Hi, my name is Delbasid!

Have been disabled for 22 years. Was divorced 2018, now live on my own. Most of my time is taken with voluntary work, I reckon loneness is a real issue.

    Hi @Delbasid - Welcome to the community. I'm going through a divorce at the moment, & live alone (unless you count my kitten)! Well the DWP did, as I received a letter saying I would only get half my winter fuel payment, as there was somebody else living here....how did they know about Shadow?
    It's great to read you do a lot of voluntary work. Is loneliness something that affects you, or those you help? Many here will identify if the former.
    Just to say I've found this a very friendly, caring & supportive place, with different people to chat too.
    Please say if you have any queries.

    Hi there,
    with a name like shadow I’m sure he can keep a low profile. I reckon my problem is I really don’t socialise much any more.

    Hello @Delbasid      Thank you for reply. If you go the page this one has a guide community one tells you about how to post.

    Our rules, guide lines.

    I am called the Recipe King, Italian Stallion of the Kitchen by some of the members.

    Always have lots of recipes on the forum have a look, happy to share and care.

    I never use Mince Chilli childhood. Use cubed Beef or Pork Shoulder or these ready made Meatballs Turkey Beef, or the Swedish one s that are cooked.

    Slow cooker use mixed beans tins, not Kidney. Use Couscous not Rice or use Quinoa. Or my one of my comforts . Mashed Potatoes or top on Baked Potatoes.

    Buy these ready made microwave . Top with Chilli when cooked.

    Always serve in a bowl topped with cheese like melting ones Mozzarella  or Gruyere.   You can buy already grated.

    Just some ideas for you.

    Please if I can help with any thing be a pleasure to help you.

    A lots of ideas, cheap eats budget ones.

    Please take care.

    Hi @Delbasid - I see you've met my friend thespiceman. He's the gentleman of the forum (usually!).

I'll give you a quick link to the 'Coffee Lounge:' https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/coffee-lounge where we share our interests & hobbies + much more, including the spiceman's recipes; some more of which are here: https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/coffee-lounge/p2

    Hi @Delbasid and welcome to the Community.  How are you today?  It is nice to meet you and thank you for sharing with us.  What kind of voluntary word do you do?  Do you have any hobbies you enjoy doing?  Yes, loneliness can be awful and affects so many people today which is such a shame.  You will find the forum to be a great place for chat, support and friendship as there are lots of lovely people on here.  I hope you enjoy your time with us and look forward to seeing you around.  If there is anything we can help/support you with then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smile:
