I was just wondering if anyone is interested in a follow up to to the Christmas bash. I personally had a great time. I think there was some talk about one in Birmingham a whle ago but I'm not what ever came of it.

So would anyone be interested in one in London (assuming it doesn't conflict one in Birmingham -- don't want to step on any toes of course!)

Anyone interested? Say sometime in May (but not the 19th)?

So, that's a "no" then?

I'd definitely have come if I was still there
I bet people will want too, they must have just missed this

uwila Tue 30-Jan-07 14:02:14

I see this is still shockingly popular.

I'm ore than happy to join in [grin. What were you thinking of? Ovenight stay or just up for the evening?

uwila Tue 30-Jan-07 14:47:57

Oh, overnight of course. Need time to recover before going home to noisy children. So, night out in London (like the last one but no Christmas theme) then I spend a night, and have lazy morning, go to lunch, go shopping, etc. then go home.

Yep,- perhaps!!!

ComeOVeneer Tue 30-Jan-07 15:06:54

Sounds perfect. May good for me except can't do 26th (as 27th is my weding anniversary). The first weekend would be best. I can do the weekend of the 12th/13th if we go out in the evening of the 12th (dd's school fair is during the day on the saturday.

Okay, so May 12 is on the table for London booze up. Will try to have a look at venues later... or anyone else who has suggestions can feel free to jump in and suggest...

ComeOVeneer Tue 30-Jan-07 15:27:20

No exact suggestions as yet, however I put in a vote for somewhere a little more conducive to conversation and a shorter queue at the bar .

ComeOVeneer Tue 30-Jan-07 15:27:50

PS currently looks like it is just you and me Uwila .

uwila Tue 30-Jan-07 15:31:14

Absolutely! Want to see and hear you this time.

It was fun having lots of people last time, but even if it is say 5 or 10 of us that would still be fun. Surely we can coerce 5 or 10 to show up????

Nanou1 Tue 30-Jan-07 15:32:34

and ... moi!

suejonezisdanielsmummy Tue 30-Jan-07 15:56:16

I may be able to make it - depends where it is and babysitting availability

Nanou1 Tue 30-Jan-07 15:58:16

hi Sue! how are you finding your new life?

anorak Tue 30-Jan-07 16:00:29

I might come uwila.

ComeOVeneer Tue 30-Jan-07 16:00:39

Hi Sue (I am one of the new West London lot). Have followed your story avidly and am thrilled you're back home now with Daniel and hope you are settling in to parenthood well. Would love to meet you at one of thee meet-ups soon.

suejonezisdanielsmummy Tue 30-Jan-07 16:09:13

I remember you were trying to buy a house in Thames Ditton(?) when I left

suejonezisdanielsmummy Tue 30-Jan-07 16:10:39

new life is pretty much what you'd expect Nanou - a revolving cycle of food, sleeping, playing and crying! With a bit of jet-lag thrown in. I'm just beginning to resuface now and will be available for coffee in M&S from Friday morning onwards...

ComeOVeneer Tue 30-Jan-07 16:12:37

That's right, and we have only just moved a couple of weeks ago. Quickly getting settled in.

Nanou1 Tue 30-Jan-07 16:14:40

oh i hate jet lag ...

uwila Tue 30-Jan-07 16:48:56

Right, sighn your names here for 12 May in London (place to be determined), add/delete as appropriate:
