We split up a couple of years ago, divorced officially last autumn. Now, for the first time DC are spending the weekend with their dad. For the very first time ever. I am pretty tired and have recently moved to a new city so don't know anyone. Still, I cannot stay indoors for the weekend without feeling miserable and missing them. What should I do? I haven't had a weekend for myself for years!

You mentioned that you have recently moved to a new city and don't really know anyone - do you have any local Meetup groups ( that you could join (my area has ones for cinema, drinks, eating out - all sorts). They are a really good way to meet new people.

Thank you so much both. Would you believe that I found a meetup group doing a great 4-hour hike today Dancer? I really enjoyed it and will definitively go again. Now at home but feeling both tired and happy smile
