Hiya Jaquelinehyde, come along, out of towners very welcome!
DP, me and DS just moved to Eastbourne recently and it's all new to us. We went for a drive in the countryside around Battle last week, just to explore a bit. Wow it's pretty! You guys don't do ugly houses do you?! Lovely pubs too
Ooh replies, brilliant. Hi everyone (We've been away this weekend - no mumsnet!)
I'm easy on time - what would suit you?
About the weekend / weekday thing, I was thinking of having a picnic with DPs welcome too which is why I though the weekend would be good. We're new to the area, and basically I thought the more the merrier. What do you think? Would you actually prefer mums only? If so, what about Monday 23rd?
Or, we could stick with the Saturday date, and organise a weekday one in the future.
We were in Gildridge Park yesterday, it's lovely. I think it's my favourite park at the moment
If any of you out of towners fancy something to do today, don't forget it's the last day of Airbourne
I say out-of-towners as you can't possibly miss it if you're in Eastbourne! The sky has been full of planes doing the most amazing acrobatics for days. We're pretty high up, and a Red Arrow flew past our window so close you could see the pilot!
DS, who is obsessed with all forms of transport anyway, is in his element
I've been trying to arrange a meet-up but it's not proving easy! (See failed attempt above!) I suspect it's because it's a relatively small group of us here, so it's just harder to get people together.
Do you fancy arranging something maybe, and hoping that if we have something fixed, others will come too? In general, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays are good for me. DS is 20 months, I thought a park (with a cafe?) would be easy for all ages but I'm open to suggestions.
