CherryM - Was that the Stirling one? I didn't make it to that one, but I made it to the one on Friday..... please come to the next one!

I am 27 too... hope I'm not too old! My ds will be 4 in June and my dd is 7mths.

CherryEm Fri 18-Mar-05 14:45:52

yeah imade a few mistakes. I brought a friend and then met an old uni buddy while i was there. to be honest, she joined in more than i did cos shes dead confident. also i had no idea who was who and no1 really said who they were and who they were online. saying that they were really nice but too good at being mums and socialising for little shy me!

I think its a great idea to arrange another 1.

Can anyone help? My wedding is on 1st july. Im too late to order bridesmaids dresses and have a tight budget. Also one of my bridesmaids is at least a size 20 but insists on trying on too tight 18s. I cant find a department store or anywhere with 'off the hanger ones' that does them above an 18 anyway. Help!! severe panic!!

congratulations on your wedding CherryEm! I got married on the 1st july too - its a lovely date!!!

feel free to join in on the stirling meet up again. At the last one there were only 4 of us, so it was much less intimidating and easier to get good chat!

CherryEm Mon 21-Mar-05 11:28:20

Im free pretty much anytime. so wheneva suits. I know of one place that will make one within the time needed (shes also 6'2"!) but shes not happy with the dress and neither is her mum. She wants to wear the debenhams one but it DOESNT FIT! too short tootight. Im just gonna need to be brave wi the MIL and her and sayu "right your wearing this one lets go get measured." I dread what im marrying into sometimes!!!

Hey I am 23 with 11 month old dd... I live in Edinburgh but am happy to travel to a meet-up...

Toothache, I know you said I could do Stirling on the 10th but I don't know if u got my messgae that that was my dds birthday..??

Any other time as I would like to meet some other mums... I don't know any! Boo hoo....

Hi CherryEm. I've never been to a meet up before and would love to, although I'm a bit scared - don't know why.

I've read on these pages from the Glasgow girls that they have a great time, so maybe when there's another booked in I might come along too.

kjq Mon 21-Mar-05 11:55:36

Oh forgot to add that I'm nearly 29 - am I too old?

weesaidie Mon 21-Mar-05 12:04:31

kjg - I am bit scared too! a little intimidated I think but would like to do it all the same!

Toothache Mon 21-Mar-05 12:31:45

Weesaidie - The meet-up at Stirling Uni has been moved to 24th April if anyone wants to come??

I was really nervous about the meet-up too, but it was fun!

Cherrym - Go on.... come to the next one! Great to hear you're getting married. Have you tried Monsoon in Glasgow for the dresses? That's where I got my wedding dress.

weesaidie Mon 21-Mar-05 12:37:05

I would like to come if that is okay with everyone...

let me know when you know where and when!


Toothache Mon 21-Mar-05 13:11:55

Weesaidie - The arrangements are:

MacRobert Centre 2.30pm Sunday 24th April.

Will you be travelling by train?

weesaidie Mon 21-Mar-05 14:40:20

Train or bus, whatever gets me nearer the MacRobert Centre! Is there anywhere in particular to go in the centre, I don't what it is?! A shopping centre??

If you tell me where it is I will check on multi map for directions!!

Thanks Toothache

Toothache Mon 21-Mar-05 15:47:08

Weesaidie - The MacRobert is a theatre and arts centre in Stirling Uni. The coffee shop there has loads of stuff for kids to do and big area for them to run about.

The train will get you to Stirling Station, but the Uni is about 3 miles from there. My DH is giving me a lift but there won't be any room in the car for you, or we could have picked you up at the station!

We'll work something out for you. Could you jump in a taxi at the station? The taxi rank is right outside and it'll only be about £4 maximum. I could meet you outside MacBob so you're not walking in all lost like I did last time!!!! People must have thought I was really strange walking up to tables of women asking if they were on a Mumsnet Meet-up!

CherryEm Mon 21-Mar-05 20:47:38

I think Glasgows much easier for me. anyone know of somewhere decent for littluns and us?

weesaidie Mon 21-Mar-05 21:42:34

Toothache - no worries, I'll get a taxi... sounds like a great place.

if you could meet me outside that would be fantastic... shall I carry a red rose?!
