Hi, I’m Bee. I’m 39.... ok I’m not, I’m 54 but I’ve been 39 since I was 39, and even baffled my GP when he asked how old I was recently. It’s a running joke now - everyone knows I’m not 39 but they humour me! Would like to say I’m new, but I’m feeling pretty old to be honest. But I’m new to the chat and the forums.
I live in Middlesex in a place called Harrow. Not as quaint down the hill as it is up the hill where the famous school is though. I come from East End stock and loved life in the old East End, sadly it’s changed a lot over the years so don’t go back too often. However, I’m an avid supporter of my team - West Ham United - and a Season Ticket holder too. I love watching them play - win or lose, I’ll be there!
I like reading, like writing and dabble in a bit of poetry when the mood takes me. I run a few football groups on Facebook which I enjoy and have got to know lots of people through that little venture. We meet up on match days - although when that will happen again is a mystery right now. I love driving and will tackle any journey with ease. I’m not a lover of driving in London though, where it’s a case of ‘each for themselves!’ I would rather take the scenic route, drive an extra half an hour and save my sanity.
I have a good... no GREAT sense of humour and like to make people smile when I can - it’s so much nicer seeing a happy face! And it’s good to laugh! I used to teach unemployed adults when I worked, but sadly had to give up due to my disabilities. I don’t go out often (even before lockdown) and I’m happy enough staying home and pottering around in my own 4 walls. I’d like to learn a bit about gardening as I’m hopeless and can’t keep a plant alive in my house for any length of time.
What am I doing wrong? I also look after an 80 year old neighbour who’s in the world on her own now, and we often have a giggle and a cuppa together. No cats, no dogs or goldfish, but I do have a little spider who marches back and forth across my living room ceiling every day! If I could do as many steps as him I’d have no problems all!
It would be great to find a pen pal - from near or far who has the same kind of interests - or not - male or female, I get on with just about everyone. So as I said, at the moment I’m 39, going on 54 and my bones feel like they’re 101, but strangely my brain thinks I’m 21 still!
So any young, middle aged oldies like me, who fancy a pen pal, chatty buddy or listening ear, drop me a reply or a private message and I'd be happy to have a chat and make new friends
