A VIRTUAL MEETUP......

35 replies

MrsFROSTgetful · 03/03/2005 10:34

Thinking about how we all love to chat- but are in such different places that we never get to meet those we enjoy chatting to


So how about we agree a time/date where we all meet-up .....could get a bit chaotic on a single thread...so maybe someone can think of a good way on running this...amybe we all post a thread with our name as a tile so you can speak directly to that person....or just go on normal threads within the SEN board so we can mingle/

what d'you think?

Blossom and I know of an excellent Bar that we use to natter in.....Im sure they wouldnt mind us all using it!!!!
It on a site that is for ASD families.

The only problem I have had lately is that with everything thats going on I am really busy...poor old Bloss and I keep missing each other!!!!!

The only time the Bar gets really busy is on a Sunday night.....any other time its quiet there.

Good idea Mrs F....you choose the date, place and time and I'll be there.

So that's Chocs,J's Mum, Blossom, me and who else ....i bet Coppertop will be there!

I suggested this as i just feel that many of us are going through quite a rough patch at the moment....not hust the ones i mentioned above!!!

Alot of us simply are so wound up in out 'Fight for our children' that we haven't got the time to post.

I keep 'just missing' BH too.

And CT and I have't had a 'Banter' for ages.

I just feel that where am so busy i squeeze in a few minutes on here...loiter to see if anyone's around....then give up as i'm alone ....then when i come back on later that day i find that i 'just missed' being joined by a pal!!!
I missed Macwoozy yesterday by minutes and therefore missed that trisha programe that i would have died to watch...but then managed to miss mac's second attempt about the repeat!!! So i was very peed off

I just feel that if we set a day and time that we'd all 'allow ourselves some ME time' (that's what my psycholgist says i NEVER do!.....appart fom MN!)...and if we knew that many of us would all be perched at our p.cs allover the world (!) all at the samen time- then we would feel TOTALLY SUPPORTED!!!

Here's a perfect example of me missing everyone yet again! I'll be in it too as long as this bl**dy computer lets me. The Active Conversations button seems to have gone AWOL on my computer so at the moment I'm finding everyone by clicking on "Last Hour". Grrrrr!

Hmmmmmmmm.......[she sits with a thoughtful look].....maybe we could say 8pm-11pm EVERY NIGHT!!!!! (not that we have to sit there every night- nor for 3 hours)
then we could have a daytime slot too (whilst the darlings are away....)
Maybe 11-2pm....

wondering what u think of that- kind of a 'drop- in clinic....wher we could post and KNOW that we all tend to 'pop in' around then???

Yippeeee! Thanks, MrsF! If I type in the SearchTalk?lastn=50 I get the Active Conversations page. Hurray! No idea why it's suddenly disappeared from my screen in the first place though.

If I'm around in the evenings it's usually sometime between about 8 and 11 so that would be a good time for me too.

I can probably make it for about 8.30ish. If I 'disappear' it's only because the thread(s) have got so long that my poor old computer won't open them.
