Evening all

Thought it would be a good idea to get everyone to post in one place and introduce themselves. That's means you oldies (tigerschick, choufleur and cyteen etc) and any newies. Plus see how many of us are here from leicester!

Let's get the Leicester Local Loud and Proud!

I'm 33, married, I have one DD who is 16 mths and I have recently been made redundant. Not sure yet when i'm going to look for another job, but will need to to before trying for second DC as will need a bigger house and therefore a bigger mortgage.

Whose next?

Yes - definitely at school! Tigerschick is about occasionally although I still see her in RL.

What's the facebook page?

stretch Fri 04-Feb-11 07:14:47

It's a group that lovebeing set up. So far only has 4 people added though!

It's private as well so we can post details of meetup/MN names without the whole world seeing.

I'll put my email on my profile and you can add me if you want.
