  • Yes.

    and I do. A drop of Wine or a Malibu and Chocolate milk maybe once every six months. But other than that I am tea tottle.

    I have actually only ever been drunk 3 times in my life.  I mean like really intoxicated. All when I was in my teens and all with serious hangover consequences.

    That taught me a lesson I never have let go of. Guess…[Read more]

  • This is going to sound all defeatest here.

    But have you ever heard the saying “Never meet your idols They are always never as you imagine them”

    I don’t go much for celebrities. The real celebs are the ones that do work to help others every day. Not the ones you see on television or in films. Who may make a token gesture once in a while. The…[Read more]

    I know that feeling Kitty.

    I have had a stomach problem for a couple of years. No one can find what it is after all the tests. Some weeks it feels as you describe vaguely unwell and other times it’s painful. Especially in the mornings. ( No, it can’t be morning sickness. lol) Ending up with its just fine. (The fine lasts for about an hour or so)…[Read more]

  • Thanks, ladies. I wondered if it was just me that was getting dating discussion suggestions.

    If it was an algorithm then I wondered where it had picked up I was looking at dating sites. I haven’t been to a dating site in years.

    I also couldn’t understand the recent discussions title. Some of these were a few years old.

    It’s a little clearer now

  • Well I have found out the problem.

     

    The radiator has a hole in it. It will have to be replaced.

    Yes, I could do that myself. But there is so much involved in cars of this day and age. for mine, I would have to take the front off to get to it practically. So yes I could do it in my dream world. I say dream as its a lot of work and I’m no spring…[Read more]

  • I have a question regarding the site if anyone may know the answer. As I am still relatively new here

    Are the articles created on an algorithm of personal tastes. or are the same for everyone?

    I have these right now

  • I wouldn’t say I am jealous of any celebrities.

     

    If you break it down. who would want their lives judged on Facebook or Instagram or whatever they use? I’m not a big social media person.

    The money! Yes, we could all do with a few more pounds in their bank account. But how much can you spend in one lifetime? Money doesn’t buy you happiness. But…[Read more]

  • Rowena replied to the topic Would you fix your own car? in the forum General Chat 2 months ago

    Yes, cars are so much more complicated now. I can remember the time, (Listen to me like I’m old or something lol) When it was really basic. In fact, dads friend had a car. that had only 2 fuses in it. I think mine has 3 fuses boxes with maybe about 15 to 20 fuses in each. I only know where one of these boxes is and that’s because one of them had…[Read more]

  • For me. I have found new discoveries that I wouldn’t have found if we hadn’t have locked down.

    I have found more appreciation for the great outdoors and nature in general. It’s funny how when you could just go out when you felt like you really weren’t too concerned. But since it was restricted My love and respect of the outdoors has grown so much…[Read more]

  • The link works for me. But Oh my, I do not like that computer voice on the red. It spoils the whole poem.

     

    It’s was better if I quoted the rest in my head.

    Well done Kitkat. Awesome work.

  • Rowena replied to the topic Hi everyone in the forum Introductions 2 months ago

    Hi Lilyrae.

    Welcome to the forum.
    I hope we can give you some of that girl power you require in what can be stressful times.

    Please do jump in anywhere and anytime. It’s lovely to read a new perspective on things.

  • How much could you do?

    When I was younger my dad was an avid car repair fella. We didn’t have a lot of money but had a car that was needed to get to work and back. My dad was determined to repair all of it himself. Needless to say. I picked up a lot of knowledge from watching him and holding the spanners and such like.

    Fast forward to now.

  • Welcome to the forum ralphy.

     

    What a strange subject for your first post. I would have personally gone with flower arranging or what is your favourite hot drink.

    Not that any of us are nieve. But it would have been nice just to ease yourself onto the forum.

     

    I don’t know about anyone else here. But a thong on a man is just wrong on so many…[Read more]

  • Rowena replied to the topic Skirt or Trousers? in the forum General Chat 2 months ago

    I think its a personal preference.

    You don’t have to wear heels with anything. But for me, I think they look better with a skirt. But I won’t wear anything over 3 inches anymore.
    Once upon a time. Going way back. Heel size wasn’t an issue. But now I prefer comfort.

    But I like my winter boots to be flat. I got a couple of pairs of sandals for…[Read more]

  • Rowena replied to the topic Do You Clean? in the forum General Chat 2 months, 1 week ago

    Nothing wrong with being houseproud.

    I give the place a quick once over every day but a big clean, Generally on a Friday or Saturday. Depends on what I’m doing.

    The washing I do every other day. Ironing as little as possible. I cannot stand ironing lol.

    I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed but I do like a nice clean house. I have seen some houses on…[Read more]

    I personally have no problem with anyone and or what they are. gay/trans or whatever. Neither does my friend as far as I know when it’s a platonic basis. Its really she’s just not a lesbian and not interested in anything like that. Shes is as far as I know completely heterosexual. Its really just she doesn’t want to lose the friendship but at…[Read more]

  • That’s very sound advise Cassandra Thank you.

    I am also a very affectionate person by nature. I hope no one ever gets the wrong signs off of me. But most of my friends are too. we are just like that I guess it’s in our genes to show more empathy.

    I will tell her should the time arise that it seems to be steered to more than just a friendly hug…[Read more]

  • A close friend of mine asked me this and I must admit I do not really have any idea on what advice to give. I have never been there.

    let me give you some background first.

    She’s about the same age as me but single.

    She met a woman maybe a few months ago. Just as a potential new friend and they got along very well. Laughed about things and…[Read more]

  • I have a love affair with makeup and have worn it almost every day since the very first time I used it. Yes, I am a woman who will not even put the bins out without at least some on. This has got to go on my list of ways I enhance my looks. Its always quality makeup too. I found it just works better. I have a few wrinkles. That’s even thou I used…[Read more]
