Libra Thu 25-Jun-09 16:56:05

Oooh. Me please. I work in Aberdeen and live out near Ellon.

Libra Thu 25-Jun-09 16:57:21

Will tell DH I am going to meet that woman who wrote what he refers to in tones of awe as 'the Mumsnet kick-ass au pair questionnaire'

AtheneNoctua Thu 25-Jun-09 20:25:23

Oh fantastic! grin

I have been to get my hair cut, been shopping and now I can't decide whether to go out and sit at a restaurant like Billy no mates or just go downstairs and have a beer and bring my laptop for company. What a sad life I lead.

Oh, and today is my wedding anniversary.

AtheneNoctua Thu 25-Jun-09 20:27:46

Doesn't anyone in Scotland know how to copy and paste? Just kidding, before you all think I'm rude and change your minds!

Mitchell81 Thu 25-Jun-09 20:34:13

Happy Anniversary, How many years?

Anyone else? Come on. You know you want to!

Athene Noctua

Libra Fri 26-Jun-09 14:04:55

Can I check the date? You say July 8 (Thurs) but July 8 is a Wednesday.

Either Wed or Thurs would be OK with me, but am in London Mon and Tues that week.

AtheneNoctua Fri 26-Jun-09 15:21:52

oops. actually, either the Wed or the Thurs works for me too. Probably prefer Thurs. but not really fussed if someone else wants Wed.

Anyone else have a preference?

Mitchell81 Fri 26-Jun-09 15:24:53

Nope, can do either.

AtheneNoctua Fri 26-Jun-09 15:44:18

ok, shall we say Thursday July 9th (unless ineedacleaner prefers Wed.)?

Now what time is good for everyon? I can do 7:00 onward and prefer not to have too late of a night so earlier is better for me. But, again, happy to do whatever suits others.

And, where shall we go? I have heard cafe 52
is good but haven't been thre myself.

Or there is Rustico which looks nice from the outside but again I haven't set foot in the place so can't say for sure.

Any of you locals have any ideas?

Libra Fri 26-Jun-09 16:36:29

Either of those sound good, or there is The Foyer which has an offer on Thursdays.

IneedacleanerIamalazyslattern Sat 27-Jun-09 09:48:22

Nope Thursday is better for me so i'm fine with that. I've never been in any f thos places either but i'm liking the offer in the foyer. {cheapskate emoticon anyone??]

LemonTea Sat 27-Jun-09 10:08:45

I just thought I would jump on this thread too. I used to live in Aberdeen (moved further out just over a year ago), so getting into Aberbeen is a bit of a mission for me now.
I would liked to have joined you all for a drink and meal, but won't be able to make the 9th.

Just to give you another option for a meal musa is great IMO better than The Foyer, or try The stage Door.

AN you have my sympathy - I used to work in oil before becoming SAHM, and it's hard work sstaying in hotels all the time. Sounds like ffun at first, but quickly becomes very tiring and a bit lonely.

Anyway - enjoy yourselves. Hope you all have a nice time

AtheneNoctua Sun 28-Jun-09 22:05:37

Ok, so 7:00 (is this too early?) on Thursday 9th July at....

I don't mind where really. They all look/sound fine to me.

Mitchell81 Mon 29-Jun-09 10:41:42

7pm on thursday sounds fine. Anywhere is fine with me.

IneedacleanerIamalazyslattern Tue 30-Jun-09 09:24:34

Yes that should be fine with me too, i'm looking forward to this grin

AtheneNoctua Tue 30-Jun-09 10:37:25


Foyer? Cafe 52? or Rustica?

I'm not fussed which one. If anyone else has a preference please speak up now. Or I can just pick one and book it. (likely to be Cafe 52).

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

snorkelgirl Tue 30-Jun-09 13:55:21

Hi there, is there room for 1 more?

Libra Tue 30-Jun-09 14:03:59

I'm happy to meet anywhere. 7 on Thursday is good for me.

IneedacleanerIamalazyslattern Tue 30-Jun-09 15:20:45

I'm happy with wherever we go i'm just looking forward to meeting you all.
