Hi. I have arrived in Florida and have just got broadband not so great, but that's ok...I'm here!!!!

Just a question for American folk....where can I meet some friends as I know nobody here and feel a little lost!!!

How would I find mums groups or stuff????? I've been looking on notice boards and things, but can't see any advertised.

Pinkroses, post a new message to Sunchowder or KateandtheGirls so they will spot you (they are in Florida too).

Weather not so great??? You should try Lancashire in Feb!

i'm the other way 'round ! (american in the UK)

you might want to have a look on - you might be able to find some help on locating other local moms etc.

good luck..

ps: if you dont mind me asking, what brought you to the states?

Lucky you!

I spent a month in Atlanta with the children recently while DH worked and was shameless about accosting people at library storytimes and the children's section in bookshops. I made a couple of really nice aquaintances that way.

It was hard though as there didn't seem to be the toddler groups, music groups, NCT groups like here. The women I met said they found it hard to meet other mothers which I found sad. It seemed that most women had returned to work and their kids were in daycare.

I posted my details on a couple of websites and had a couple of people contact me. Nothing came from these but it might if I'd been around for longer. was one another was atlanta mommas (maybe do a search on where you are with mommas or moms in the title).
