I'm hoping to get to the Birmingham one providing I'm not too broke!

Ang, I've only been to Birmingham once and that was to go to the Motor Show so I didn't actually see the city itself. Most of my knowledge of Birmingham is courtesy of Jasper Carrott!

Gwen and I had a great time at the meeting last evening. We met again Melanie, Andrew and Andy, and met for the first time Mr & Mrs Skint, Ian Millington and size5.

It is a huge step for a new Forum Member to take by coming to one of these meetings. The Forum with its anonymity is comforting, but coming to a meeting is not like being “outed”. You can attend under your Forum name, no-one will put any pressure on you to disclose your real name. Gwen and I had a great chat with Mr & Mrs Skint, and did not know their first names until we read them on here, and we still do not know their surnames. We don’t need to, we were just four people discussing the challenges faced when trying to cope with a very limited budget in a family situation, especially the impact on the children. We also discussed how our attitudes to money and budgeting had changed our behaviour since those times.

A great evening. Thanks Andy for organising it.

Sounds like you all had a great time, I will definitely join in when one is local to me and drag Mr along although he is the shy one of the two!

"little green men!"

Is that something to do with the leeks they eat in Wales Melanie? [:D]

Really missed being there folks, hopefully will be in Birmingham or anywhere in the more southern regions!

Melanie is being very kind. I was the driver seeing little green men amongst the dark and rain. Melanie was the slightly apprehensive passenger working hard to keep me focussed on the road!

A good evening, a pleasure to meet some industry/forum colleagues, and brilliant to meet Mr & Mrs Skint.
