Hi All.

I am new to Winchester and looking to make some friends.

DC 3.9 and I have been to several groups/activities in the area since moving but haven't yet found any friends (or people who want to talk to us sad )

Would be lovely to meet some others in the Winchester area.

Afternoons are good for us too, except Thursdays. Any time really after 2pm, as long as we are home by about 5pm otherwise DS gets very hungry and amazingly grumpy indeed!

MogandMe Wed 14-Sep-11 17:50:15

I'm away for the next 2 weeks so shall we say the 1st week of October?

prolificwillybreeder Wed 14-Sep-11 18:02:54

1st Oct sounds good. You said cake, I'm sure cake was mentioned!

prolificwillybreeder Wed 14-Sep-11 18:03:27

Sorry first week of Oct. I got carried away once cake was mentioned!

prolificwillybreeder Wed 14-Sep-11 18:05:06

I'll give DS1 a big lunch so as long as home for 5 should be fine.
He'll probably will want some cake, the cheeky thing!

mistressploppy Wed 14-Sep-11 19:01:01

I'm away 'til 2nd Oct so count me in for first week of Oct sometime!

Scan went well, especially when she ORDERED me to go and get a coffee and a chocolate bar to get the baby to move to a better position! I think I might have spotted a willy but can't be sure....grin

prolificwillybreeder Thu 15-Sep-11 12:33:54

Eek! Exciting! Oh no I'm already starting to get a tiny bit of bump envy.
I was ordered to do the same thing with ds1.

So which day would be good? Would a Wednesday be good?

mistressploppy Thu 15-Sep-11 12:37:57

Wednesday is good for me - that's the 5th, right? Maybe, 2.30ish?

Amber77 Thu 15-Sep-11 14:30:59

Cant make the 5th Oct - shame. If you do decide to meet again then please let me know. BTW, does anybody know how to send personal messages here? I have an 'inbox' but dont know how it works. It would be good if we could exchange numbers & keep in touch smile

CurwySwide Thu 15-Sep-11 17:33:34

Perhaps we could do Tuesday 4 Oct (same time, same place) so Amber can make it too?

mistressploppy Thu 15-Sep-11 19:58:28

I can do Tuesday too <no life grin>

mistressploppy Thu 15-Sep-11 19:59:36

Amber, just look to the left of any poster's name - it says Message Poster. Click that and scribble away!

mistressploppy Thu 15-Sep-11 19:59:55

RIGHT! The RIGHT of any poster's name!

prolificwillybreeder Thu 15-Sep-11 20:15:32

Tuesday is great smile
I just did Aqua Zumba... 8 weeks post natal. I am mad! Seeing women in their 60's doing it though was great.

CurwySwide Thu 15-Sep-11 20:44:24

Tuesday it is then by the sound of it? How will we recognise each other? Should we carry a newspaper tucked up under one arm or similar? grin

prolificwillybreeder Thu 15-Sep-11 20:53:32

Haha I can tuck a paper under my arm. Do we need a hand code?
I'll be easy to recognise: the exhausted, awkward looking one pushing a P&T.

MogandMe Thu 15-Sep-11 21:04:15

Tuesday sounds good smile

mistressploppy Thu 15-Sep-11 21:07:36


I'll be the very tall chunky one in the Ebay scarf blush

mistressploppy Thu 15-Sep-11 21:09:21

So we have:


Any other takers? grin

If we get a list sorted then we can pm mobile numbers around if we want to

prolificwillybreeder Fri 16-Sep-11 14:47:45

You know I'm sure I saw someone in Sainsburys BadgerFarn with the eBay scarf the other day and did think ' ooh a mumsnetter?' couldn't see too well though as DS2 promptly covered me in milk sick- nice!

Amber77 Fri 16-Sep-11 22:41:18

Hey all, just logged on & seen the meeting is now 4th Oct - I'll be there too!! Love the newspaper idea : )

missingwine Sun 18-Sep-11 08:13:04

Yay; just found this thread in time for cake! I'd like to meet up too, as I'm currently living in Chandler's Ford with DH & DS who's 3, but moving to Winchester in the next couple of months. If we're meeting on a Tuesday, I'll be able to eat all of my cake without having to share as James is at nursery all day grin

prolificwillybreeder Sun 18-Sep-11 08:48:09

Missingwine I'm in CF too! But moving next month.
I'll have to share my cake <sigh!> No one warned me about having to share cake when I became a mother!

MogandMe Sun 18-Sep-11 15:43:29

I am a mean nanny - I don't share cake grin

Good to know there's another 3 year old boy out there missingwine we're desperatley seeking 3 year old boys to play with smile

Sariska Mon 19-Sep-11 14:46:20

Just found this thread (was on the original one on the Property board). Would also like to meet up but sadly cannot do a Tuesday pm (unless it was before 3pm) so please someone PM me if there's another meet up. Usually I think I could do any time except Tuesday pm! <Typical emoticon>

I am another one with a 3 yo boy (3.6 to be accurate). And an 18 mo DD.

Oh, and I have the eBay scarf (in brown). Love it!
