I am 35 year old mum to three girls the youngest of which is eight.moved to croydon 18 months ago and then have recently unemployed after suffering a brain haemorrhage in September . I have no friends the area and the road I live on is like a frigging ghost town. I am so desperate to meet some other mums nearby to socialise with or just share a cup of tea . I feel on the verge of tears nearly everyday and just don't know what to do.Help!

MuminPurley - do you have any official details of this so that we can put it on our What's On page. Sounds really good - might pop along myself!
