Hi Countrymum and welcome
Try not to take the lack of replies too personally. From what I've noticed, there doesn't seem to be a more active time on this board. The more you post on here and get to know people, the more replies and interaction you'll get.
This board tends to have a lot of people who sign up, post a few messages, and then disappear forever. A lot of people seem to be reluctant to "waste" time posting replies to people who might not be around for a long time.
My advice would be just to keep posting and doing your own thing, writing messages helps to keep yourself accountable anyway. In time, people will see that you're here for the long haul, and you'll get a lot more feedback and response.
All the best!
