I'm new to mumsnet and have been reading some of the threads.

God, some of them get well heated don't they!!
Am 38 and live in Barnsley. I have 2 kids ds is 6 and dd is 11 months.
My dh works overseas for 8-10 weeks at a time so get a bit (lot) fed up at times. I can't remember the last time i got pissed or the last time i left the house without a child in tow. Anyone similar?
Any tips or hellos from anyone would be well received.

mumtoo3, my DD went through the same at reception so we took her out and home ed too. We have several children and no intention of any of them ever going back into any sort of school, unless they decide to wink
BB- yes the threads do get heated grin it's part of the fun of open discussions.

Hello Barnsleybelle! Just noticed your name on active convos so thought I would pop in to say hello even though I don't home ed (have to say that after the year we have had with DS I have been very tempted though!!)

Anyway, I'm not far from Barnsley (Flockton, in between Wakefield and Huddersfield)and have 2 DSes who are 5 and almost three. I'm around all the time at the moment as I'm a teacher so on holiday so if you fancy meeting up, CAT me. grin
