Realisations after Turning 60

Hi everyone, I turned 60 this week and age has never bothered me before but this week really highlighted things for me.

Apart from getting older it was the lack of interaction with people, to the point that I ended up with just 7 cards and daughter forgot.

Anyway, less of the sob sob story lol.. I realised I need to increase me friendship base and I am looking to make special friends where we can chat, put the worlds to rights, find out how each other are and be there as friends should be I do hope to hear from you and please get in touch

Hi Carl T
Mmmm 60 ....memories
Working like crazy.... dodging bullets from everywhere, supporting family members and loving it!
Retired now and looking at the world through clear specs.
Yes things have changed, family grown up and away and bereavement too.
Now I have time to Volunteer for Local. charities (I am not a do gooder) but I like to help out, meet people and raise funds along the way. Time to do the things I want to do, within reason and piggy bank allowing
Try it and see what’s going on around you and then like me, pick up things again after this chaos is sorted.
It’s amazing to see how many new acquaintances are out there and some even turn into good friends
Go for it, you have made the first move!
