Schools off for fortnight.
I'll go mad without conversation!!

Anyone fancy meeting somewhere?
Eglinton Park?
Saltcoats beach?
Bring own snacks and drinks
Kids can run around like loons!

A winter picnic on the beach sounds like a brilliant idea, can we run around like loons too?

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 20:02:29

PS I know it's meant to be Spring

cas1979 Mon 01-Apr-13 20:19:56

KilwinningMacdog Mon 01-Apr-13 20:24:58

Wednesday fine with me!
What about the beach at Saltcoats, beside the big swing park on the prom?

What time would suit people? Pre-lunch best for me

KilwinningMacdog Mon 01-Apr-13 20:25:31

Sorry. TOTALLY misread that cas!!
What about Thursday?

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 20:28:02

Cas can't do Wednesday, Mac smile How about Thursday, I would like the beach, best, but am happy to fit in

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 20:28:40

cross-post! Thursday sounds like it might be a plan!

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 20:31:43

I presume we are talking Thursday 4th - or do you all mean the 11th? I don't know when the school hols are

KilwinningMacdog Mon 01-Apr-13 20:36:02

Yep. Thinking Thursday 4th. I know it's short notice...

KilwinningMacdog Mon 01-Apr-13 20:36:23

Schools off this week and next

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 20:38:10

Thanks Mac 4th is good for me, sometimes short notice seems to work better, people tend to know for sure whether they'll be free

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 20:40:43

yay, hope to meet your DD soon, though it doesn't sound like you're free on the 4th, if not maybe you and I and anyone who happens to be free could do Eglington on one of the days when you are free and I'll tell you all about the picnic on the beach!

yay1975 Mon 01-Apr-13 20:43:22

I have too much on this week but you all have fun all the same smile

cas1979 Mon 01-Apr-13 20:47:05

Hi Thursday is totally cool with me x

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 21:00:24

Hurray cas, we'll need to pick a place and a time to meet - how about the South car park by the mini-roundabout at 11.00? Shall I make a 'MN local' badge - I have got a little sign but I think it might blow away on the prom!

KilwinningMacdog Mon 01-Apr-13 21:08:45

11am at the car park sounds fab!

cas1979 Mon 01-Apr-13 21:14:00

Yeah that's good for me x x A wee sign would be good grin x

GleamingInStevenston Mon 01-Apr-13 22:30:56

I'll make a sign! cas I will PM you my mobile number in case you can't find us or want to text as you get to the car park so that we can wave madly at you ( Mac already has it as we have recently met up)

tuckingfits Mon 01-Apr-13 23:38:05

Thanks for alerting me to this gleaming smile. Unfortunately I can't make it but I would really like to come along to one of your meet ups so I'll keep an eye open for the next one. Stupid work!

cas1979 Tue 02-Apr-13 09:30:59

Thanks gleaming, looking forward to it smile See ya all there

GleamingInStevenston Tue 02-Apr-13 10:04:29

That's a shame tucking, but we will eventually organise one which coincides with you being free!

ShariMacD Tue 02-Apr-13 14:49:13

Thanks for the message for this one, fingers crossed I'll be able to make it!! I'm not 100% sure exactly where I'm going but I'll find it. Am l

ShariMacD Tue 02-Apr-13 14:50:06

Silly phone, hadn't finished that last message! I'm really looking forward to meeting people!!

GleamingInStevenston Tue 02-Apr-13 17:09:40

Excellent Shari, we'd love to see you, will pm you my mobile number in case you can't find us or want us all to wave to you so you know you aren't approaching random people in a car park! How are you getting there - car/bus/train - if you let us know, I am sure one of us can provide directions. The car park I am thinking of is on the seafront, by the promenade just by a mini roundabout at the junction of Ardrossan Road, Burn Road and South Crescent Road

KilwinningMacdog Tue 02-Apr-13 18:32:53

Looks like a fun meet in the making!! Looking forward to meeting you all, Tucking and yay, hopefully you'll make the next one grin

ShariMacD Thu 04-Apr-13 15:15:09

GleamingInStevenston Thu 04-Apr-13 18:04:17

Lovely to see/meet everyone today, my ears and feet have just about thawed out... maybe Eglington next time (so we can warm up in the cafe!)

yay1975 Thu 04-Apr-13 22:23:38

well lady's i was in killie and it was warm well you sound like you had fun in the wind by the sounds of it roll on to next meet up wed or thursday i,m about smile

GleamingInStevenston Fri 05-Apr-13 08:23:18

I probably won't be about on Wed or Thurs now, my mother's much delayed knee replacement operation has just been moved from Monday to Thursday, ao I need to be in Glasgow to take her into Gartnavel on Wednesday, then around to see her post-surgery on Thursday, then up and down for visiting until I can spring her home, when I'll need to go and stay with her for a few days at least

KilwinningMacdog Sat 06-Apr-13 20:27:41

I'm out for this week too.
Busy week ahead hmm

KilwinningMacdog Sat 06-Apr-13 20:28:16

Good luck to your mum Gleaming!

GleamingInStevenston Sat 06-Apr-13 21:36:11
