Ah poor you two, no viewers must be awful, we're off to sort out an EA at the weekend as we are nearly ready for it to go up now, we'll see how things go. The local papers are saying that things are on the up and there are more houses being sold now so here's hoping, i did notice that one around the corner from me has just had a sold sign put on it so there is hope. mind you having said that i have said to my OH that we'd have a h3ll of a lot to do if it sold in like a couple of weeks

Good luck and fingers crossed for you both

Just wish we could all get a few more viewers, put it back to a sellers market, now wouldn't that be good???

Thanks Vickys

I am really nervous now. Im excited to meet other families in the same position but I am a shy person.
I,ve read the other posts and it seems there are others who feel the same so at least I wont be on my own in feeling that way.
We have never been to a meet before and was wondering what happens?

Hiya, really pleased your coming. I've never been to a meet before but I suspect it's more of a social thing - so nothing to worry about. See you in a few weeks then.

I've never been either and neither have many others, i know myself, Caroline and Mary have definately never been before and that we are all feeling the same or we were, Caroline doesn't seem as nervous these days but i am. I've come to the conclusion that i'm sending in my daughter first so she can break the ice with people and then me and my OH will follow on behind. I like to help her in her assertiveness and confidence you know??!!!! (Well that's what i'm sticking too anyway and it does sound good in my opininon

Don't worry about it at all though i also get the impression its more of a social thing and i've heard so many positives from others it can't be that bad. We'll all understand each other too being form the same sort of area's and in the same boat too

Hi Vicky, I'm not nervous as I'm bringing my secret weapon ...... my dad! He wants (with my mum if we can persuade her) to live out there with us and has been reading a lot of posts on BE. My dad (Frank) is VERY chatty and VERY confident and often embarrassing as he asks so many questions in his search for knowledge!!! But, he is great fun and thinks he still a teenager!!

Caroline

Well that's it sorted then we'll all just wait for your dad in the car park. I'm still nervous but i'm sure it'll be ok, i always get apprehensive going somewhere for the first time. Knowing me i'll miss the junction despite going shopping at the reebok regularly
