Just that really. My dcs are with their dad and normally I'm fine pottering around and/or seeing friends but today I've been out and seen one too many shiny happy families sad

Yeh........................... although my children are here. Their dad had them last weekend and that was better as I went to Ikea and then got home and assembled furniture. Today we're all tripping up over each other and the children are fighting and I would love to think there was an adult to talk to.

I never believe the shiny families are as shiny as they seem. Even shiny people get on each other's nerves.

Yes you're right Liz, just feeling sorry for myself today.

Me! But I'm a bit if a fraud.

You can tell me to piss of this thread but I hardly ever see dp. He is out of this house 8-8 six days a week, working. So hardly sees dd, about half an hour every morning.

I've let all my friendships slide and don't really have any close friends anymore.

Fed up of being trapped in this bastarding house.

When I had dd1. Was a 'real' lone parent and at least I had my weekends to myself to go out and get adult company.

I'm feeling sorry fir myself too ! wine shall we get pissed!

I love dd but I really miss my social life - I'm getting bitter about every one having fun on facebook. I've stopped getting invites- boooooo.

I don't think they are all really shiny! I used to think my cousins family were shiny but behind closed doors they are a mess!

Oh and just remembers my ssis, her family looks like the pictures you get in photo frames before you use them. He cheats and they are WELL skint even though they drive posh cars.

And at a BBQ ssis who is actually off council estate but thinks she is mrs bouquet her dd 5 told her to 'shurrup' . Ssis , horrified said " dd! There is a T in shut! " grin muppets !

You're all invited round to my house. I have some of those gordons ready mixed cans of gin!

I miss having a social life too. It's dawned on me recently, although I've been literally pushing it out of my mind for a few years now I think, that all my 'socialising' is in the mornings. I have two mornings a week and I sometimes meet people for coffee. If I suggest doing something at the weekend or in the evening people just pick fluff of their collars because they save the weekends for their husbands, or because they socialise with other couples. So, I logged on to a dating website earlier, but the first step was an invitation to say something about myself. Argh. It's so hard. I don't even know if I want a boyfriend. I just could do with company. Good company though. Not some randomer with a penis. (sorry)

Yes to morning socialising! I've a feeling these nights getting lighter are going to drag. There is a dent in the settee where my arse sits!

Oooooh what dating site have you gone on? I went on once a while back grin

I haven't even completed the registration Cigarettes!

I know what you mean about the sofa! I am like sheldon cooper here. The end of the sofa near the plug, so that my laptop can reach the plug and near enough to the side table, in the direct line of the tv ! argh :-/

My dp works Way and I get lonely as I work and study from home but it's not the same as having another parent who has got your back
