Loss of purpose once kids start school

Do others feel this? I've been a very energetic and proactive mum but have really lost my sense of purpose since my youngest started school. I miss my days with my children and struggle to accept they're now at school. This is compounded by feeling lonely at work and at the school gate. We've been talking about moving and maybe this would kick start a new phase - have others felt similarly and what has helped?

IT sounds like your issue is more loneliness. I take it you're still parenting at all other times except school and work times.
Do you have friends? Do you have hobbies?
You could use your free time to start focus ding on yourself.
