Hello, Tricia774
I'm Len.
I've not been a member of Silversurfers for very long.
Have you got any hobbies or ideal ways to spend your spare time and relax?

Hello everyone and I am glad to meet you. Working as a teacher in Devon was lovely but on retiring I moved back north as I am now single. Children and grandchildren are strangers now but I have my allotment, painting and drawing. I enjoy days away in B&Bs and after one trip to Italy I fell in love with the place. One of my fellow allotment folk is Italian and I am trying to learn the language. Phew! Hard work at 71. I am fit but not that fit and I would sooner stare at the surf now as my surfing days are long past.
Growing my own food is pleasant just before joining here I was shelling Barlotti beans in the sunshine although being fair skinned I am easily burnt.
Laughter would be nice as it is in short supply these days.
Thank you for getting this far and I hope to read about your hopes and dreams.

Welcome to the site, lots of interesting people to chat with and plenty of topics to comment on. Good luck with the Italian and the allotment.

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I've just turned 60, a retired teacher living in beautiful Dorset. Widowed many years ago with three grown up children. I'm happy, healthy and active. I'd like to find a companion for holidays abroad, cruises etc. I enjoy seeing new places, experiencing different cultures and looking at architecture as well as swimming in warm seas, gentle walking and dining out. If you're interested in chatting to talk about future travel possibilities, please get in touch. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Lynne
Welcome to all of us across the pond & elsewhere. This small island is surrounded by water, this is why we're 'insular', we can't help it. Age is but a number, just think of the life you've enjoyed and how wise you are...and how much more fun there is out there...All the best Beauty.

Hello from West Wales, I’m new to SilverSurfers, so decided to pop by and introduce myself

I’m 55, married to the love of my life and have a large fur family. I’m retired with ill health, but take one day at a time.

I’ve several hobbies and interests, my main one being crafting. I’m one of those people, that like to try anything and everything.

I’m also an avid bookworm, my favourite authors being James Patterson, Val McDermid, Mary Higgins Clark, Agatha Christie, Patricia Cornwall, the list goes on lol.

Being at home most of the time, I tend to watch a lot of TV. Some of my favourites include Downton Abbey, 90 Days, Love Island and lots of crime stuff.

It’s going to sound pretty sad, but I don’t have any close family or friends, so decided to reach out, in an effort to change the situation. I’d love to hear from people all over, especially those that feel we have something in common

I think I’ll stop here and look forward to becoming a part of your community x
Response from Ziggymole made on 21st Aug 2019 09:10:52
Hi,
I'm also new on here, I live in the South Wales Valleys. I was widowed last year and like you I have no close friends as my husband and children were everything. I have two fur babies, an elderly Norweigian Forest cat and a Heinz 57.

I enjoy knitting and crochet and had decided to take up sewing just before my world turned upside down. I'm trying to sell up and downsize to Leicestershire atm. Not a lot of interest in the house though, unfortunately. When it does sell I'll be much closer to my eldest daughter and looking to make new friends and settle in.

I took early retirement on ill health grounds a few years ago and became a full time housewife until my occupational pension kicked in last year (just in time to rescue me from the benefits system). I've just had my first knee replaced and have been stuck in the house for six weeks as I'm not allowed to drive!

I'm interested in finding out about how this community works as my last experience of "chat rooms" was way back in the 90's.

Hi

Recently joined, hoping to make new friends. I live in West Yorkshire and am 57. I was widowed 7 years ago, and although I have lovely friends they are all couples. I would love meet friends who would like to go on holiday, go out to the theatre, enjoy nights out and even a little shopping therapy.

I still work Part time in the NHS.

Hello there I am new girl to the block just looking to make and meet new friends for chat .Just young gal of 83 .still shop and drive my car.monica
Derby shire area village gal see you hopefully
Response from CaroB4 made on 2nd Aug 2019 15:51:40
Hope you are not in Whaley Bridge Monica! Sounds grim and worrying up there just at the moment. Let's hope they get through this without further disaster.... Derbyshire is beautiful when the sun shines...a bit like Yorkshire really! I am in sunny Suffolk where it shines often...an amazing climatic strip which gives us lovely summers,..it was 36 degrees most of last week...too hot really! As hot as the south of France - glad it cooled down a little now!

Response from Beauty made on 25th Jul 2019 20:26:58
Hi Patricia It's the headline post from celtwitch which flags up when we log in....and it's not current. Sincerely hope I won't be banned, but if I am, I don't suppose I'll be missed. All the best on here
Response from CaroleAH made on 25th Jul 2019 21:23:45

For what it is worth I agree - too many old posts cluttering up the forum.

Hi One and All. New on this site and my first posting. After years of work and caring I am now coming to terms with the fact that I can do what I want, when I want. I don't mind being on my own but I have realised that life has passed me by and I need to catch up. So, I am starting a list - books I want to read, films I want to see, places I want to go, things I want to learn to do, etc. As I am very much an 'I'll do it tomorrow person' I thought that by posting on here I would put some pressure on myself to fulfil the list starting with learning to drive an automatic car (I've been driving for over 35 years but despite several attempts cannot get the hang of an automatic). If I can achieve this then I will post the next item on the list. Every day now is going to be a new day in my life.
Response from SilverBlue made on 28th Jul 2019 16:29:11
Welcome to the site turnipicus, I am sure now you have the time you will start to tick the things you want to do off your wish list. I am sure you will master driving an automatic, I have driven both manual and automatics it just takes time to adjust your thinking. Good Luck and let us know how you get on.
Response from turnipicus made on 28th Jul 2019 16:38:04
Thank you - I appreciate your encouragement and will post success or failure.
Response from PatriciaB96 made on 28th Jul 2019 16:54:21
Welcome turnipicus , your find lots of people who have the same intrest as you , this site can be quite interesting , I hope you like it here .
Response from turnipicus made on 28th Jul 2019 17:02:13
Thank you - I think that I am going to benefit immensely from having joined this site and look forward to 'meeting' many people.
Response from georgesmum made on 28th Jul 2019 19:46:48
Welcome turnipicus, what a wonderful outlook you have on life. I really do hope you fulfil many of your dreams and aspirations
Response from turnipicus made on 28th Jul 2019 20:18:39
Thank you for the welcome - much appreciated. Those years that have passed have gone and I cannot get them back but what I can do is try to make the best of what time is left. So I am going to have to cram as much as I can into each day - I have no regrets for what I have missed but I would have regrets if I sat back and did nothing from now on. I hope to get inspiration from others on this site to help me move forward.
Response from georgesmum made on 28th Jul 2019 20:28:22
With your positive attitude I feel sure you will achieve lots in life...go for it!
