Hi everyone, This section of the forum is a little different to the others, as you may have noticed in looking around the threads. Elsewhere on the forums, we discuss some pretty heavy topics: mental health issues, thoughts of suicide, trauma, abuse, relationship breakdowns. Here is the place to come to get away from that and have a bit of fun. Distraction can be an important tool to draw on if you're finding yourself overwhelmed by distressing thoughts and feelings. As this is a section for respite from difficult topics, we will remove posts made in this section that attempt to discuss personal issues. Please use a support thread in the appropriate section for these discussions. Happy posting!

Hello! one of my favourite word games is where you are given five letters and you need to make a sentence from it, making one word that starts with each letter, in that order. The sentence can be as correct or quirky as you wish, don't worry about grammar! It can be serious, silly or ludicrous. You then leave five letters for another person. These five letters can be a five letter word or just five random letters, anything goes. It often helps not to think about it too much or it starts to get hard! For example: S T A R T somehow the amazon re-forrested tremendously or, G H J K L giant hairy jovial kangaroos laugh or, M F H B E microscopic follicles harmlessly brew elixirs and here is one for you to try.... P A P E R (and then leave a new set of five letters for the next person) Enjoy! Christina

Hi all, I've had a thought - as this is the fun area of the forum, so for those who want something a little different to do, try this. Someone posts a word, then it simply flows on from that. Example: Sun; next person may put "Shine", then next "Bright", then next "Clever", then next "smart", then next "dresser", then the next "fashion", then next "suit", next "tie", "rope", etc etc. I’m having too much fun here by myself. Time to introduce the community into this. So I will simply start with the first word and I deem that word to be Christmas. Let’s see where it goes from there – remember in the tradition of the rules of the site, we need to keep all words in a clean and friendly format. Let’s go people: Christmas

Hello Everyone..... have noticed that a lot of mature aged and elderly people are living alone and overwhelmed by loneliness...I though I would make this thread to give and receive support to each other as well as a place where we could also chat about any thing you want to chat about...so we can all get to know each other...Life’s not as lonely with others to talk to....forum friends can be a big help for us in not feeling so alone... Share some tips, exercise, gardening, favourite meals, recipes, books your reading, hobbies, what you like doing.....pets and their impact they have in your life....anything at all you feel that would help other people struggle with living alone....and loneliness.. I have a volunteer day..one day a week, which gets me outside of my home and into a different atmosphere where I can talk to the other volunteers and sometimes even customers, when I venture into the shop...Do you volunteer yourself somewhere... I have 2 little Maltese x Yorkshire..that are my companions, they help me to get out of bed each morning to care for them....when really all I want to do is stay in bed..... Please feel free to talk about what your interests are or how your traveling right now.. Looking forward to getting to know you... Grandy..
