going to learn to gig row tommorrow at falmouth water sports - beginners session at 6pm if anyone wants a go!

Rosa Tue 03-Jul-07 14:50:31

Have fun Casbie. I had a go at gig rowing last summer and loved it. Would love to have a go again but will wait until it gets a bit warmer

casbie Tue 03-Jul-07 16:01:00

rosa - which club did you join?

tried out the helford river. lovely place, but everyone was a bit older than me (i'm 30-ish) and i felt a bit like i was at school!

Rosa Wed 04-Jul-07 20:37:00

I diddn't join but had a try at Gorran they seemed a mixed age group but I think more over the 30 ish . I want to have a go again I am on the north coast through and the thought of going out in waves puts me off !

casbie Thu 05-Jul-07 08:43:21

well, it was a good session last night.

the people were really friendly and lots of newbies like me.



they have 4 gigs at falmouth and lots of peoplein men's and ladies. really enjoyed being out on the water. was a bit rough, but had good fun. definately will go again!

Rosa Thu 05-Jul-07 14:21:59

Well I will be at the Gorran open day thing sometime in August but if I get overthere earlier I will have another go I think they train on a tues.... Good job it was last night and not today isn't it foul???

casbie Thu 05-Jul-07 15:24:33

it seems to be raining every day for about six weeks.
: (

last night it was choppy, but because we're in harbour, it wasn't as rough as out to sea. wish i could afford to go sailing, but maybe next year.

this year am trying to get fit and doing surfing lessons. been practising swimming to build up upper body strength and hope that rowing will help too. surfing is fun, but i'm quite nervous about getting dumped on!

do you surf rosa?

Rosa Fri 06-Jul-07 21:16:47

Lordy me no the sea is far too cold for me am lucky if I manage a paddle. I was over at Gorran this afternoon what a lovely day ..FINALLY !
My niece surfs a bit and is going on a course I think next week for a week.
Sea was more than choppy yesterday red flags all over according to friends. We went to the play gym in Truro... fun !

casbie Mon 09-Jul-07 09:56:11

went to tehidy yesterday with the kids, that was good fun looking for dragons, bears and wolves...

only found an ice-cream, climbing trees and some jammy dodgers, but kids loved it!

best weather for ages! hurray!

Rosa Tue 10-Jul-07 10:49:49

Hi all. So glad i found you, anyone mind if i butt in??
Just moved to Truro (6 wks ago). DD just turned 1, DH at work, and i know NOBODY!! Not desperate or anything, promise!! Doing lots of things with DD (Caterpillar music, storytime at library and baby gym thing) but would love to get to know other mums :-) (to talk about things other than babies/kids too, darling things though they are!).
Will keep an eye on this thread if anyone wants to chat - quick info on me (so people can run away scared if they want - ample warning!) - am 30 something!, used to work as a vet nurse and hope to go back part time at some point, love going to the gym, reading, music mad, guilty pleasures are reading Heat magazine & listening to MEATLOAF (i blame my dad!). I also use brackets too much when typing! God, this sounds like a lonely hearts ad....

casbie Wed 08-Aug-07 14:13:31

sunshine and beach in 45 mins - can you tell i'm at work and clock watching!

Rosa Thu 16-Aug-07 21:52:28

Hi all. Still in Cornwall for another few weeks and dd loving it. Trying to get to the beach as much as possible despite the weather.
Caspercat hope you make some friends I have made more here in 2 months than 12 mths abroad. Found Cornish mums to be very welcoming.Which baby gym do you go to in Truro ?

caspercat Thu 30-Aug-07 14:09:34

Sorry for the delay! I take dd to a baby gym in on old Boy's club, run by a sweet elderly couple! Don't know the name, sorry xx

Hi all, hope you are at last enjoying a bit of sunshine at last, not shy but then it's a way of meeting new mums!

I'm in St Eval near Padstow. Happy to meet new mums in the area, have a 15month old daughter. Started a new business called MIni IQ which is a great way to meet new mums and earn extra cash and share some great books games and toys with the family. It's a great money earner. Anyone fancy hearing more, then please let me know otherwise, be nice to get to know a few new people!

Hi I am back in Italy now and missing Cornwall like mad. DD is asking me for beach and Grandma so I think she is missing it as well.
Casper we might have met if the couple are Pat and John ..... Oh well must catch up on backlog of work !

Pastylover Mon 17-Sep-07 14:22:37

Hello

I am from near Falmouth and just thought I would say hi

casbie Fri 21-Sep-07 09:03:58

Rosa - why are you Italy? Do you have a job there?

I love Cornwall, but i could cope with going to Italy every so often!

Hello, everyone else!

School at the moment is trying to shoehorn Oyster Festival into it's day. making a boat out of cardboard with sail!! Just find that a bit wierd, i mean how many kids actually like oysters?

DS is already asking when christmas is! When is Aunty's birthday? When is Halloween!

You would have thought we had done nothing together all summer [sigh].

Rosa Wed 26-Sep-07 14:05:37

Am married to an Italian so live in Italy just commute back to Cornwall as much as I can with dd!
Terrible weather here today so dd and I have been creative ..she is only 18mths but we have managed to make a complete mess !

casbie Fri 28-Sep-07 09:09:31

rosa- that's very cool.

my little one (2) has just started a few sessions at a nursery and loving it. especially when she comes home with a drawing!
