Margeab Female (70) from Hampshire

Hi, I'm a widow (2 1/2yrs ago) I have 2 sons, both flown the nest and each has 1 child.
I'm a non smoker, and drink a little, but never alone.
I'm retired. For 18yrs I had a small business making bespoke soft furnishings, but decided life is too short to do something I no longer have an interest in. I now do the handicrafts I enjoy.
I love travelling, long or short haul, a trip into the countryside or a walk along a beach. But I don't like the idea of beach or poolside holidays.
I go to the gym regularly, to keep me reasonably fit and supple so I can enjoy the above and an occassional ramble.
I also like the normal stuff, like the theatre, cinema, the local pub or a meal(in or out), an evening keeping the telly company, or just chilling out with the right person/people.
I'm looking for someone between 50 and 60ish, to share life with, a companion to discover all those things out there that are just-------well, waiting to be discovered! but also someone to share a joke with, or a quiet time.
Starting as friends but hopefully developing into something stronger.
