    Hey, guy split with my sons day when he was 13 months old now he’s 7 years old. So much to deal with with all that and done child maintenance though remo. And that only just got to court. Life was looking good moved to Wales with new partner kids got tobknow each other. (He was childhood friend) one of my best mates brother she was happy about it. And 2 weeks ago he walk out. Feeling like I wish I wants such a soft hated person. Feel broken that it all went wrong sported him though everything too. (Screaming at my self he wasn’t ready) but now in in newport not knowing anyone and lonely have my boy always  his dad doesn’t have anything to do with him apart from a video call one a week. Hoping after covid il be able to meet people and find thing to do. All so much to think about when I don’t no anything or anyone in the area.

    Hi,

    if your neighbors are friendly and sociable type, maybe you can have chats with them and get to know them.

    One is chatty when I see them on the off chance other is not at all. Nod if you say hi only kind of people.

    When I can do more thing (covid) I’m sure il meet people by getting my son into sports/club.

    If bubble extend then I’m sure I could meet the one friend I have 20min drive mind so will have to see what rules will be.

    I would recommend going out for fresh air, walk in the park on regular basis. it’s good that you have your child with you. will take time for you to adjust to new area.

    Short answer yes but there is nothing there for us its small town. I also have a good job here (when aloud to go back) lease  And although family there didnt have much help with little one. No this is short term thing till I can try meet friends just over Wellming in lock down. As can’t even meet one friend I have there for walk as have to drive (15 t0 20 mins) and its not aloud as before people would drive to hot spots to meet and spread happend more coz of that. I understand it but its the effect on the ones doing write and dont have people close
