Hi all. I'm from Yate & would love to meet up with some other mums in the area. Moved here from London a few yrs ago. I have a very active 2yo. I work part time but I'm free on Mon & Fri's. I have only felt like murdering my hubby with an axe on a few occasions , but apart from that I am quite sane!!
Sounds like friday might be a good day. How about the one after half term, in the morning?
This friday C has several appointments (nothing like a all-day hospital extraveganza to make one feel like an axe-murderer). Half term could be a hideous nightmare!
Maybe Castaways down in Kingswood?
They have a cafe, play area and soft mats for DD to lie on.
ooh, how exciting, haven't looked at this thread for ages and there are lots of messages (thanks to TheArmadillo and F@F for confirming my non axe murderer status). I'm in St George, so walkable to Kingswood easily.
I'm in north-ish Bristol, can i maybe join in too? have DS1(2.9) and DS2 (5 months). I don't do axe-murdering either... often... . Haven't been to Castaways before - is there a website? not really sure where kingswood is??
Sounds like a date then! Wish it could be sooner.
I'll be the tall axe-murderer with the ginger child in a wheelchair. She's called Celyn. Ask questions about her, I don't mind. She can't move at all or see but she understands what is said and loves being around mobile kids.
And I'm looking forward to cake!
What time? I was thinking maybe 10ish?
Don't be scared Clairemow. I bet it wont be as scary as walking into a toddler group alone! I remember my first one after DD was born. Sat on the carpet all alone cos no-one would talk to me. They just stared at C and whispered about what could be 'wrong' with her. I went home and cried and cried. The second toddler group I tried was more welcoming but seeing as C isn't really 'playdate' material,the mums were friendly but I didn't make any friends. Haven't been for ages as we now get respite care on a thursday morning and as its my time off I usuallypark myself in front of the TV or go for a child free walk or, real excitment here...., go to the supermarket!
Bit of a shame really as C loves seeing other kids. She goes to nursery at Claremont Special school but all the kids in her class are in wheelchairs and she likes watching kids run and play.
