Local Talk

Hey Falkirks Mums!! Is there anyone else out there?

(117 Posts)

Just a quick (and long overdue) intro as the Falkirk Tsarina!

Hopefully we'll get more going on in our area!

Devonshire Wed 01-Aug-07 23:24:29

congrats on your new position as our local Tsarina!

i live in falkirk too and will watch the local section with interest!

Stefka Tue 28-Aug-07 12:45:58

Hi I am in Falkirk too!!! I am pleased to see some activity in this section

foxymagoo Mon 03-Sep-07 20:24:03

I'm a falkirk bairn too born and bred. Have a ds who is 15 months.

I'll add this to my 'threads I'm watching'

Stefka Wed 05-Sep-07 13:22:56

I wasn't born here - been here for a couple of years now.

I am expecting my first in 6 weeks time.

Did you go to Stirling to have your DS foxymagoo? If so I would love to hear how you got on there as that is where I am booked to have my baby.

foxymagoo Fri 07-Sep-07 20:44:36

Yes I had ds in Stirling. Without boring you with my rather long birth story I found the care there excellent. We had three shift changes during labour and the midwifes/docotors were fantastic.

Post-natally I was very lucky as I had a private room for the first two nights before being transferred to the ward for my last night. Being on the Ward made me appreciate having my own room but again the midwifes were attentive and the student ones great to talk to.

I breastfed ds and had a lot of care and attention from staff helping me get it established. Forth Valley is very pro breastfeeding and I felt I got more attention on the ward as I was the only one bf.

Hope everything goes well smile

Stefka Sat 08-Sep-07 10:50:09

Thank you that is really great to hear! I plan to breastfeed to so I am glad they are so supportive. I have been getting nervous about the hospital - I am so glad you had such a positive experience there. I hope it will be the same for me

my2weegirls Thu 20-Sep-07 16:13:49

hello - thought i would just add myself onto here. i'm another falkirk bairn born and bred.

oops DD2 is squawking for some food - be back later!

Stefka Fri 21-Sep-07 08:50:13

Hi there my2weegirls

LilMunki Sat 20-Oct-07 14:37:17

Just popping in to say hello, I'm in the Falkirk area and currently expecting my first.

Anyway hello grin

my2weegirls Mon 22-Oct-07 14:26:31

hello - i'm taking DD1 to teeny twisters on friday for the first time - anyone been before?

hi there lilmunki - congratulations and when are you due?

stefka - have you had your baby?

Stefka Wed 24-Oct-07 19:08:51

Yes - on Sunday at 4am. A wee boy

my2weegirls Thu 25-Oct-07 09:20:04

congratulations grin hope you are both well - enjoy every second of your new arrival grin

gscrym Fri 26-Oct-07 07:44:54

Another Falkirk one here too. Hope you're all doing fine.

Stefka Mon 05-Nov-07 22:01:25

How's everyone? I am wondering what sort of mother - baby things are available in our area. Does anyone know? Not that I am ready to leave the house yet - actually it feels like I will never leave the house again!

foxymagoo Wed 07-Nov-07 20:11:40

There's lots of things (although some are for when they're a bit older)

Baby massage (at Camelon Health Centre)

Breastfeeding support Group (at Dawson Centre)

Bounce and Tickle (singing class at Library)

Playgroups (we go to Lochgreen and its from birth onwards)

Soft Play (one in Grangemouth and two in Falkirk)

Salvation Army Mother and Toddler (every Friday)

St Andrews Church M&T (every Thurs. morning)

That's enough to be getting on with grin

Stefka Wed 07-Nov-07 22:43:35

Sounds great! Don't know why I am worried - not able to leave the house yet! I love the idea of baby massage.

foxymagoo Thu 08-Nov-07 12:30:35

Baby massage was lovely - 9.30am or 10.30am on a Monday morning. ds loved it (we started going when he was 12 weeks old until he was about 5 months). I met some lovely Mums there too who I bump into at other things.

Stefka You need to add you ds's picture to your profile so we can goo over him!

