    Afternoon @Threepetfam :) 

    Welcome to the community, how are you today? 

     This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 A few notable pages I’d recommend visiting would be:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.

    Welcome to the community @Threepetfam! I have to say that I'm a bit jealous of your pets... Do you mind me asking what breeds of dog you have?

    As SueHeath has said, you've come to the right place to chat to friendly, likeminded people. 

    Feeling a little lonely or isolated can be really tough. I hope that being a part of the community can help to ease those feelings a bit. Have you ever tried joining a social group for parents in your local area? That could be another way of connecting with others in a similar position.

    That's a shame @Threepetfam, but hopefully the community can be a good source of support for you. Along with the coffee lounge, you might like to visit our category for discussions relating to children, parents, and families :)
