Shall we arrange another meet up before the school hols or is it too soon for you guys?

Has the Leek recovered, Cariboo?

Niftyblue Mon 08-Feb-10 11:50:13

If next week is easier then thats fine to

MmeLindt Mon 08-Feb-10 12:21:26

I am can do a quick drink on Wednesday (providing DH gets home on time) or next week, whatever suits the rest of you.

strudelface Mon 08-Feb-10 12:26:38

Shall we say next week then and that gives time to get the others on board and think of a venue

Niftyblue Mon 08-Feb-10 12:38:42

I can do any week this or next
Let me know what suits

Off for another can of red bull
Have wine in for when my little cherubs are in bed tonight grin

TheMysticMasseuse Mon 08-Feb-10 13:18:55

Cadmum Mon 08-Feb-10 13:57:28

I could probably make Wednesday work but next week would be better.

Sorry Mystic.... I hope to meet you before our departure in mid-March.

kreecherlivesupstairs Tue 09-Feb-10 08:48:23

envy, why do you people over that side of the country have more interest than us Central CH'rs?

MmeLindt Tue 09-Feb-10 09:08:42

Ah, we have more wine here, and the French influence.

And I guess there are just more of us here.

You are welcome to come over and join our meet up, Kreecher.

strudelface Tue 09-Feb-10 13:01:24

lol at we have more wine here

(well they did until we started having meet-upsgrin)

Kreecher how far away are you? Could you come over for a day and then we could do a lunch meet-up.

TheMysticMasseuse Tue 09-Feb-10 15:47:58

I was having lunch with a friend and complained about Geneva being too rigid etc and he said, you should try go out to Zug, they are the real capitalists, and look at genevois as some half wits mediterranean types grin

cariboo Wed 10-Feb-10 09:12:32

Kreecher, I always think the same of Expat-Moms-In-Switzerland. They almost never have anything going on in Suisse romande grin. Come & have a "minestrone" with us!

MmeLindt Wed 10-Feb-10 18:28:56

It depends on what you are used to I guess, MM.

Coming from Germany, I find the Suisse very very relaxed.

Was over in Petit Lancy today, wanted to try out the new Aldi. Did not realise that today was the grand opening of the new Hypermarché. It was packed. Aldi not bad though, cheaper than most places.

strudelface Wed 10-Feb-10 18:36:27

I've got lost trying to find that Aldi and the parking is a bit grim and the roadworks all around didn't make for a pleasant experience. But will have to go again shortly for the peppermint tea bags - in France all mint tea is with green tea -yuck.

MmeLindt Wed 10-Feb-10 19:07:14

It was utter chaos today, Strudel. The car park is badly designed (says city planner MmeLindt) and the roadworks are atrocious.

Is there a road anywhere in Geneva without roadworks at the moment?

Niftyblue Wed 10-Feb-10 21:39:28

Kreecher you could come and vist
Or we could come to you

here I blame the air its wine and cheese grin

TheMysticMasseuse Thu 11-Feb-10 11:28:41

so did you lovely vegetables ladies met up last night? or should we try for anotehr date? what about first week of March?

Cadmum Thu 11-Feb-10 21:33:38

The first week of March would be great for me. (I might even feel human again by then.) smile

Niftyblue Fri 12-Feb-10 16:05:38

Thought it was next week we were going out?

Let me know
I can do the first week in March if its NOT

Have a good weekend
I know we live here in the land of cheese and chocolate and all that and I know I should expect SNOW
BUT I wish it would stop !!!

MmeLindt Fri 12-Feb-10 16:08:06

I can do next week, but not Wednesday as my parents arrive that day.

strudelface Fri 12-Feb-10 16:20:39

I can do next week too - not fussed about day.

Cariboo are you free?

And why has Kreecher ignored our offers of a meet-up? You've scared her off with all this vegetable talk I reckon.

Niftyblue Sat 13-Feb-10 12:36:29

I can do any nite but Thursday

strudelface Sat 13-Feb-10 16:02:27

Okay so Mon/Tues

Shall we say Tues evening?

TheMysticMasseuse Sat 13-Feb-10 16:05:49

I am fed up of the snow as well!!!!

sorry won't be able to meet you next week

strudelface Sat 13-Feb-10 16:08:57

We can meet again first week of March MM.

Snow's great grin we are back from our first foray into skiing and no broken limbs to report - which is a plus I feel.

Niftyblue Sat 13-Feb-10 16:39:52

I can do Tuesday

glad you had a good time Strudel grin
