SixtyFootDoll Tue 10-Jan-12 22:17:34

Not Cardiff, but not far away. Hello!

Staceroo Tue 10-Jan-12 22:35:02

Bridgend here - so not too far either! Mum to an 8 week old baby girl so looking to see what fun mum and baby things we can do nearby!!


mumatron Fri 13-Jan-12 22:38:43

cleas Sat 14-Jan-12 09:08:07

And me grin
Doesn't seem to be too many of us?

I thought ther would be more too!

Clearlymisunderstood Sat 14-Jan-12 11:20:48

I'm from Cardiff smile

MrsKitty Sat 14-Jan-12 12:00:41

I'm sure there's more - They must all be hiding!

Ten minutes cycle over the barrage to Cardiff for me smile, Mum to two boys. Are we needed for something?

mumatron Sat 14-Jan-12 13:22:53

I know of a few more south wales mumsnetters but there aren't that many of us tbh.

Nena0402 Sat 14-Jan-12 14:32:00

I've just joined mumsnet today. I live in Penylan and have lived in cardiff for 8 1/2 years. I have two children (11 and 6) and one on the way in May.

Nice to 'meet' you all!

SensitivityChip Sat 14-Jan-12 14:38:36

Bridgend here but I lived in Cardiff for a few years when I was at uni so know my way around. Admittedly my idea of a good time had a lot less to do with parks and soft play in those days though! grin

cupcakefairy Sun 15-Jan-12 09:24:57

Hi ladies..I'm in Cardiff too smile have to admit I've hardly come across any s.Wales MNers in the almost-3 years I've been on here...so hello smile

I have a 19-month-old ds and one on the way in May too Nena smile

Reenypip Mon 16-Jan-12 17:35:47

Hi, sorry haven't replied to any of you, was admitted to hospital (uhw) last week for an emergency op.

Reenypip Mon 16-Jan-12 17:37:37

I started the topic just to see if there were any mums who live in Cardiff, to chat to each other and share experiences.

MrsKitty Mon 16-Jan-12 18:05:34

Hope you're OK Reenypip?

Hi everyone grin finally some locals!!

MrsKitty Mon 16-Jan-12 18:11:05

I've been around for years fuzzy, Just usually rather quiet and lurky!

NoWuckingFurries Mon 16-Jan-12 18:13:18

I'm quiet and lurky too smile but born and raised in Cardiff. Hello all!

So lovely to meet you all! Was starting to wonder if I was all alone down here grin

mumatron Mon 16-Jan-12 19:15:11

I've been here years and have only 'met' a few locals. not sure if I like knowing there are other mners so close.

I may have to start making an effot when out and about in future grin

Hope your feeling better reeny

poorbuthappy Mon 16-Jan-12 19:16:27

I'm up the road in a more roman area. So I'll shout.......


I'm not in Cardiff but not too far away. Penarth girl born and raised, spent 24 years there but am now somewhere much greener but not too far!

mumatron Mon 16-Jan-12 19:21:22

I feel the need to go and buy a mumsnet scarf and start carrying pom bears around with me

Ha yes! Maybe we could invent a secret nod too?!

MrsKitty Mon 16-Jan-12 20:28:01

I always assume there's other MNetters around me, and make sure I don't do anything that'll land me in AIBU thread!

I had a little chuckle to myself when John Lewis started having PomBears in their kids lunchbox selection - Had to wonder if it was due to target market research grin

We've been here 8 years.

MrsKitty Mon 16-Jan-12 20:31:17

By 'here' I mean Cardiff, not MN (although DS, and therefore MN, was only a few years later.)

Reenypip Mon 16-Jan-12 22:39:38

Hi, I'm alright, thank you for asking. I've been through a lot worse :-) I'm a fighter :-)

SensitivityChip Mon 16-Jan-12 22:44:48

I noticed Pom Bears for sale in an activity centre the other day and had a quick look around to see if anyone else had noticed. I'm sure the owner must be a MNer! grin

SensitivityChip Mon 16-Jan-12 22:45:26

Glad you're ok, Reeny!

Reenypip Mon 16-Jan-12 22:48:41

Are there any disabled mums in Cardiff?

Can anyone tell me please what is a pom bear? just so that I'll know you when I see you smile

MrsKitty Fri 20-Jan-12 12:47:16

It's a brand of potato-y crisp type snack that is formed into the shape of bears. and they are vile

smile I googled it and came up with an online kids game with sugary sweet vile looking characters.
The crisps sound nicer, I'll keep a look out as I'm sure there are more MNers in Cardiff than this

NoWuckingFurries Sun 22-Jan-12 14:56:50

Do any of you Cardiff mums go to buggy fit? I've suspected a couple but had no confirmation outs self

mumatron Sun 22-Jan-12 15:11:08

Never heard of buggy fit. Where do you do that?

mumatron Sun 22-Jan-12 15:11:08

Never heard of buggy fit. Where do you do that?

Hi hi grin

tallpoppies Sun 22-Jan-12 15:12:15

Not yet but moving nearby in July!

NoWuckingFurries Sun 22-Jan-12 15:40:41

You can do it in Roath Park on Mondays and Fridays, Esporta on Tuesdays and pontcanna fields on Wednesdays and Thursdays which I go to It's great because it means you can burn off some calories without having to find a babysitter and it's a really chatty supportive environment. I could've sworn there were at least a couple of mnetters going! Maybe they're hiding...

NoWuckingFurries Sun 22-Jan-12 15:41:35

<stalks fuzzy > grin

Hi everyone grin

Archiesmummy1 Tue 31-Jan-12 10:46:28

Hiya I'm in Cardiff too. I'm mum to a 20 month boy.

Reenypip Thu 02-Feb-12 21:54:30

Anyone been on the language and play course?
I went on it at the end of last year with my baby boy. We both enjoyed it. It was things I already knew, but reinforced it and we did lots of playing together and making things. I did the baby language and play course then. And we are hoping to do the older course next.

simbacooper Fri 17-Feb-12 14:58:42

Hi. Im a cardiff mum. I have a 10 year old boy and we are trying ivf for another.

cockneycharlie Sat 18-Feb-12 13:14:40

Another Cardiff mum here in Cyncoed. Not a local girl originally - from London but feel very local now after 15+ years. Got 4 weeks old and 3 year old.

JenJen84 Fri 24-Feb-12 13:13:46

Expectant first time mum to be, living not too far from Cardiff. Originally from the Bridgend area.

I have found a distinct lack of things to do in the area I have to say - if anyone has any ideas I'd be really grateful!! Bit lonely!!

Nice to "meet" you all!

MrsKitty Fri 02-Mar-12 10:37:33

What sort of thing are you looking for JenJen?
