Come and say hello smile.
Let's see how many people will admit to living in this neck of the woods. grin

FairMidden Wed 11-Mar-09 17:25:54

Hello! How are you? Did you guys get together the other week then? I was really rough, it's taken ages to get rid but definitely on the mend now

Am feeling v guilty for neglecting Local of late, haven't even put any listings on, must get down to it at the weekend.

Flier Wed 11-Mar-09 17:29:39

Hello! <what happened to makkapakka?> No, we didn't get together in the end, will need to arrange another smile
Poor you sad Glad you're feeling better though - did you manage to get time off work?

re neglecting local - I know, I feel bad too, I keep meaning to add things

FairMidden Wed 11-Mar-09 17:32:50

MP bit the dust grin

I have a policy of not taking time off work. Suspect that doesn't help matters but when you go so long without having a sick day it becomes a matter of principle!

Are your DC fine? We will need to have another meet, you're right. There was talk of a mini meet this end, there's a soft play in Aviemore which might be worth investigating, Wallace went I think. Will let you know if something comes of this

Flier Wed 11-Mar-09 17:47:26

grin I know what you mean as a point of principle after a while

soft play - is that the one at the hotel complex? I could be up for that

FairMidden Wed 11-Mar-09 18:50:23

Nope, although I think there's some sort of bouncy castle affair at the hotel. The soft play is at the climbing wall. And of course there's always the funhouse.

I'm thinking maybe the week of the 23rd?

Wallace Wed 11-Mar-09 19:00:12

That's weird, FM - I just emailed you, like a minute ago shock (I think it's you?)

Wallace Wed 11-Mar-09 19:03:13

The hotel has a bouncy castle and inflatable slides and stuff (haven't been but my big kids have) but is only open at weekends at the moment.

Can't beat the funhouse to be honest! And if the weather is good their is a lovely playpark near the fun house

FairMidden Wed 11-Mar-09 19:18:23

Yes Wallace, have replied - spooky! I'm waiting to hear back from TM - she'd suggested next week to meet but I can't do next week at all, but the following week is OK. So we'll see what she says. Is the funhouse better than the new soft play bit, do you think?

Wallace Wed 11-Mar-09 19:29:13

According to my big kids the hotel thing is better for big kids than little ones (they would say that, wouldn't they!)

PS In previous post I meant to, of course, type "there" not "their" blush

FairMidden Wed 11-Mar-09 19:31:30

Ah, I see - I meant the new soft play at the climbing wall.

Hotel bit does look like it might be a bit, er, vigorous for littlies. grin

Wallace Wed 11-Mar-09 19:37:35

oops, was so distracted by my shameful typo I didn't read properly grin

Fun house is better definitely. Good thing about the one at the climbing wall is that it opens earlier - the fun house doesn't open til 12 duing the week in Winter.

Flier Wed 11-Mar-09 21:19:05

shock by the sounds of it; Aviemore has more play places than Inverness!

I'm sure I could due w/c 23rd, The funhouse was the place I was thinking of but couldn't remember blush

Rach1972 may be up for it too, although she is away just now

FairMidden Fri 13-Mar-09 08:47:52

Any other takers for a meet sometime the week after next then?

Flier Fri 13-Mar-09 11:13:21

I'll post something under meetups.

FairMidden Fri 13-Mar-09 13:30:09

Ah yes, good idea Flier, and one which didn't at any point cross my mind! blush

Just saying hi! Don't always remember to check the MN local bit!

Btw, anyone into or use cloth nappies? Just thought I'd mention that the Highland Real Nappy Project are doing a nappy event/nearly new sale here in Dingwall on Tuesday (17th) at the Greenhouse charity shop, from 10-11am! Just in case you or anyone you know needs some more cloth nappies!

Flier Sat 14-Mar-09 16:30:57

Hi Rachel, you must be about to give birth any day now (if you haven't already, that is).
Good luck, will you let us know how you're getting on?
Oh, and we'll see if we can get the HRNP added to the local whats on

Yes, not long now - due in just over 2.5 weeks. My last one was 5 days early - so I'm a bit curious when this one will show up! I'm feeling quite ready...if I can just get my house a bit more tidied up! LOL

Thanks - yes please if you can add the HRNP event to the local bit. Was going to investigate doing something like that last night, but didn't get that far!

FairMidden Mon 16-Mar-09 22:23:33

Bump

Twinklemegan Mon 16-Mar-09 22:36:39

Hellooo. Sorry I haven't got round to replying FM - it's manic here at the mo. As it turns out this week wouldn't be any good anyhow. The blardy new kitchen never turned up - I was going to get DS out of the house while DH made a start - and I now have horrible meeting this week to prepare for. Next week's good though. Friday 27th anyone? The kitchen's supposedly hmm arriving on Wednesday and DS is at nursery on Thursday.

The Funhouse sounds good to me - Wallace and I met up there eons ago.

FairMidden Mon 16-Mar-09 22:44:34

Aaaaaaaaah I can do any day next week except Friday! [sod's law]

Twinklemegan Mon 16-Mar-09 22:48:47

I could possibly do Tuesday? I'll have to check tomorrow though.

FairMidden Mon 16-Mar-09 22:53:42

I could do Tuesday but not until late morning.

We all have such hectic lives up here ... and they say nothing happens in the sticks, eh?!

Twinklemegan Mon 16-Mar-09 22:57:35

Believe me - late morning is fine by me!

Wallace? Flier?
