Friends - Is making mummy friends worse than dating?

Since becoming a Mum, there’s one thing that has really bothered me. Making Mummy friends… Why does it feel like you’ve been plunged back into the dating scene?

Once upon a time, I would go out, meet new people and it felt reasonably easy and enjoyable. You’d have a chat, a drink, a laugh! BUT… being a Mum and meeting other Mums, it’s none of those things. I would go as far as to say it’s even harder than actually dating!

6 years and going strong!

Today is my 6th wedding anniversary and I couldn’t be happier! I married my best friend, a cliché I know, but he really has been by my side through thick and thin! When we got married, we didn’t have a care in the world. I didn’t suffer from my health problems and everything was super easy. We’ve rarely fought over the past 7 years we’ve been together and here’s some of the things that’s helped us along the way:
