I'm hoping to arrange a local meet up for anyone interested - maybe in the middle or the end of May in the Blackburn area. Please let me know if you think you might be able to make it. Need to think about the venue yet so please feel free to make any suggestions. Thanks!

Sorry everyone, havnt been posting anything for a while; been distracted by one thing and another, family; holidays, social calendar, etc.I enjoyed the meeting in Bolton,the meal was great,just a little awkward at first, not knowing person, you know what I mean.

Maybe, if anyone is still interested in a local Blackburn meeting, however small, we could arrange something......but I will only be free from

wieekbeginning 21st of July for just a week as I will have the grandchildren.

Hi liminetta nice to see you on here again smile I'm afraid I can't make it next week & I think it's likely that over the summer might be difficult for others too. Shall we say Tuesday September the 10th & hopefully a few other local gransnetters will be able to join us on that date too. cupcake

liminetta Wed 17-Jul-13 22:37:04

Hello GransMT; Thank you for smiley.....Ime sorry I cant make it 10th September, as I will be cruising round the Greek Islands for a fortnight, from the 2nd September.Me and hubby always wait to take our main holiday when the grandchildren have gone back to school.Hope to try to meet after we come back.My apologies to you.

GransMT Fri 19-Jul-13 22:17:18

How lovely liminetta - I enjoyed a cruise a few years back - we went from Southampton on med cruise on Independence of the Seas - really enjoyed it! Dates I could make are Friday 20th, Monday 23rd or Tuesday 24 Sep - would you be able to make any of those? Also anyone else still interested in local meetup who could join us please join in?

liminetta Tue 23-Jul-13 06:59:00

Yes, GransMT; I love the cruises....This kind of holiday suits us both..the ship you went on is huge! Ive seen it round the med.Looks awesome (as my grandaughter would say).I can probably make any of those dates you give in September.Maybe we ould get otheres to meet up.Anybody out there???

GransMT Wed 18-Sep-13 12:47:08

Meet up on hold again I'm afraid - hopefully will sort something out in a few months time...

liminetta Wed 25-Sep-13 00:25:44

Hi everyone.Sorry, Ive been away and busy with family etc., can we meet up, say, next week, or the week after? Maybe in Blakeys, for cofee or s
omething. Next thursday would be good.Anyone out there? I can be there at 12.15 on Thursday, 4th October, is that right? If no-one turns up I will have my coffee and cake, and go home!

liminetta Wed 25-Sep-13 15:16:45

Here I am again.... apologies; made a mistake- on the date.Its Thursday 3rd October, not the 4th, sorry.Hope to see someone there.I will keep a lookout for ladies (or lady) searching about.[smiley]

liminetta Wed 25-Sep-13 15:17:16

GransMT Thu 26-Sep-13 12:39:03

Hi liminetta - hope you had a fab holiday! I'll be in Bacup then and won't have time to get to Blakeys for 12.15 but enjoy your coffee and cake & possible company cupcake

liminetta Tue 01-Oct-13 18:33:10

Hi, GransMT;
Sorry you cant make it. But I will be there on Thursday.....After morning line dancing I will be ready for some refreshment.cupcake

liminetta Fri 04-Oct-13 16:17:01

Hi, anyone out there? Well, I went to Blakeys and had my lunch, which was delicious.Fortunately, I wasnt alone, as my two friends joined me.While we were waiting to be served, I went around asking women if they were with Gransnet.None of them were, as it turned out, but it was a good P.R., excercise, as they all asked me what that was about , so I explained about the website, and they said they were interested, and would look it

GransMT Fri 04-Oct-13 21:57:49

Hi liminetta I'm here as always! smile Glad you had a lovely lunch with your friends. I was having a very busy day at work and ended up working through lunch time! sad When more people are joining us on the forums it might be a good time to try to arrange another meet up. Maybe your friends can come along - also maybe some of the ladies you spoke to about Gransnet. I always have to work on Wednesdays & Thursdays though. Here is a bouquet just for you! flowers

liminetta Tue 08-Oct-13 17:19:36

Thanks, GransMT; I had lasagne and it was delicious. Ime quoting my daughter who says, its okay for some who have nothing better to do than spend their days in constant free time; unfortunately, some have to work!
Well, my working days are definately over, but I do feel for you,slaving away.
The friends who joined me for lunch dont have computers, unfortunately.(I think they are afraid of them), sadly. They dont know what theyre missing.
Anyway, here,s hoping this local site will get more attention from the ladies out

GransMT Wed 09-Oct-13 21:26:54

Hi liminetta - yes agree that those offline are missing out - you might be able to persuade your friends to get online... check out UK Online Centres thread - places in Blackburn offering courses - many free! smile
