I meant to ask you Jenna what you think about the HS2 business around your area?

Hi Sandra,
I haven't been taking any notice to be honest. What will be will be.
I am a worrier but I think its time to just get on with things.
I am usually busy with 1 thing or another and have too young adults , my Son and Daughter that take time up in my head!
Anyhow, keep chatting...
Good to hear back from you.

Hi, I'm new here today! Just learning how to navigate the site and hoping to find friendly people to chat to. I am 58 and I'm in the south but I have friends in Yorkshire, so that caught my eye.
Hope to hear back Jenna, or anybody else who would like to chat.

Hi Sandra,
Great to hear from you. I am having trouble navigating around too.
I am 52 and would love to chat and make new friends. I live in Sheffield. I have family but always like to make new friends.
Hope to hear back from you.
Do you work? I work part time. I like to keep fit, love fresh air and being mindful of beautiful sutrroundings. I like Theatre, Community projects....could go on but will see if you reply.

Hi, So good to hear back from you.
I am not massively tech savvy so it will take me a while to check out all the features on this site. I'm hoping this is a good way to make new friends during covid. We work at home so I don't have the general meeting up in the office and informal chat.
I still work full time and it's good to have something to do during the day. My job is busy so I often find there's not a lot of spare time. What sort of work do you do? Mine is general admin.
I love getting out for walks around our local area.
Are you finding that covid has put a stop to theatre and community projects for now?

Hi Sandra.
Im not tech savvy either. I work in admin too 3 days a week, 1 day in the office, 2 at home.
I have been going out to shows etc recently and during the end of Lockdown, including some holidays.
Basically I find everything is happening as was before covid. Restrictions in the main all gone. I always wear my mask but not many do,
I am not letting it stop me doing anything I want to do as within reason I believe we have to carry on.
I am usually busy with 1 thing or another and do have a family with young adults so to be fair I am exposed to their "social life" activity as well as they are not as concerned or worried as older people are. On the other hand there are a lot of older people who seem to think "to hell" with the masks etc.
Each to their own I guess.
Strange times.
Keep in touch.

Great to hear back from you Jenna. I've had a busy and stressful work week with no time to chat on this site. Got a fair bit done at work though so that feels good.
I have really stopped going out and about and I have been thinking that I need to start getting out again and meeting people.
I always wear a mask but I do feel a bit worried still, especially about being indoors. But I can feel that lack of anything social is damaging in itself.
Lots to think about there.
The shows sound brilliant. Before lockdown I was going to meditation days and I would like to do that again, but it's the indoor thing with covid.
I see young people about and they just seem to be doing their thing the same as ever. I envy them not having to be so concerned about covid.

Hi Sandra
Sorry for the delay. I have been busy as well. We had tech problems at work. I also have taken on a job taking minutes which is new to me and it has taken me absolutely ages!!!! Ridiculous. I am waiting for them to be sent back and then I have to amend...
I take on too much at times and should say no more.
Yes it is important to go out for mental health. Wear a mask in Public.
Don't go anywhere too busy.
It's a tricky one but the longer you leave it the harder it will become.
Keep chatting on here. You have interaction this way too.
You never know, may make some real good friiends.
