I would be up for chat/meetup haven't seen your posts before.
I'm Shrivenham/Watchfield area

NannyJo Sat 09-Apr-05 20:42:24

that would be great. we could meet north swindon area somewhere maybe south marston jungle bungle. How old are your children? My ds is 6months but i'm sure he wouldn;t oblige to being stuck in a ball pool or helped down a slide etc. what days are best for you? Tuesdays and fridays. Are you a SAHM?

Steppy1 Sun 10-Apr-05 09:01:28

sorry ladies...have been on a course for the last couple of days and only just caught up...doesn't this make you realise how attached to get to the computer ?!!! Anyway for all of your update, the first funky mamas night out has sold out though next one IS planned, booked etc etc for Friday 20th May. Tickets for May will be available and on sale from Monday 18th May at Churchill House family restaurant - there's also a really good (if on the small side !)childrens play area there called "Bumpy's Kingdom". Angelfire, if any tickets do become available then I'll try and get hold of you. I'm up for a meet up during the day - I have two little one's, a 4 yr old and 2 year old, though am up to my eyeballs this week with the FM event then off on hols on 20th April...fancy setting a date early May ? Nannyjo/'s a chance for mums to let their hair down with other like minded mums. I have a really good DJ who will be playing music to dance to..and you can get something simple and basic to eat from the bar. It all happens at the Wiltshire Golf and Country club, which is very nice and a bit classy, even if I should say so myself !!! If I do get any drop outs before Friday I will let you know...think it's going to be something a bit special as its the very first one !!!

NannyJo - Hi!

South Marston sounds fine to me.

May have to be the end of this month if okay. Just come back from holiday and next week have a busy week with minded children - what with school holiday and everything.

I'm 32 on Tuesday (infantile with it though) i have two daughters aged 4 and a half and the youngest 3 at the end of May. The oldest starts school after Easter break but they graduate the finish times for the first week so will be chaos.

Have to go now unfortunately got shopping to do urggghh. will contact you soon!!!

NannyJo Mon 11-Apr-05 19:07:36
