Any thoughts?
Not Clatty Pats then??

Hi,

Reading linsypinsy's comment about 'Clatty Pats' made me laugh.
Used to go there years ago when had my first flat in the west end.

Personally I prefered the 'Savoy' in town or 'Durty Dees' in Shawlands.

The Savoy on Sauchiehall Street?? I work near there; one of my co-workers likes to reminisce about "Grab-a-Granny" nights he's had there...

lol there is not space to list the reasons I want to leave Glasgow! Well Ok that's not true, but I tend not to like getting into that because I usually end up ranting and I'm trying to view all this for positive rather than negative reasons!

How many people would like to have a wee meet up? I couldn't do Sunday 6th but could probably manage Sat 5th? Or the weekend after?

If its not the 5th I cant make it till the end of Feb (am a nurse and work most weekends)

Do you all want to meet centrally or would somewhere like The Fort be easier?

I couldn't possibly comment...

I can do either 5th or 6th but would find city centre easiest.

Thinking of places, Princes Square is nice but busy, we could meet in the basement of waterstones in Sauchiehall Street. big comfy sofas and large coffees!

Am looking forward to it and preparing a list of things to ask everyone

Hi all!

I'm currently packing up the flat in Glasgow West End in preparation for Toronto in 5 weeks!

Hubbie leaves in 9 days, his new employers were adamant that he comes NOW!!!!

I'm up for the 5th in Glasgow, I'll be very lonely and sad as he will be gone. We landed in December 10 with the plan to move out late 2011, but darn hubby went and got himself a job on the spot, so that was that
