Last year we received several Christmas cards where the senders indicated that they wouldn't be sending cards next year and giving a donation to charity instead.
Fair enough, though if they sent charity cards they could do both things!
My question is whether to send a card to them this year?
What do others think/do in this situation?
I find this site very difficult to use, so I was wondering if anyone would like to just chat here or be a penpal via email or snail mail.
I am 67 physically disabled but have an active mind and live independently. I make greeting cards, write bible studies for a blog, enjoy Southern Gospel music and a good weepy film.
This is probably a very long shot at trying to make new connections and/or new friends, but we all have to start somewhere.
Hi. I’m new to this group. I'm trying to figure it out but very confusing. I’m not old but not young, I like to think of myself as well seasoned.
I like to chat with different people, learn about different countries, etc. sometimes I just need to talk to someone who doesn’t know me. That may sound strange but it’s true. I live in the States.
Between my wife and I, we have 6 children and 1 grandson. Plus 4 fur babies: 1 lab, 2 pit mixes, and 1 imperial shitzu. I love outdoors- sun, water, nature. This is just a bit about me
Do you ever just want to chat with someone who doesn’t know you? Hopefully I’m not the only one.
I’m 54 not retired just yet but am looking forward to 62. Live in the States.
I am definitely a dog person. 4 at the moment. 1 lab, 2 pit mixes, and 1 itty bitty imperial shitzu. I love outdoors, watching my birds and love gardening, although after back surgery raised beds for me now.
Being in, on, or around water is my Valium.
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.
