1 Meet up on thursday 4th March for Lunch! on 26th February 2010, 3:37 pm

Is anyone free thursday 4th March for a mini lunch meet up?

Lizzie is going to be in the centre that day from about 10am but has to leave at 3 - 3.30pm.

Sooo we are planning to have a meet up and lunch about 1 ish! So does anyone else want to join us?

We are going to find somewhere cheap to eat like a pub lunch and it would be good to see some more faces!

let me know your thoughts cheers

Hi Clare, would love to catch up but unfortunately the boys are have their 1st Italian dentist visit on Thursday straight after school so I need to be there for moral support!

I'll be in Rome for a morning meeting on Tuesday 9th March if you're around then?

Ciao
Peta

Lunch sounds like fun, but I'm heading out of town Thursday morning. I'd be up for it another time though, if you get together again.

where do u suggest we meet claire? I can meet any time from 10am. thought we could do a bit of window shopping or mild touristy things. can u suggest a place convenient for u, close to the metro ...and a time? if anyone else wants to turn up then they at least know the appointment....

good idea...I menitoned it to Zoe...on another thread...so it's getting a bit confusing now, i think it is the thread on who's who. let's hope she replies and then we can settle the spot. i think termini would probably be good for her!

just out of curiosity what is he being paranoid about? I know termini is a shady place... i think once u have kids u can get a bit worried about ever putting yourself at risk as u have to be there for your child. I feel like that all the time..... Smile

He's actually worried that the nice English girls i'm meeting are evil zingari aliens out to rape me and steal my baby....
and when he says no, no amount of stamping my feet will get him to change his mind!!
I need to prove you are not evil computer poison monsters..... Mad

indeed -once he's met you he'll probably be nice as pie, but until then he's being a classic italian possessive monster - and once he reads this he'll start having another moan - ahh well italians and English, at times two very different species!!! Rolling Eyes

when I told a friend I had invited claire and alex for dinner she said, 'no u mustn't they might be axe murderers!'...she's italian too!

ok we all need to be sensible, but at some point u have to take a small risk, otherwise u limit your chances of making English speaking friends.
Now I defo do not want to rape anyone, (haven't got the energy) and I have enough kids of my own thank you very much!!!

If u r on facebook why not join our friends list and then your boyfriend can see all our photos etc and might feel a bit happier?

Another time that Claire and Alex come over for dinner then if u and said BF can make the journey too u might like to come..he can be your bodyguard!!! Razz

what exactly does he think we are gonna do in the middle of termini surrounded by hundreds of people??? i am 5 ft 1 and am in no position to threaten anyone.

anyway that said, do hope we get to meet at some point. I am sure your bf will be cool once he has sussed us out. better to be overprotective than under. my bf still gives me advice about crossing the road...bless!!!
