So there seems to be some interest on Twitter for a meet-up in York/surrounds. Who's would like to join in? It seems logical that we wait for schools to start again and a morning in the week would suit me best.

Is anyone interested in a summer holiday meet-up?

It was lovely to see some of you last week. We would definitely be up for a meet up over summer. We have been to the Pizza Farm. The pizza was very tasty!!

Sounds like it was a lovely, cathartic, ceremony smile

TBH I didn't realise he was the Archbishop until I was walking to my car, I passed them a few times in the aisles and he look so familiar, but I couldn't place him. It was only when I was unloading the trolley and he was taking his stuff to the car that it clicked blush

got most things done. memorial was wonderful/heartbreaking. Lots of tears, kids reading out poems about head teach, reception kids singing Happy Sun High, dressed as flowers; choir sang 'Your Song' we lost it a bit there. sad.

Sorry to miss today - spent the morning haring around after students and trying to finish reports.
Nice to see you briefly REALMBJ. I didn't spot the Archbish til later. Had a nice cup of coffee and a sit down before shopping.
WWould be up for something in the holidays but may have 3 bigger ones in tow as well.

TheRealMBJ Fri 15-Jul-11 18:20:24

Hope you got all your jobs done and that the memorial went well.

Hope to see you soon.

oh I missed you guys sad but glad you had a nice timesmile x

The pizza farm is a play-farm with a pizza oven grin. I've never been but it looks ace.

He must be hosting a BBQ or something as he was buying large amounts of chicken pieces and salad ingredients grin. He had a shop assistant helping him, and it looked like he had never done something like this before. Perhaps his wife is away?

SybilBeddows Fri 15-Jul-11 14:16:15

what was the Archbishop buying?

SybilBeddows Fri 15-Jul-11 14:15:35

the pizza farm?! do they grow on trees?

we're away a lot over the summer hols, I'm likely to not make the next one either sad

TheRealMBJ Fri 15-Jul-11 14:10:18

Ouch sad Wr missed you and Lawrie. It wad lovely meeting yank and .skunk* and seeing deadley again.

I bumped into pearlgirl afterwards (while watching the Archbishop do a grocery shop)grin

Let's definitely arrange something for the summer. Perhaps a day-out? Like a trip to the pizza farm? Or even something in your direction Sybil

SybilBeddows Fri 15-Jul-11 13:04:04

hello, I'm so sorry I missed it, I have had to stay to supervise the builders. (There are 3 of them now! And they still haven't finished! And because this was an emergency call-out rather than a normal 'getting quotes' situation we have no idea what it's going to cost. Yikes.)

FunkySkunk Fri 15-Jul-11 10:45:46

I am here, under a tree for any that are already here, am surrounded by running, squealing girls

LawrieMarlow Fri 15-Jul-11 09:33:32

I have no children by the way. Well I do but they are safely at school smile

LawrieMarlow Fri 15-Jul-11 09:33:00

I might get some biscuits on the way <useless emoticon>

FunkySkunk Fri 15-Jul-11 09:29:38

I haven't made any food, as was in blue-arsed fly mode yesterday. But we will bring happy smiley faces and joy etc with us grin. We need to be off for 11.30ish as we have great-nana to visit too today. See you all in an hour

TheRealMBJ Fri 15-Jul-11 08:32:26

Weather looks fab. So no need to worry about indoors. See you all at the picnic.

TheRealMBJ Fri 15-Jul-11 06:00:25

I'll (obviously) have DS with me. And a picnic. Haven't managed to bake anything though.

yankeedoodledo Thu 14-Jul-11 23:04:10

Sounds good. I'll have two dd's with me and some picnicky things. If we end up in the library, we can eat by the cafe.
I regret we have to leave shortly after 12 but I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

TheRealMBJ Thu 14-Jul-11 22:40:29

Library it is then! It is closer to my parking spot.

So, if it rains (fingers crossed it doesn't) we'll meet in the library cafe.


TheRealMBJ Thu 14-Jul-11 22:23:15

Library is good, although we've never been to the Railway museum.
