Following on from the friends thread in Chat, it's time to kick off our own thread and hopefully arrange a meet up.

I'm 43, live in the borough of Sutton and like going out, eating out, music, reading (when I can), socialising, running, wine, vodka and cake. I have two infant school DCs.

Happy to meet for coffee during the day or drinks in the evening.

It's me IcaMorgan (for some reason it shows me as a different ID over here)

I live in Lee but travel to Croydon most weeks on either a tue or wed morning so am free in the afternoons from about 12.30 - 1pm

Hi, I'm 45, 2 DC's, one at secondary. I like art, reading, baking, walking, tennis. I live in Kingston.

Have been a SAHM for far too long, am trying to get back into employment but finding it very hard. Would love to meet new people and have a bit of a social life.

Sorry managed to post half a message above, please ignore!

Hi, I am new-ish to SW London definitely not been here over a year so I'm not overly sure how close you all are to me, but anyway...

I'm 25, a full time nanny and like running, eating out and gin. I'm Welsh originally but have lived all over and seriously lacking in people to socialise with due to moving a lot!

SAHM to 7 and 3yo girls here! I like having a gossip over coffee although am crap at small talk so that should probably say I like listening to other people having a gossip over coffee and if I get a bit confident I might speak blush

Am 43 and live in Epsom but have wheels will travel smile

Damn, I'm under a different name here too... I'm usually ShelaghTurner

PastaLaFeasta Tue 11-Aug-15 13:54:21

I'm just over the river but an easy bus/train ride to Richmond, Kington and probably Croydon and beyond. A (sort of) SAHM to 5y and 3y old girls.

Why Doesn't my posts show?

antimatter Wed 19-Aug-15 07:46:15

Hi everyone!
Would like to meet when we agree on a date.
I have several Uni visits with my daughter planned so some weekends will be impossible for me.

I am also running monthly book club in Wallington - PM me if interested, we meet in Wallington Arms at 7 PM once a month.

MargoReadbetter Sat 22-Aug-15 07:25:53

Antimatter - I'll pm you about the book club smile

Shall we settle a date, then people can have enough time to reschedule things if needed or come to the next meet up. Else we run the risk of postponing till suitable for all (?) and there'll still be last minute cancellations and cold feet smile

antimatter Sun 23-Aug-15 13:32:44

MargoReadbetter - I sent you PM too smile
