Hi Melanie,
Welcome to mumsnet. There's a fair few of us in your neighbourhood. I'm in Chatham, married with a dd of 4 and a ds of 1.
How did you come across mumsnet?
Hope to see you around the boards.

Hi Mel. Used Gravesend as a base for our hols 2 years ago. Stayed in a flat on the waterfront (near Tilbury Ferry - flats just before Asda etc). Weather was brilliant. Lovely lovely area you lucky Kent people.

Welcome Melainie, I'm afraid my brain has been nothing but mush for a few years now! No hope for me anymore!
I'm not far, Medway! I have two little ones, ds (5) and dd (3).
I am sure you will soon become totally addicted!!

Hi, thanks for your messages, came across mumsnet purely by accident as I was looking for help with my son's latest health predicament (I'm always at the doctor's for my son but never for my daughter! Why is that???) Anyway, will definitely be checking this website daily and it's nice to see there are a few people local to me here. The message about sunny Gravesend and being lucky to live here, I had to laugh as Gravesend was recently voted as one of the worst towns to live in the country recently! Not that I agree with it anyway!!!

Hi Mel, believe me there are some parts of Scotland worse than Gravesend. Dd loved going to Diggerland by the way.........

melanie1966 Tue 14-Dec-04 13:56:21

Hi FimboClaus, I had thought of taking my daughter to Diggerland for her birthday in March, have never been there, don't know if the weather might be a bit nippy then though!!!

Greatto have you aboard, Melanie. I go past Diggerland in Strood every day on the train - is it any good. Looks fun.

Yes, yet another north Kenter in Medway!
