I moved to sheffield 5 weeks ago and am dreading the thought of the school holidays, ( i have four kids aged 7-15) as i'm really lonely with no-one to chat with. i think i must seem rude as i find it hard to talk to people, school playgroud neighbours etc, its a combination of shyness and not understanding your yorkshire folks accents.
if anyone has any ideas where i can go to meet either mums or mature students, i start uni in september, please can you give them to me. I'm not really a club and pub person, more a coffee and a gossip!
Well I dont really have any suggestions but I am in a similiar positon to you - minus the kids and shyness - so drop me a PM if you would like to hook up
I have been living in SHeffield for two weeks now and am preparing to start a Degree in Counselling in September. So far apart from my bloke I only know a couple of pps in town and would love to expand my social circle and get to know locals and this great city a lot better
I am from London origianlly, very laid back and easy going, offbeat slightly wicked sense of humour and mad about music tho it has to be said I am a real lightweight when it comes to drinking!
Hope it all goes well for you
