New here, just introducing myself

Hi all! I've just discovered MyLot, so thought I would start by introducing myself. I'm a writer and independent publisher, and also a Christian minister, and work part time as the Funding Manager of a charity that supports people with mental illness. I live in a country town in Victoria, Australia. I have two adult sons and five grandchildren, but unfortunately my older son and his family live outside of Sydney (around 1000 kms away) and my younger son and his family live outside of Brisbane (around 2000 kms away) so I don't get to see them very often. Outside of ministry, business and work I love reading, knitting, cross stitch, and all kinds of crafty things. I'm trying to turn my brown thumbs into green fingers, and I'm just slightly addicted to building web sites. Currently on a get-fit-lose-weight kick, I've recently returned to swimming. I'd love to learn about some of the other people here.

Hi, nice to have you join us. You've started off exactly the right way by telling us about yourself, so many newbies just say they're new and that's all. I hope you enjoy it here. The best way to get to know people is to read what they write, but briefly I am an Englishwoman in my 70s who hadn't touched a computer until 5 years ago.
@Bluedoll I love the world that they open up, but I hate the degree to which that makes us dependent upon technology. I also hate my current computer, which is less than a year old but an absolute piece of junk that keeps freezing, usually at a time when I want to get some work done in a hurry. I've checked for viruses, that's not the problem.

Hi Lyn! Welcome to mylot. You seem to be preoccupied and that is great. My parents are always preoccupied as well. It keeps them alive and active. I am also new here. Been here for 2 weeks I guess. I like tutoring kids, write, read and travel.
Welcome to Mylot Lynn. I'm not sure i'l remember all the details in your discussion about you. I interact with a lot of people here in mylot and I remember the people easily after having interacted with them for a long time. I hope that I'll be able to see you around not only in your own discussion, but in others as well. Have a great day and hope you'll like mylot as much as I do.

That's so cool to know a writer here I hope you will like Mylot as many people are friendly here. You will find several active Australian Mylotters here, too. My mom is good at knitting and cross stitch but unfortunately I don't have her talents. Her cross stitch is like masterpiece
