  • It perhaps does depend quite a bit on where you are for what opportunities there are. Although I was (and still are not) sure what direction my work career may take I was always pretty sure what subject(s) were my favourite. That being so, when I was at a loose end (so to speak) in my thirties I went back to college for higher qualifications. I…[Read more]

  • Yes sometimes it gets me down, always seeming to be chasing around picking things up and tidying. I think it better if the TV were never invented lol.

    I remined myself a couple of days ago as our art group Christmas Dinner is due in around a month. We have a secret Santa in which we draw names then make a personalised Christmas card for who we choose. I have made a start in getting a plan together with a few reference photos. Your photo calendar is a brilliant idea Cassandra. I am not sure about…[Read more]

  • It works to some extent, but with his things, threatening to tidy them up myself. That worked with the children too. Teens especially don’t like their private things sorting.

  • Hello, nice to meet you!

    There are some women more your age here, but do not assume that when children come along things are rosy and one is never lonely again. What happens when they fly the nest? Just join in our discussions. You may well meet someone your age who likes to talk, but the group is friendly and all ages.

  • It sounds like you both need a complete break from this. A holiday would be good. You see the issues, but are afraid of letting go. You need something else to occupy your mind while you do.

  • I am sorry to hear, but agree. As Test says. you are mourning what could have been, or in other words, as Cassandra implies, thinking ‘what could I have done better to make this work?’. In my mind things worked out for the best.

  • SpinningJen replied to the topic wearing a girdle in the forum General Chat 3 weeks, 4 days ago

    You give good advice Gilliane, but I think you would put me off wearing one. I am a bit of a tomboy at times, bending and stretching as I work around the house and in the garden. I don’t think it would work with me, although I do like to be ladylike when I go into town. Yes, shapewear occasionally, but probably not a girdle.

    I don’t think I have anything specific without knowing much more detail. For me it has really been about working forward on many fronts. Taking control about things rather than being passive.

    I feel we often fall into a routine over the years and before we realise it life becomes drab and uninteresting. In my opinion you need to boost your confidence by exploring new ideas (not necessarily sexual). Keeping your mind exercised helps the body. A little bit of physical exercise can help too in making you feel better. Everyone is…[Read more]

      Thanks for the advice have started to exercise so heading in the right direction .I definitely need to boost self esteem any pointers

  • I like your organisation Cassandra. I am always amused by the reports by Facebook that they have very many members. I know several people who have more than one account for various reasons. Having a business is a common one to separate family and business. There are many people who probably like dogs, but would be irritated by pages and pages of…[Read more]

  • I already did complete

  • We are a little between Cassandra and Test’s replies (and the card lol). Yes women are all different. To me it is often those silly little things which are important. These differ between women, but show more feeling than something expensive or trying to impress. I love to get home made gifts.

  • I think that things have not really changed over the ages as many women have always done their utmost to conform to ‘some ideal’. The issue these days is that the pace of life is moving far faster. With communications being as they are, and the ever present advertising, many women (and even males) are being pushed forward on a wave. I grew up…[Read more]

  • I think it is one of those situations in which almost whatever you do you may lose. Your sister is right in what she says. The first question I would think about is whether he is actually cheating or is the dual relationship openly accepted between them? Is your son close to the other boy such that they may share? What type of girl is she? It’s a…[Read more]

  • SpinningJen replied to the topic Womens mags? in the forum General Chat 1 month ago

    There is really background to this as during the Second World War there was the ‘Make do and mend’ and all the cooking tips. I love to read the old pamflets and there are one or two books about with these compiled. Most of the recipes and tips would not be relevant now, but the idea behind them is interesting and useful. I supose the nearest we…[Read more]

    I do have four that have come along over the years, although none are from my childhood. I don’t know what happened to them all from then but I didn’t really have a favourite. All of mine are dogs: Eric, Fluffball, Snowy and Stretch. Oh I should really mention Noddy and Rover in the car too lol.

    If you have one, what is your teddy bear’s name?

     

  • An interesting point in your last paragraph Lisaann. I too hate too much noise as well. That is probably why I virtually never watch soaps on the TV as their characters always seem to be in shouting matches these days. If I change over for a program and the end of a soap (especially ‘Eastenders’) is on I have to mute the sound as it ‘does my head…[Read more]

  • SpinningJen replied to the topic Womens mags? in the forum General Chat 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    I am like you Cassandra. I only read them when in waiting rooms, although I do occasionally glance in the shops. A few years ago I decided that it was far better to save the money I would spend on mags, and buy a good book instead. They are not generally full of adverts which are a waste of space.
