Hi All. I'm new to Mumsnet, an older-ish mum and will be moving to Gloucs (nr Stroud) in Feb/Mar 05. Complete change of scene - won't know anyone at all!! I have a 2 yr-old ds and a dh. Would love to hear from you, especially anyone undergoing Moving Nightmares from Hell. Thanks.

Hi, we (my hubby and i) moved to glos 4yrs ago, without knowing any one, so i know whats its like.
we are once again on the move, only this time we have a 2yr old (our son) helping us, and we are only going 15min down the road.
i would be happy to chat to you, show you around and meet up with you.
let me know what you think.

Hi All - thanks for replies and for offering to show me around etc nnosam. It still looks like we won't be in the area until end of Feb at earliest, but would love to meet up when we're settled in. What I'd really appreciate now is any advice/recommendations for what to do with ds - playgroups/music groups/toddler gym groups etc that are good? I'm a sahm so am really going to need outside "activities"! Thanks
