  • Hi Angiecbr

    I have been avoiding exercise because I get so lethargic and just felt I couldnt do it.

    However yesterday my sons rugby team were doing a sponsored bike ride along the coast and another lady there was going to do the same distance walking so I agreed to go with her thinking I would have to stop etc, however I felt fantastic like my lungs had been open ed up for the first time in ages.

    I will definitely be walking much more often.

  • Wow excellent stuff well done you xxx

  • Hi Margaret xxx

  • I'm from Castleford!

  • I live in Birmingham

  • Where in Brum?, its about 7 miles from me to the airport , twenty minutes by train to New Street. My son works in Birmingham city center and lives over QE hospital side of city.

  • Im under the QE for my alpha, got an appointment there on the 28th of this month. Xx sonia xx

  • I am also a patient at the QE - the rheumatology, endocrinology and lung departments.

  • My daughter goes there for some treatment even though we live in Coventry, my younger son was in Dudley Road when he came back from Iraq war. My late husband went to QE for cancer assessment, we paid a visit to cadbury world too last time for him sadly. But left a fond memory xx

  • I live in Bournville, almost in sight of the QE. I was on your side yesterday - I went to the Education Show with my daughter. Got lots of freebie - if you ever need a glue stick ..

  • Years ago in my young and carefree days I lived at Northfeild overlooking the car factory, I have lived in several areas of Brum till I moved back to Coventry in 1967, my daughter was born in Selly Oak Hospital.

  • My two boys were born in Selly Oak, and my daughter in Sorrento in Moseley - now idea why! If you haven't been back to Northfield/Longbridge recently you won't recognise it. Part of the car factory site has been redeveloped as a shopping centre and has large Sainsburys and Marks and Spencer's, as well as restaurants and smaller shops.

  • Might be worth a visit to see the changes, I've been to Brum in January to meet my sister and shop for wedding outfit, its so busy these days with the new station and all. Guess everywhere is changing just like Coventry, a lot of shopping is outside the cities and towns these days. Selly Oak hospital is much different these days too and Dudley road Hospital.

  • I like the changes that are being made to Birmingham,but find that the people are often rude and impatient! Mind you it's probably like that in any large city, everybody is always in such a rush now a days. I do most of my shopping in Longbridge or Solihull.

  • Our group just had a day at Banbury which is a smaller version of Solihull, you are right all the big cities are rush, rush, rush. My mum used to live in a small market town they did the same with that added all these big chain stores which changes the character and the type of customer that visits. I bought a dish for my ainsley collection in the antique shop.

  • looks like I am not near anyone, such shame really as I. Love getting to know people . It can get pretty lonely on your own all the time.xxx 😒 Bernadette

  • Thats why groups like this are so important Bernadette , you can feel very isolated when your ill even if you have lots of people around x

  • I originally come from Spennymoor in county Durham. It will always be home to me 😊 xxx Bernadette

  • Hi Bernadette, I'm sure there are people near you. There are over 4000 members after all! Just a bit quiet on Sunday πŸ˜ƒ

  • On the home page it says there are 22,460!

  • Haha, shows how long it is since I last looked! πŸ˜‚

  • Long way for me to travel from cairns to UK πŸ˜„

  • I live in a small seaside town Littlehampton west sussex x

  • I lived in Palmer rd 104 down on the corner shadowπŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • After a quick skim through, it seems apparent that no other folks from "the Colonies" are checking in though I know there's a few of us in the group; I'm in the States, Georgia, Atlanta area though not in the city itself.

    Glad there's such interest in everyone getting to know each other a bit better.

  • I live in the middle of the United States (Iowa).

  • Hi, Beth1949,

    I'm in Colorado but was born in West Union, Ia, raised in Cresco, Ia.

  • Hi,

    I am not sure where West Union or Cresco is. My husband and I moved to Des Moines from northern Indiana to be closer to our daughters and their families. I did grow up in Newton Iowa (30 miles from Des Moines), age 6-16. My father worked for Maytag. I have an ex-brother-in-law and nephew that still live there. And my older daughter and her husband got their degrees from UI in Iowa City. My son-in-law grew up in Cedar Falls. So I do have past ties to Iowa.

    I have been thru Colorado, it's such a beautiful state. I had a former co-worker from Colorado and she always said she misses the mountains.


  • West Union and Cresco are Northeast of Des Moines. I'm familiar with all the towns you mentioned. Glad to meet ya!

  • The Northeast, they get a lot worse weather than we do. It seems like we will get 2 in of snow and the Northeast gets 8 in.

    Glad to meet someone else from the states.
