Scotland, Easter Hols

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.

Scotland, Easter Hols

Postby busmother » 11 Mar 2014, 13:32

Anyone up for a meet in the Easter holidays? We're not going anywhere so would be nice to have a jaunt somewhere for the day. Perhaps we could finally make Stirling? Or even the commune, if there aren't too many of us? Or back to Perth? Anywhere really (within reason). I was thinking the week of 14th April.

Bumping this a bit just in case no-one saw it, rather than that you're all off doing really exciting things at Easter or can't thinnk of anything worse than meeting up with me and my brood. And if it's just Edinburgh people around, Edinburgh's fine too - just seemed like it might be a good opportunity for a jaunt somewhere exciting.

Can only really make Friday afternoons (although playgroup is off in the holidays so all of Friday would be fine! Thursdays we swim and it only breaks for Christmas so could make Edinburgh or Glasgow but no further afield.

If others can only make other days I'm not too bothered to miss out as we can see each other on the river when the weather's better!

Hello!
I did miss this. thanks for the bump.

Yes, yes, count us in. Wherever, whenever. i can't think of any plans we have during the holidays, its all jsut sorting things at home and me working when I can. But pick a day and we're in.

As for where? I'll mull it over. it would be good to finally do a stirling one but can't think of where would be good, my knowledge of Stirling is actually fairly crap. Or anywhere else...

the problem with Stirling is that the only really suitable place within reasonable walking distance from the train station for kids is the Castle and its likely to be overrun in the holidays (not to mention ££ if you don't have membership). There is plenty of stuff to do here, but cars would be required.

I am generally free, but it will depend on the day as to who is with me. If it were Glasgow/Edinburgh, it'd need to be walkable from the main train station as I have to take the double buggy as Theo is refusing to walk anywhere these days :(

Is it easier just to do Edinburgh then? Don't think there's anyone in Glasgow at the moment, and not sure I feel brave enough to drive to Stirling. We had a nice time just in Princes St Gardens last time, or there's always the museum. Or there must be other places if I think about it. But very happy to venture out to you if you think that would work.

I'm happy for Edinburgh, makes life easy! My 2 love the museum but agree that the gardens would be great if the weather's good.

Edinburgh is fine. Museum or gardens.

I was thinking about driving in, now that I'm not longer such a scaredy cat, and its the hols so the car is free. But not sure I'm ready to drive there myself yet. Maybe still a little scaredy ;)
I could drive to the train station though which would give me more flexibility wrt when we come home...thats what I'll do.

Really sorry I never got this together! Suddenly loads of calls on my computer time in the last two weeks of nursery, and then manic birthday week with grandparents and kitchen stuff and suddenly the holiday's nearly over. I have a babysitting commitment tomorrow and a birthday party on Friday, which leaves Monday and then we're back to school again (well, nursery). DH may have the day off on Monday (unheard of - he never takes public holidays, but he's been away with work all this week) so that's probably out too. Oh well, anyone want to fix a date sometime soon, and we'll just bunk off nursery?
