    Hi Ruth

     

    I feel your pain. We arrived November. I am not working either and have a 3.5 year old at home with me but unfortunately I am in Hallett Cove!!!!!!! Have been doing a lot of 'shopping' the last week or so since kids gone back to school. That can't continue as a) we dont actually need anything, and b) we dont have any money!!!!

     

    I am so used to friends popping round after school drop off etc. Or coming round for a catch up and a bite of lunch. Missing them heaps....

    Hi Ruth

     

    It probably feels like that but I am sure there are other new arrivals in your neck of the woods. Did you get out to the park meet up the other week arranged by sally h? Perhaps we should organise another one somewhere central so no one has to travel too far. I am mobile; how about you?

     

    Once your little girl has been at Kindy a little while longer you'll start talking to other people there I am sure. Its a godsend having the little ones I reckon as at least I am up and out in the morning and not sitting facebooking in my pyjamas (which would be so easy to do at the moment). I have heard about a few playgroups so will go along to those in the next few weeks and hopefully get some buddies for my little man.

     

    Night out sounds fab.

    Hi I am not new been here 7 years now but pop back on here every now and then and always up for meeting new people. I am often available on Tuesdays and could meet you at Mawson Lakes which would be about half way. Not very sure of the whereabouts of playgrounds there but we could meet for a coffee and take it from there if you fancied. PM me if you want to meet and I will ring back and see what we can arrange.

    Hi Ruth,

    I am a bit older than you, but a bit closer than some of the others!

    It's hard when you first arrive, and honestly, even now i feeel a bit like "where is everyone"?

    always ready to lend a shoulder, have a drinky or 3 ..........even just to shop with, at weekends, cos i work full time.

     

    The OH has his golf buddies, so i can be around some weekends too.

     

    Keep your chin up!!

    Hey Ruth

     

    I am in Greenwith so very close (5 mins to the Village) I'm originally from wolverhampton I've been here 3 an a 1/2 years now but still not met that many people - I've got a little girl who is ten months so old so I would be more than happy to meet in the day for a coffee or a walk. We could maybe meet at the Village in the food court bit there ..... I do go back to work in March part time so my little one is in child care one day a week (to get her and me used to her being there 3 days in March - gulp) be lovely to hear back from you - and to hear how your getting on.

    All the best

    Wendy
