Posted:'welsh massive' ubblol Now that would be over stating it a bit!
This would be the first meet in cardiff that we have arranged so we don't have a regular time or place. In fact we are very slack and rubbish at organisation because we are all a bit too layed back!

Posted:Well neither of them were me. Firstly I'm not male and secondly I live near Swansea and only really come into Cardiff to do a bit of retail therapy and have never been in the Cardiff union.

Was the girl a pretty red head? If she was it could have been Non.

i'd offer to take the germs, but i don't think i have a good home, i'll probably forget to feed them or not clean out their litter tray.... which reminds me, cats probably want something...

Posted:MattyB-I could possibly be the girl you met at the student union in Cardiff, depends whether you mean Cardiff uni (<---me) or UWIC? I do go the uni juggling (and anything else circus skills-y) society meetings sometimes if that's any good. Wonder if the bloke who runs it is around here? Are you the bloke who runs it?!



Um yeah, anyway-hi people (or poiple...oh dear!), I live in Cardiff too biggrin during term time anyway. If you guys sort out a date for playing with fire I will definitely be there, I really miss the group at home.

Posted:I think the plan so far is to try and meet next weekend sat 26th Feb in Cardiff. It all really depends on the weather though. If its going to be freezing cold and raining its not going to be much fun! YAY for the lovely weather in Wales! Roll on summertime!

I've been trying to find out who owns the hall around the corner from me to see if we could hire it for a day. That way we'd have somewhere inside to spin if its really freezing and wet. I just don't seem to be able to track them down though. I'm still working on it. If I do manage to get it, a few of you could crash at mine over night if you can't get home.... my house is an utter mess so be warned. I won't even do that "Oh I'm sorry about how untidy it is, I've been run off my feet and not been able to clean up" line because its always messy! biggrin ubblol Its only half renovated but it has a roof, central heating and a bathroom..... what more could you want?