Stefka Thu 08-Nov-07 13:52:54

I didn't know I had a profile - I will go and look for it!

Stefka Thu 08-Nov-07 14:00:03

Oh yes found it! Added one - it's a couple of weeks old now so he already looks really different!

foxymagoo Sat 10-Nov-07 13:29:46

Can't see it... did you click save changes?

Stefka Tue 13-Nov-07 10:24:55

ops - no! I think I did it right this time though.

foxymagoo Tue 13-Nov-07 13:53:22

awwww.... He is lovely.

How is the feeding going?

Stefka Wed 14-Nov-07 09:28:22

\not very well. I have cracked nipples and thrush and it is very painful. I am giving the situation till Sunday because at the moment feeding is pretty traumatic. I really want to breast feed but I am in a lot of pain. I really hope I can get it sorted though. The support I am getting is great - the midwifes were lovely and I have a good health visitor so hopefully I will get there.

foxymagoo Thu 15-Nov-07 13:15:37

Good for you for persevering... Have you tried nipple shields? I had blocked milk ducts for first two weeks and had to clench my teeth during left side feed but it thankfully went away..

Remember there is also the Breastfeeding support group at 1.30pm in the Dawson Centre in Langlees. It is run by Health Visitors who specialise in b/feeding...

Remember whatever you decide: happy Mum = happy baby!!

foxymagoo Thu 15-Nov-07 13:16:21

I should have added - every Wednesday

Stefka Thu 15-Nov-07 18:10:22

I did try a shield but it didn't help - I might give it another go though. I was planning to go to that group - although at the moment I haven't dared to leave the house! I said I will give it till Sunday then review the situation. I hope I can manage to keep going.

Hi all,

Also living in falkirk. have a 2 year old daughter and 4 month old son.

just thought i'd add that with dd i went to the breastfeeding support group in stenhousemuir and met a great bunch of people and with their help breastfed dd until 7 months. now breastfeeding again but haven't made it to the breastfeeding group. the logistics are difficult with a toddler! we also go to a playgroup at larbert east church mondat morning and there is a baby group there too. one of the best. and on thursday morning - one at pentecostal church in larbert - babies welcome. i'm not a member of either church - anyone welcome. dawson centre also has toddler group on monday pm and friday am.

library bounce and tickle sessions are really good as are the rhyme time sessions for when they outgrow the baby sessions. wish they were longer and on more often too.

forgot about the group at st andrews church. what time again?

anyway, nice talking and i'll pop back later.

congrats on the new baby stefka!

p x

Stefka Fri 15-Feb-08 21:08:03

Hi and thanks

Feeding is sorted now - it took 11 weeks but I am so glad I stuck at it.

Been meaning to check out bounce and tickle. Also was wondering what time the St Andrews thing was on at. Is it Thursday afternoons?

HollyandNoah Thu 19-Jun-08 23:21:39

hey,
Iv just joined, i'm from falkirk too! bainsford, i have a son, he's almost 6 months. just thought i'd say hi!

Stefka Tue 01-Jul-08 12:34:49

HollyandNoah Wed 09-Jul-08 22:00:24

Hello,

oo stenhousemuir, you're very near by. xx

lyrasilver Mon 21-Jul-08 12:17:21

Hi, just joined this site... usually to be found on another one or fb.I am in Falkirk too, with 3 boys.

mibbes Tue 22-Jul-08 18:44:15

Hi I'm in Larbert - am 20 weeks pregnant. Anyone care to share any top tips with a novice first timer ? Did anyone go to local NCT classes ? Any pregnancy yoga/exercise classes nearby ? I noticed that the aquanatal classes at the mariner centre are on Wed afternoon which is no use as I work full time. All tips and advice very welcome smile

HollyandNoah Tue 22-Jul-08 19:20:42

hey!

