Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
I don’t have many mummy friends. I have basically none nearby and I hate baby groups as I quite often find them a little judgey. Today I stepped out of my comfort zone and posted the following on a lovely local online mummy group that I’m in.
“Ok, here goes. Going against my social anxiety now! *deep breath*
HI! I’m Laura and I have a 7 1/2 month old girlie called Eden who is DESPERATE to make some new friends! Mummy has social anxiety but Eden is a social butterfly!
Does anyone want to have a little baby/mummy(or daddy!) meet up at soft play at ********** tomorrow early afternoon? It’s free for under 1’s and it’d be lovely for Eden to have some buddies to shout at and for me to make some mummy friends too.
*goes back off to my corner*
(Pic for cuteness!)”
So far we have two new friends to meet tomorrow and a few who want to meet on other days. Wish us luck!

I know exactly how you feel ! I have to force myself to take my youngest to baby groups and she’s a social butterfly too! I was thinking about doing something similar – good luck for your meet ups 🙂 Gorgeous photo 🙂
Yay! Well done. I have pretty bad sociak anxiety so know how difficult that must have been. Good on you. Hope it goes well x
What a fantastic photo! And good job on moving beyond social anxiety. I do not do well in big groups, or gathering where we can’t all participate freely in a conversation, so I applaud you stepping outside the box.
May you make many new friends!
Good for you for putting yourself out there! I hope it was a fun playdate.
Well done! Have you tried Mush? It’s an app a bit like tindr/grindr but for mums (although without the sex obviously)!
I have not! Might have a look. Thankyou x
