I was hoping to go along to a local get together tomorrow for the first time. The group meets once a week during school terms and has been going for a few years now. They started back last week, but I couldn't go, and I can't make next week.
This morning 3 of my children have woken up with colds, not too bad just runny noses and sneezing. So my question is, if you were part of an established group, would it bother you if a new family turned up sick the first time they came?
I'm not very good at socialising, so joining this group is a big thing for me. Having missed last week, and missing next week, I feel like I should go tomorrow to say hello before I loose my nerve to join. But I don't want to upset people the first time I'm there by taking sick children.
So any advice from those that are less socially awkward than me would be greatly appreciated.
