My name is Billy, I'm 31 and I'm from South Wales.

Sadly I lost my lovely wife to Leukaemia only a few months ago and now I am a single parent. Its hard for me but I am strong, and so determined to bring up my 2 beautiful children in a loving environment.

I know this is a 'mums' forum, but I'd really appreciate any tips help or feedback any of you can offer me.

I hope to talk to you soon

Kind regards

Despite the fact it's called mumsnet, the strapline is still 'by parents for parents'.
And besides, you can type in whole words and sentences without resorting to textspeak, which puts you way ahead of many new posters ...

Hi Billy. Sorry to hear about your wife, that's very sad. How old are your kids?

MrsScavo Wed 11-Jul-07 20:21:18

Hello Billy and welcome, I'm very sorry to hear about your wife. It must be very tough for you. How old are your dc? (dc = dear children) How are you all coping?

Welcome Billy. Mumsnet is a great place to come and chat or get advice. So sorry to hear about your wife. That's very sad. It sounds like you have two very lucky children to have a Dad like you. Good luck.

Sorry to hear about your wife Billy.

YOu will like it here I think. You are definately welcome.

I am sure the name of this site puts men off!

Desiderata Wed 11-Jul-07 20:23:56

I'm very glad you've found us, Billy. It can get a bit feisty on here from time to time, but please don't ever feel excluded from any conversation. There are men on here too (there's even the Men's Room), but until people get to know you, it might be good to explain that you're a man. Girls can be girls, you know!

I'm in Bristol, not too far away. If you need anything, please let me know.

JetPeanut Wed 11-Jul-07 20:24:19

Yep, great minds indeed!
