Hi Poshy

I see you have made a few posts already so you seem to be finding your way about already which is good.
That just leaves me to say welcome to BE and good luck in your new home.

yeah I kind of jumped in feet first forgetting my manners and had my first post deleted for hawking my wares......which I wasn't of course, only time I ever cut hair was when I pinned my pal down and cut off her pony tail.

Thanks for the Welcomes and finding it good, obviously very different to the UK, have had 4 visits here over the last year or so each time for a good few weeks, arrived permanently 1st Sept.

Got my car last week so am just finding my way around with that, learning that you have to put your foot down and get out in the faster lanes with the big boys to survive.

The School run was tough this morning without my Husband here to share the load, one of my Sons is difficult to get going in a morning but I got them there with plenty of time.

Got home, have walked the dog and had breakfast and I have found myself a bit of Voluntary work so off there for a while....

Oh and nice not stepping in dog shit and tip toeing around spit globules and chewing gum.


Climate playing havoc with my fascinating skin disease....
