    Unhappy Isolated stay-at-home mum

    Hi. I am from Emerald Beach, which is just north of Coffs Harbour.

    I am a stay at home mum of 2 - Josh, who is 9 months old, and Kai, who is 7.

    I worked full time while Kai was a baby but this time around we can afford for me to stay at home.

    We only have one car, which my other half takes for work each day, and we live 15 minutes' drive up the highway from civilisation.

    On top of that, we've lived here only 4 months, after having traispsed around the countryside following my other half's career, so I know no one.

    I love being there for my kids, but I'm having difficulty with this isolation.

    Can anyone else relate? I'd love to have a chat!

    I can. My husband takes the car to work every day. He works Monday to Friday from 8am till 4pm. That means I'm stuck at home all day with the boys unless I'm game enough to take them both for a walk by myself, which I'm not that stupid.
    I live in Wagga Wagga. We are moving to a new house on the 3rd June, so the packing is keeping me a little busy which is good. But there is only so much I can pack for now.
    I love writting emails. So feel free to email me anytime to chat. My email address is angcal1@yahoo.com.au
    I hope to hear from you soon.
    Katherine.

    Default Same

    I am a little further south, 45km from nearest town which is Forster. We moved here when bub was born so dont know many other females. I live in small fishing village full of old, sexist fisherman! My hubby takes car to work so I am usually at home. I fill my day with baby chores AND time at beach and walks- try to keep the TV off!!

    I am currently going to mothers group but most know each other from school, I'll see if I can break into their circle.

    Happy to chat caffs@hotmail.com or through PM.

    Your post was an old one... don't know whether you're still kicking around but it sounds like you are close by... are you there?
