I am British but live on the Gold Coast and feel quite lonely despite being a very sociable person. How can I meet more Mums?

play groups are great, mothers groups can be helpful too (depending on how old are your kids).
Look up your local muncipality/council website for any info regarding
library reading times for kids (usually good for toddlers)
playgroups in the area
pram walking groups
maternal and child health nurse (they ususally can also put you on to playgroups, mothers groups, and other type of groups around children where you can meet others).
See if there are any play centres (indoor playgrounds that serve food and coffee and good to hang out with other mums) around where you live.
Local parenting magazine (Brisbane Child or similar?) and they list a lot of different venues where you can do activities with your child ( kinder music, ballet, singing, art, etc) where you can meet other mums. Another popular activity is Gymbaroo, again kids have fun and you get to meet some mums :-)

Good luck :-)

Are there any single local lonely mums in the Brisbane , Ipswich area that have kids that have left home and would like some company?

I am 47 and would love to have someone to chat to.

I am a very active person and work out a lot and love it, but I miss having female company for chats.

I am also in Australia. If you call a kinda, they can usually direct you to a playgroup where other mothers with young children go. These mothers can also direct you to mothers groups, who have girls nights out and such. I am currently trying to do the same thing. Good luck

I'm from Canada. Here we have daily Mom groups that you can drop in on. Some are at the local libraries, Elementary schools and Health Centers. I'v ebeen by a few and they're a great way to have some adult conversation while you're little one plays, or for babies,sleep. Look into it.
