I'm in Sawtry, anyone else nearby?

Inundated with respnoses then grin I have no idea where Sawtry is! I'm between Soham and Newmarket

Becketts Wed 14-Nov-12 19:38:55

A reply! grin Ah, you're over the other side then. Sawtry's just north of Huntingdon. There were definitely more of us before the switch over to the new local pages!

Wish2 Wed 14-Nov-12 19:42:36

I must be close to you Dances, I'm just west of Soham.

Becketts Wed 14-Nov-12 19:44:12

I keep mis-reading the ad spaces on the right hand side as 'self-loathing local ad'.

Wish2 Wed 14-Nov-12 19:46:10

I didn't. Until you said it and now I do too!

Businesses of Cambridgeshire shouldn't be so hard on themselves sad

No wonder it's even more quiet than usual on the local boards - logging in via mobile site was fraught with glitches, which would have put off many a less bored individual.

Don't really understand the whole local nickname thing, particularly as existing threads have carried over with our main-site NNs, but no big deal. Couldn't be bothered thinking up a related name, unlike a certain motor-sport follower smile

Busted already grin

Wish I am just east of Soham, in a village starting with an F smile

Wish2 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:36:09

I know which one! Mine starts with W.

I'm between Cambridge & Newmarket, just outside Burwell

Wish2 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:46:02

I used to live in Burwell when DD was a baby (so about 20 years ago now).

DancesinCambridgeshire Thu 15-Nov-12 18:46:47

Got you too there Wish - perhaps we should have wine coffee with ChasingSquirrels some time smile

DancesinCambridgeshire Thu 15-Nov-12 18:48:53

I got to Burwell often for various things. I'm looking forward to the Christmas fair at the fox in December

Wish2 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:49:22

Wine Coffee sounds good to me.

DancesinCambridgeshire Thu 15-Nov-12 18:53:47

nervous What if we turn out to already know each other hmm

Crocvillagemum Sat 08-Dec-12 17:15:55

Hello you lot. I'm just north of Huntingdon up the A141. I like both coffee and wine smile

MudcakedBoots Fri 04-Jan-13 09:02:44

Hello! Anyone still here? I've just discovered the local boards... I'm a new mum in Milton and I also like coffee wine

Crocvillagemum Fri 04-Jan-13 20:16:41

Meet up being mooted over on the Friendship Bench - Thurs 17th Jan.

Hello all, I've just crossed (from the other side) to have a looksie at being 'local' - however having said that I'm new(ish) - to the 'other side' too and am learning the ropes smile

Becketts Sun 03-Feb-13 21:39:05

Hello morethanfour smile Is the 'other side' the main part of mumsnet or are you talking about netmums another forum? Whereabouts in Cambs are you?

So, hows about another meet up in a couple of weeks? I should be up and about by then.