I really wanted to go to aqua natal also! But didnt:|. Looks so much fun though! I only made one class, in grangemouth sports complex.
Good luck xxx

lyrasilver Thu 24-Jul-08 10:29:31

Hi Mibbles! Didnt do any classes so cant help there... but with my boys ages ranging from 13 to 2 I have gone thru most of the hiccups! Hope all goes well for you.

lingobaby Sat 26-Jul-08 21:04:07

Hi,

I'm Fiona, first-time mum to Ruairi aged 8 months. I stay in Stenhousemuir, seems there are quite a few Larbert/Stenie folks on here! I've just posted up some details on the "what's on" about play sessions I'm running at Larbert Library from 29th August so let me know if you might be interested!

Hope everyone has been enjoying the great weather

Fiona

hollyandnoah Sun 27-Jul-08 15:10:20

Hey Fiona

Fancy meeting you here! Cant wait till lingo baby! x

lingobaby Sun 27-Jul-08 21:29:03

Hi Holly,

I thought it was you Hope you and Noah have been enjoying all this lovely sunshine! If it's nice tomorrow Ruairi is going for his first dunk in his paddling pool, I might join him!

Really looking forward to meeting you both, and your sister and Molly

See you in August!

mibbes Sun 27-Jul-08 22:12:33

Hello Larbert/Stenny ladies and those from anywhere near Falkirk - anyone gone to NCT classes locally ?
The weather has been amazing today grin shame I have to go to work tomorrow sad

hollyandnoah Mon 28-Jul-08 11:23:47

Yeh, the weather is amaaaazing!

Aww Ruairi is such a sweet name! Him and Noah are quite close in ages. You should join him, but it doesn't look as nice today :| rubbish.

Holly

mibbes Fri 01-Aug-08 19:45:31

lingobaby just read your link to the French for babies classes smile, I really hope these are still running next summer as I'd love to bring my baby along (not due until Dec 08). I did my degree in French so keen the wee one is exposed to foreign languages as something fun grin. If you ever need a helper give me a shout wink. I'll let my friends with babies know about this too.

Are there any other local PG ladies out there or is it just me ?

Joj26 Tue 05-Aug-08 22:03:23

Hi, am same as mibbes, would be interested in the French for babies classes for next year (my baby due end Nov) - are there any plans? I did French degree and keep threatening my husband that baby and I will be conversing in French about him and he will have no clue

lyrasilver Fri 15-Aug-08 17:15:47

Anyone been to the new Sportsters yet? Report please smile

lingobaby Tue 19-Aug-08 22:36:10

Hello!

Sorry, haven't logged on for a week or two, I didn't realise some of you were looking for lingobaby info! Things are going really well for the classes and I plan on running them until June 09, taking a summer break and then back again in Aug 09 so that will probably fit in with the ages that your babies will be by this time next year (joj26 and mibbes). If it's not too much trouble, could you send me a wee email to lingobaby@googlemail.com ? It's just so I can keep you informed of things. lingobaby was featured in The Times last weekend and I'm now doing sessions through in Glasgow and will be starting in Stirling in October so it's all gone a bit mad!

Fiona

lorna29 Tue 14-Oct-08 21:39:17

Hey there.

I thought i would join in! i am a Falkirk Mum too - only moved to Falkirk 7 years ago though. I have two daughters 2 and half and 9 months old. Great to hear from other mums in this area.
I was wondering if anyone knows of any toddler groups that run on a monday? They all seem to be on days that i work

thanks!

saraloui Sat 13-Dec-08 22:33:49

Hi just joined site, only moved to Falkirk in May (from Cornwall) so don't know many people yet and would love to hear from other mums.

I have a 22 month old son and a 4 month old daughter so have been pretty busy since we got here!!!!

Lorna29 Lochgreen toddlers meet on a Mon if that's any help.

StefkaSnowAngel Tue 30-Dec-08 20:47:04

I had forgotten about this post! Saraloui I think I met you at the Dr's - your DD was poorly with a cold if it is you. I hope she's better now!

MinaLoy Thu 01-Jan-09 21:53:03

Ooo, a little bit of activity on the Falkirk page. I've lived in Falkirk for a few years, now I've got 21 month old twin girls and though I've got twin-mum friends in Bo'ness, (where our twin and multiples club meets) I haven't really met many local mums. So if anyone fancies it, may I suggest the Toddle-Round at Falkirk library on Jan 9th? 10.30am.

