This week has seen a few visits taking place, some choir singing and I have started to write some Christmas cards....!

On Sunday Derek and I drove to Birmingham to meet up with my elder son James and his fiancé, Toni. We went to Miller and Carter for lunch and had a lovely meal. Toni and Derek had steak and James and I had seabass. We all indulged in the desserts too, James and Toni shared a platter of all the choices on the menu in smaller portions, Derek had cheesecake and I had crème brülée.

All very nice, thank you!!

Just the wine to finish now!

Then it was time to do a some 'window' shopping, but inside the all new Harvey Nichols. A shopping experience like no other!

On Wednesday the choir I sing with, Helen Vereker Singers, entertained the Herefordshire Carers Support during their annual Christmas luncheon at The Railway Club, Hereford. Instead of singing Christmas carols, we did a medley of songs including Colour My World, Dancing Queen, This Is The Life, Sloop John B and finished with Hallelujah.

Many of the diners were up on the dance floor and as the following photos show, a good time was had by all!

Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Janice and I am the founder of stands for Optimistic and ProActive Seniors Chat. OAPSchat was born in April 2013 as a Facebook page. To date there are over 1460 FB likes. It was in November 2013 that I decided I had enough material and confidence to launch the website.

Since that day, I have been writing articles on all kinds of topics. ranging from hobbies, holidays, food and drink, memories, families, finance and much much more. I now have over one hundred and thirty seven wonderful contributors to date and articles on all different subjects are posted on a daily basis. Over 1400 articles can be read now!

Raffles are held monthly, sometimes more often. A newsletter goes out once a month with my plans for the coming weeks. I am an Independent Happy List Winner 2014 for founding the website.

Loneliness is a big scourge on our society worldwide and the website helps combat this awful isolation by coming together and sharing our thoughts and ideas. OAPSchat is well and truly born now and I hope it will continue to thrive. With your support, I'm confident it will!
