so how many people would be up for meeting on Saturday 5th Feb at.. 3pm? In the cafe downstairs in Waterstones on Sauchiehall St. It would be great if we could get quite a few people together, share thoughts and plans!

I think you will spot each other a mile off. Lets think about our common traits....

Stubby right index from pressing refresh on our email inbox
Badly bitten nails and bloodshot eyes
Look of hope when a Royal Mail van/postman passes by
faraway look at the thought that we will be outta here soon!!!

I'm not sure if I'll be there....depends on success of kilt hiring for my son!

I would like to join in too. I have a pair of Canadian Olympic mittens so I will wave my hands in the air if I see the Canadian hat. By the way which end of Succhiehall St is Waterson's at .. the Buchannan Galleries end or the Charing Cross end?

Hi everyone,

I am from Glasgow too, Tollcross to be exact. We have been in NS for 3 years now and I wish I had some people to meet up with when we were moving. It's a great idea.

Good luck everyone and if you need any advise from this end let me know I will help if I can.

Julie
