What is a #somum Mamas' Retreat on twitter or facebook?
It's a chance for mums to get together on twitter or facebook and chat while we attempt to do something creative - like doodling, taking a photo, writing poetry, making stuff or even squidging plasticine.
We give ourselves some creative me-time and connect with other lovely mums. We do it every second Wednesday of the month and we would love you to join us. New friends are always very welcome.
You don't have to be a clever crafter, an artist or wordsmith. We're all about having a go regardless of talent or experience. Most of all, it's about getting together and having fun.
If you just want to chat, that's completely fine. If you just want to make something and lurk and never tell us you're there, that's fine too. We're just happy you're making time for you.
First of all, find out if we are hosting this month's #somum community Mamas' Retreat on twitter or facebook this month, by checking our home page.
