Thought I'd be premature and create this thread now.

Currently have this meet up planned:

13th Jan - Miss Tina's in Washington

Indith Councils are training up a lot of new childminders right now, ready for the increased 2yo free provision, so the minder you pick now doesn't have to be permanent. I know round us there's a new cohort of 10ish two or three times per year, and many have previous childcare experience

Any one free for coffee in Durham on 25th April morning?

LeggyBlondeNE Tue 15-Apr-14 15:14:45

VikingLady Tue 15-Apr-14 17:08:26

sad I can't do Fridays I'm afraid. I've swapped DD's nursery days to Tuesday and Fridays to help out a new bfing group on a Friday.

juneybean Sun 20-Apr-14 18:22:17

Aww boo trip sad

Thanks spiggy!

Can I pencil in 10am at Slug for any one that can make it?

juneybean Tue 22-Apr-14 14:42:35

I made a blog about my journey if anyone fancies reading such things?!

VikingLady Wed 23-Apr-14 21:17:18

10am at the Slug. Good. It's on the calendar. God knows how DD will behave, but if she is an absolute nightmare (just hit terrible twos/ASD really starting to develop) I'll bow out early/lock her in a toilet cubicle/something.

I may have wine grin

LeggyBlondeNE Thu 24-Apr-14 14:26:38

Damnit, A was off nursery unwell on Tueday and I'm way behind on work, and J has buggered his back so no hope of an evening off to catch up with work. Slug is too far from office to justify tomorrow alas.


VikingLady Fri 25-Apr-14 07:52:03

Still just 2 of us?

Indith Fri 25-Apr-14 09:35:42

I'm ending up at the botanics this morning with the oiks! Can't face all 3 of them at the slug. If you fancy changing location though that's where we'll be. smile .

VikingLady Fri 25-Apr-14 17:34:45

If we'd seen it in time! The Slug has a kids section now with drawing stuff and a play tent smile

But there was no coffee. I feel an epic complaints letter coming on....

Indith Fri 25-Apr-14 18:47:22

play area sounds lovely. We had a good explore. ds2 has a lovely temp now sad

VikingLady Sat 26-Apr-14 19:30:54

Is anyone thinking about a Botanics meet up at some point?

juneybean Mon 28-Apr-14 22:37:36

Fingers crossed, think I'm going to put an offer on a house for me and babybean tomorrow shock

So scared that'll offend the lovely old couple because I'm going to start cheekily low...

MrsTripTucker Tue 29-Apr-14 09:38:27

Good luck, Juney!!

Viking - how about next week? I could do Wednesday or Thursday?

juneybean Tue 06-May-14 19:38:33

MrsTripTucker Tue 06-May-14 20:37:49
