    Default Greetings from the UK

    Hi

    I'm new here, I'm from the United Kingdom. I'm a mother of 3 children who are 6, 4 and 2. I'm Engaged to my Best Friend. Together we have a pet shark and a tiger barb (Tropical Fish)

    I'm a crochet addict and I love my coffee and wine!

    I went searching for an active parenting forum, a place where I could come and chat to others and came across your forum. So I hope you don't mind me joining.

    I look forward to getting to know you all some more soon.

    Welcome to the site! I don't live in London (Ontario) anymore either and I still love this forum. It's far better than any one I tried to find when I moved from London! I also love coffee and wine and crochet haha! Too bad we don't live in the same area, although I did just get back from the UK after visiting my family for 2.5 weeks

    Welcome! It must have been a big move with three little ones! How are you settling in? We moved from overseas a year ago, too!

    I went looking for worldwide forums, a chance for me to *fingers crossed* make some new friends.

    This forum when I found it via Google Search looked so friendly and colourful. The look of the forum made me want to join. A lot of UK forums look dull and if in my opinion don't have a good feel about them I don't join!

    We stayed in Poole and Verwood in Dorset but spent the second week mostly at a beach hut at Sandbanks! I'm very lucky to have my family live near such beautiful places! I've been three times in the last four years with my daughter to visit (I've visited before she was born as well) and I feel like I'm just going to my second home now Where are you in the UK?
