I’m alone, I have no family support or friends.
I’m sad to think that I have two neighbours both know that I’m alone and disabled yet not one of them has even put a note through my door to ask if I’m ok , what happened to community support!!
Has Scotland just decided to look after number one??
I would appreciate it if I just had someone to talk to 😢
So - why did you choose your online name here? (if it's not just your own name)
I have just realised how poncy mine is - a perfect number is one whose factors (other than itself) add back to the original number. So, 1+2+3=6, 1+2+4+7+14=28.
Mathematicians should not be allowed out on their own!
I bought a new pack of fairly expensive clothes pegs last month hoping to peg out my laundry when the weather improves only to find that each one I have tried to use has snapped in half!
Not only a waste of money but extremely frustrating.
I'm sure, like me, many of you have bought lots of useless objects over the years, whether expensive or cheap, big or small, it would be lovely to hear your stories. Melina :)
I have six grandchildren who no longer live at home with their parents and I very rarely receive a Thank You. It is so easy these days. They could easily pick up the telephone or send an email. I feel like just sending a card.
Do other grandparents always receive a Thank You?

I have been an air hostess for 48 years and I will be retiring in 2 months...and not by choice!
My company has offered a “one time” phenomenal severance package that cannot be turned down. I’m 68 yrs old and I’m not like most people my age.
Working, especially in my job, has kept me active, fit and mentally stimulated. I look half my age. The downside to this good fortune is that other women my age do not want to be friends with me. The wives of my husband’s friends and our older neighbors do not call me back or include me in any plans. We have a big party every year and invite them all to our house. Everyone has a great time but it never results in reciprocal invitations. Their conversations seem to focus on aches and pains, who died, medications and housework. I focus on their issues and problems with empathy as I do want to know them better and I want their friendship. I NEVER talk about my time spent in exotic locations around the world for obvious reasons. These one-way friendships will be felt more intensely after I retire. I cannot wallow in self pity as I have so much to be thankful for.
My husband is 70 and we have a loving relationship, my children and grandchildren are all happy and healthy. Although I want to have friends, coffee and conversations .... I am also very much an introvert and this is reflected in my favorite things to do. We have 25 acres of land... pastures, woods, rolling hills, ponds and many wild animals are residents of this sanctuary. We no longer have horses and farm animals - all were beloved pets. I love working in the woods clearing brush, grooming trails and paths, planting beautiful trees,...with my large foolish dog bounding and laughing at my side. Now that I’ve written all of this, I think I don’t need to wish for friends who don’t want me. I’m on my knees thanking God .... the best friend of all.
