Central Scotland in May!

Some of us get together from time to time in order to talk about the latest issue of Heat magazine, global politics, important developments in lipstick manufacture and, er, Baby-Led Weaning.

Lovely to meet you all today ladies, a really good turn out! And great venue busmother.

Sorry I had to dash off. You'll be pleased to know I didn't get a parking ticket (YAY) and JT thoroughly hated his swimming lesson (BOO). I think he was a little over tired!!

Yes, it was great to meet you all! Hope everyone got home safely.

C has been playing 'twins' with her soft toys since we got home, think the buses made an impression!

It was lovely to meet you all. Sorry we ran off early, and without saying goodbye to everyone. I knew if I didn't take advantage of the sleepiness immediately, we would be in for a nasty afternoon.

Lovely day was had by us, It was lovely to meet/see you all again :)

My day had a happy ending - My purse was at Lost and Found at the station! Wasn't expecting that at all. Stupidly I didn't check until AFTER Kat kindly bought me a new ticket home... and apparently I chose a strange type of ticket that couldn't be refunded. Bureaucracy gone mad! If I'd had more energy I would've questioned it more but I didn't have any fight in me. Oh and I'll get the money back that was in my purse - but they'll send it by cheque in a week or two... :? um... ok.
Kafka anyone? ;)

I'm so glad you got your purse back disco! My faith in the museum-goers of Edinburgh has been restored. Not too sure about the station's policy on dealing with cash in lost purses though, that does sound a bit suspect...

Yeah, they said it was to protect them in case I said "oh actually I had a hundred quid in there." So they bank the cash right away. I don't really see how that changes much, technically someone could still nick money before it was banked but ho hum. I'm not going to complain!

Glad to hear it turned out well disco! I've lost my purse a couple of times and always got it back eventually.

Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye to everyone - it was lovely to see you all in the flesh!

Our day didn't end so well - a large sum of money was spent on shoes and A had a massive robot dinosaur related tantrum :scream

He then fell asleep in the buggy on the bus and we couldn't wake him up so he's gone to bed without his tea! Another very tired boy...

Just to add to the 'great day, tired children' theme. But they still didn't sleep on the way home so I've had a blissfully instant early bedtime tonight. Which I think I need.
Lovely to meet / see you all, though I should point out the museum was Kat's idea. And it was a good one.

It was a good (if busy) day. I was the one who was exhausted, I must say. I had to come home and nap before starting work! I remember why I don't take my children out!

It was worth it all to meet/see you all. I do love that museum and one day will (maybe) get to see some of it and not just chase children about *looks wistfully into the distance*

I know what you mean, Kat. The first time I went after the refurb (having never quite got round to going before), I thought I would come lots, wear them out and they they'd have a nap in the buggy while I improved my mind. This did actually happen once in the Science Museum in London. I discovered the Mathematical Models section which I'd never ever been to before. Surprisingly beautiful and fascinating. But no, napping in museums is clearly never going to happen again.
