Grans alone and lonely, including those who may not even post here , we will think about each other as we watch Carols at Kings this evening at 5PM on BBC 2 television, and greet each other in our kind thoughts .

Carols at Kings? No thanks! It's bad enough that the local cricket club is blasting out Christmas songs through loudspeakers! Noise pollution, I call it!

You can be lonely in a group or a crowd too

What a lovely thought!

A lovely thought, Iโ€™m alone tonight and really feeling the loss of DH, this is my second Christmas without him, for some reason Iโ€™m feeling the loss much more this year maybe I was still too numb last year. We would spend tonight wrapping lots of nonsense presents for each other he loved filling up a knitted stocking for me and would find all sorts of useful and silly gifts for me. He was the most kind and special man.

Sorry Iโ€™m feeling maudlin tonight.

Don't be sorry. Be there at five we meet in spirit.

Sending love to you all at Christmas, particularly those of you who are missing someone.

This is my first Christmas on my own and it's nice to feel that I'm not really alone; so many of you out there, thinking of others.

QuaintIrene Tue 24-Dec-19 17:00:21

I am here. ๐Ÿ’

I very rarely feel lonely, but if I start to, I find something 'useful' to do, whatever time of day or night it is. The dog always appreciates an extra walk.

Christmas wishes and thoughts to all of you. The carols are going on here too. flowers

seacliff Tue 24-Dec-19 17:05:48

I am not alone but feel alone. I am very sorry for those who are missing a loved one, especially if it is the first year alone for you. I can only say what you already know, how lucky you were to experience all those loving years together. Treasure the memories.

I have poured myself a Baileys and am just putting on the TV to watch with you all. Cheers xx

Thinking of you all, Carols are on at the moment x

Thanks for the lovely considerate post Alexa

I'm counting my blessings here. Yes I now live alone with DH in his Care Home, but I've been to see him today and tomorrow morning he is coming here, the first time we have tried this, to get his presents with the Grandbairns and (hopefully, without protest) returning to the Care Home for Christmas Lunch with ALL the trimmings.

Thinking of you all, quiet Christmas this year for us too, for lots of reasons. I'm watching My Fair Lady, lovely film. Wishing you all a peaceful 2020.
