mehitabel says hello

Postby mehitabel » 16 Mar 2005, 17:29

thought I should introduce myself here - though have already dived in to discussions on Scotmid.
so hello - fairly new to Porty - almost a year actually but been so busy working and with getting 2 teenagers settled in socially - this is me just getting round to dipping my own toe in the community pond.

Hello

Have known about this place for some time and have nosied around a fair bit. I enjoyed learning about John Williamson the Fishmonger and have chatted to him since reading online.

I'm a married mum who's lived in Porty for four years and I love the place.

Hope to come in now and again (if i get the chance!!) and get to know some of you.

best

-Chris :D

Welcome to the forum, Franck :wave:

Yes, that was my initial reason for getting involved with the forum - the amount of local info you find out about what's going on in and around Porty.

Keep posting :D

Hello! I've just discovered this place after seeing the banner on the front of Portobello Town Hall as I was coming home today. I grew up nearby Portobello, but I've recently moved to Porty High Street and am absolutely loving it. I've never been so happy, this is a special place! It's great that so many people care about making Porty as great as it can be. And there are some great places to get scones!

Hey, you can tell the quality of a community by the quality of its scones! Kitchener's (not sure if that's spelled right, I'm always too busy eyeing up the cakes to notice the signage) win on the perfect crustiness and taste, the Blue Bean for size and Sunday opening! (I wonder if I'll find a box of Greggs freebies on my doorstep tomorrow so that I'll big them up next?) This forum is great! I'm so nosey, I have to know everything!!! So I'm ploughing my way through the posts. A thread about Scotmid! I couldn't be happier!

We should probably have a forum where user can post topics about themselves so that other uses can get to know everyone better! They could be locked topics or left open for comments etc? :?

You can write as much as you like about yourself in your profile, or indeed make a post in the forum. No guarantee anyone will read it!
