Hello!

It was my first completed year on this site yesterday. Being a complete scatterbrain, I forgot to do something when I joined Mylot. So one year later here it is. A brief introduction to me. I was born in Liverpool, England and moved to a small town in Surrey when I was fourteen. To this day I am still a die hard Liverpool FC supporter. I am married with a daughter, a two year old grandson and will be a second time grandma in August. I love travelling, reading, theatre, gardening, walking, music and historical documentaries. I was very naughty at secondary school but for my sins I eventually became a teacher. I left the job to look after my parents. Sadly they are no longer with me. I have a wicked sense of humour which I have to curb on here. I have a milestone date this this year. I've bored you enough, thanks for reading. The photo is of a group of friends and I in a bar in Malta. I'm the little one sitting down.

I know you have a great sense of humour and I know things have not gone quite to plan when you and I have both made comments on various posts. I think some just don't get our sense of humour. Whereas mine is more schoolboyish humour yours is more mature! A nice introduction Gilly. We all know you are still only in your 30's. I am 36. Well according to my facebook page anyway. For my 50th I dropped my age to 40 on facebook. A colleague of mine who is very serious told me off one day and said will you please correct your age on facebook. I said ok and dropped it another 10 years. She is now not talking to me! LOL Who cares! ( I was warned on Facebook if I changed my age again I would not be able to change it back again so I am stuck with being 20 years younger than I really am! ) Told you I was daft! LOL.

Lol! Some folk just don't have a sense of humour. Mine isn't always mature and can involve a toilet sense of humour at times. There are things I wouldn't dare put on here for fear of offending people. I have come out with some little gems when dealing with serious people. Now I'm lol 39 I have learnt to be a bit more sedate. I will grow old disgracefully however. Your age on Facebook is so funny and I can't imagine how someone wouldn't talk to you. Still it's their loss.

@Gillygirl Her not talking to me makes it even funnier! Silly woman! I don't know why she simply cannot accept the fact that I have never grown up and I doubt I ever will....

@garymarsh6 She sure aint no Tinkerbell lol. My mum despaired of me sometimes but she did have some laughs about my antics even when she was in the nursing home. I guess we are both like Peter Pan!

It's nice to read your introduction. I was a student in England (South Yorkshire) and I loved your country. I was off my internet activities for more than one year and just decided to return. So we haven't met officially! Happy one year anniversary in MyLot and happy birthday!!

@Gillygirl I was in Sheffield. I regret that I didn't have the chance to visit Liverpool.

@besweet I've never been to Sheffield but heard there are lovely places in that area. Liverpool is great and the people are so friendly.

No it's a little bar. The pic was taken at the end of the bar. I guess it does look like a cable car but then the seats would be crowded.
