No one can do it alone.

I can hardly believe it will be two weeks tomorrow since my first and last blog! I had ideas about writing every day but my life seems to have gotten in the way of that!lol

Sorry about the last post some of you may have received, it didn't have anything in it so don't worry if you couldn't open it, just me trying to find my way around here : )

I feel like I have taken the steep learning curve into the radio announcer world! A mere five weeks ago it was my secret heart's desire and in the last week I have been "on air" three times, the last with my own programme!!! It is almost unbelievable!

Now I find myself with a regular time slot on Thursday mornings and it is awesome, a little scary but mostly a lot of fun.

A few years ago I would never attempted to do anything I knew so little about. I would have believed I was too stupid to manage it, not good enough, dreaming.....

Now I find at the prime of my life at 52, I know I am an intelligent woman, more than capable of doing whatever it takes and doing it well!! How far have I travelled to arrive here! Some of the ride has been quite bumpy but I obviously needed that to grow me up and find my way to here!

I have so much to be thankful for.

Without my dearest friend Maureen I would never have made it. Not to where I am today anyway. She has stuck with me through all my ups and downs, unwise and some downright foolish choices, all the business of a normal life and she has believed in me and encouraged me to be ME, the best ME I can be, loving me and forgiving me and gently guiding me and giving me the proactive positive attitude I can call my own today.

I hope and pray every one of you has such a dear and faithful friend as I have had for over twenty years now.
Friends really can make all the difference.

God bless all my friends, each one of you is special and you all make a difference to my life. Thankyou :)

lots of love

Lynn's Life, part one of many, welcome : )

Welcome to my first blog. I wasn't even aware of what a "blog" was until recently! It sounds like fun and we'll just have to see what happens.

I have been thinking about starting a blog since my good friend Shell started hers. I love to write. I guess this is as good a place as any to start! I am sitting here waiting for new guests and thinking about the inevitability of them arriving just as we are ready to sit down together and eat dinner. It happens now and then, and the girls are adept at taking their meals into the lounge and closing the door and making things look like we aren't in the middle of dinner. Wouldn't want the guests to feel they were interrupting! That wouldn't be my idea of "hospitality"!

I like my guests to feel they have arrived at the perfect time, to feel welcome and to be allowed to settle in without feeling they are a nuisance. I like to chat over a cuppa with them if they seem interested, and leave them in peace if they are obviously exhausted from their journey or endless sightseeing. I let them set the pace.

Well, I'd better go get that dinner on now, and not be surprised when the doorbell rings when it's all ready. I guess that's what true "hospitality" is all about, having that welcoming smile and warm room ready with the kettle on even if you are hungry or were about to do something else.

lots of love
