that sounds a great 'meetup' to me!!!

Blossomhill Mon 30-May-05 20:39:02

Are you coming along MrsF

coppertop Mon 30-May-05 20:46:42

That sounds really good. If I were to go I'd probably just take ds1 and leave ds2 at home with dh. Ds1 will still be 4 then so the train should be free for him too.

Blossomhill Mon 30-May-05 20:48:40

Good idea coppertop

coppertop Mon 30-May-05 21:17:33

I feel a bit guilty though because my first thought was that at least I'd get out of having to take ds2 shopping.

I have phoned London Zoo and they are sending me an application form tomorrow to get tickets for next week.

Well isn't that lovely of them? Not just that they provide the BSL interpreter but that none of you needs to worry about what "everybody else" is thinking!

Hope you have a lovely day, BH and anyone else who can take advantage

lou33 Tue 31-May-05 20:58:17

can't make it because dh is on a boys night out then

Janh Tue 31-May-05 21:00:00

Taxi to station + train, lou? Lift from wonderful kind friend? Sounds too good to miss!

Blossomhill Tue 31-May-05 21:00:46

RnB - that would be great. I am really looking forward to it!

Lou - oh what a shame

lou33 Tue 31-May-05 21:04:55

bit hard to find a friend who can take 5 of us. Wheelchair nigh on impossible to use public transport with

InternationalGirl Tue 31-May-05 21:25:31

Sounds like the London SN meet up - we're going to try to make it too...

Blossomhill Tue 31-May-05 21:39:14

If you phone and speak to Fiona 020 74496551. She will send you out an application form and then tickets.
Oh hope to meet some of you there

Davros Tue 31-May-05 22:15:28

Well I only live 5 minutes up the road, so don't go without telling me! I don't think i would take DS to be honest, I think it gets pretty crowded and we can go any time (nar nar nar nar nar!). I might be able to wangle meeting for a cuppa or something. Err, might have to take DS as he's got a yearly pass and I can only get in free with him doh!

InternationalGirl Tue 31-May-05 23:09:33

Oh go on Davros bring DS. The rest of us are all going to be chasing our kids all over the Zoo like lunatics - we'll understand when you suddenly have to dart off after DS.

When we went to the Zoo last year we brought all our animal pecs cards to see which animals we could find - was a good game for awhile. DD doesn't really use pecs anymore but will definitely tell us what she sees.

Thanks so much blossomhill for Fiona's number at the zoo - I'll call tomorrow.

Blossomhill Tue 31-May-05 23:17:46

You are welcome IG I really want to meet your family before you go
I really hope you can come davros and ds will be fine, it's for special needs children only

InternationalGirl Wed 01-Jun-05 20:57:12

I phoned today for the application - it's in the mail!

gaelsgirl Sun 05-Jun-05 17:26:39

am coming too

Davros Sun 05-Jun-05 19:06:40

Urgh, I'm terrified of going but I'd be a right big wimp if I didn't. Maybe it will be very good in that case....? DS went last year with his Saturday morning club and it was packed with queues to get in! Maybe I can get someone to come with... and then I could disappear into the caff!