I would but I have to pick ds up from nursery at 11.30am. Any afternoon would be fine?

MinaLoy Thu 01-Jan-09 22:12:51

Great name, can I change mine to "They'renotmymonsters"? Yes afternoons are fine, where do you hang out in Falkirk? We tend to stick to the library coz it's free and warm!

Stefka Fri 02-Jan-09 11:28:14

I've not been to toddle round yet as DS is only 14 months and not walking yet. Did you know you need to get tickets for it now? I noticed that when I was in the Library the other day - I think they are released a couple of weeks before hand.

There is someone with twin girls who uses the creche at the Mariner centre - that's not you is it?

MinaLoy Wed 07-Jan-09 12:14:08

Yes that's me at the Mariner all right! And Yes, you have to get tickets for Toddle Round now, they say it's because all the buggies parked in the library represent a fire risk!!! Which sounds so daft but maybe they have a point - they do clog the place up. I have my tickets though! If DS isn't walking yet maybe you should go to Bounce and Tickle? That's brilliant too.

conkertree Wed 07-Jan-09 16:23:52

ooh is there a creche at the mariner centre? didnt know that - i live a wee bit outside falkirk, near kilsyth, but have been trying to find some sort of exercise that i could do on days that i am at home with ds (other than walk cause am getting bored with that).

MinaLoy Thu 08-Jan-09 13:14:59

The creche at the mariner centre is AMAZING! Eileen and Alison are the ladies who run it, they have run it for about 18 years and they are absolute sweeties. It's absurdly cheap as well - a pound an hour! Oh, don't get me started on the wonders of the Mariner Centre...I would give it the Nobel Prize for saving my sanity.

Stefka Sat 10-Jan-09 19:49:34

Ohhh I know who you are! I have discovered my first mumsnetter! My DS uses the creche while I am using the gym. I see your girls there a lot. I agree that the creche is fantastic, DS loves it.

hi all,
can is suggest storytime in Falkirk library on wed morning at 10.30. I take my 1 year old son and 3 year old daughter and both love it. No tickets, not very busy and under-rated. The librarians are lovley and both my dc got a present at Christmas when they went. They read a few stories and colour in.

Stefka Sat 10-Jan-09 20:24:38

That sounds nice. My DS has just turned one - would he like it do you think?

MinaLoy Sun 11-Jan-09 11:13:56

Hello Stefka! How funny, i don't know who you are but will be looking closely at all the mums at the creche now!

Storytime sounds lovely, perhaps I will bunk the gym and come along...then we can all look furtively at one another and guess who is who. Oh, except that me having twins is a bit of a give-away!

It's REALLY nice that there is some activity on these pages.

Stefka Sun 11-Jan-09 12:32:47

I agree! Is the storytime on every Wednesday then? Or is it just once a month like bounce and tickle?

I think you would know me if you saw me as I am often using the gym when you are at your class. I'll say hello next time!

MinaLoy Sun 11-Jan-09 13:09:37

Hmmm, Justneedsomesleep tell us about storytime - is it every week? I don't think I've seen posters up. Just wondering whether the twins are too wee...21 months but it's a miracle if they sit still long enough for me to read to them. I'd hate them to wreck the joint while the other kids were trying to listen...

Stefka Sun 11-Jan-09 13:12:47

My DS might be too young too - he's only 15 months.

Hi again, Stefka my ds is only fifteen months old now and he enjoys it! If not there is a little play table which keeps him amused as well as a huge floor to ceiling window which looks out onto the street - great fun!

Minaloy - It's on every wednesday and i will prob be there this week with ds and dd so hope to see you all! I will be wearing a red rose in my coat pocket (so as you can all recognise me)grin

Truly is very good and they have them at Larbert too on a tues at 10, but even though it's closer, i prefer the falkirk one.

mibbes Sun 11-Jan-09 17:24:46

Quick question ladies - I am a new mum and my DS is nearly 6 weeks old. How old do they have to be to go into the Mariner creche ? It sounds great and I'd love to start exercising again in the next few weeks. Are there good classes or do people just use the gym ? I had a c-section so prob have to wait a few more weeks before doing anything too exertive.

