I can meet at Markeaton at 10 or 10.30, but where will you be meeting? I’ll have DD wrapped on my back in a Storch Anna if that helps…

I was planning on going on Wednesday- but can’t get there until about 11ish (2 swimming lessons at 9;30 and 10am). Will I be lonely?

Well i’m up for both. I can’t get to Rufford till about quarter past ten ( takes about an hour once i’m back from school) but will be there. I was thinking picnic? Are there any benches we could sit at?

Thursday , shall we say 10.30 ?  How about the main carpark , the bit at the top where the path starts? Making any sense? Food wise don’t mind, picnic or just a stroll will go with the majority.

V.excited about the hens Sundog! How many did you get? who ate the egg ? Was it Luvverly tongue laugh

Hi- we are planning to be there on Wednesday- as it looks like we’ll all be turning up at different times, shall we meet at the play area when you can get there after 10.00 rather then waiting in the carpark?- (depending on traffic we should be there at 10.00 if there are any new people coming allong). If anyone realises they can’t go, could they post here BEFORE 8am Wednesday morning please so we will know who to look out for,
See you there
Gill and Tomas

Is it this Wed at Rufford? I’m losing track of time now! Meeting at the play area makes a lot more sense! We’ll probably be just after 10, maybe quarter past

Hi Everyone

We’re probably not going to make tomorrow as DS2 is still not very well with an ear infection.  I’m really sorry that I won’t see you but hopefully next month.

Take care and have a lovely day

xxxxx

Ok little update- we won’t be there on tomorrow as dh (and all his office lol) have got swine flu so assuming my feeling rotten might be the start of something more I won’t take the risk of spreading it! Hope you all have a lovely time, I’ll be thinking of you smile

Im afraid -after seeing weather report for tomorrow (heavy set in rain) I am going to wimp out. If it were showers etc…..but doesn’t seem fair on my 14 month old as he would end up stuck in buggy.

Sorry folks- although it seems we are all slowly dropping at the wayside.

What about a November meet?

Thanks to the Derby GPs for a lovely day yesterday at Markeaton. We really enjoyed ourselves - T fell asleep on my back as soon as I left and also went to bed very early last night, the girls really entertained (and fed) her well.

x Nina
PS. Lucy - is the pixie hat pattern a free pattern? Because I might be able to convince my mother in law to knit one for T…
PPS. Charlotte - I made a green smoothie today AND I am making a veg soup with quinoa as I type!!

Pics on mine too, thanks so much for the lovely day out and LOL at T being well fed, she certainly was with my little mummy around!  wink

Would love to do it again!  Also second getting the hat pattern, though I suspect if all our tinies turned up somewhere in co-ordinating pixie hats we might look even more of an odd crowd LOL.

Hi Ladies. We had such a lovely time on Thursday last week. I have never seen DS play so well with other children and that meant a lot. His little outdoor loving self was so completely at home with fellow tree-climbing, puddle-splashing, leaf-kicking, duck-feeding, picnic-scoffing, fungi-poking, den-seeking peeps. Sarah - tell Martin that he even asks for ‘faster, faster’ on the roundabout now (tho not as faster as _that_ yet!). We must definitely do it again. Markeaton is a perfect venue too.

So glad you liked the ‘hattie’ as DS has named it. People either seem to love or hate it (I profered the suggestion of making some for a friend’s little ones for Christmas today and was not quite ready for the polite decline in response!!!). The pattern is all thanks to Gill (Emilysmum). Here is the link to the thread:

http://www.thegreenparent.co.uk/forums/viewthread/7805/

Happy knitting, and I think it would be hilarious if all the little ones sported co-ordinating pixie hats!

Oh, Charlotte, LOVE the blog by the way!
