  • Be Proactive

    Be Proactive

    I was widowed a few years ago after 45 years of happy marriage. It wasn’t unexpected as my husband was 12 years older than me and the final 12 months had been hard for both of us. Fortunately I like my own company so living on my own isn’t a problem but I have aContinue reading “Be Proactive”


  • The F Word

    I have never had anyone swear at me using the “F” word! I was 16 when I saw it written on a menu as I was serving in a cafe and innocently asked the lady owner what it meant. We were both extremely embarrassed when she told me! Now in my dotage I am anContinue reading “The F Word”

  • IS IT ME?

    I was walking the dog the other day when my phone rang. I managed to pull it out of my pocket despite the dog going berserk and it said call number unknown. “Hello” I said, and a faint voice said something which being partially deaf I was unable to hear. With the dog jumping andContinue reading “IS IT ME?”
