New mums in West Sussex

(35 Posts)

Are there any new mums in West Sussex (e.g. the Chichester, Bognor, Arundel, Worthing, Petworth areas) who would like to chat and possible meet up for coffee?

I am a slightly older new mum with a three month old son, who would love to get to know other mothers in the area.

Hi! I live just outside Chichester and have a ds (2.8) and dd (1). Would love to meet up!

In that case we must make it happen this time - no excuses. I am free most days apart from Wednesdays at the mo so can fit in quite easily!

Have you been in the area for long - I grew up here and moved back after a short move away as missed it so much!!

Satine Sat 04-Jun-05 21:03:33

I lived here for a few years because of work and missed it so much when we moved that within 3 months we'd moved back! We've been in our current house 3 years and I think we're settled in for good now! It's the best of all worlds - rural enough to be really beautiful and fantastic for the children but close enough to civilisation! I'm also pretty flexible. I'm trying to think of somewhere nice and child and baby friendly to meet up. I seem to remember Charleepeters mentioning something about this area, I wonder if she'd like to come?

The more the merrier!!

Iam mobile so can meet anywhere but kbow the Chichester area best as that is where I grew up. Can suggest some indoors and outdoors areas here but if you are a little further out am happy to meet in the middle.

puddytats Mon 06-Jun-05 16:01:47

charleepeters Mon 06-Jun-05 16:17:34

puddytats Mon 06-Jun-05 16:29:45

Hello! Am free everyday but wednesdays. Never managed a meetup yet! IS it better to risk the weather and say meet somewhere like the cathedral green or to go for somewhere indoors?

charleepeters Mon 06-Jun-05 16:33:47

mmmm puddytats the way the weathes behaving maybe we should meet at the cathederal then go somewhere indoors a cafe or something im free most days so im easy let me know!

puddytats Mon 06-Jun-05 16:35:58

OK!! A day - next monday. DH goes back to work after paternity leave then so will give me something to look forward to rather than being stuck in the house with 2 small children!

charleepeters Mon 06-Jun-05 20:16:12

next monday sounds good where what time?

puddytats Tue 07-Jun-05 09:08:48

Shall we say the green at about 11ish? Does that fit in with you ok?

Janie7 Tue 07-Jun-05 13:09:26

Hello ladies,

I can't believe that after watching my posting regularly, hoping that a few local mums would respond, I was not around when they finally did!

It's great to see how determined you all are to meet up. Unfortunately, due to work, I don't think that I will be able to join you on Monday, but hope you have a great time. With any luck, you will be organising a second meet with the same efficiency!

In the meantime, I look forward to chatting to you all on MN.

puddytats Tue 07-Jun-05 13:54:55

Hi Janie7, I am really flexible so if the others are as well then I am sure we can rearrange to make a time suitable to you as well. If not we will just have to arrange another one asap that suits you - the more meetings the better for me at the moment!

puddytats Wed 08-Jun-05 17:55:31

Hi all

Don't let this one die!! What is general thought, shall we carry on with Monday and just arrange another one that Janie7 can make or shall we try and make a time we can all get there right off?

puddytats Thu 09-Jun-05 08:10:58


Satine Thu 09-Jun-05 08:12:47

charleepeters Thu 09-Jun-05 08:38:16

puddytats Thu 09-Jun-05 08:42:07

All i care about is that we are mums in the same situation, age etc means nothing!

Janie7 what day are you free?

Janie7 Thu 09-Jun-05 08:43:02

Puddytats, thank you so much for offering to rearrange the meet-up but I would hate you to have to change all your plans on my account. So, please do go ahead with your meet-up on Monday, have a great day and, hopefully, I will be able to join you all next time.

puddytats Thu 09-Jun-05 08:53:06

As long as you are sure?

Ok I will be on the green at 11 and anyone who whishes to join me will be more than welcome!

charleepeters Thu 09-Jun-05 08:53:39

charleepeters Thu 09-Jun-05 08:54:43
