Hi, I am a lonely stay at home mum for now (aged 41 but young at heart) of an 19 week old baby boy (first child) and I am looking to meet other mums in the local area for 'playdates', caffeine fixes and two way conversations! Back to work end March but likely will be home and LO starting Nursery in February so I would love for him to gets some social interaction with children of a similar age beforehand. Happy to meet at locations / coffee shops in MK, or to arrange / attend coffee mornings. I don't drive so am finding it difficult to go to anything more than Buggy Bootcamp and local area and to keep up with old friends. I am a bit shy at introducing myself, but once someone talks to me I'm okay. I have tried hanging around after baby clinic at the local centre but the Mummy's there seem to have their own little click and felt awkward about introducing myself or imposing on their conversation. Any suggestions of any nice (free) groups I could join please would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hiya, sorry for delay, I did not get a notification of your message, don;t know why.
Tell me more about yourself and then we can arrange to meet?

Hi Update,
Lil man is now 6 months old.
I have only met one Mummy so far, after lengthy conversations and facebooking. Then she didn't meet up again with no explanation, even though she said she would.
This may seem blunt, but my friends like me for who I am and my honesty, so here goes.
Very odd about said person, as don't know why someone would do that, when you seemed to have got on well and to not have the courtesy to be honest is just plain rude?
Please note I am looking to meet genuine people and if for any reason you don't have time or don't want to make the effort please have the courtesy to tell me rather than waste my time.
It is quite upsetting to just block someone and make them worry about what they may have done to offend.
Sorry to moan on here, but this was my first experience of trying to meet new people on here and has left me feeling upset.
I hope there are some nicer people out there that appreciate my friendship and would like to get in touch. (If I haven't scared you off with my honesty,lol )
