I'd love to do something between 10/1 and 14/1 :-)


ok so 10/1-14/1, is weekend better for most people? or week days?
Week days are better, I'm going on holiday with my folks on Saturday or Sunday. Or Saturday morning would be good too.

Hi! Are you new or do I just not remember the username?

If you're new, welcome! If I've just forgotten you, I'm sorry :/

13 Jan? Food Monkey?
Do they have air con? I'm not sure they do.

Oooof good point.

Ummmm well I never go out anywhere central anymore, so my suggestions may not be very convenient, but Dejaxo in Mount Hawthorn is brilliant and pram friendly (and cheap, depending on what you order). I will keep thinking.

Does it need to be next to public transport? Kettle Cafe in Lathlain was nice when I went there... 12 + months ago, is fairly central and I recall it seemed to have lots of seating, plus a park across the road?

Work keeps getting in the way of my social life

I feel like we had this problem last summer trying to find somewhere with aircon, and I cant remember what we did?

I think sage cafe in Vic park has aircon.

I am back in Perth! Probs be here until late February at least before moving to Melbourne. Keen to catch up sometime!

Also if anyone is still interested in coming to my area in Perth Hills - and I know it's more difficult these days with babies galore so totally fine if it's too hard - as a bonus incentive we not only have a farmers market but also a bulk goods store here now apparently, I have yet to visit the latter though.

Yay!!

Your local bulk store is meant to be fantastic ;-)

If we need to find an air conditioned, baby friendly venue, I'm happy to volunteer to host, with the usual caveat that it would only be for people I've met before because I'm funny about giving out my address to complete strangers. Also it would have to be pot luck because pot luck is just better.

At this stage I'm thinking the earlier the better, just in case boyfriend gets interstate work again and we have to leave in a hurry! So maybe 10th or 11th Feb?

Hi Everyone,

I've been reading the early retirement blogs for about a year or two now ( new to the forum though), but didn't think there's enough of us in perth for a meetup.
Would love to share stories etc sometime.

Welcome to what we often tell ourselves is one of the most reliable and awesome and possibly longer continuously running Meetup groups on the forum :D we would love to meet you! What kind of event would suit you? A picnic, cafe or after work in the city? (Note: we find cafes etc to be cheap places to rent a space to safely meet nice internet people ;) )

All of the above sound great, but, a cafe is universally accepted place to go to for meeting people for the first time.
I'm good with after work ( I work in the CBD) that said loud places with alcohol are definitely not for me, can limit options.

I just figured I'd tag along to the next public meetup :)

@HappierAtHome and others, organise a Meetup for that weekend?
