hope to make some friends

Hi my name is Pamela and I am new to this site, at the moment I live in Wiltshire near Chippenham but am still hoping to one day go back home to South Somerset where I was born, I retired some time ago and although in my later years still feel very young at heart. I love nature, the coast & Tai Chi, would love to hear from anyone for a chat.

      Hi Pamela. Welcome and lovely to see you here. I’m Brigitte and just up the M4 in Swindon but hoping to move to Penzance in a few years time. I’ve not long joined this site and really enjoying it. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. x

        Oh Penzance how great for you. I lived in Plymouth and my Dad was Devonshire, all a bit different to Swindon. I moved to Wootton Bassett from back home and have to say it was the worst thing I ever did as I have never been happy in Wiltshire, I miss the coast more than anything. xx

          I bet you do. I need my seaside fix every few months. I’m off to Penzance on my own for a couple of days tomorrow. I’ve made friends through Instagram down there and will meet up with them. It feels like my second home when I’m there. I have to admit that I’ve never considered Swindon as home. I originally come from Bristol.

        Hi Leigh Nice to hear from you, I am having problems signing in, it says I need to put my full e mail address which I do then says its wrong so I try and set up again and it says I have an account. I have gone through the process of saying I have forgotten my password/email but don’t get a reply back so not sure what is going on. ??

      Hi Pamela, and welcome from North Dorset.

      • Sunset 25th October 2021 at 9:07 am

        Hi Thank you for the welcome, lovely to hear from you. Dorset is a beautiful County, I have spent many happy hours around Swanage, Weymouth, West Bay etc and love the Dorset coast.

      Hi Pamela, I’ve found Rest Less to be a breath of fresh air compared to Facebook etc. I know what you mean about the coast – originally from Portsmouth, I miss the sea still, having lived in Berks/N.E. Hants for many years. I was working in Corsham for the last 6 years until I retired but don’t know the area too well having commuted in and out to Chippenham (although I got to know the Chippenham taxi drivers well!).
      Hope you like it here in Rest Lest world.

        Hi Neil Nice to hear from you, I lived in Gosport for a few years with my late Husband who was in the Navy, loved it down there, then went back home to Crewkerne with my 3 year old and bad mistake moved to Wiltshire when she was eleven for the sake of a good job offer. Am loving being on this site.

      Hi Pamela. I used to live in North Swindon, Oakhurst. Moved to Somerset two years ago. Don’t regret it one bit.

      • Sunset 25th October 2021 at 8:58 am

        Hi I bet you don’t regret it as Swindon is not the place it used to be, I am desperate to go back home to Somerset but am having Immunotherapy for Cancer & may not be able to get my treatment back there so feel pretty stuck at the moment.

        • Staying Alive 25th October 2021 at 3:05 pm

          Hi yes Swindon was beginning to go down hill when we moved out.
          I very sorry to hear that you have Cancer and are waiting for treatment I hope all goes well for you.
          I know that the health service in Somerset is Pretty good.

        • Sunset 25th October 2021 at 3:35 pm

          Yes it is much better than the service here that’s for sure.

      Thank you Gloria nice to hear from you.

    • Dianna 26th October 2021 at 11:02 pm

      Hi Pamela….and welcome from South Devon 😊

    • Sunset 27th October 2021 at 9:22 am

      Hi Dianna Thank you for your message, South Devon wonderful, you have made me feel homesick, I was born on the Somerset Devon border & my Dad was from Crediton, I lived in Plymouth for quite a long time & my Parents gad a summer place @ Ladram Bay. I get so home sick as I don’t like Wiltshire at all and of course miss the coast like mad. Nice to hear from you. 😀
