I'm going to keep this as short as possible. In the summer of 2020 we moved 350 miles from the south east of England to the north east. We did it for no other reason than we fancied a change of scenery and the opportunity to live on a different part of this magnificent island. Many of our friends are early retirees, like ourselves, and financially secure. What has surprised us is how many of our friends have shown no interest in coming to see us and rarely/never ask us when we might be going back down south in order to meet up for a cuppa/meal. We had a good social life, with people we considered friends but now that we no longer live down south it's as though people are happy to forget that we ever existed. We have asked people to come and stay with us. We have more than enough room. Initially people said that they would but very few have. We are disappointed and confused. We have settled in very well in our new village and have made lots of new friends, but we are slightly hurt that people we thought were our friends show absolutely no interest. Your opinions etc will be appreciated.
