My name is Pauline, I live in Essex, in a Village close to the River Crouch. I retired after working 16 years as a Pre-School Supervisor. I went to College to get Certificates and really enjoyed it after so long. Believe I was the oldest in our group, but nobody really talked about age. I loved working with children having done it all of my life. I was a Nurse on a Children's ward that looked after severely disabled children. I then married and had 4 children of my own. Now have 6 grandchildren. I play short mat bowls twice a week as a pastime and a good opportunity to socialise with people of similar age.
Hello, I'm new here, just thought I'd introduce myself, I'm Yvonne and I have just turned 50 on 25/09 and been having a crisis over it, until the day before my birthday and suddenly I was embracing it and looking forward to it, I keep saying I've been liberated (lol) but how liberated you can be when you're caring for an ageing parent on your own I don't know.. Anyhow if I can't get to the world I'm going to bring the world to me, and finding this site has certainly helped me make my first steps..

A warm welcome awaits you just ask at the bar for the pub group we do arrange to try other pubs every few weeks you don't need to drink or have a meal.
I have recently become a Silver Surfer, finding the forum opened opportunities for online correspondence, which possibly opens dialogue with like minded people. However, in a short space of time, my speculative forays into forum topics, show a distinctive pattern of early enthusiasm, encouraging welcomes and vague responses. Most of these have faded in a very short space of time. So may I investigate, how many so called topics have developed into long running information sharing; long term friendships of varying depths of emotion; exchanges of ideas, etc. I would welcome the opportunity to establish a coterie of correspondents covering a few subjects of mutual interest under one forum banner, rather than the piecemeal subject matter which elicits a few meagre replies.
I joined a couple of years ago, not for very long, as for some reason, it would never allow me to sign in.
Got email from Sally in the end I replied and she has sorted it out. I used another email address which has let me in now. The other one is Gmail and I've had this happen with so many other things over the years. Just wondered why it happens with Google or Gmail? It's happened so many times - goes astray.
Anyone else had the same problem? A couple of my friends have had the same problems too.
