    It’s only a number. If anyone is ancient it’s probably me so I will be 53 this year and my daughter is going to be 4 years old. I live in London  and work part time in the West end. The nursery where I take my daughter think I’m 38 as all my clothes come from oasis and warehouse.

    Hi all,  Just reading your  posts.  Although I had my last child at 37.  In the last year I have become mum to my grand-daughter who will be 3 in July.

    I became a single parent to my children when they were 4 and just over 1.   I would love to attend a group but live in yorkshire.

    Just wanted to say age is just a number.  Everyone as different experiences, don`t be put off.   Even if you smile and say interesting point to the younger ones, who may have no real life skills.  Not all though!

    I’m 41 and my daughter is 6. Most mums at school are in their mid to late 20’s so very little in common no matter how much I try, my work we’re bouncing all over the place when I was in my late 20’s so I get blank stares lol. I’m in West Yorkshire

    Hi everyone, so good to hear your responses.

    We’re all scattered round the country. I am in East London. When i posted, i was hoping to find a group. But there doesn’t seem to be one that is specifically for older parents. Not that age actually matters, unless you being to feel old, (like i have been haha)

    Not sure how we can form one of our own, considering our locations.

    I am open to ideas?

    A “remote” group say via whatsapp is an easy fix/suggestion but no good if people would like some face to face occasionally. However some maybe reluctant to share numbers etc, especially if people are then added to it and there could be the potential of their ex being added etc.

    Establishing individual more local groups is obviously an option but given I’ve yet to see anyone post within Ann hours travel to me it’s unlikely to work for many.

    Just some food for thought…..

    Ann Hours Travel is a tourist outfit run by a lovely little old lady. Unfortunately no one knows where the office is based.
