I'd like to join you all if I may? I've been absent from EB for a little while, simply distracted by other things, although now I'm back I can't remember what those other things were!
I'm sorry I've missed a few catch ups, I'm definitely in for others if possible, although October is turning out to be quite busy unfortunately. It's Mother's Group birthday season so we with the 4 kids, plus the son of another friend, we have 5 weekends of 3rd birthdays! Plus my mum and Grandma are coming to stay for DS1s birthday, then an old school friend is coming to stay for a week! Honestly, it never rains but it pours in my life, lol! November and December will be dead quiet and I'll wonder where everyone is
I'm also in the East Bentleigh area (there are rather a lot of us!) and love it! I work Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays but am free all other days of the week and am open to evening or weekend kid-free catch ups too
I'm mid-30s with 2 boys, 3.5yrs and 1.5yrs.
firsttimemummy18, we go to GESAC every Saturday morning but for the boys swimming lessons rather than anything to do with my own fitness, lol! I love the centre though and could see myself working out one day when the finances stretch that far.

Xena left EB?!
What? When? I can't believe it! I'll miss her too! Gosh, I hardly recognise anyone and I don't think I was gone that long! Although, I think there have been some name changes along the way too, just to trip me up, lol!
Back on the topic of a meet up, I love the botanic gardens - anywhere the kids can run and run and run (although hopefully only in circles around our picnic blankets) is good for me.
For an enclosed park though, there's a great playground which I recently learnt of in Armadale, on Union Street. It's off Glenferrie Road a couple blocks up from the train station. There are two enclosed playgrounds, two cafes (one lovely but small, one large and perfect for lunch), plus some grassed areas to sit. It was popular from 11am onwards (I went there on a Wednesday morning) though, so may be better for an earlier catch up.
