Now that we've more or less survived the festive season how about reviving our meet-ups for 2005?

I'm a bit busy next week and the week after with dr. appointments and school interviews for dd, but then my diary is pretty bleak and empty.

So who would like to do what and when

yingers74 Sun 02-Jan-05 21:39:52

hello, mrs big d, hope you had a great xmas. DD loves her trampoline and look forward to catching up with you.

unicorn Sun 02-Jan-05 22:15:57

Hi all!!

Had an awful,ill,Christmas.. flu etc.. but hopefully getting better now.

So will try and meet up with you all soon.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Happy 2005!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MrsBigDrumsADrumming Mon 03-Jan-05 00:17:41

xmas was nice with dd unwrapping everybodies pressies.

New Year's Eve... ah well on antibiotics for a kidney infection so no big celebrations here

Unicorn - hope your flu gets better. Seems like this year a lot of people were laid up with something or other for the festive season.

MrsBigD Wed 05-Jan-05 13:51:13

Hello all,

dd is starting kindi on 20/1 so could arrange for one more meet up at my place a.m. before then. Otherwise p.m. is fine too.

any takers again?

Hope ya all survived the festive season alright

MrsBigD Wed 05-Jan-05 19:25:41

no takers this year? Or is everybody still shell shocked from the festive season?

yingers74 Wed 05-Jan-05 21:54:38

maybe we could meet for lunch with the kiddies sometime? Isn't there a place in the green near ealing broadway?

MrsBigD Wed 05-Jan-05 22:47:49

Tootsies is a bit pricey but they don't mind kids. In fact last week when we went there for lunch it seemed to be kiddies day! At least 1 kid per table!

goreousgirl Thu 06-Jan-05 00:08:09

Hello - I'm an ealing-ite with a 5 yr old and an 8mth old - anyone else in this situation? I organised a coffee/lunch time meet with school parents at Bar Ha Ha on Mattock Lane - used to be Yates. It's good - they have a dedicated area for people with kids, a kids menu (but not crayons or goodie bags etc) - It's nice and you can just have a coffee or order the food which (I think) is lovely - not just burgers and chips!

yingers74 Thu 06-Jan-05 13:56:30

i have heard good things about carluccios - anyone ever heard of that and where is it? alternatively, i have taken dd to both cafe uno and bella italia with no probs at all, both have goodie bags and staff were friendly.

hello gg! my dd is 22 months

MrsBigD Thu 06-Jan-05 19:34:44

welcome to the Ealing Thread gg

DD is 3 and loves older kids , ds is 4 months old

Carluccios is nice but yet again a bit pricy. There is one in Ealing now I think in Bond street or around that area.

Bella Italia is good for kids they never seem to mind when dd goes running around

goreousgirl Thu 06-Jan-05 23:46:59

Please can someone decode all the DD DS DD1 etc etc for me - I just think I've worked it out, then something throws me again!


MrsBigD Fri 07-Jan-05 11:14:36

dd is dear daughter
ds is dear son
MIL mother in law
dh dear husband
dp dear partner
iykwim if you know what i mean
imho in my humble oppinion
etc etc etc

also at the top of the page is a link to 'acronym list'

MrsBigD Fri 07-Jan-05 11:15:18

well could be darling daughter etc as well... but ya get the idea

unicorn Fri 07-Jan-05 13:17:53

Hi all, + welcome gorgeousg...
I'm up for a Mon/Wed or Friday meet up.. my lttle tearaway needs a runaround though, otherwise I won't be able to sit and eat/drink/talk!

Anyone been to Wacky warehouse? (nearish to you mrsBigD I think)

MrsBigD Fri 07-Jan-05 15:54:54

Hi unicorn, I think wacky warehouse is only good if kids are NOT escape artists. Can't remember who told me but there seem to be a few gaps they can squeeze through

yingers74 Fri 07-Jan-05 22:21:08

have been to a wacky warehouse but i don't think they actually serve food do they? The one we went to was in greenford and we had to go to the pub that it is attached to in oder to get lunch. there is the YMCA cafe in st mary's that has a play area outside so assuming it does not rain......


does anyone know what happened to slink? I hope she is ok.

MrsBigD Sat 08-Jan-05 10:37:45

have not heard from her. hope she's ok.

We could alway grab lunch at e.g bella pasta and then hit walpole park weather allowing

yingers74 Sun 09-Jan-05 21:04:00

i am being difficult now, any chance we can meet in walpole in the morning and then go to bella italia or cafe uno? we went to bella italia on sat, our second time and some staff already recognise us!

unicorn Sun 09-Jan-05 21:07:33

sounds good to me Yingers...
Let them have a runaround first, then we may actually get a 'window of opportunity!' in which we grownups can eat/drink and possibly even....... talk!!!!!!

mon/wed or fri for me.

MrsBigD Mon 10-Jan-05 09:45:55


would have to be before 20th though as that's the first day dd will be 'dumped' at morning nursery

This week Friday would be o.k.
next week Monday and Wednesday

yingers74 Mon 10-Jan-05 13:49:18

next wednesday? I might be late though! need to help open up a play session near me and then I could meet you outside bella italia or at walpole depending what time you are planning to stay at walpole?

MrsBigD Mon 10-Jan-05 13:51:20

so next week
Wednesday 19th January 2005 around 11:00 Walpole Park (assuming it's not raining that is)

Any takers?

unicorn Mon 10-Jan-05 17:56:25

sounds good to me...what happens if its pouring down? straight to cafe?

I have to be back home to pick up dd from school at 3, so we won't be having a long leisurely lunch' (ha!! those were the days)

joygirl Mon 10-Jan-05 18:00:33