Stefka Sun 11-Jan-09 19:08:55

You can take them to the creche from birth. They are fantastic really. There are classes and there is also a gym. I joined the gym myself and some people do the classes.

I will pop along on Wednesday. I will look for you! Perhaps we should have a code word wink

conkertree Sun 11-Jan-09 21:00:38

another question for you Falkirk experts - what times is the creche available at, and do you book, or just turn up?

I havent been to the Mariner centre before, but is there a swimming pool and gym in the same bit?

Steka - the eagle has landed or if you followed all that fishy nonsense, I believe COD would suffice!grin

Stefka Sun 11-Jan-09 21:41:53

The creche is open from 9:30-12:30 in the morning then 1:30-3:20 in the afternoon. You don't need to book, it's first come, first served. I have only had to wait for a place once. Upstairs is a gym and down stairs is the swimming pool and a studio and gym hall where they do the classes.

I'm afraid I have missed the Cod stuff - I have no clue what it is all about!

I missed it too (read about it enough since though!), but if you were at storytime and said to your ds that you were having cod for dinner I would know it was you! grin

MinaLoy Sun 11-Jan-09 22:26:12

Wooo hooo! mibbes and conkertree gird your loins ladies. There is the most amazing class (called Alan's ladies' class) that happens on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, starting at ten am, ending whenever Alan jolly well pleases (usually 11.30 or so). It's a mixed ability, cardio and weights class and it's a lot of fun (some of the ladies have been going for eight years!) It's a right laugh but it is hard work...I have lost eighteen kilos since I started (just over a year ago). It was my first ever introduction to exercise (bookish girl, I was) and now I'm mad about it. But if you don't fancy such hard work, you can put babes in the creche and go and have a swim, or even just drink coffee in the cafe. Hooray for the Mariner.

tassisssss Sun 11-Jan-09 22:35:09

Hello girls! I'm so glad I've found this thread as I've been meaning to check out the creche at the mariner centre for months. I'd like to be able to take my toddler swimming but can't take her and our baby together. Plus I'd like to leave both while I have a quick run at the gym. This could be perfect. How long can I leave them for? Are the babies and toddlers in together? Is it a pound an hour per child? (agree v v cheap!). Maybe see some of you there.

Stefka Mon 12-Jan-09 07:50:13

How much is that class by the way? Alan has tried to recruit me a couple of times but I always just go to the gym!

You can leave them for up to two hours and everyone is in together. It's a pound an hour but I think a second child gets a cheaper rate but only have one so don't quote me on that!

conkertree Mon 12-Jan-09 09:25:07

wow this all sounds great - cant believe ds is 17 months old and i've never discovered the creche before.

need to get my butt in gear and get down there. alan's class sounds great for once i am no longer pg - maybe a bit high energy for straight after the birth though, but something to aim for.

MinaLoy Mon 12-Jan-09 09:45:20

Alan will laugh when he hears there's been a recruiting drive on the internet!

Remember the class is for everyone, and you can do things at your own pace. When he says "Ten pushups" you can either do ten pushups at your own pace, creaking and panting and keeping your knees on the floor, and get left behind as the others race ahead (which is what I do) or you can keep up with the others by only doing four when they do ten!

But by having some really fit people there, and such a motivated trainer, it pushes you on. Come and try!

Stefka Mon 12-Jan-09 14:25:37

Is it really full on? I am really not that fit! Also is it very expensive? Not sure how DH would feel about having to pay for a class on top of the gym. It does sound fun though. How long is it btw?

MinaLoy Mon 12-Jan-09 20:23:35

It costs three something...

It is full-on. Alan has had rugby players leave his mixed class halfway through because they're feeling nauseous, that's how strenuous it is! And he sometimes does a one-off "partners welcome" class, when the men all flake out.

