Hi, I would really like to get to know other try-to-be-green (not always successful but try very hard), stay at home mums whose children and family come first in their lives who live in Nottinghamshire. I can’t be the only one…...xxx
Hi to both of you We’re in Lincolnshire and can travel too! Whereabouts are you both? We’re in Sleaford and often go to Newark if that helps. Nice to hear of some (fairly) locally as I too often feel like I’m the only one round here, clearly not as there’s you both! Feeling much better lol
I know what you mean about feeling like the only one in your local area! I’ve been to local baby and toddler groups but get totally fed up with the competitive parenting and the “when are you going back to work” speak. “My family is my work and a total pleasure” is usually my answer and then they look at me fairly oddly like I’ve sprouted wings or something!
I also can’t seem to find other mums in the area who are interested in things like cloth nappies, baby carrying etc.
I often go to Newark - I’m from Mansfield way so it makes a nice trip out and I love the town anyway with the river etc.
Wow! I’ve been lurking (I’m sure that word has negative connotations) on the GP forum for a few months and have looked to see if there were any Nottinghamshire Mums but didn’t see any then I saw this post and decided I just had to join the forum and come out of lurkdom - I’m in Nottinghamshire and would love to get to know some like-minded local Mums.
Anyway, I’m Naomi and I have 2 children, Tristan (27 months) and Eloise (8 months).
HC - I am about 15 mins from you heading towards Lincoln, I’m in Nocton, we are always in Sleaford as Katie has her dance lessons at Go Dance twice a week .. lol
if you fancy a play at the park, let me know.
it would be lovely to have a regular get together, I know we are spread out but maybe once a month, at different locations to make it easier for people to get to.
what do you all think ?
we go every year ( rain or shine ) and love it .. we dance alittle, play alot, laugh, always bring a picnic but end up eating the lovely food available there too.
its not too big and very family friendly
so, who’s up for it ?? we’d have to really be organised to meet up with each other, or I can bring a big flag and put it up next to us.
Wow! I never thought I would get a reply!!!! It’s so nice to know I’m not odd!!!! LOL
A get together would be fantastic. I’m not able to make next Sunday, but since it is half term next week, wondered if any of you were at a loose end and would like to meet up somewhere. How far from each of you is somewhere like Rufford Country Park (just thinking of somewhere equidistant from Derby and Lincolnshire….other suggestions would be great though. Can’t do Friday but free Tues, Wed and Thurs
ooh how exciting ! Think could prob make next Sunday sounds fab! Would have to come on my own with the kids as OH is on a stag do in Ireland,(alright for some!) Not sure if he’s taking the car sure can get a bus or the train or something anyhoo.
What a good idea mama4 , hope you can make it squirrel nutkin you got everyone talking!
nomoretears lovely that you decided to join in, i’m new too and was a bit of a lurker, i find it all so interesting but don’t always know what to put!
If noone can else can make next weekend i’m free a lot of the time (oh dear !) so can do different date if that better!
