Prompted by the looking for a friend thread, where 3 of us are in or near Swindon.. but the more the merrier!

Who's in?

RubyCharlie Thu 16-Feb-12 19:24:21

I'm near Swindon too

TettyLouBar Thu 16-Feb-12 19:53:16

Hellooooo! Found ya! I'm up for a meet to! smile

VeryHungryKatypillar Thu 16-Feb-12 19:57:44

Ooh, hello fellow Swindon-ish people, I'm here too! I wonder if I know any of you?!

I'm in.
<clicks post message nervously>

Hello everyone!

Shall we pick a date? And any suggestions for a location? After 3 years here I still barely know the place.

Coffee or booze? That's an important question!

VeryHungryKatypillar Thu 16-Feb-12 20:07:27

Old Town good for both booze and coffee. Fair amount of choice. I don't mind either, although coffee might be easier for me personally so I don't need to coordinate free evenings with DH... Happy to go with flow. Will check back later, off out shortly.

TettyLouBar Fri 17-Feb-12 08:24:15

What about coffee this time and booze to follow soon? grin

I'll have to bring DD2 as she's only 1, but I'm free tues, wed or thurs mornings as DD1 in preschool.

we could meet somewhere in Swindon?

VeryHungryKatypillar Fri 17-Feb-12 08:40:14

Sounds like a plan - I'll have to bring DD2 too, she's 8mo. I'm free tues, weds and thurs as a rule too (DD1 also in preschool!). turkeyboots, RubyCharlie that any good for you? Can you do daytime?

How about meeting in the coffee shop bit of the Deli on Wood street in Swindon's Old Town?

turkeyboots Fri 17-Feb-12 09:29:59

That sounds like a plan. I can do Thurs or Fri morning, but only for an hour or so as need to do some work. Or Saturdays suit me, but woul have DD (5) and DS (2) with me.

VeryHungryKatypillar Fri 17-Feb-12 12:47:14

Thurs 1st or 8th March then? Is 10am ish okay to fit your work around turkeyboots or are you a bit restricted??

turkeyboots Fri 17-Feb-12 13:43:45

I can't do the 1st, but the 8th suits me. 10am is fine.

What is the Deli on Wood St called? Think I know where that is.

VeryHungryKatypillar Fri 17-Feb-12 16:11:28

Cool. 8th ok for you TettyLou? RubyCharlie, might you be able to make it??

Deli is Balula's. Wood street is the one-way street in Old Town, best to park in the pay and display behind the Co-op and go through the alleyway to get to Wood Street.

RubyCharlie Sat 18-Feb-12 17:38:55

Hi sorry, tho Swindon is my nearest big town I'm still a bit too far away from rest of you I'm afraid sad I'm nearer Chippenham and Melksham. Thanks anyway smile

turkeyboots Mon 20-Feb-12 17:13:33

Bumping in case anyone else wants to join us!

TettyLouBar Mon 20-Feb-12 19:25:36

Hi I'm back - had a crazy busy weekend! Sorry for delay in replying to you all.
8th suits me too! smile
Don't know old town at all well though. I'll have a go at finding the Deli though. Wood Street?

Ruby I come in to chippenham quite a lot - I'll meet you?

VeryHungryKatypillar Tue 21-Feb-12 19:19:35

Well that's three of us then - any more Swindon/surrounds mners out there?

Old Town is not huge, you'll be fine!

TettyLouBar Thu 23-Feb-12 11:45:56

Thats done then. See you next week girls. I'll be wearing a MN scarf - no really blush

turkeyboots Sun 26-Feb-12 13:39:26

I'll be the red head, for those who won't recognise the MN scarf.

TettyLouBar Wed 07-Mar-12 19:21:57

Are we still up for meeting tomorrow then girls?

TettyLouBar Wed 07-Mar-12 21:07:03

I'm gutted to inform you I can't come tomorrow now, just found out we have an important delivery coming tomorrow and I have to wait in all flippin day. sad
sorry guys

VeryHungryKatypillar Thu 08-Mar-12 07:58:59

Oh no! Turkeyboots - do you want to rearrange? I know you've work to do, I'm on mat leave until May so can be fairly flexible...
If I don't hear back from you I'll head on up to Old Town in a bit!

Kellamity Thu 08-Mar-12 08:02:03

Oooh I live nearby! I can't make today but let me know when you're meeting up again and I'll tag along!

Kellamity Thu 08-Mar-12 08:03:25

Ruby - I'm very near Chippenham, in fact my dcs go to school in Chippenham! Give me a shout if you fancy a Starbucks coffee sometime smile

turkeyboots Thu 08-Mar-12 08:09:39

Good thing I checked! I can do Thurs pm or Fri next week, but will have DS (2) with me.

How is that for everyone? Otherwise Saturdays after 11 suit me well.

TettyLouBar Thu 08-Mar-12 08:13:22

Fri next week sounds good to me if you decide to rearrange. Sorry again for pulling out last minute. sad
Really looking forward to meeting you all smile
