    Hello Everyone

    A mini-meet has been mooted, in the metropolis. Might be an amenable moment, or maybe a matey meet, with no morose mention of mortifying unfortunately-not-moribund MATs.

    Half-term has been hailed - 'twould be a hearty hiatus in the midst of a hectic horrorshow.

    What pray, say you sires/mesdames?

    Sounds like a plan. Any ideas for a venue?

    I'm game, if I'm around. Could it be somewhere informal where you eat or not as the fancy took you and you could circulate at will, like in the brum meets?

    Unfortunately, I can't come on Monday or Tuesday as am in Greece on a school trip (back on Tuesday afternoon ); kinda have to go as I'm in charge of it. ;)

    Wednesday, Thursday and Friday suit me better :) or I'm off all the next week, too.....(but my driving test (!) is on Friday, 2nd November....!

    Ooh, I could come! Near king's cross is good for me, saves me trekking too far from Marylebone. I would like to meet up again, wasn't too scary last time...

    I like the Kings Cross place as well. :)

    That would be lovely. I can find my way to Kings Cross.

    OK, the venue looks pretty much sorted.

    The date is problematic, e.g. Tuesday 23rd vs Wednesday 24th or Thursday 25th. (Friday isn't so good for travelling.)

    I see no alternative but a gladitorial fight to the death between monicabilongame and sabrinakat.

    But no, what time would you be able to get to Kings Cross on the Tuesday @sabrinakat? Perhaps we could start at e.g. 2pm. I think O'Neill's do food all day. We stayed there quite a while last time, and I ended up ordering a second meal later on.

    Late afternoon on Tuesday and I have to go back to Kent, then go back into London; so not really feasible for me.

    W, Thurs or Friday suits me better, sorry. Must dash - poorly cat has vet appt shorty. :(

    Tuesday does suit me better as I can get babysitters on a Tuesday but not as easily on Thursday. Sorry Sabrinacat:oops:

    I'll add my vote for Tuesday 23rd as it's easier for me to get a day off on Tuesdays (and as a non-teacher, I now have to wait in line for time off during school holidays as all the parents get preference - a situation I know many have put up with for years!).
