Thought of you all meeting up yesterday and didn't you have great weather? The flag helped then Carl? We also are looking forward to the meet up on 28th. It will be fun to be around people that understand what we are going through.
We will make sure that we bring a camera, you just can't get the staff these days can yer?

Will be booked into the Travelodge from Friday 27th so any time Saturday is good with us!

Just depends what sort of distances people are travelling on the day!

Thought I'd got the wrong meet up when you mentioned "fags"!!

Hi All,

Just started reading this thread this eve.... maybe interested in your meet up soon could you give me a few more details on where, when etc.. ?

I have 2 boys aged 10 & 7 that may have to be dragged along.

We're looking to go to Nova Scotia, having been there twice and Newfoundland once,,, just had Meds last Thursday at clinic in London recommended by MK Murrays.

Thanks

Michelle

Meds were good,,, think worse bit is actually the thought of all this stuff !

Came down with throat & aching last Monday and still not too good,, probably the worry,,, goodness knows what I'll be like when we finally get there !!

Never got round to mailing you to say Thanks for the lists,,, bet you are counting the days until you leave these shores,,, did I read somewhere you are off on 29th ?

Michelle, Hi & Welcome.

Have a look on page 5 message 62 & 64 of this thread but meet up looks like it's going to be changed to 12 noon.

Hope to see you there.

Hi Mumof2,
glad you can make it.
We are meeting in the car park for the Major Oak. It's free parking, large play area, cafe, few pubs in local area.The Major Oak is just North of Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire. If you put a search in on multimap for Edwinstowe and you will see the parking marked on the map. It's in the Sherwood forest.

We the Gibbos are caravaning in a site about 2 miles up the road from the Tree and the Hotel is a little further along. If you contact stevd61 he has more details about the hotel, also other people staying in travel log and another B&B, so if you are look for a place to stay, just ask. I will send you a PM with link for the campsite tomorrow. Along with more details on the venue.

We are taking our two kids, Emily 9, and James 7, and I think there will be a few more kids, so they should keep them selves happy



mkmurrays,
Did make me laugh and had to show Trace. I have had a few tins now, so I am being extra careful

Nova boy,
you never know who gunna turn up


This is looking like it's going to be a brill meet-up, loads going
speak soon,
Carl

Ah mkmurrays,
real pitty you are not going to be there for the 28th meet-up, you have been a great help and just wanted to meet and say thanks in person.

We will have to try and meet up when we go over for holiday/research trip, end July, begin Aug?

Cheers Sharon,
Carl

Smile Re: Canada meet up in UK

hello all
got an email from the site this week and have only just looked at it, there was a link to your calendar date

we're in the early stages of planning our emigration. I (Kristi) was born in toronto and am just sending off for my canadian passport, then i hope to sponsor my partner (Karl) on a family class visa.

we're just down the road from nottingham in northamptonshire and i think we'll be coming on the 28th (need to wait til i can get hold of karl, he's had to go to edinbugh today for work)

i've been reading loads of posts and articles on this and other emigration sites & forums and am getting a bit over-whelmed with all the info available, it would be great to meet and speak with others planning this big life-changing event to get ideas, info and advice!

hope to see you in a couple of weeks

Hi thundercat600,
most welcome to come along and say hello. This will be the first meet up for most of us, we had a small on saturday, and we found it very interesting and helpful, and made some new friends in the process.

Will PM you later and hope to see you there.
regards,
Carl

Hi,, certainly would like to attend this meet up however, youngest child has to go to communion stuff 10-12 so cannot leave MK until 12.

According to satnav,, takes about 2 hours to get to meet up but both OH and I are looking at leaving straight after,,, will you all still be around about 2'ish ?
We may book in to the Travelodge as suggested by Novaboy.
