessie's Kitchen have already indicated that they'd be kind to our LA for B Ferry <dangles bait>

grin

TeaAndTunnocks Wed 05-Dec-12 07:41:49

Morning. Do we have a head count of those coming to the meet up tonight?

Errolite Wed 05-Dec-12 10:57:04

Me I think, although I don't know anyone so be kind!

TeaAndTunnocks Wed 05-Dec-12 11:15:10

We are all strangers, errol so don't worry about that.

If anyone is worried that they don't know anyone or that we are all pals - we aren't. I know some of the MNetters in the area but not all who are coming tonight

And that's what it's all about. Meeting with other people in the area.

I don't know about you guys, but I've found that I don't have a lot in common with some of my old friends and its difficult to meet new people.

TeaAndTunnocks Thu 06-Dec-12 10:21:56

Morning all. Was really lovely to meet you last night. Were your families impressed by your work?

I've had the joiner in this morning to talk walls and doors and floors. Not to mention windows.

What are you all up to today?

Pehsandbridies Fri 07-Dec-12 20:54:08

DH put our wee plastic tree up today and my felt heart takes pride of place on the tree along with a bauble DD made at art class today!

Tempted to return to make something else, but DH's shifts will probably get in the way.

Ordered the 3lb steak pie for new years day today, yummy!

TeaAndTunnocks Fri 07-Dec-12 23:17:46

We are putting our tree up this weekend, I think.

Did you all see that H is offering more classes. I might go along one evening with my DD if we can fit it in. Maybe even take my mum. That would be lovely.

A peh for New Year sounds good. We are going to find a whole load of new traditions, I think.

MuirheadMafia Sun 09-Dec-12 20:43:05

Tree is up at our house too! DD1, who's 6, pretty much took charge and dressed most of it with some 'help' from DD2 (2.5) as I was busy making a cake/dinner and DH has got man-flu and hasn't strayed far from the sofa for the past two days hmm

Anyway, it looks great and I'm feeling even more Christmassy now!

Craft night was good fun - I surprised myself by completing a felt stocking, so now it's hanging from my work noticeboard in a vague attempt to make my desk look festive.

I may have recruited someone else to be a Local Ambassador - I'm sending her a link to the site etc so hopefully she will be in touch soon Tea.

Am off to Birmingham for work for the next 2 days - must go and finish packing, am having a wordrobe 'mare! confused

Headinagoodbook Sun 09-Dec-12 20:54:40

Hiya! I'm so excited to find this - dundee mn! Woo!
Will have to start looking out for mnetters in the street now!
Hello everyone!(waves manically!)

WrongSideoftheBridge Sun 09-Dec-12 21:00:25

<waves to head)

We'll have to get some sort of secret signal. In my case a really badly made Christmas decoration.

MuirheadMafia Sun 09-Dec-12 21:02:06

Hello headinagoodbook! <waves back>

We'll be the ones walking down the street holding pombears and wearing judgeypants grin

Headinagoodbook Sun 09-Dec-12 21:29:41

Judgeypants hoiked, pom bears at ready, fruit shoot in pocket
(nods sagely)

TeaAndTunnocks Mon 10-Dec-12 14:31:05

Hello headinabook (that sounds like me)

Hope you have a good time in B'ham, Muirhead. Would love to have more LAs - we should organise a LA coffee and cake chat so I can explain what it's all about.

Pehsandbridies Mon 10-Dec-12 15:40:28

Hello headinagoodbook <wave>

Has anyone else seen the gingerbread wifie that H posted on her facebook page, I now need to go back and sew one of those! I managed a heart and a stocking, and want the complete set.

I saw a packet of pickled onion pombears in the bin at work! I giggled and then glanced around the floor to see if anyone was watching me giggle!

Errolite Mon 10-Dec-12 16:18:29

I did was bonny that little gingerbread man smile

We've come to the sad realisation that a one year old tornado and the Xmas tree would be a bad combination hmm no tinsel in this household this year

DixieDust Mon 10-Dec-12 22:00:27

Tree up - I now need a week off. DC free. And a lie down in a dark dark room. With alcohol.

TeaAndTunnocks Tue 11-Dec-12 22:47:51

ooh, sorry guys. Not been around much recently. It has been absolutely manic here. As ever. Last week of work, and I have done NO prep for Xmas. Eek.

Yes, I like the gingerbread man too. Must hang my wee stockings on the tree

WrongSideoftheBridge Wed 12-Dec-12 16:58:56

Doing some Christmas shopping today...there are some lovely new shops! Lovely Things on Dock Street and Rosy Tuesday across from the DCA. I could have maxed my credit card easily!!

DixieDust Fri 14-Dec-12 17:41:20

Lovely Things is FAB-U-LOUS, if you don't follow her on FB you should, she's hysterical! Rosy Tuesdays pretty too but the fashion a touch too young & skinny for me <gah>

Pehsandbridies Sun 16-Dec-12 18:31:26

It was all go in our household today, I seem to be getting other peoples shopping now as well as my own! Was in tesco riverside today, making good use of SIL's discount card, and it was so quiet got parked right at the door, was expecting it to be mobbed.

Anyone been to Little Pinata in the ferry, looking for recommendations!
