I don't know I'm afraid, but this is the first I've heard of it and it sounds interesting!

steamedtreaclesponge Thu 02-Jun-11 10:22:40

Yes! It's definitely still on. Lisianthus, if you're interested PM me and I'll add you to the facebook group & give you the details of the meet-up.

I'll be so disappointed if there are not subsequent meetings, Elephant!

Yes, everybody come. It'll be like MN only with wine and cake - what's not to love?

<wafts baking aromas enticingly towards the hesitant>

[it ll be like mn only with wine and cake..........]

<deep in wine fuelled am i being unreasonable....
hmmm-shall i hang about outside and look through the windows for quite a while before i go in>

I expect we'll be easy to identify. We'll be the drunk ones stuffing ourselves with cake and poking men with sharp sticks...

Actually, how the heck are we going to work out who people are? We need a sign.

ElephantsAndMiasmas Thu 02-Jun-11 12:57:54

Well I know how you like making things, treacle...

I've got an elephant but it's very small.

steamedtreaclesponge Thu 02-Jun-11 13:08:31

But I have to make banana bread! I can't do a sign too, am not wonder woman...


Perhaps I could hold the banana bread up on a stick?

Actually, I could print off a sign now. And we could just prop it up on the table.

DaisyHayes Thu 02-Jun-11 13:16:25

Ok, who's bringing what?

Daisy - Stickers, felt tips, wellies

Treacle - banana bread, a sign

Elephants - a small felt elephant

Everyone - righteous zeal

Please add to list as appropriate.

ill be easy to spot-
i will be sitting there reading a newspaper-except i would of cut out all the bits that have pissed me off today.
so look out for the person that is sitting there holding up a paper doily!

ElephantsAndMiasmas Thu 02-Jun-11 17:21:07

Very excited about seeing everyone later -will be sure to post back tomorrow and cry that only I turned up tell you how brilliantly it went smile

Thanks dittany - it was great grin

No idea if it's the first one, hopefully the first of many if so!

DaisyHayes Fri 03-Jun-11 00:17:23

It was ACE!


So, y'know, even more of us should come next time. We have a mascot copy of The Female Eunuch and everything.

There wasn't strictly speaking banana cake, because Treacle's oven didn't manage to cook the bloody thing in time for the meeting, and I convinced her that no-one should have to miss a feminist meeting for baking.

But, er, I had some just now and it was really nice... grin

Didn't have to get the tube actually - walking distance for quite a few of the people who went, which was great.

Really excited about the next one! More people!

DaisyHayes Fri 03-Jun-11 10:37:57

Actually, we're considering throwing Treacle out of the group due to the no banana cake issue.

ElephantsAndMiasmas Fri 03-Jun-11 11:06:59

Splitters grin
