I love being a stay at home mum. I have time to be with my children, prepare them homecooked meals and snacks and ensure the house is tidy, and I’m even studying a degree. However I find myself quite often feeling lonely. The constant constraints of doing things for the children sometimes gets overwhelming. I’ve tried to connect with other mums at the school, at church and in the community but I just don’t seem to be able to develop the relationships. Whilst lonely I wouldn’t change my children or my life – just hoping I can develop some friendships soon.
