Ooh, good question Chubbles. I'm thinking hat/s. I'll wear my fedora (looks like this: http://www.amazon.co..../dp/B004UM7YUS), and get there early. Unless someone can think of another idea?

Also, for anyone who doesn't know where it is (like me!), it's 41a Wray Crescent, Mt Evelyn. Apparently it's opposite the library.

Put me and my 2 munchkins down too please wink.gif

I will be the one looking around nervously with a "god I hope they don't think I'm a weirdo" look on my face lol

You would know if you've seen me at the IGA, I have dreads and generally wear tie dye clothes

When is the get together? I'll see if I can work up enough courage to make an appearance with DD (6) as my +1.

So sorry I didn't make it, guys. I feel awful. I did get there, just too late! I was caught at home waiting for a delivery. Hope you all had fun.

I wimped out. I think I did see the EB gals but I can't be sure. I didn't see anyone with a hat on and I couldn't quite bring myself to walk up and go "Hi! Are you the EB group?" How silly am I? So DD and I sat  at a little table for a couple of minutes and then decided to crack on with Christmas preparations.

ForsakenTruth, do you have short, brightly-coloured hair? We were the group sitting nearest the play area. I had been wearing a hat but took it off after a few minutes. We are hoping to catch up again in January, and we'd love to have you there next time.

CancerianMoon sorry we missed you! As above, hopefully we'll see you next time.

Bubbalee, Chubbles, BlueDragon it was lovely to meet you and your gorgeous LOs! Shall we set a date for January? The last January is the public holiday, so I was thinking maybe the 21st instead? Or we could do a (kid-free) evening get-together.

Count me in (hopefully).

No, just short blonde hair with a tall much more memorable 6yo. The faces I remember was one young lady who looked a bit like one of the Veronicas. Another lady with long curly auburn hair. I think there were 2 or 3 more at the table but I didn't want to appear like I'm sussing the group out (even though I'm sussing the group out Tounge1.gif )

I would love to do the January one but we're off to Fiji the week of the 20th so if there is a change of date please let me know. Otherwise I will stalk this thread and catch you all with the next one that's organised.

Well clearly you didn't see me or I would have been referred to as "the amazingly hot mumma"  xmas_tongue.gif

Just kidding, I'm the one with the dreads that are in need or serious attention and therefor make me look like an escaped mental patient and glasses original.gif

So, who's up for another meet-up??  biggrin.gif

How is Monday 4th Feb for everyone? Mondays seemed to work well for most people.

Hi everyone, haven't checked the thread recently with all the christmas rush. Had a lovely time with you all, would love to do it again.

Were we going to set up a regular thing like the last Monday of the month? Or the first if the feb date mentioned above suits people?

We are packing to move house at the moment, I need activities to look forward too! How hard is it to pack up a house with a crazy active toddler!?!?

4th of Feb works great for me original.gif

I wont be at the next one on the 4th. Its DD1's first day of school and DD2's first day kinder. Very exciting!!!

Unfortunately Monday mornings are probably out for me this year because of kinder. I could probably do lunch or after if this suits anyone else in the future?

#42 bubbalee

Posted 04 January 2013 - 11:48 AM

Pretty much any morning is good for me. Harley starts school on the 30th Jan and Indigo will be at kinder/childcare Tuesdays and Thursdays but doesn't matter if I have Indi with me or I'm child-free wink.gif

#43 Cancerian Moon

Posted 04 January 2013 - 12:05 PM

I can't do 4th Feb either - first day of kinder and I need to be there.

#44 justthegirls

Posted 05 January 2013 - 09:09 AM

Mondays and Wednesdays work best for me, as their DD2's long kinder days.  The other three days are scattered hours all over the place so I can't commit to a set time each week.

DD2's kinder starts back on the 30th like the school does for big kids.

Normally Monday's are great for me but I have had to make an appointment for the 4th, hopefully I'll make it next time.
