Hello everyone, this is my first post on this forum. I am a widow and retired from teaching 6 years ago. I live in a pretty village near to Cambridge.

I am looking forward to chatting to people from all over the world.

I live with my daughter and son in law but in my own accommodation. I have a Westie called Kessie.

I am fairly new to this area so COVID has meant no mixing and making new acquaintances, feeling a bit lonely at times so I look forward to joining in.

Hello, I’ve just joined, I was widowed almost 9 years ago I live alone apart from 2 rather large cats and my 5 month fox faced beagle. I’m fortunate as my 4 children, grandchildren and great children all live very near. I m not able to see them as much as usual due to the restrictions but we are in contact by phone and FaceTime. I look after my youngest sons daughters twice a week as both my son and fiancé work so they are my bubble family. I walk my puppy twice a day, I’m very lucky as it’s quiet where I live and it’s just 5 minutes from farm fields and hillside walks. It’s just short walks at the moment as he s young but I’m looking forward to much longer walks when the weather improves. I was a teacher too but in Further and Higher Education. Take care.
