Who's local to me?
« on: August 14, 2011, 07:28:34 PM »
Hi, I joined this site previously but have found myself locked in, a near to, two year court battle with my ex-husband so haven't been active on here.
I'm hoping to meet others in my area as I'm somewhat isolated here( live in Weston-Super-Mare)

Hello Karen

Sorry, nowhere near WSM, but I'll wave energetically from Twickenham

Hope your trials & tribulations are coming to an end.

Ok, thanks. Yes, so do I. Been a long two years. Should be coming to a close next month with any luck though I doubt that will be the end of the trials and tribulations with him :(

Hopefully there will be some other members in my area?

Hi Brightstar, no that's not far.
I'm 39 and work. I have three girls too aged, 14 and half. Nearly 13, 11 and a 2 year old boy.
Which part of Bristol are you?

I go to Cribbs for most of my shopping (Other than food stuff)
Would you fancy chatting/meeting up sometime? And do you drive?
I live on the edge of WsM, near the motorway junction.

Hi maddymc,
No, there doesn't seem to be many others local to us.
Have you spoken to or met up with any others locally?
I have one boy 2yrs, three girls aged 14,12,11.
Do you fancy chatting or meeting up at some point?
I don't have many friends locally even though I've lived here around 6 years.
Don't know any other single parents around here, others i know don't have ties or are married.

hi. Yeh would be good to meet up.  We have lived here for 7 years but originate from near Heathrow Airport.  We could meet up one weekend in Weston Super Mare if you like.  Not so sure my 15 year old would want to join in.  Hes at the age where he does his own  thing, but my 9 year old would be up for it I'm sure

Looks like we will have to arrange meeting up on here then as the e-mail addresses seem to be deleted.  I put mine on  my last message but it disappeared.

Hi Maddy, ok then. I don't know why that should be?
When did you fancy arranging something for? I'm thinking a weekend is going to work better?
Im easy with what we do I suppose it could be weather pending.
I don't mind coming your way or if you want come to Weston. Have you visited the new pier yet?
There is a soft play area too in Weston if your boy would like that. There is a wide range of play there for all ages up to 12 years.

Let me know anyway and we can sort something out :)

Ohhh great - a few of us.
 
I am a bit useless at the places bit it is outside of my radius of local knowledge which is very limited.
 
I am happy to drive down to say Lyme Regis area - if anyone can suggest anything there?

Hi Andrea, I used to visit Lyme Regis a few years ago when I lived near Tiverton.
I'm just over a hour away from Tiverton now- WsM.
Where are you?

Hi I dont live anywhere near you but welcome :) just to say I dont think you can put personal info such as email addresses on view for anyone.. protection thing or something.  FB may be an option? x
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!!!!

First of all, hi, Free-Spirit. I hope that thing will get easier for you!

I think there is a way that you can communicate your email address - via your profile, I think. I have chosen to hide mine, but things might have changed since this site was revamped.
What would you do if you knew today was your last day?
