I didn't realize you lived in those parts! I've spent several months in Forres at the ages of 10 to 12, and I still miss Scotland. I remember taking the train to Aberdeen to get to my final destination. Ooooh, I'm so emotional now :)
Scotland is amazing. I live in Edinburgh, and getting to know Aberdeen and Dundee from D. He lives just north of A on the coast - just fantastic.
Is he coming to see you too?
Right now that's planned for a few weeks' time when he's back from this upcoming trip. Flat is still a mess and hard enough for me to negotiate, I intend to spend the time he's away getting it sorted
That's a Job I don't envy. Good luck
Me neither! Thanks - may need it!
How are you? 😊
When is your next date? I love this story. It's nearly as good as black mirror
taking exams. Won't be back home til early morning probably and work tomorrow - ugh.
miles through streets and neighbourhoods I once knew well. Anxious about training as it is all day, and I know no one, so think I about horror of breaks and lunch, when you're supposed to 'network'. Ugh. Then back to E tonight, so long day...
London stinks (literally smells horrible). Hope you got home ok.
Oh I hope your day went well! Sounds like its gonna be tiresome. And I hope London was ok since there is a big football game tonight :/
Good result Esther!
That's fabulous. :)
Cheering for you - you deserve this
So happy for you!!
forward to working week....
Thanks so much, dear Pandas - I was telling him about MP this weekend and how much it means to me to be part of something so special. Lots of love to you allxxx
Good to hear its going well with D! Hope the work well goes ok
Glad you had such a nice time and that things are going well! ❤️
I want to reply to your lovely message on my page but i cant work out how. Thank you it really helped <3
that is my flat now that all my stuff is here.
AND there is plenty of chemistry and attraction. We'll see what happens, but it's a good start. Feeling really lucky and happy, will miss him when I have to leave tomorrow
That's exciting! Happy to see you optimistic, and hope things work out for you!
Yay!! I'm glad you've found someone that makes you happy. May this relationship continue to grow!
Sounds wonderful. You deserve it :)
came up on the train Thursday night after work, going home Sunday morning. Just some quiet time getting to know each other - really having a good time.
That's lovely. Enjoy. Xx
Thanks dear Pandas for your hugs and, dear Jeffbear and Nixibear for your comments. xx
sorted in current flat to try to make some room, keep organising stuff, but very little motivation. Keep trying to get on with things, keep myself distracted, rather than checking email, but not always working. Sigh.
I know how you feel. Though I wasn't even at the date stage yet waiting for a reply that won't come is nerve wrecking. I hope you'll find a distraction soon. 💕
*** date politics why can't it just be easy?
Thanks for the hugs, dear Pandas xx
Thanks, Lydia and John - know I'm not alone but it still feels like it only happens to you. Yeah, I'm 51 and it's no easier...
Good luck with the guy ;)
“Good luck with the boys!” Is what was what my friends & I used to write to each other in our school yearbooks. BF & daughter thought it was hilarious. I'd totally write it in your yearbook, Al! 🥰
My friend... I sit here and wonder how you like to be addressed? Please enlighten me.
Manda - that IS hilarious. So many boys in my life right now...
Shelleybear, my friend, I am fine with anything: Cindy (as many of you knew me first anyway), Al (Manda made me laugh with that).
Just wanted to be proper 😃
I understand - that was very sweet of you (and, therefore, so like you :) )
Have fun on the dates ❤🙏
to keep in touch in meantime. Also having really interesting email exchange with someone else whom I haven't met yet but definitely thinking I'd like to. And 2 nights out this coming week with friends. WTF? :)
Good for you for getting out there and getting excited! Happy to see you so positive! :)
of people on this website, so still trying:)
I hope you get the saga published before it go into the annals of history as a cultural and literary milestone.
Big hugs x sorry to hear your having a hard time with work too! I hope things improve they should see they are lucky to have you! 😔
BIG HUGS MY DEAR FRIEND XXX
website - gotta get back on that horse :)
Hope it goes well.
Ah damn. Hopefully the next one will be more of a match!
If it's not there then it can't be forced. The right one will come along and you will know it. Still keep the faith and never give up. If I've learnt anything in life then it's that dreams can come true if you keep the faith.
