Hello! I am originally from the Central Belt but have lived just north of Inverness since 2001, I often wonder how many mumsnetters are in this neck of the woods, cos these local boards are soooo quiet.

come on, say hello and lets see how many of us there are.

I'll join you for a bump grin

How are you and yours anyway?

beautifulday Sun 09-Nov-08 16:25:15

I'm in Inverness!

IAteMakkaPakka Sun 09-Nov-08 16:30:14

Hmmm, yes, I think I need to work a bit harder on the viral marketing ... grin

Hiya beautifulday - is it beautiful? We've had snow today, it's bloody freezing!

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 20:13:52

so there are three of us? NOw I know there are more - where are all you highlanders? I'm gonna keep bumping this until you all come out from under those duvets!

Hullo IAtemakkapakka - we're all doing fine although my little madam is turning in to a right little madam!!!

BeautifulDay - hello! nice to meet you <<shakes hand>> have you been a mumsnetter for long?

Wallace Sun 09-Nov-08 20:20:40

<<<Wallace creeps out from under duvet>>> brrrrrrrr hello

I'm South of Inverness. D

Did the meet up at bumbles go ahead? I was disappointed to miss it.

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 20:22:31

yes it did go ahead - there were 3 of us, but it was really nice. We must arrange another one soon actually. Runaround in Dingwall is now open on Fridays, so that is an option.

Wallace Sun 09-Nov-08 20:28:29

So no Hairy-handed Truckers then? grin

Dingwall would be okay for me too. REmind me how old are your kids?

IAteMakkaPakka Sun 09-Nov-08 20:30:12

Another one, blimey, hidden legions or what?

Bumbles was great, miniMakka had a blast. We were sorry you couldn't come too Wallace

Runaround would be good to investigate sometime. I'm free this Friday but judging by the mammoth task that was coordinating the last (3 person!) meet, I suspect that won't suit the rest of you ... grin

I might spend the day wearing a Mumsnet sandwich board and wandering up and down the Eastgate instead

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 20:31:42

grin I could do Runaround this Friday....

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 20:34:39

Walace - my 2 are 2.5 and 5. How old are yours?

IAteMakkaPakka Sun 09-Nov-08 20:36:17

Well I'm up for a meet if you fancy it. What time does it kick off there?

DS is 15 months Wallace - IIRC yours is 2?

Wallace Sun 09-Nov-08 20:37:18

Oops just realsied you said fridays - older kids finish school at 12.45 on Fridays so not so good for me blush I do have a friend who could pick them up but only eery other week.

This friday would be out anyway as it has just occured to me that from Tueday I no longer hae a car shock mine is kaput so hae been using PIL's and they want it back (hoe dare they! angry)

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 20:37:50

Fridays are 10am - 1.30pm

Wallace Sun 09-Nov-08 20:38:08

yup ds2 is 2, ds1 is 9, dd is 7

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 20:38:47

sad wallace not again smile

IAteMakkaPakka Sun 09-Nov-08 20:41:53

Wallace, I hope I'm right in thinking you're pretty local to me - if your friend could collect your older kids this Friday I could take you up

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 21:24:13

go on wallace - we won't bite!

jenaegi Sun 09-Nov-08 21:26:48

Flier Sun 09-Nov-08 22:15:34
