In need of a friendly convo... :)

Hello people of the EF, my name is Erin and I'm 23, I have a baby boy who is 5.5 months old. I am originally from Redditch, near Birmingham in England. I moved to Estavayer Le Lac in February 2009 to be with my now husband.
Since giving birth to my son Kellin in February I have become slightly home sick and missing my family and friends in England very much. I can understand more French than I can speak and lack confidence when speaking French which has made it quite hard to find friends here. So I am on the search to find some English speaking friends who live not too far from Estavayer, that can put a bit of 'normality' back into my life, and help me get my confidence back.
Hope to hear from you friendly EF-ers soon x

Hey Erin, welcome to Switz!
You'll find friends in no time, specially new mums.
You're in the right place (EF) to find friendly, opinionated and experienced people. I'm way over the other side, in the scary German speaking area, but want to offer you a warm welcome anyway.

Good luck to you and your little one
Jill

I often come to Estavayer and am intrigued by all the frogs hanging across the streets - it is a lovely town.
If you do a search with Estavayer in the box I remember a couple of members who were looking to meet up there. Failing that, post a meet up - I am sure you will get a response

Re: In need of a friendly convo... :)

Welcome to the forum and in Estavayer. that's a nice place (at least when I visited it several years ago...)

As already said, this forum is the good place to find some friends. I guess that if there's mums in your area, they will get to you quickly

Nice avatar picture, baby boy is cute
