Thanks, I’m OK just tired today and was feeling a little deflated earlier.
I’ve contacted a gingerbread group so see if they will get back but doesn’t seem to be any local to me.
I’m in an area I don’t know so I’m socially isolated and I’m really alkward around people I don’t know so struggling with conversations face to face.. Bit of a vicious circle..
I don’t want people to think I’m not coping. We’ve just been stuck in the house all weekend and kids with rather be on technology than come out which is pretty frustrating as I want a more active lifestyle. I don’t want to keep end up in bickers when I ask for things, like simple going to shops.
Thanks for the advice I do remove devices at times but usually I can’t bear the backfire and I guess I’m inconsistent which is probably the problem. Sometimes I do what’s best for an easier life or I’m warn out trying to juggle a million unfun things like all single parents and give in.
I had a chat in the car tonight, I’m tempted to get a dog to encourage them out more. We all used to be out lots but my daughter had an op which has left her a lot less mobile so we’ve got that in the mix too.
What I really want is to meet friendly nice parents to do things with and to understand.
