Hi anyone in the Leicestershire area?

colditz Sat 09-Apr-11 22:06:40

yes, here. melton mowbray.

Me too...streets away from Colditz smile

1980 Sat 09-Apr-11 22:08:34

Hi,might be abit of a random question but how do i put something to meet mates?

1980 Sat 09-Apr-11 22:09:18

This is all new to me only joined tonight

Mumsnet local (where you posted) has sections where events are advertised etc, so you could try those. Most people keep posting on here to build "friendships" and then lots of people arrange meet ups.

When I toyed with moving to Melton I put a call out to the Melton ladies for advice and later had a meet up where I met Colditz and Mirage.

The key is whether you are looking for instant friendships, how old your children are etc? If you're new to an area or a new mum for instance and want instant contacts dare i say (netmums) are good for playdates etc.

You'll always get a Mnetter willing to meet up if you stick around to chat first.

Im new ish to the area,I live in Mountsorrel i can drive though.I have 2 kiddies boy whos 3 and a daughter whos 11wks.
Im going to keep posting on here then and hopefully make afew friends.
Thanks for your help.

I'll meet you if you like. My DD is 2yrs 4 months, she's a bit of a loon, more boistrious than any boy grin and I just realised if you are new, you may need me to explain that DD is daughter and DS is son.

enjoylife Sat 09-Apr-11 22:51:52

That be great thanks.Do i come back on this bit when i log of,im sorry all the questions.Il try and remember that dd and ds.

enjoylife Sat 09-Apr-11 22:52:41

I changed my nickname but thats still me

I'll private message you later, you'll see an envelope come up in your inbox at very top of page. So you won't lose me! Then just dive into all the boards and have fun. Words of advice, mumsnetters don't use kisses or the term Hun, and they will be brutally honest to the point of being cutting!

So so long as you can hold your own, you'll get the most from it. I've been on here years and I love it.

enjoylife Sun 10-Apr-11 19:08:16

Right ok thanks,il try to not take things to heart which are said on here then.And keep the hun and kisses away.Im going have a good nose through it all now.

Have you tried the SureStart centre in Mountsorrel? They have lots of groups for little ones and you might meet a few people too.

enjoylife Mon 11-Apr-11 15:27:50

I can do anytime. Enjoylife I asked my friend about activities as we discussed she said there's a brilliant group at st marys church in sileby. 9.30 til 12 I think she said and it's only 50p, Thursday morns.

She said theres another at another church in sileby think it's st gregors on a tues morn. She says that one often does day trips like to stonehurst farm and the church pays for all the kids. Adding it to the thread in case I forget in person.

enjoylife Mon 18-Apr-11 08:53:45

Hi,Thanks alot for that Thedoctorswife,iv found afew groups in the next village from me as well in Rothley.
Is everyone still up for Thursday to go Bradgate park?

I'm up for it. I'm moving house Friday so late morn or early afternoon is best for me.

enjoylife Mon 18-Apr-11 15:55:55

Il be the one running around after my 3yr old trying to keep him to stand with me and his sister.

Brill see you there to make it easier I'll wear my bright fushia pink jacket so you know it's me and my dd is a chunky blonde lunatic.

Choufleur Mon 18-Apr-11 19:40:39

Booo. I can''t come. I'm at work. I've only just spotted this thread.

EllAEllO Mon 18-Apr-11 19:43:30

You'll hear us before you see us, DS has a very loud voice blush

Just found this, would love to come to a MN meetup as I'm in Leics too (Wigston) but sadly I'm not around on 21st Please have another one soon so I can come and join the fun! grin

therealmrsbeckham Tue 19-Apr-11 13:24:40

enjoylife Tue 19-Apr-11 19:56:26

See you all Thursday at 1:00 at the entrance in Cropston carpark.Just incase i dont make it back on here by then.

EllAEllO Thu 21-Apr-11 10:25:23

I'm sorry, I'm not going to be able to make it either (was really looking forward to it too sad)
I've got a leaky pipe flooding the kitchen ceiling and need to wait for plumber. Stuck in on a lovely day= Boo!

Hope you all have a great time, and if you meet up again, I'd still like to meet up. smile

radiohelen Thu 21-Apr-11 13:17:47

I've only just seen this. I'd have come but we are in the grip of a terrifying chicken pox/diarrhea/vomiting combo. I'd give anything to have been out this afternoon. Lets do another one soon.

superv1xen Thu 21-Apr-11 13:19:42

OMG i totally forgot about this!!!!! damn mumsnet made it drop out of my "threads im on"


silly scatty sod arent i

hope you had a good time!

we waited for you Super V! We had this horrfying moment that we may have left you at another entrance.

We just enjoylife and I in the end, we had a great time. She even let my DD ride on her buggy board which means I'll have to have another DC now just to get DD one as she loved it. Thank you enjoylife.

We'll def do another one soon shall we. But I'd suggest everyone marks this thread to watch so it doesnt drop of your list (it dropped off mine too). Then we can arrange something again and PM you if necessary.

superv1xen Thu 21-Apr-11 20:15:40

oh i am so sorry again! but i am glad you had a fab time!

i am definitely up for another one, will watch this thread so it doesn't disappear (actually didn't realise i could do that! blush )

therealmrsbeckham Thu 21-Apr-11 20:18:12

Hi Ladies, glad you had a nice time. Let us know when your planning another meet up smile

enjoylife Thu 21-Apr-11 21:40:35

Had a brill time,its a shame you all couldnt make it.But we all will have to do it again soon,Thanks doctorswife.
Im going to try and work out how to watch this thread now so i wont miss out on the next meet up.
