        Hi Jon,

        Thank you so much for your post.

        I just wanted to make sure that our house rules, https://community.restless.co.uk/community-rules/, are known and that, being a public forum anyway, we never recommend to exchange personal details on a public post.
        We have added the direct messaging function that keeps the communication private so you may want to use that instead.

        Thank you!

      I’m not sure how this site works but I live in North Devon and used to travel a fair bit.

      Hi Woodlandgirl,

      sorry the functionalities of the community are somewhat confusing.

      I could see the other post you have added and maybe you only wanted to send that as direct message to another fellow Member instead?

      Here you can find some basic instructions, hopefully you will find them useful.

      Reply –> it sends your public post to that thread as direct reply to that specific Member’s post
      Like –> Does exactly that
      Direct Message –> it allows you to privately communicate with that specific Member
      Report —> you can report a post/thread to us if you feel it’s abusive or for any other reason
      Edit –> It allows you to change your own posts content
      Add your reply —> It sends your public post to that thread, however as a continuation of the posting chronology rather than a message specific to a Member’s particular post within the thread.

      Please, do let me know if anything is not clear and I will be more than happy to help you.

      I could hardly get dressed after 5weeks l
      had to try and be brave as the children grown up
      we’re so in a bad way also to be honest l just wanted to be with him
      It was hard to get through each day going
      to the sea helped.
