Hello everyone--I'm new to Mumsnet and new to the UK, having moved here from the US only three weeks ago. I have a two-year-old girl and a one-year-old boy, and we are starting to feel a little tired of one another's company after being stuck in a hotel for the past month! We'd love to find a playgroup or other children to play with, and I'd love to find other mothers to talk with and perhaps have coffee with as well. I've got loads of absolutely crucial (LOL) questions about living in the Hampstead area too--surgeries, nurseries, shopping, etc. if anyone has the time to help me out. Thanks and I look forward to meeting you.
Hi Lucy14 - My dw and I live near Hampstead, but not near enough to give you the low down on anything other than the Everyman being a great cinema and Cafe T being good for Dim Sum and Jin Kichi being good for Japanese !
We are only currently propogating our first, so wouldn't have any company for your babbas. However, there are several mums who have posted in previous messages about meetups in Hampstead.
Search the archived messages area for 'Hampstead' in the title and maybe CAT them (Contact A Talker) on the top of the page, or else maybe start a new thread for a Hampstead meetup and perhaps you'll meet some locals that way !
