Can't win sometimes can you?Doris><> Brenda A 1 year, 3 months ago Hi Friday afternoon suits me.for a get together. visit my old gent in Worlingham on Tuesday afternoons. Philip C 1 year, 3 months ago Friday could be O.k. for a meeting with Doris..Brenda and Alison..but we need an accurate location a definite time and Friday.A coffe'tea meeting would give us a chance to see if this could be a regular meet.Phil Copland FAIR MAID OF KENT 1 year, 3 months ago I will provide the location with coffee/tea at my home, at present this would be about 3.30. and the first Friday would be the 11th.This coming week isn't possible.I hope this meets with everyone's approval?Phil has my address andafter the weekend I'll send it to Alison and Brenda privately together with my telephone number. -you may get the answerphone but that;'s O.K.

If so, then I can come along too :) Philip C 1 year, 3 months ago Surely Alison , Doris would not mind if you met your daughter from school ,and brought her along?After all this is only an intial meeting and should not last too long. I was a former Primary teacher and I know you would feel happier about this .SincerelyPhil C Alison L 1 year, 3 months ago If I really am stuck then maybe ,if that is ok with everyone. My son is 16 and (mostly) trustworthy though so will ask him first.Alison FAIR MAID OF KENT 1 year, 3 months ago Hello Alison,Philip just pipped me at the post:I have only just seen your first message.I was about to say that children are always welcome here.does she play recorder?Bring it along!when we moved here 15 years ago was talking to a Mother with two small children wearing Barnby Primary School Sweatshirts.i asked whether they collected tesco Computer Vouchers.That lead to my spending Friday afternoons for 1/2 and hour with Linda Ashford and her young recorder players.she took the youngest, I accompanied the more advanced:-0We played in the school Christmas play and had a great time.Then - I think it was a certain Mr.Brown stepped in and free Friday afternoons for the children came to an end:.I've also been a PlayGroup Supervisor in my time.and a registered childminder if that helps?Doris! FAIR MAID OF KENT 1 year, 3 months ago I have just sent a message to 'Nina'This site keeps adding things to my messages that I have not written.I have no idea where 'Doris K' came from at the end of my last message.Maybe it might be best to share our email addresses and use them to each contact each other privately with copies to each other.I'm not sure I shall stay on Streetlife, I don't want my private details for everyone to see.That was not expected.Fine for discovering people with similar interests but as follow ups individual emails to people in the usual way would be my preference.Would Alison let me have her email address please?Doris FAIR MAID OF KENT 1 year, 3 months ago Send me a private email Alison & I'll give you my email address.Doris. Matthew G 1 year, 3 months ago Which private details do you think are visible? If you share your email address with other members then you're giving away private information which you wouldn't have to share if you communicated via streetlife! FAIR MAID OF KENT 1 year, 3 months ago Thank you Matthew-all sorted.Happy New Year! Philip C 1 year, 3 months ago Am humbly suggesting that we now keep messages simple leaving the talking to the 11th Jan...and let us have a fairly short initial meeting[most have busy lives]..and see what the possibilities for this group are...??maybe Alison's daughter would much prefer to start piano lessons which would extend her musical future far more than recorder and would help her to find our meeting interesting?Very humblyPhilip Copland FAIR MAID OF KENT 1 year, 3 months ago Yes I agree Phil.Since we are all now connected by email addresses perhaps we don't need to continue using streetlife for this this subject.Properly 'private' messages in fact!Doris Philip C 1 year, 3 months ago DorisIf we keep on this site for this topic it becomes very leggy and the meeting will be for an exchange of information anyway....It is most kind of you to [a]initiate the meeting[b]provide the tea and coffee for the meetingRe Alison's daughter[and of course it is for Alison and her daughter to decide]10 years of age is an excellent time to start'piano'...if the interest and determination are present.SincerelyPhil CP.s.This is an unusual site..one of a number initiated locally ...and does give people chance to talk about unusual topics [but topics ''in common'' ]and is much to be praisedI find Facebook very hard to ACCESS and DEAL WITH...so a local site makes ahuge change. Brenda A 1 year, 3 months ago Just remember, if it was not for this site we would not be talking to each other.Who knows we may become good friends Brenda A 1 year, 3 months ago sorry I cant make today, very much under the weather , perhaps next time. Philip C 1 year, 3 months ago Hi BrendaSnap!This has happened to me too.Am also under the weatherBest Wishes on an early recoveryPhilip C Comments are closed. Why not start a new conversation?
