Hi Helen, Barton Carolyn etc
have been looking at the trains. Can do Saturday 8th October, but not 15th. 22nd is another posdibility, but will have to check with P.
Barton, there are three stations apparently, am on the wrong page now, but one is by the shopping centre, is that the onr? if i came by train, I could get there by 9.37, I think itsvia Reading too Helen, but I guess youd prefer to drive?
Although I could get to Bristol it is too far for me to get there and back in a day so I won't be able to join in. Also I wouldn't be able to get there at a weekend as I spend time with the family then, weekdays are when I could meet up.
Could do Guildford but would choose not to go as far as Oxford and, as I go up to London for my heart checkups it gets a bit expensive getting to London - unless it fitted in with one of those appointments.
Will keep an eye on this thread for any suggestions that I can make and that for around treatments/blood tests and all the other distractions!
Hi you all, I currently live in London, Bristol is going to be a bit far for me, but we can arrange another one either in London, Brighton or Oxford, I can do only weekdays, as during the week I am working. No driving, but trains are OK.
Wow that tread is getting really exciting. Good one Helen:)
Helen, I can do any of those dates! This is getting quite exciting! I would also suggest meeting upstairs in John Lewis, outside the cafe? There is a big landing with escalators (and lifts), and, more importantly, toilets! Plus the large carpark just outside the main door.
Great Barton, im sure I could get to Bristol, by train or car, cant do next weekend and as Carolyn cant do the last weekend, would be happy to meet up in October,
Helen, would one weekend in October suit you? Cant do 5th November as its a training day, but could do 6th. Saturdays are normally probably better for me but would consider a Sunday.
i think Helen you thought it would be good to do a few of these meet ups didnt you?
. My partner and I might be travelling down to Devon next week ( for a few days 28//29/30 )....at any rate he has the days off!
Maybe it would be better to plan for one of the middle October weekends? To give people time to plan ? Just a thought
Hello Moijan, sorry, couldn't make the trip to London at the moment - just too stressful at the moment because it would have to be by train (there is no way I would ever drive to, let alone in, London!) - which for possibly 3 or 4 of us would cost a lot as well. Likewise with somewhere like Oxford or Reading. But Bristol is OK to get to and from in one day.
As for dates, I can do almost any weekend day if given some notice - don't have anything booked up for a while.
Carolyn has said she can't do the last weekend in either September or October, but I think is free other weekends. Haven't been in touch with either Ellie or bonariensis yet.
as we discussed a few weeks back, it would be great to meet up.....my first invite/suggestion was for. Brighton, but I think Barton said she couldnt make that..... It might be that people would find London easier if its central South, but im not sure exactly if thats what you meant? Also it depends wether people are driving or not...I guess parking could be a problem in London, Guildford, or other would also be a possibility, maybe Nicky could make Guidford..?
perhaps it would be helpful for us all to know what days are definitely out, re chemo and appts etc..
once we know a convenient Day of the week then we could perhaps plan where and any practicalities.
i have chemo on Thursdays and one Wed out of three, I see the onc.
Tuesdays or Fridays, are good for me, but Helen has chemo on Fridays, I think. But both Helen and I and any other Eribulin ladies will have a week off where days might be freer.
SHOULD WE TRY FOR A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY.? That would possibly suit ladies who work.
Oh have just spotted Bartons suggestion for BRISTOL sorry Barton....could possibly make that on a weekend. Perhaps we could have several dates? But make them all public on here so that people can slot in if they want to.
what do you think?
Helen, that would be great! As for dates, I can do most weekends if given some notice. Would a Saturday or Sunday be best for you. Will pm Carolyn52, EJ81 and bonariensis.
I have seen before that you are in Reading, not a million miles away from me in Basingstoke! We have had a Hants/Winchester group going for some years although sadly have lost many of our lovely ladies. It started in Winchester as a central point but we are now quite spread out - me in the North of Hampshire, others as far down as the I o W! You are welcome to join in with us any time and I could also fit in with any other location that this thread throws out - as long as it fits in with treatments etc. We are meeting up this coming Weds in Gunwharf Quay in Portsmouth if anyone wants to join us? 2.30 in the cafe at the bottom of the Spinnaker Tower - you can't miss it! As a word of caution though, after the years of us trying to meet up we often have had to cancel at the last minute so it's worth making sure everyone checks the forum before they leave for any meetup and/or shares mobile numbers (by PM of course).
Moijan and Avrelia
Sounds like we could organise something Mid southerly together... Where are you roughly Avrelia? If it's just us 3 then let's make it central to us... Anyone I've missed sorry please jump in
Karent and spudgirl
perhaps you could arrange a meet up as think you are both more Midlands /north?. Sorry if I've got this wrong!
Bristol cribs causeway
Hi Barton... that sounds like a good idea. I can do Bristol and if others can come too that would be great. :-))
just got to find a date.. Weekend days are fine for me. I'll come back with some dates or you can throw some up? HelenXxx
Spudgirl, what on earth are you doing up at 4.28 in the morning??? Just noticed the time you posted!
Helen, lovely idea, but couldn't make any of those places, I'm afraid. Instead, would you, and others perhaps, be able to do Cribbs Causeway, near Bristol? I could drive myself, Carolyn52, EJ81 and bonariensis - if they wanted to go, of course! It would probably have to be a weekend, though. Just throwing that idea out there!
I'd love to meet some up with some of the members on here so am going to try and arrange something...
We should try and gauge location and timing.. So here's my starter for 10.. And because I'm Reading based I'm going to try and organise one less than 2 hrs from me as gotta start somewhere.
But perhaps if someone is keen more Midlands or north, they could jump in and set one up too??
I'd suggest we meet for pub/cafe lunch in a town - needs to be easy for trains and car parking
If you are keen, which could you get to..?
- reading (haha suits me!)
i can do any of those so pop
Chemo could be a prob as some of us have to be hooked up some days and also some work...
Can you say if weekday or weekend possible?
