    Hello @Tammyjane33   Thanks for this. I am sure they will be in touch to talk to you.

    I am here anytime you want . Always up for a chat and have made a lot of friends.

    Please if you looking for a friend happy to be one.

    Either here or PM myself.  On the messaging service . Speak to a few of the community champions we help, support care and concern have chats about anything.

    Just be great every day gives you a lot of confidence and reassurance.  Something to consider, just a thought.

    I know the role can be stressful sometimes and also some times be emotional.

    Understand if I can offer any support happy to do so.

    Been doing this a long time two years ongoing.

    Hope that helps.

    Please may I add remember to talk to the SCOPE team as well fantastic support, advice and guidance.

    Please take care.

    I have a question that will help people get to know each other. :smiley:

    What is everyone’s favourite car?

    Mine is the Ford Mustang. Either a 1960s one, like in my profile picture, or a modern one! I hope to own one one day.
  • emilyanneemilyanne Member Posts: 37 Courageous
    can't be bothered to talk tonight I'm too tired that why I haven't been online today all day 
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Community Co-Production Group Posts: 4,693 Disability Gamechanger
    Ok I guess people aren’t nerdy and interested in cars like me. :smiley:

    What about hobbies, what is everyone’s favourite hobby? :smile:
  • Chloe_ScopeChloe_Scope Scope Posts: 10,652 Disability Gamechanger
    Morning @66Mustang! My favourite hobbies are reading, writing and crocheting. You?

    I've always wanted to play guitar @DosieDoe, can you play?

    I enjoy reading as well. My main hobby is driving my car around the country lanes. What do you write about? I have been wanting to write a novel one day!

    I did play guitar very briefly but wasn’t very good at it!!
  • emilyanneemilyanne Member Posts: 37 Courageous
    I enjoy sleeping and listening to my music through my earphones and playing on era of celestials game on. My phone 
  • Chloe_ScopeChloe_Scope Scope Posts: 10,652 Disability Gamechanger
    That sounds really relaxing @66Mustang! I write a blog about disability and my own experiences. :)

    A great way to chill out @emilyanne, thank you for sharing!

    @Tammyjane33 Hi there... I'm... not great at this....:/

    Hi @Tammyjane33

    I don't post as much as I would like. I work in a housing association on service charges and section 20s. Trying to get my head around a computer system introduced at work, and currently studying for the IRPM foundation course.

    I am also the Chair of a tenant management organisation. I do the newsletters, posters, satisfaction surveys. In the past, when I had more time, I also organised community activities and events, put together successful funding applications and written the occasional blog post. As well as developing and updating the policies.

    I have a number of interests which have developed around my local voluntary work including the environment we live in, how as communities we can come together to make a difference locally. Local council consultations. Two I have recently responded to have been improved access to toilets in the borough and changes to how they pay for social care.

    I don't really have time for a hobby, though I love what I do and even get paid well for doing it in terms of my job. Which I got as a result of my voluntary work.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hello @66Mustang, What is everyone’s favourite car? mine a Mercedes or a Ford Escort 
    My hobbies are reading, making tags, knitting when my hand allowed. 
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Community Co-Production Group Posts: 4,693 Disability Gamechanger
    Ford Escorts are nice especially the Cosworth models! Which Mercedes do you like or just any Mercedes? Hehe

    Nice hobbies there, I should really get back into reading as it’s fun and good for the brain!!

    I like Mustangs but my lottery win car would be a Lamborghini Aventador as I think they just look ridiculous!
  • AlisonNettyAlisonNetty Member Posts: 138 Pioneering
    @66Mustang Mercedes 1962 the year I was born. love the size of it. I don't like showie cars...

    Hi folks - I'm not a car person...
  • chiariedschiarieds Community Co-Production Group Posts: 8,118 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi, mine's a Porsche, but then I'll settle for books, which I have got,.......as well as my son's books in my spare bedroom!
    I also enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles online. I love playing chess; taught my husband, then he beat me....taught my son from about age 4, then he beat me. So I'm OK about teaching chess, but probably rubbish at playing it!
    When my son was on his honeymoon 3 years ago they visited an antique centre, where he saw this unusual small travel chess set; the pieces being ancient Egyptian gods. He asked what was the best price on it, & was told the dealer who owned it would be in the following day. When they went back the next day, this dealer said if you can beat me in a game of chess, it's yours for nothing. I now have this lovely chess set.

    Hi @Victor I am not into cars either. Do you have a hobby or something in particular you are interested in?

    Hello I am April Talbot. 

    My cared for person was born three years ago. I love reading books etc and meeting new people in town etc. I have also travelled by car in Europe mostly and around the UK by train as well. This year I flew to Florida on a plane (it was a planned layover trip). I love puzzle books too. My other hobbies are sewing and beadwork.
    Also I enjoy knitting things for people. I have two cats. Another thing I love doing in my spare time is editing photos and dancing when I have a moment. I am rather unique. My husband is 12 months older than me. I used to play the recorder as a child. I took lessons and everything. I am interested in tarot reading, palm reading, fortune telling and things like that. Astrology intrigues me. 
    I am adopted. My birth mom left me at the hospital since the pregnancy was unplanned. I was then adopted within two years.
