Hi everyone, this is my first post on Mumsnet - eek! I will join in on the other boards when I get a chance, but just wondered if there's anyone local to me on here?

It's getting to the end of the summer hols and I'm feeling a bit caged in and sick of Spongebob and Hannah Montana!! I'm mum to a boy and a girl, aged 9 & 5.

Hope to chat to some of you soon!

Hi, there are a few shropshire ladies, but not many Im afraid. Im from Telford. there is a meet up on weds in sutton park birmingham if you fancy it.

Hi lissielou, thanks for the quick reply! I love Telford for shopping, although I got lost trying to find my way there last time!!

I won't be able to make the B'ham meet unfortunately Will keep my eye out on here though!

Hi Mrs - I live near Wem (still never mind eh? - at least we have the Sweetpea festival).


MrsMeow Mon 24-Aug-09 20:53:09

Hi TheOddOne. I've not been for ages, but from what I remember of Wem, it's a lovely place, sweetpeas and all It can't be any worse than Os anyway...home to charity shops and travel agents and not much more!

Nice to 'meet' you! I wasn't expecting to find neighbours on here!

Do you have children?

TheOddOne Mon 24-Aug-09 21:12:00

Yes i have two boys aged 8 & 6 grin. Took them to Oswestry hill fort a couple of weeks ago actually grin.

My boys seem to like Hannah Montana too hmm - as well as Spongebob obv.

I enjoy Shrewsbury i must admit - are you from round here originally? I'm from London.

MrsMeow Mon 24-Aug-09 21:25:30

Oh cool, v similar ages to my two My girl is 9 and my boy is 5 - I just realised my first post made it sound the other way around!

No, we're not from here originally, it was a bit of a shock moving to a quiet market town I have to admit! And, this is really embarassing but we've been here for 6.5 years and I still haven't visited the hill fort blush I do love it here though, and at least Shrews & Wrexham aren't too far away when needed.

What is the attraction with HM?! DD is mad on her! Spongebob, I can understand...even though I've seen every episode 3 million times. But Hannah Montana leaves me feeling a bit...odd!

TheOddOne Mon 24-Aug-09 21:33:27

Agree totally - SBSP makes me laugh still but HM??? Still, i was never a girly girl and can't imagine being into it at 12 let alone 35! But my boys love it esp the older one.

There are some other posters from Shrops and we've tried to arrange meet ups times but somehow it never seems to happen. Lissie will testify to this grin. We're clearly an idle county....

OracleInaCoracle Mon 24-Aug-09 21:44:12

lol, v true. we could try to resurrect the shropshire meet!

MrsMeow Mon 24-Aug-09 21:49:55

Well, there's definitely a slower pace of life here, isn't there? Apart from on market day grin

And I know what you mean, I've never been particularly girly and would rather have stuck pins in my eyes than watched HM!! I don't know where my DD gets her girlyness from!

Although I must admit, I do like Jackson Hannahs brother on the show. He might make me laugh. A bit.

TheOddOne Mon 24-Aug-09 22:05:30

Is he another 'true' Cyrus or an actor?

MrsMeow Mon 24-Aug-09 22:13:44

No he's an actor I think. According to DD, there's loads of Cyrus off-spring (HOW? when Billy Ray only looks mid thirties!!!) and one of them is that skinny emo kid with the weird half smile who sings in Metro Station. I'd sing you the song that's in the charts, but I'd probably crucify it wink

TheOddOne Mon 24-Aug-09 22:16:05

Perhaps we could come up with a Hannah Montana style character from Oswestry who hits it big in London........

Olive Oswestry....

Mystery Oswestry....

Gemma Wem.....

It doesn't have quite the same ring to it does it??

MrsMeow Mon 24-Aug-09 22:24:50

Hahah! Umm...

Elle Smere?

Lily Llynclys?

Luanne Llansantffraid?

Roberto Ruyton X1 Towns?

We could be onto something here!

TheOddOne Mon 24-Aug-09 22:29:41

LOL at Roberto Ruyton XI - could be a superhero no? maybe not eh?

MrsMeow Mon 24-Aug-09 22:38:17

Yeah, a superhero could be good! Bit of a mouthful for the sexy yet intelligent looking female lead to shout though, when she needs rescuing...!

Haha, we'd best leave Knockin, you're right. grin

We could call the starlets mum Sheila Shrawardine though?
