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.
I have read and tried lots of cleaning tips from the Internet. From using vinegar and olive oil for cleaning wood, to using soda crystals and vinegar for burnt on food.
Has anyone any hints and tips that they would like to pass on to others.
Come on people join in we may all learn a lot, or laugh at some of the things that they have tried and got wrong.
I received from my grandchildren for Christmas a membership card for my local cinema,well it’s 5 miles away.
The membership card offers cheap or reduced prices for over 60s at certain times and days. Most popular are afternoons.
I went to watch the new film STAN and OLLIE a biography of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. I must say it was one of the best films I have seen for years. The acting is terrific and after 5 minutes of watching, I had forgotten the actors. Steve Coogan is great as Stan and the chap playing Oliver is also great. (forgot is name) The film is great, it has humour, sadness and the sets are full of nostalgia.
I really recommend it for all ages.
Also, I recommend the Showcase Insider membership for good deals and savings in going to the Cinema
Navigating supermarket aisles when shoppers drive at you as though you are invisible - is that a new kind of road rage called aisle rage?
I have had the skin on my ankles and hands opened on occasion with no vestige of apology on their part.
Robots... I think the government is secretly replacing humans with robots who are not the full shilling!
I have just discovered that dried spaghetti is flammable. I cooked tea last night making a yummy pasta sauce,popped the spaghetti into a pan of boiling water. Instead of waiting until all of the pasta fitted into the pan, I turned around to do something else. On turning back the stove was ablaze with lighted pasta. I smothered the flames with a tea towel and laughed.
I can honestly say I have burned pasta cooked in a pan of water. I will never live this down when the family get wind of this 😂
