i'm here because I am so lonely.

Stick around to day chick, I'll be here. I need to chat to people to keep me sane.
05/04/2013 at 09:18
To keep me sane while I'm working! Especially days like today when I'm at home so don't have anyone to talk to.

Its school holidays, I have an almost 6 year old girl, two 2 year old boys to entertain, its fecking cold and everywhere indoors is so expensive! Grrrr

I'm here because I'm a SAHM and whilst I do see lots of friends it still gets lonely. It's simple really, I like chatting to you lot!
1stbaby I feel your pain, I have a 5 year old, 2 & half year old and 19 month old to entertain, it's hard going!

It passes the 7 and a half hours i'm at work. It's so dull though, this place used to be the first place i'd check in a morning when i came to work to find out what i'd missed. Now there's not much happening at all.

Cause I have five minutes spare!!!

I'm sick of watching Thomas the tank repeats

I like talking to you lot when I get the chance!
Because it's easy to browse, when the kids are busy making a mess.

I'm using this as a distraction from the house work I am in desperate need of doing... I also have literally no food in so im avoiding the food shop too.

Its school holidays. My daughter has her friend over and they are happily occupied. I'm bored. Its snowing. There's no way I could drag them to the park even if I wanted to go myself!
Yesterday I read about 100 pages of the Wishing Chair to her so I'm enjoying the break from that. She's much easier to entertain now than when she was a toddler though.

I used to be here/hitched all the time but its so slow now I only check here once or twice a week
07/04/2013 at 22:14
Because I like the few people who are here to chat to. I like all the OTers, unfortunately there are not enough of us - when you take into account, work, looking after our kids and the rest of life - who can keep it ticking over with a lot of traffic.
When I have a lurk on DW it is crazy how many posts there are and how regularly replies are posted. It is the volume of people here that needs to drastically increase.

Because I can't let go. Like Alsi said, I like the OTers, I like being part of the community, and I would be sad of it wasn't here any more. But seriously, how much longer can it go on like this?

I also like also like being part of a community. I have been busy the past week so haven't posted as much. I feel that I don't have anything to add on BT and reply to what posts I can, but I feel like I've 'been there, done that' as I'm on my second child, iyswim. We do need more people over here but it frustrates me when I see OT posts over on BT. I've told Sarah that we need new people over here, I don't know what else can be done. I don't want to see this place dying on its ass.

WCatarinaS! I'm an old time OTer from the purple days of Hitched and it was amazing - I'm not sure what we can do to get it back though.
(And today I'm specifically here because I'm at work and literally am the only person here - and I even got here early for a change. It's going to be a looong day!)
08/04/2013 at 12:02
I'm flitting between here and hitched to try to avoid doing any work! Hehe.

I try to get on when I can but I tend to lurk from my phone. I'm mainly for WL thread!
