Waves at ChunkyMonkeysMum! Would love an MN Surrey meet-up, so anyone else fancy joining in?

CarGirl Thu 15-Oct-09 22:15:28

I'm quite far from you and my dds have all abandoned me to go to full time school grin

scrappydappydoo Thu 15-Oct-09 22:22:50

I wouldn't mind joining in - over in your neck of the woods....

ChunkyMonkeysMum Thu 15-Oct-09 22:24:21

Waves back at TheBossofMe grin.
Ok girlies, lets see if we get a few more responses and go from there.

ChunkyMonkeysMum Thu 15-Oct-09 22:25:50

Brilliant, 2 more in the time it took me to post my last comment!!
Anyone have any ideas of where to meet??
Do we all drive?

hotchachachaingbunny Thu 15-Oct-09 22:56:36

Just bumping this for you Chunky.

I would love to meet up with other MNers too, but I'm a bit too far away (near Godalming). I wanted to say hello anyway, and maybe someone closer to me might see this... Tracyface for example!

CarGirl, where are you?

Good luck Chunky. Sorry for slight hijackblush

CarGirl Thu 15-Oct-09 23:01:27

Near Woking

Problem with Surrey is that it's so big with too much traffic in it!

hotchachachaingbunny Thu 15-Oct-09 23:05:09

Exactly. We may not be far apart geographically, but it would probably be faster to get to France than some parts of Surreyshock It's mad!

CarGirl Thu 15-Oct-09 23:06:07

I travel to Horsham alot, it is 30 miles door to door the least time it has ever taken is 50 minutes........

hotchachachaingbunny Thu 15-Oct-09 23:08:52

We keep saying we'll go to IKEA in Croydon, but can't face it as the last time we went it took 1 hour 45 minutes... Must try the new Southampton one.

CarGirl Fri 16-Oct-09 09:29:31

I go to the Wimbledon one as it's quicker than the Croydon one although it's nearer!

Hi there - I live in Oxted (so not too far from Chunky!) and would love to meet up with some MNers: I rarely post but follow a lot of threads with interest.

Two children, 21 and 18.

CarGirl Fri 16-Oct-09 10:14:20

Reality dd1 goes to CH so be prepared for a quivering wreck to turn up on your doorstep we're going through teenage angst at the moment.......

SweetestThing start posting on the teenage threads we need more survivors on there to give us a help coping with those teen years!

There's an ikea in Wimbledon???shock Do you know where? I can't find it on their site. Thanks.

CarGirl Fri 16-Oct-09 11:17:59

Sorry I meant Wembley, I've been working for 2 weeks and it's fried what little brain I have left.

It's still quicker to get to though M25, M4, hanger lane roundabout and then you're there........ or south circular then northcircular

hotchachachaingbunny Fri 16-Oct-09 11:22:58

Oh ok, got all excited there... Yes we've been to the Wembley one, but the M25 was closed due to a car accident, and we've vowed never ever to go there again!

CarGirl Fri 16-Oct-09 11:30:14

eek that was unfortuate! I also know the back roads via Hounslow & T4 because I used to commute from Hendon to Bedfont Lakes daily for 4 months........

It is still preferable to Purley Way though - I got my car broken into there and then there was the time there was a fire in pet food warehouse and we stranded in the car park for 3 hours..........nothing but traumas going to Croydon!

hotchachachaingbunny Fri 16-Oct-09 12:43:34

Yes I think knowing the escape routes help! I know south east London far better than the north bit! I do agree that Croydon is best avoided though. Will try to persuade dh that Southampton is the way to go - at least we could find the sea there!

CarGirl Fri 16-Oct-09 14:03:52


I walk over the M25 everyday on the school run (we're near Heathrow sandwiched between the A3 & M3) and the days it's moving above 40 are less frequent than the days it's moving at less than 40 in at least one direction!

tracyface Fri 16-Oct-09 14:42:36

Hi Hotcha - Godalming is not too far away at all from Woking only about 20 mins if you drive. How old are your children?

My oh loves Godalming and would like to move there one day!

I hope we are not suggesting meeting up in Ikea shock but some other ideas would be good ...Anyone any suggestions?
