It certainly is - I have to admit I'm loving that most things are now no more than a few miles away. I'd kind of got used to having to travel an hour to do anything or meet people back in London.
It would be great to meet up for a coffee in town or something along those lines!
Do you have DC? I have three, during the week one is in school (6) but the other two (4 and nearly 2) are with me most days except when I throw them into nursery on Thursdays so I can get stuff done. Happy to meet up with or without the DC
So sorry for disappearing!! I thought there hadn't been any more posts but I fail at spotting things I promise I wasn't ignoring you!!
I would suggest Tikkis in town, or the one at the top end of the Marlowes shopping centre - I can't remember the name, but it's near Sports Direct and one of the six million EE shops. Both of those have children's playthings at the back, so we could bring the little ones along.
Fridays I only have the smallest so maybe that would be a good day? I have absolutely nothing on any Fridays between now and Easter!
OliviaMumsnetHerts - Do you fancy coming along too?
inthevillage - Oooh, that would be fab as well! I'd have my six year old with me as it's the holidays but the other two would be at nursery.
Ha ha, what are the odds!! Must be something about round here that brings on this username!
It's my third username - my first one I had to give up when my MIL found it (at least she told me..) after I posted DS's name on baby names when we were naming him and she googled his new name. The second one had "Nigel" in it but then I soon spotted somebody else had a name with "Nigel" which had a similar sentiment. This one I picked after feeling sure nobody else had it.. then I think about a month or so after I spotted you!! I couldn't be doing with changing it yet again <guilt> and as I don't post a huge amount I just hoped nobody got us mixed up!
DH works during the week so I'd be on my own, but feel free to bring along your DH if you want to!
What Friday would work well for you? I can actually do tomorrow, but that's probably quite short notice! Otherwise any Friday pretty much
1pm would work out well for me as I have to take an unplanned trip to Berko in the morning to pick up our hopefully fixed car after it failed its MOT today, grr.
I'll PM you my number in case I'm likely to be late or anything and a brief description of what I look like!
Tikis (can never remember if it has one k or two!) is quite big and can get quite busy, so we might not be able to easily spot each other. I wonder if we should meet up some place nearby first? The forecast is for rain tomorrow, so how about just inside the doors of the Marlowes shopping centre opposite?
It was lovely meeting you too! Definitely must meet up again - I'm pretty sure it will be my DS being grumpy the next time.. or one of my DDs! Mondays are fairly busy as there's swimming lessons and stuff, but most of the time I'm free and there's always the weekends too
Hi. I live in Berko, moved up from London just over a year ago but have found it difficult to meet people due to work! I have a 2 year old boy and a 2week old girl. Would love to meet up for coffee/chat/moan!! Alex
