Just following on the suggestion from Peanuts thread.  My DS has also started prep so I'm finding myself at a bit of a loss with all this extra time on my hands.  Is anyone interested in meeting up, either for coffee or to go on a photographic meet?

Sounds great, maybe a cafe so we can all have a cuppa and a chat first up?

I have sent you a pm Wendy!  Jupiter, it would be lovely to meet you too!  original.gif

Cafe sounds great Teri, it will be lovely to meet you all.  I'm flexible with time so happy to go along with what works best for everyone else.  Are there any particular days that would suit best?  Jupiter would somewhere in/close to the city work for you?

Any where is good for me. The day would be the determining factor for me coming down. Whilst I could possibly do most days, I would need to make sure I could get a sitter for DD.

If you can't get a sitter then just bring her along Jupiter (unless you want some Mummy time of course)!  original.gif

Mummy time would be good lol. Since moving and having to give up work for a while, Mummy time has been a a little thin on the ground.

If her Nanna or Aunty is working on the day I will bring her along. She is 3 but can be a handful at times lol.

Girls, do you have a day that suits best?  I am flexible so can easily fit in.  There is a coffee shop attached to the Woolloongabba Antique Centre that looks good otherwise Teri has also suggested Bulimba area.  Any thoughts?

Woolloongabba Antique Centre sounds good to me.

No preference on days.

Earlier in the week would be my preference but I'm flexible if that doesn't suit everyone else!

Probably a good idea to pm the agreed-on day and times.

I'd love to be involved too - but the end of the week or Wednesdays after lunch generally work better for me right now - In a few months I'll have more flexibility in availability so it could be easier to meet you original.gif

Would a private facebook group be a good way to co-ordinate this / regular meet ups?

#13 winkwink

Posted 21 February 2013 - 02:21 PM

Good idea Teri but I can't figure out how to PM multiple users - I'm hopeless LOL.

mrslb - after lunch would be tough for me, I would need to do 10:30-11am meet so I have enough time to get back for school pickup.
