Hello from North Wales
« on: August 21, 2008, 01:04:48 PM »
Hello, just a little introduction about myself.  My name is Wendy and I have a 7 year old daughter Amelia.  We live near Mold in North Wales.  I came across this site back in February and has been the best thing that ever happened to me.  

I've been a single parent since I was pregnant, basically my ex didn't want to know.  Its not been a particularly easy ride as he left me with loads of debt which I'm still trying to pay off but hey ho won't make that mistake a second time!  

We've been on a few of the day trips and 2 of the weekend camping trips.  I'd never been camping before but thoroughly enjoyed it as there were so many of us and it was great for me as I was able to unwind and chat to other adults and Amelia went off and played and didn't bother me unless she wanted feeding!

Sadly there aren't many of us in Wales involved in SWK but hopefully if I can arrange some meets this will change.  If you're a bit nervous about the whole thing of meeting other new people please feel free to PM me for a chat.  

Wendy

Hi Lallybird and welcome to the forum

You won't be able to send or receive pm's until you are a paid member, hope this helps.

Hi Lallybird.  Welcome to the site! Defo up for coffee or lunch, would be great to meet you.

You too Joy!  Perhaps we could meet somewhere between Wrexham and Prestatyn.  Any ideas?

That sounds good to me, never been there before but heard people say its really good. I'm free most weekends towards the end of Jan (23rd or 30th) if anyone free either weekend?

I can do the 23rd Jan (Sat).

Can't remember how old everyone's children are - but this place caters from the under 3's to big kids

Great food and coffee!!

I'm gutted, just read your post and missed the date.  I only live in Oakenholt with 2 fab children under 4.  If you guys do decide to meet up again, do you think you could extend an invitation to me as well.  ;D

Thanks in advance.
