I did get an invitation to a wedding in September 30th (soon after my birthday!) When I think right now that the wedding is in five months time, I get the feeling, five months is a long time. But once we get real close to the date, I’ll probably think, that the time passed too quickly! 🙂 Anyhow, I have now about five months to look for a formal dress or cocktail dress, and some good shoes as well! 🙂
What’s so good of being on yout own most of the time? A few hours all by yourself, can sometimes feel like an eternity. But when you spend just as many hours in good company, then it feels like the time passes very quickly. 🙂
I often mentioned my neighbours, for naturally since they live so close to me, I see and talk to them more often than this is…

I can relate to this, Uta. I do hope you can find a lovely outfit for the day and that you’ll enjoy it. I saw this recently and thought of you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fFaC9bwXbc. This is one way to organise your home so you can share it with others but keep your own private “quarters” at the same time. Hugs.
Thank you so much for the link, dear Cat! This lady, who made the tape, is a really smart woman with great taste. I love the way she took to decorating everything in her very small space. What a good idea to downsize like this and live in that very small space with everything that you do need! A single old person does not need to live in a large house, right? I very much agree with this.
Compared to the size of her whole house, my three bedroom cottage is probably much smaller than her house. But I still did a lot of downsizing already. For instance, I vacated the master bedroom for good. It is just a guest bedroom now! 🙂
I still don’t like it, that other than when when my son comes to visit to stay with me for a few days. no male person ever stays with me for any legth of time. No female person either, for that matter. So it makes continuously for desperately lonely evenings.
I made a comment about loneliness in the comment section of this page:
I have the feeling, that actually my life is not worth living anymore. The sooner its over, the better for me. The joy I get from doing things during the day, looking after myself and always having some contact with other people, this joy does not help me in overcoming bouts of desperate loneliness once the day is over. Who enjoys living like this? I don’t. I very much do not like living like this. So, not having to live much longer would be a real blessing.
I do need some real contact with someone I feel close to. It seems to me, this is the thing that I cannot have any more. Any internet contact in the long run cannot make up for the missing face to face contact. And this is the very sad truth.
Thank you so much for being a good friend, dear Cat. I always love to hear from you!
Have a great weekend!
HUGS from your blogger friend Uta
I’m so happy about the wedding! 🙂
I’m so so so sad to hear about your desperate loneliness. 😦 This makes me cry.
I wish for you some people to enter your life who you could trust to spend time with face to face, enjoy time with, that might ease the loneliness.
I want you to know I care about you. I appreciate you. I’ve so enjoyed reading your blogs and Peter’s blogs over the years. You brought joy, wisdom, beauty, and smiles into my life. ❤️
What could I do to be of help to you?
I know phone calls are not face to face…but if you want a phone-friend, please let me know.
Dear Carolyn, thank you so much for all your caring, and for remembering Peter’s and my blogs. Looking at old blogs always brings back memories for me. It is good, that I have all these memories. 🙂
Feeling lonely at nighttime can be very painful. But I always know, all this pain will be gone in the morning. My days are always full of activities, including seeing people. It is the lonely nightimes, that are the problem. I think I just have to put up with this. 🙂
It was very different when I was married. I realise, that I am going to be a very elderly, lonely widow for the rest of my life. But this is the fate of a lot of widows, since most often women outlive their men. I was severely age affected long before Peter. So why didn’t I die before Peter? This is what baffles me. There are so many things Peter and I shared during our long marriage. All these memories usually lessen the severity of my depression. 🙂
Carolyn, I just gave you my email address. If you give me your email address, I can write to you a bit more about Peter. I think to talk to you via emails I prefer to talking on the phone. But thanks for the offer, dear Carolyn. 🙂
