Hi Butterfly Mumma,
welcome to beyond blue.
Moving... whether a short distance or a between states is a big thing - new people, new culture to get used to. And it takes time to settle in - sometimes too long for our liking. It does not ease the pain any as you try to fit into the new environment.
i also would like to acknowledge the strength you have in looking after the kids, in moving to the new place, overcoming your depression, and writing here.
And perhaps sometimes when we move to a new place we don't know about all the things around us - other sporting clubs, group meetings etc. For example, at the local library on a Sun morning they have a parents/kids reading thing which is more of social thing. My kids did aus-kick when they were much younger. (They tried out soccer also.) For my kids it was an opportunity to meet other kids, and the parents get involved also.
You might get other ideas looking for local groups on Facebook for yourself.
There maybe other options for your youngest sporting wise? Tell me a little more about what he likes.
I hope you don't mind me asking... Have you gotten over the death of your parents? Loneliness is one thing, loss is another. A lot has happened in your life recently; and if professional help is required that is OK.
I was going to ask you about your neighbours and other things, but went on a different tangent. Sorry. I am listening and if you want to chat some more, just reply and I will come back.
