I retired last year. Decided to get some work done on my garden - patio now I'm home more.
The work is poor but they have said they will rectify it. They came and did some more work but it's still very poor. They are coming again in a weeks time. I don't really want them here. Without going into details they have been condescending and patronising.
Citizens advice said I need to give them a chance to put the work right. Is there any kind of organisation who would have someone be here with me when they come?
I can't express how nervous they make me feel.
Our daughter has just moved from Oxfordshire to South Wales and the house that she has bought does not have mains gas.
She wants to to heat the house and water with a wood pellet boiler but we do not know much about them.
As they are eye wateringly expensive I was wondering if anyone can offer any advice about this type of boiler before she spends her money.
Hi again, posted earlier, but can't find my message, maybe it was too early. I live southeast, have interest in gardening used to be avid reader not so much now, still riding a motorbike and in fair weather take a ride up around the beautiful Norfolk coast and down to the southwest.
Winter time takes its toll and I need to fill this time and that's why I have joined silversurfers, so here's to meeting people.
All my friends now are my age, made when I was a younger woman. We are scattered far and wide and write or phone and keep in touch. Some are single, some of us are married but I think deep down we have all gone through a similar life as now in our early 70's. We have all said that somehow it is so hard to find new friends as you get older. Yes there are lots of clubs, village halls that sort of thing but somehow the people you might meet there are not like your old friends.
I wonder why this is, which leaves one to conclude that sharing a lifetime of memories can just not be replaced.
I would like to hear from people who feel the same as I do and what is the solution to meeting new friends later on in life.
Hello! I'm new on here.
56 two 'children' of 20 and 17. Living on Merseyside. Working part-time.
On a new stage of my life now and feeling isolated and a bit lonely these days, I'm calm, placid, optimistic and good-natured!
Looking for chat. I enjoy reading, films, good conversation, the arts, walking, the odd trip to another UK city maybe a couple of times a year.
Be lovely to hear from like-minded people.
