Hi Girls

I've new to Mumsnet and to the Inverness area, we moved up here between Christmas and new year!!!! I'm 36 and have Boy/girl twins who will be 2 in March, would be really good to hear from people who are local as I know absolutely no-one up here!
Also it would be great to have recommnetdations of places to visit that are Kid friendly and does anyone know where there is a duck pond as my little girl loves ducks and is missing feeding them!

Thanks very much

I felt the same not long after moving here, that first sight of the kessock bridge and its a deep sigh and you feel like you're home smile

Rach1972 Sat 14-Mar-09 18:20:22

Flier Fri 13-Mar-09 19:21:05

Hi Rach, did you have a nice trip?

Rach1972 Wed 11-Mar-09 19:40:31

oo Cek that sounds exciting let us know how it goes and definately keep in contact, it really helps to have a freindly face when settling in a new area!

Flier Thu 05-Mar-09 10:07:50

Hello Cek, hope all goes well with your house offer today. My dd is 2, will be 3 in May, I will be registering her for pre-school in the next week or so (eek!). Anyway, keep in touch.
Fingers crossed for you today x

cek Thu 05-Mar-09 09:50:02

hi all..

dont know if your still checking in here. Think were excepting an offer in the house today !! which may mean were on our way by May ish..Definately like the idea of the shopping / girly bit as have a lovely network of mums ive seen weekly since DS was born that I miss even thinking about it. Also must find out about things for DS..Will keep you all posted and thanks for words of encouragement and stories. Its a comfort.

Flier Thu 12-Feb-09 15:26:19

aww thanks Rach, I was on a bit of a downer, was dreading picking DS up from school, I think that's what was praying on my mind. Thankfully, he had a better, more well behaved day at school yesterday smile
Probably a bit of PMT too grin

Sorry you've done your back in - I don't remember seeing you fall over DS shock
I take it you were snowed in again thsi am? another day off work? Hope so, hope you managed to get a sledge yesterday smile
I'll try to CAT yuo, as I've paid

Won't see you on Wed, DS at hospital.

Rach1972 Wed 11-Feb-09 11:50:11

Flier - you really didn't seem yourself this morning is there anything I can do to help? I'm very good a tea and constructive sympathy even better at wine and sympathy (though it probably wouldn't be as constructivewink) Not going to aerobics tonight as i pulled my back when I fell over DS at playgroup! Just tried to PM you my Mob Num but It wont let me unless I subscribe!!!!!!!

Rach1972 Sat 07-Feb-09 19:56:03

My brain is mush hun and I'm back at work, there is no hope for us once we have had children!
Our garden is a big hill, we had the critters out there today on trays as we don't have a sledge!!!!! DS thought it was brill!
Good on you with the snowman, I made a rather pathetic speciman on thursday as we couldn't get out to go to work!

Flier Fri 06-Feb-09 13:48:59

Good for you Rach! School was closed yesterday so eldest was off, we went to the park and I was the only one rolling the snow for the snowman, my back is killing me grin I am so unfit. DS had a great time sledging too.
me local? gosh no! only been here 8 years this summer grin Cannot believe it is 8 years alraedy though shock
I have found it hard to make friends because I haven't actually worked since being here, (well I worked from home before dcs came along), and my brain is still mush from being a sahm sad

Rach1972 Fri 06-Feb-09 13:03:09

Flier - Yes i went even though it was snowing! How good am I!!!!!! Flipping Ache today though! I expect to see you there next week didn't realise you are not local? I've managed to find myself a great babysitter already! wink

Cek - good to hear from you again, i'm sure you will love it up here particulary as you have family in the area! I'd be lying if i said i wasn't a bit homesick but overall its brilliant. I just need to make freinds i can be girly with i.e. Shopping and drinking wine! Not Tried Fortrose Toddlers as its a day I work!

Vjay - good to hear from you hun, so sorry to hear about the MCs they are soul destroying I had 1 after having IVF to get pregnant so I soem idea how you are feeling, I was totally paranoind when I was pregnant but I think the further on you get the easier it becomes, I will keep everything crossed for you

VJay Thu 05-Feb-09 19:33:44

I live in Nairn, so yes will be giving birth in Raigmore. To be honest I've not thought beyond getting past this first trimester yet, but I do know it will be Raigmore.

Flier Thu 05-Feb-09 12:03:52

ah, VJay welcome, welcome! Glad you managed to find us grin. Congrats on your pg. How far from Inverness are you? ie Will you give birth at Raigmore Hospital?

VJay Thu 05-Feb-09 11:50:35

Hello, I've been prompted by flier to say hello. I joined mn after my mc's,I had one in June and one in October last year, so I've been on those boards mainly. Now I'm pregnant again, 11 weeks today, and an absolute nervous wreck!
I've lived up here for nearly 3 years now, I come from Cheshire.
So hello grin <vjay waves madly>

Flier Thu 05-Feb-09 08:23:27

much family hmm

Flier Thu 05-Feb-09 08:22:58

Flier Thu 05-Feb-09 08:22:27

Flier Thu 05-Feb-09 08:21:22

Rach did you go? grin

cek Wed 04-Feb-09 21:50:20

Didnt book mark the website and then took ages to navigate my way back to this chat. Sure im getting too old ! Thats nice that your near. I hoped it would be easy to have a few new connections before I moved up and looks possible already which is a relief. We have to sell the house first though so might be a while. Have you tried the Fortrose sport centre pre school thing? It was the only place i could find on line.. I did get a massive list of church hall toddler groups sent to me though. Ill definatley keep in touch . I cant really work out what its going to be like to up sticks. Positives and negative every where I look. Sounds like we all need to get together and set up a big soft play centre though hey! speak soon

Rach1972 Sat 31-Jan-09 21:50:42

Yep I should be there

Flier Thu 29-Jan-09 20:27:32

Thats a shame, never mind.
Glad you're feeling better though. See you on Wednesday at toddlers?

Rach1972 Thu 29-Jan-09 19:31:03

Hi Flier
I work Fridays but thanks for the offer thats really nice of you, I'm feeling much better today and keep telling myself its going to take time but when you've got raging PMT its hard to be rational !!!! LOL

Flier Wed 28-Jan-09 13:06:21

didn't think you were your normal self! Maybe I should have arranged for us to meet up and go feed the ducks? Can't remember if you work Fridays? Could do Friday morning?
