Introducing ‘Natterbox’: Hello Digamites all!
If like us, you are ‘migratory birds’ who live in Spain only part of the year and may not be out at the same time as people you know, you may be interested in an idea I have.
I think It can be quite hard to meet people outside the boundaries of a formal club or shared interest, and have been thinking how nice it would be to develop a group of like-minded people who enjoy having ‘a good old natter’…. also known as enjoying the art of conversation! It would be an informal friendship group, with no regular meetings or fixed topics. … a kind of ‘short-cut to getting to know people. The idea would be that, say you have just arrived back, you could contact people to see who is around and wants to meet for a coffee or a copa simply to have that ‘good old natter’.
Ideally I would like to get those who express interest together to talk about things in a bit more detail, but I have no idea how many (if any!) of you are likely to be interested. So at this stage I propose that you get in touch with me by email, saying where you live, and I’ll take it from there. I am in Nerja.
Looking forward to hearing from potential fellow Natterboxers!
