I may have killed my friend's pet.

Babysitting friend's budgie and let it out to have a fly. It hit a wall and fell to the ground beside my dog who promptly scooped him up but dropped him immediately when I yelled at him. I rushed him to an avian vet. The bird is in shock and in "critical" condition. Oh, please help. Vet expenses are going to be $400 and I don't even know if the bird will make it. But I don't care about the money. I care about my friend and my friendship with her. [more inside]

Best friendship options for a middle-aged man - gym, Spanish meetups, Movie meetups or something else?

I have quite a limited social life, partly due to lifelong social anxiety, and would like to try to make more friends locally (I enjoy some online contacts, but friends IRL is my focus at the moment).

For what it's worth, I live in Glasgow (Scotland), I'm male and age 41. I think I could pursue one of the following three options, but not them all. [more inside]
