Hello there! I have been a memeber of BMC for a few years and thought I'd jump ship and this is my first post on Mumsnet

I am a single mum of a little boy (6). I work full time and don't know quite how i cope.

looking at the thread on holidays with interest. Just wanted to say hi!

Hello, I've got a little girl who is nearly 6, I also work full time and have just moved out of London so I can afford a third bedroom for a live in au pair as I have no idea how I managed on my own for two years!

Is BMC the Bad Mother's Club? What made you jump ship?

ahh i'd never jump ship it is my homeland but wanted to say hi and also check this place out too

i live in Swansea have a 3 bedroom house (soical housing though - like rocking horse poo so really lucky) but alas no au pair - although my mum has moved here recently and thank my lucky stars for after school club!

Love to live somewhere rural though - hate the city - although not as big as the big city!!!

thanks for posting

Hi, welcome to the boards.
I agree rural is lovely, but no child care, long expensive commute, and few friends nearby for help or support does make me wonder if we might be better in a slightly less rural place.

Its the whole support thing isn't it? I wish now I had investigated more seriously the idea of getting together with some other single mothers to support each other - but would be hell if we fell out I suppose.

yer true and thanks for the welcome I would ideally love to live on the Gower but uness I am an organic farmer or a ceramicist who had billions of money I doubt its gonna happen - ho hum! we can dream though!!! :D
can be isolating - its good living in a city when you need shopping and going out and hooking up with people for deffo.
just still have a dream about livinglike the Good Life :D
