My mum when we got older started joining groups like CWA and other various craft groups. She took a cooking course and also started yoga.
My mum was always a SAHM with no friends or hobbies (us kids were her life- she had 3 kids under 3) and through this she made friends and contacts and built up her confidence. It also enabled her to get a job supervising exams through knowing people.
Good luck and enjoy exploring who you are and what you'd like to do xxx

I will be going back to work 3 days a week in a couple of months but it's not something I want to do long-term. I've been in this industry for 13yrs (omg!!!) and want to do something different. Although it pays very well and I have a fair bit flexibility on what days/times I work, I am just sick of it! I don't have the drive or the patience to deal with it all, it just frustrates me!
I have started studying again, I have done 3 subjects towards a graduate diploma and was planning to do another subject this semester. However, DS has been sick a lot and I want to focus on him while we go through all the tests and assessments to see if there is an underlying issue causing him to be unwell so often.
I have enjoyed the study but I'm not sure what I want to do to be honest. It weighs on my mind quite a lot, I think I want to do something in health care but doing uni on campus full time is not possible while my kids are so little.

Can't wait till both my kids are in school so I can find myself. I have NO idea who I am either OP, but this is such a great point @trustychords makes.

It's hard being confronted with the thought "What do you want to do" when you've never had that before. I had a moment that was much the same when I got divorced. All of a sudden there was split custody and I'd spent so many years being a dad and husband that I didn't know how to be anything else! It was scary!
@trustychords hit the nail on the head - try things. Live a little. See what it is that you really enjoy doing and, when you find it, go after it! And don't listen to the haters!
