I have moved into the grange rath area and am keen to meet up with people during the day, in the local area, i have a boy aged 2 years, i run my own baby imprint business and work from home . Whilst i grew up in the area i have been away for a while and most school friends are either no longer around or not having babies yet!!! Plus ..the town has changed sooo much its a bit wierd to get used to as the town i knew was via McPhails and McHughs not Astrotots!!!
Anyhow, it would be nice to hear from anyone in my shoes and perhaps you can let me know the ‘in place to be!’. I have tried some of the playgroups………….
or indeed if anyone is interested in meeting up in astrotots or simliar

Hi Jelly belly,
I have been to the one on thursdays in donacarney on and off too. I know what you mean, the building is a bit on the old side but there are a few nice mums there that i have met, but i just don’t get to go that often like yourself, my little lady (13months) usually naps around11am.
I’m a blow in from the west (moved to bettystown 3 years ago) but if you want to get together sometime for a coffee and a chat just give me a shout always happy to meet mums in the same boat 🙂 🙂January 25, 2008 at 10:20 pm #53719
yeah know what ya mean about the one on thurs, i went to that one first with ds got very crowed and also a bit grotty mums were always nice but like you went on and off and found if you didn’t go every week ya kinda were left to the side……so started going to one on palace street, love that small group i’d like to think we’re welcoming group, the girls are lovely, i end up running around with the kids and ya see all the kids sit down for toast juice and the like so it’s busy with that then we have tea and coffee and toast ourselves, you should try make it, it’s on a tues 10-12 and only 2 euro, the only downside is the steps down to it, but there’s always someone there to help…..
i’m a dub originally living here 4 years and love every min of it wouldn’t move back in a heart beat……living in mornington, so if ya ever fancy a meet up pm me, also sweetpea you’re only down the road, pm if ever bored and fancy a cuppa……
going to astrotots on wed hopefully for a change on wed, that too is a good morning, now that ds is that little bit bigger and a little more adventerous should be ok…….
but get out great to meet other mums around the area……a few of us arranged to go to thepics for a night out i was sick didn’t get to go, but moonflower, taylor, joey rudd , meabh and mumof2 went to see ps i love you, there’s always something to do even if it’s let the kids go wild or go to the pics whatever…..enjoyJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:24 pm #53721
god joey your bab is 3 months already….my god, she’s so cute…..will you be there on tues you were missed last weekJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:28 pm #53722
yeah i should be there next week, wasn’t feeling well this week
yeah T is 3 months on the 7th of feb just easier to say instead of how many weeks she is (she can roll onto her belly now 😯 )January 25, 2008 at 10:35 pm #53723Taylor5Member

Jellybelly love your name, I have a 2 year old boy and I attend the Tuesday group on Palace street, its brilliant and the kids love it.
Im a blow in but living her nearly 8 years and wouldnt go back to Dublin even if I was given a free house.
I did go to the Thursday group, all the girls are lovely but I just stopped going as I started going to the Tuesday one…. could go to everything.
Joey I dont think so, I dont want to commit until later, but dont think so at this stage.January 25, 2008 at 11:12 pm #53731gemmalMember
