    Hi @Woofy do pop in to the cafe for a virtual cup of tea if you're passing 😊 it's just chat of the sort you'd expect in a cafe including health but usually just bits & bobs of people's days & what they're doing. Pictures help break up the pages so that it's easier to find your place (eg you might remember you read as far as the nice pic of a teapot or a photo of the Taj Mahal or Alice in Wonderland) but also just lovely things to look at. It's a good place for people to post things like their gardens & pets etc as well. No need to read everything people put, of course, mine is usually just trivia 😉 just call in & say hello or whatever. Hope things as well as poss with you at the moment :) ☕️

    I totally agree anyone can pop in for a virtual cuppa.

    the café was set up originally by Valval who sadly died of cancer some years ago now.

    It's for anyone who wants to just chat. Of course there are regulars like myself, Bosh, Skinny Keef and Toady, but really everyone is welcome.

    We just chat drivel mostly - about our gardens (my cat Sleek who apparently can drive, wrap parcels, wash up and travels all over the country!) our families and less about our arthritis. We do talk to each other about that but usually in the manner of friends, supportively. Checking in.

    No-one needs to read every post as Toady said just pop in make a cuppa and say hello☺️

    Anyone else growing webbed feet lately. Fed up of this constant rain. My old bones aren’t liking it either.
