Single Dad Just saying Hello :)
« on: July 08, 2012, 11:24:57 PM »
Just thought I would introduce my self. I'm 25 year old from liverpool and have a 4 year old son. I have my son friday to sunday and when ever i get time off work because i work away (Army). I really came on here to see where people go and stuff as a single parent. I took my lad to centreparcs at the beginning of the year and as good as it was not talking to adult for a full week was a bit mind numbing haha (only so much you can talk in depth convos with a 4 year old about peppa pig) Well anyways I can chat on here or if you want to add me on facebook its tomo phillips (just inbox me letting me know your from on here so i dont think your randomer :) )

Thanks for reading

Thomas :)

Hi Thomas, I was once drawn in and for some reason thought center parcs was a good idea,  like you, I was very wrong!!

I'm a single dad in West wales with four children.

Hi!
You should definitely try Center Parcs again but next time go with SWK!  We've been for a weekend and  5 night trip with them and had great chalet mates each time - always someone to talk to - if you want to!

Hi Thomas and welcome to swk......Ann from north Liverpool :-)

Know exactly what you mean about need ing an adult to talk to while away.  you have come to the right place, you'll never look back once you've been on an swk trip.

Get yourself booked and look out for any local day meets on the forum...hoping to organise a BBQ at Crosby marina in August, which I have also just mentioned to another new merseyside dad.

Hope to meet you soon

Ann

I am interested in going to it.

Ann's coordinating the Lake District camp this weekend so won't be around for a few days but I suspect the barbecue will be arranged a little closer to the date and no doubt posted on here for all. There are a lot of folk in that area, it just gets a bit difficult during summer to find a weekend where everyone's around.
