    Hi all superhero single parent peers,

    I’m start loosing myself and my mental health is impacted big times during this 3rd lockdown. I survived the first one somehow , wasn’t easy , but made it through. I was lucky to been able to work through the 2nd one in November while schools were still open. But this time , I didn’t get a place as a vulnerable family in the school for my daughter, my childminder is still shut , I don’t have any family member in the UK. So I’m struggling and can’t coop anymore.
    I can’t work while I’m home schooling and can’t even go for a walk on my own. Feel like I can’t even breath and loosing myself completely. I’m studying as well, doing a diploma in counselling. But can’t focus on my studies either as I’m 24/7 occupied with my daughter. Both of ours mental health is impacted and my finances as well, due to stop working as a self employed. I’m looking for other single parents in lewisham/ hither green / Catford/ ladywell area (SE13) whom are in the same shoes, and Wouod like to have some free time, create a support bubble and help each other with occasional baby sitting. My daughter is 8yeats old, well behaved, healthy, happy child . Gets on well with everyone really. I have a background in fine art and teaching . So I can offer extra art lessons, creative activities , teaching children  painting and crafts. I have been a private art tutor for a long time, but changed carrier and started to study again.
    let me know if you would like to do the same!
    Looking forward to hear from you
