You are too late for the mulled wine, but fear not, we're breaking out the Easter chocolate and communion wine a bit early! smile wine

Hi everyone, I'm near Bicester- is anyone around that way?

I have a 18 month old DD. smile

Am I too late for the mulled wine?

Hi smile

I have found loads of toddler groups in kidlington. Sadley as I work full time and Josh is in nursery we can't attend them as they are all before 3pm cries

Seriously thinking of maybe starting a working mums baby/toddler group but I have no idea where to start and worried I won't have the energy sad

Hi Hailz - nice to see you here. I don't know about Kidlington itself, but I know we have at least a couple of other users from the more Northernly parts of Oxfordshire, so hopefully there's someone close to you! I know we have some pretty good listings of toddler groups around your area - at least one of them is in Kidlington itself. Have you had a look at attending those? An almost 3 year old is a good age to get out and meet other mums smile

Shyly pokes head round the door Hello, may I join you lovely ladies? I live in Kidlington, is there anyone else from here?

I have an almost 3 year old shock and moved here with my partner in July last year. I'm so desperate to meet other mums and make new friends and also for Josh to make little friends too smile

Thanks! Will PM you

I'd be happy to help you organise a meeting!

CrowmarshGibbon Wed 13-Feb-13 15:41:03

Ah, the good old fashioned wallflower. Don't worry about it, I just like to keep on the lookout for a likely candidate to help me out - it's so nice to meet mums from Mumsnet face to face. You usually find more than one kindred spirit!

DidcotDynamiteBestEverVodka Tue 12-Feb-13 12:18:41

I was browsing the local meet-ups and I thought I spotted your name, that's all. I wouldn't like to organise a meet-up, I'm working and studying at the moment so I feel I have very little spare time.

Also, I'm not a natural leader-type! At meetings, I'm the 'stand next to the door and look terrified' type! grin

CrowmarshGibbon Tue 12-Feb-13 07:16:19

I wouldn't dare! (though I do grin )
I am waiting to hear back from someone about being a local ambassador for Wallingford. She'd then run the meet ups. Why do you ask? Would you like to organise some in Didcot?

DidcotDynamiteBestEverVodka Mon 11-Feb-13 18:54:51

I'm swedish - please don't ask if I love ABBA!grin
My DDs are 6 and 2. Do you run the Wallingford local meet-ups?

CrowmarshGibbon Mon 11-Feb-13 18:21:55

Hi and welcome! How old are your daughters and whereabouts in Scandanavia? I have a Finnish friend in England and an English friend in Sweden so I'm very au fait ! wink

DidcotDynamiteBestEverVodka Mon 11-Feb-13 17:12:04

Hi, can I join? I'm another newbie (although long-term MN lurker). I live in Didcot with DP and 2 DD. I'm scandinavian, but I've lived in the UK for 13 years.

CrowmarshGibbon Thu 07-Feb-13 15:32:56

Just the one, one year old. He's a handful, but a great way to meet other mums! It's harder when you have older kids, but if you want to become a Local Ambassador you could help organise some fun meet ups in the Benson area...? Give me a shout if you're keen (we might even be able to organise some perks in the way of freebies and so on!)

And if anyone else is keen on being a Local Ambassador for their area please get in touch. The more we have, the more chance there is of getting some perks sorted out.

BensonNoHedges Wed 06-Feb-13 15:11:49

Kids are 6 and 13. How old are yours?

CrowmarshGibbon Wed 06-Feb-13 14:44:11

Aww, that's tough. Do you manage to get along to many baby groups or meet people? It's a great community round here if you can find a way in. What age(s) is/are your kid(s)?

BensonNoHedges Wed 30-Jan-13 16:39:36

Recent (November)

DH was posted to the sandpit almost as soon as we got here

I am just about starting to get my bearings to be honest

CrowmarshGibbon Wed 30-Jan-13 12:47:23

Have you been there long, or is it a recent posting?

BensonNoHedges Tue 29-Jan-13 12:33:55

I am in Benson (Base)

CrowmarshGibbon Fri 25-Jan-13 19:26:37

Ooh - a newbie! <pounces> Hello. Whereabouts are you?

BensonNoHedges Fri 25-Jan-13 12:21:09

Hello smile

Rollasara Mon 24-Dec-12 16:45:38

Oo, how exciting!

We're up in Lancashire for Christmas, it's looking very grey here, no sign of white!

CrowmarshGibbon Mon 24-Dec-12 07:17:39

Yup, and getting really good at it. he's so proud of himself - lots of triumphant squeaks!

Happy Christmas everyone - what are the chances of it's being white do you think? I reckon, since dh and I bought a sledge this year, almost nil...
