Lonely part 2

I'm sure that Tiger being FIFO makes the loneliness worse. Solo parenting 24/7 is tough. I do have people that I can go to visit or who will come and visit me, but having Tiger come home every night used to make such a big difference.

After spending so many years working and always having people around, being alone all the time is an adjustment. Sure, I've been a sahm for three years now, but I still miss having company. As strange as it is, I love being alone, however being alone with kids is very different to being all alone. 

Whilst I do have people who I can visit, I don't get adult company every day. Ive been very fortunate recently because my BFF hasn't been working full time so we've spent a lot of time together. I have no idea what I'll do when she's back at work full time. 

My online friends are the ones who keep me sane and give me adult conversation, without them I think I'd go crazy.

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I also love alone time but it's not the same as when your kids are around! I'm currently on mat leave with a 7 month old and it can be so isolating. Still navigating through motherhood. It's so refreshing to read someone else feeling the same way.

    1. And no one seems to talk about it, I don't know why. I feel so much better now that people tell me they feel the same way.

      I hope you are enjoying motherhood and you find some nice friends xx
