Can you remember when you took your babies to a local playgroup? Maybe you are doing it now. Maybe you did it 5 years ago, or maybe 10,20. This group of mothers took their babies to playgroup over 30 years ago but they still have get togethers.

Twice a year the playgroup mums of Springwood in the 70's, still have a dinner together twice a year, where everyone gets up to date with what their grown up babies are doing now.
We swap photos of our grown children and in some cases the grandchildren. Then we have a lovely dinner with lots of laughs and fun.
Before leaving we choose the next person /s to organise a dinner in 6 months time. It is fun to keep in contact with old friends. Many mums have moved to other suburbs and towns but they make the effort to attend twice a year. Each time we try a different restaurant, which is fun. The souffle was good here.


  1. What a fun time! That's so cool that it has lasted this long. Keep it up!

  2. I still see the playgroup people at school......I do catch up with my Mothers Group (CAFHS previously Mothers and Babies!) this post has reminded me to organise a night out before everyone gets all booked up!

    I am grateful I came here today on a full tummy - that souffle looks devine!

  3. Good company, good memories and good food, what more could you ask for?

    Diane, I want to eat out as much as you!



  4. Oh how fun! That is so cool, you all get together twice a year. That souffle looks so good too! makes me hungry.

  5. Wow, I can't imagin my play group lasting that long..but who knows, us moms have to stick together!

  6. That is SO nice! It sounds like Springwood was the place to be in the 70's. What a blessing!:)

  7. what an absolutely fantastic idea! I'm sure there are some good stories swapped at those get togethers.