But, like I said before, people do work at their own pace (ie cheat!) and it's a great laugh. It's the cameraderie that keeps me going, TBH.

Stefka Mon 12-Jan-09 20:45:05

Ha I like the idea of the partners class - can just imagine DH trying to get through that.

If I am feeling brave I might give it a go on Friday.

MinaLoy Mon 12-Jan-09 20:58:02

Yeah Friday would be the soonest I could make it, that's if i haven't completely terrified myself out of it by telling you lot how hard it is! Friday would be my first time back since pre-Christmas.........

Stefka Mon 12-Jan-09 21:47:24

I went to the gym once last week - it hurt. Hope to get my lazy backside there tomorrow but I am not making any promises!

Going to try for story time on Wednesday too. You guys have made me all busy.

Stefka Wed 14-Jan-09 15:46:20

Thanks again for telling us about story time. Dareh had a great time today and is peekabooing all over the place now.

Glad you both enjoyed it! Hope to see you there next week!
smile

MinaLoy Thu 15-Jan-09 14:17:33

Hi ladies; yes that was fun, meeting my first two mumsnetters - Stefka you hit the nail on the head when you said it was like going on a blind date!

See you soon I hope!

Hi,
Found some falkirk mums! New to this site. have two boys 13 weeks and 4 years thought i would say hello! Im in stenhousemuir and work as an early years officer but loving my mat leave and spending time with my two boys.

MinaLoy Mon 19-Jan-09 17:36:54

Hello and welcome to the Falkirk thread! It's nice to see activity on these pages isn't it? has anyone else seen posters for a new toddler group at St Andrews Church on a Thursday? I'm contemplating it...

gscrym Mon 19-Jan-09 17:49:40

Where are you in Stenhousemuir Mummyto2princes, I'm there too.

MinaLoy Mon 19-Jan-09 17:58:10

I'm know I'm very sad but.......I'm really getting a big kick from seeing "Falkirk Local" on the Active Convos page, so really I'm just bumping this!

Stefka Tue 20-Jan-09 10:05:25

I am sad too because I also like seeing the thread active! Not see then posters for the toddler group although I think Dareh is a bit young yet. Won't be long though I don't think as he took two very tiny steps the other day.

hi minaloy im in arthurs drive in stenhousemuir where r u lynette x

sorry just realised it was gscrym that asked where i was doh!

Hi guys,
thought i'd add that i went to the toddlers at st andrews when alyssa was very little - seemed very nice but think i was too shell-shocked to appreciate it!
Also a very good one at Larbert East Church on a Monday morning which I'll be starting around March time. Children have to be about 17-18 months old to start.

No storytime for me today as we are all sick/recovering from illness......sad

Stefka Thu 22-Jan-09 08:37:24

Ahh wondered where you were! We popped along to story time today but Dareh was more interested in looking out the window. Ah well what can you do!

saraloui Thu 22-Jan-09 11:20:44

Hi Stefka - if it was Meeks Road surgery then it was probably me, Ishbel fine now. I haven't looked at these pages for a while as I've been on hoiday, I seem to have missed a lot. I've used the creche at the Mariner since Ishbel was 5 weeks old, she goes in there while I take my toddler to minigym, it's great and the ladies who run it are lovely.

saraloui Thu 22-Jan-09 11:23:42

Ooops - I mean I've been on holiday not hoiday!

Stefka Thu 22-Jan-09 15:00:43

Yes it was meeks road - I remember you saying you had moved up from Cornwall and talking to you about St Ives. Glad she is all better now!

hiya - just to say i was at st andrews church baby group today-was quite nice quite a few people there also a toddler area upstairs which was well resources and the ladies organising it were very helpful. Also was at falkirk free church on mon afternnon and was really good - lots of mums and babies/toddlers and everyone very friendly.

Hi ladies, sorry not been on here for a while. The creche at the Mariner sounds fab- do you have to book?

I would love to meet up with anyone (my 3 are nearly 4, 2.5 and 9mths). I live in Whitburn so don't really hand out in Falkirk tho I have been to soft play there before.

