Hi All, a coffee shop sounds good.  It’s funny that Gb mentioned hiring a room?! Don’t think we need any more organisational demands!! I went to a Gb group meeting in a café before when I lived in London, was fine. If with kids somewhere that’s kid-friendly…

 

Would it be nice to meet up with our kids first of all? (Much as I am craving grown-up time!!) To get a picture of who we all are, and then after by ourselves?  I don’t mind either way, just a suggestion.  Also, obvs there will be question of organising babysitters if we’re meeting w/o kids.  Personally, I have yet to find a babysitter.  I just have a friend who is helping out but she doesn’t want paying so there’s a limit to how many times I can ask her (she already babysits for another weekly commitment I have.)  But I WILL find one because I sooooo badly need some me-time socialising..anyone else???!! 🤣🤣🤣

 

Plus, I have no car at the moment and am based in Street.  I work bet 11-2 every day.  So if we are up for meeting in Street of a weekday morning (some Xmas shopping anyone?!  Costa is there right by the King Arthur playground..) I am there no prob!! I can do Sat or Suns to other locations as long on the bus route!! (And Sunday times will apply…) but after that it does get a little trickier.. I am open to suggestions though!
