Having finally braved it and joined this community, I would like to introduce myself.
I lost my husband in February 2020 after a long illness and 32 years of marriage and struggled through the various lockdowns and the pandemic in general in the company of my dog, who was a total life saver and kept me sane. Working from home also gave life structure or sorts, but it is a year I would not want to experience again.
Now that conditions appear to be returning to something resembling normality I would really love to get out of the house more and meet people in a similar situation who, like me, are looking for new friends for conversation, meet-ups, shared days out, maybe dog walks,
If there is anybody in the South East Kent area who would like to do the same I would love to hear from you. I drive and can travel a reasonable distance.
Thank you for accepting me into the community and hope you all have a nice evening.
