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 😢
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?
Hello all, I am new! Never joined a chat site before. Am looking for people to chat with from near and far!
It is understandable that everyone is a little unsettled! With this virus here and abroad, we all need to feel comfort and reassurance! I
know everyone feels a little bit alone, not being able to get out like before. I am glad for this chat room.
By the way, we are going to get through this! Together from miles apart! I am here to listen, if you want to talk!
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!
Hello. First time here and I'm going to moan. I live alone and have been trying to find a rescue dog for a few months.
Yesterday I found what I considered a perfect match - a 10-year-old terrier looking for a quiet life with a single adopter.
I submitted an application form and received a phone call within half an hour so I thought YES!
It turns out that because the flat I live in has a communal garden my home isn't suitable - it would seem every rescue dog in the world needs it's own enclosed garden.
I'm glad animals aren't handed over to just anyone without checks but aren't the rescue places being a little too picky?
Hi All, this is not Hattie - it's her daughter.
Mum used to talk about this Silversurfers often, and got a lot of joy from it. She would have been pretty outspoken - her real name was Bernie. I am not sure how close nit or regular users here are, but just in case - She died 21st June last year after a short illness, I was by her side with my cheek on hers when she passed. She took her last breath as the last line of Il Divo - My Way closed. We were listening to them together - she loved Il Divo.
I am currently in England from South Africa and just noticed that she was still logged in. So decided to post this - sorry if it's not appropriate, but Mum always used to say she loved winding everyone up on here, so if it's not appropriate - unlucky ;) Love Kelly xx
