house is all packed up ready for our move on monday so we'd like to get out for a day

swindon-ish would be a good place to meet the ILs for a day

looking for somewhere that will amuse the boys and serve lunch

ey up (tis foxinsocks)

hope the move goes well

can't think what's in swindon tbh (ILs in oxford on the oxford swindon road)

there's a nice farm place called Milletts (playground, animals, loads of space, shop, nice cafe etc.) but I don't have my bearings AT ALL in that area so it's probably way too far from Swindon

have looked, is way too far from swindon unless you were hoping to be on the oxford side of it

have googled

nowhere near

but thanks grin

how are you?

there's also a railway in swindon that does those thomas days

swindon railway

lol at nowhere near

I'm ok. Totally overworked. Worry about not seeing the kids enough.

How you? House all ready to be moved into (no work to be done on it)?

but no thomas day this weekend

no 'event' as such

and not sure there's anything cafe-ish