Also, we are trying to rent out our spare room. It's a double bedroom. If anyone knows of anyone who might be interested could you let me know? I would need to take references.
It will be £65 pw.

Thanks

MinaLoy Fri 23-Jan-09 15:45:26

Well done Dareh! Get walking and then you can come to the St Andrews Church toddler group!

We went yesterday and it was great. Song, story, snack, lots of friendly people.

Shall we all try to go to Storytime at Falkirk library on Wednesday? Wearing "cod" badges to be recognisable to one another!

MinaLoy Fri 23-Jan-09 16:12:05

Hi thatsnotmymonster, no you don't have to book the creche at the Mariner, it's first come first served, but in eighteen months we've never been turned away, so it's usually fine! Their phone number is (01324) 503750.

hiya
what time is the storytime on at my two are 4 and 14 weeks is it ok for the two of them to go? If its in the morning thats cool cause we have enjoyaball in the afternoon!

hi mummyto2princes, i think it's fine for both to go. It's not very busy and toddler/pre-school is who it's aimed at. I took ds from when he was born as his sister went. He mostly slept and fed though! Now the big window and little play table are the attention grabbers when he goes! Hoping he'll pay attention eventually....oh well...grin

will be there on wed all - feeling much better, took a trip to loch lomond shores today as it was so wet....wet there too!

forgot to say - it's morning 10.30am

Toddler group sounds fab! I've never been turned away from the creche either. I think I had to wait once for about five mintues. Dareh had his first ever dirty nappy there this week and Alison said she was having a week of it with both the twins having had one too!

I am up for storytime again. Dareh has fun even if he doesn't pay that much attention to the stories!

Hi Stefka - I remember you and your lovely little boy, great to speak to you again.

I'd be up for storytime although my little horror (2 in Feb) isn't very good at sitting still.

Hi Minaloy - what's a "cod badge"?

Stefka Fri 23-Jan-09 20:58:22

From what I understand Cod is an old member who had leave for some reason. People refer to her a lot but it is before my time and I am not really sure what it is actually all about!

Think i will try the story time on wed morning.So its 1030 at falkirk library? I will be the one with the cheeky looking boy who prob wont sit still!

Justneedsomesleep - I went to Morrisons after the library and saw that they have the Financial Times. The lady says they don't get many copies and they sell out quickly most days. But I bet WH Smith's carries it too.

hi minaloy,
thanks, wandered up to whsmith and got their last copy.
don't think i am their typical FT buyer - baby in buggy and toddler in hand! grin
I like to peruse the stock markets while ironing, changing nappies, washing faces and reading bedtime stories!
Actually, in a previous life, i have been to the FT offices.....oh when i had a 'proper' life....

Anyway, just need to get myself a briefcase for the party and I'm all set - Mr Dow Jones.

See you next week!
read aibu!

MinaLoy Wed 28-Jan-09 22:38:22

Off to read AIBU now...

No storytime for me tomorrow as I have a meeting in a school about some work. I also have about six weeks worth of work with a theatre company on Wednesdays so won't be there for a while. Hope to get to the toddler group again though - thought that was lovely.

MinaLoy Fri 06-Feb-09 13:44:10

Hey Stefka that's exciting about the theatre company work! We didn't make it to the toddler group yesterday but we'll be there next week. We DID make it to Toddle Round this morning and it was great as usual. I think I spotted a Mumsnetter or two, but the blind-date shyness kicked in I'm afraid...

Hello everyone - I haven't made it to storytime yet as my two have been struck down by colds and bad moods, is it on every Wed?

MinaLoy Mon 09-Feb-09 16:37:26

Hmmm, we've caught the bad moods too I think. Yes storytime is every Wednesday at 10.30, with colouring-in after the stories. See you there maybe?

saraloui Wed 11-Feb-09 11:54:25

Will try and get there next week, missed today as bad moods and colds still running rampant - the joy of kids! My husband thinks I spend all day playing and relaxing hmm

Stefka Thu 12-Feb-09 21:51:13

My husband used to think that too until he had to do a couple of days at home himself!
