Re: What Has Made You Happy/Angry/Sad/Proud/Grateful Today?

For my son's phone call today. Though he is so many miles away i felt closer to him than ever, and the conversation was mutually loving. Free of drugs, a mature version of the boy i once knew. Thought this day would never come. Feel complete. That's truly lovely, Nicky \:)/ <:)> Grateful, everyone'...

Re: The To Do List

Yes, I hope you have a good journey home too, Rachel ;)? Jjjj I think you’d like my central London group. They like dark. They also don’t mind my flights of fantasy - magical realism?! - that I sometimes write (wish I did more. I seem to be writing too much domestic dry humour stuff these days). My ...

Re: The To Do List

As for writing, it’s something I would like to do and a creative writing module was one of my years study. What I hadn’t realised was that it’s actually quite hard work, always assuming it came naturally, that you were either a born writer or not. I am thinking of maybe a Masters in Creative writin...

Re: Regrouping

Thank you jjjj, so excited. My mission now is to somehow get a camper van by June. I’m feeling like I’m too old to do the proper camping. I love camping but in a nice genteel campsite with my massive tent and my little luxuries. Sounds fab, Sleepy! :D I saw this the morning , and Paul McCartney's a...

Re: The First 7 Days

I have always thought a "chat room" would be popular and extremely helpful on this site. I have suggested it a couple of times, probably years ago now, but can remember what the outcome was. Chat rooms were popular about 10 or 15 years ago. From what I can remember it's an open window that shows yo...
