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 😢
Woke up this morning; to the sound of rain pattering on my window - thinking about another long day in splendid isolation. Hence my exploration into online chat forums.Have I come to the right place for some interesting conversations? I shall be 64 next month. Have recently semi-retired.My children are now out in the world and I wouldn't dream of bothering them. But life seems so very different now (from the last 20 years as a teacher) and I'm not used to uncertainty.Things to chat about - I love reading, acquired an allotment last year which has been great, and I absolutely love walking (but not in the rain). Hoping to make some new friends.
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?
My name is David. I am 65 and I live in Georgia. I am a retired construction contractor. I am now into a private business that keeps me pretty laid back and closer to my grandson who lives about 25 mi away with his paternal grandmother. My life is simple and I try to be honest blunt to the people I come across both in my private life and line of work.Please comment if you care for a chat. God bless you all!
Do you, if rules allow, attend the funeral of a family member who you haven’t seen for almost 30years? A cousin has died, I have never met any of her family and I doubt anyone at the service would recognise me. Do I attend? Thanks in advance
My comfort food is usually bread-based (I reduce the carbs in other meals to make up for the surge!). Cheese & bananas on toast: Slice bananas onto dry toast - you can butter it but why gild the lily? Slice mild cheese over the bananas (eg, Edam, Gouda or red Leicester). Grill until melted. Can be topped with another slice of toast, but why gild the etc etc...? An exquisite cream tea sandwich (not very healthy, but when you need one, you need one): Spread strawberry jam on a piece of soft white bread. Top with whipped cream (or gunk from a squirty can if you're that desperate). Put another slice of soft white bread on top. Don't bother to cut it, just smash it into your face. Luvverly!I feel better just for talking about it. Have a nice day.
