Hiya.
I'm a stay at home dad and we have recently moved to the area because of my wife's job. We have a 2 year old daughter. I'm just looking to try and meet other stay at home parents as I don't know anyone here and starting to go a bit crazy with just a 2 year old for company the whole time. I understand if you don't want to meet as I'm a man and I'm sorry for intruding if this group is only for women. Would be nice to maybe just get coffee. If you're interested please just send me a message. I can share useful parenting tips too. Thanks.

Hi. Oddly enough, just about to move to Chippenham. My ds is at school but I work from home.

Oh wow haha that's a coincidence. Welcome to the area. I've been here a few months. Haven't really met anyone in the area yet so just need to socialise a bit and get out of the house sometimes. What's your name? Are you married or a single parent?

Married. Not moved as yet - just put an offer in on a place and waiting to sell ours so probably won't make the move for a few months.

I don't know Chippenham yet but there are generally lots of baby groups attached to churches and the like. Have you tried any of those? Alternatively, I used to hang out at soft-play and insert myself into other people's conversations. grin It may have been a bit stalker-ish but I made some good friends that way.

Oooh ok well good luck with the move! Ours was luckily not too stressful. We moved because of dw job.

Aw thanks. Haha maybe I will give that a try.I unfortunately have just started to realise that my marriage is actually in quite a bit of trouble. I don't know how I didn't really realise until posting on here.this is a really good site though. I just thought getting out for a bit would be the first step.

I'm sorry to hear that. What's the problem? Is it salvageable?
