Determined not to be miserable after my son and family went back to California last Friday, I contacted a Ladies Group that have monthly meals out, theatre visits etc, and also a "fun" choir, that I've heard perform, and they are very light hearted. The first rehearsal for the choir is next Sunday, followed by Afternoon Tea, with the Ladies Group, on Monday. And I'm dreading having to say, 2 days running "I'm a widow". I'm sure I'll be asked what made me join both things, and I just hope I don't get too emotional. I had all this when I joined the CAB, and after I'd told a couple of people, it was obviously passed on. But I find it very hard. Any advice would be gratefully accepted.
