Hello fellow mummies and daddies,
My name is Samantha (Sam) and it has been what feels like FOREVER since I posted in a parenting forum, so please forgive me for not being up-to-date with any 'lingo'.
Ok this post is already sounding like I am an 80 year old grandmother when really that is not the case.
I am 28 and have two children 6 and 9, I live in SE Melbourne and was a regular parenting forum poster when i had my first child. parenting forums got me through some really hard times, which i think is why i have turned to them again in some way.
I am a mum who works full-time and have a 2 hour commute (in total) to work each day.
I have worked full time since my eldest was in prep (heading into grade 4 in 2016) and I have completely missed out on making mummy friends through the usual ways - PFA, School assembly, school pick up's and drop off's etc.
I did have a close group of mummy friends before working full time however this has also decreased due to my busy lifestyle of working, oh did i mention studying?? and raising a family.
I have come on here to hopefully make some friends, friends who are close by and happy to catch up and do things out of school hours and weekends.
Anyone out there want to be my friend??? (gosh i sound desperate!).
