Across to Wiltshire via the Gulfstream
« on: May 07, 2002, 10:37:20 AM »
I blame Marlespo for being here. No, not for being here here. But for being here. I looked at her web site and, as any curious person would do at 6am, I clicked on her links button.

Leah, fantastic site!

I hope in the months to come I am able to elevate my status. "Newbie" just doesn't describe me and my greyness.

I will not ramble this time, as I am prone to do. I have a ton of things to do this morning, so here's me in a nutshell (more, I'm sure, will follow):

Married to Graham going on four years; been living in Wiltshire since Jan98; lived in Florida for 20 years before that. And that reported, is still only half my life. My life completely changed after moving here, and for each year it's been a complete change since. I am getting way too old for this upheaval, but I wouldn't change it for the world, either.

Connections like this have played an extremely important role in my "settling in" because I found the isolation very very difficult. Now with more confidence I really do feel a part of this country. It takes a while, but this is now home to me.
Married to Graham, we run our own open-source computer training company in beautiful Wiltshire out of our 1814 Georgian Regency home (a former lodging house and once featured in Antiques Roadshow)

Hi Lisa, welcome, and sorry I didn't get to meet you in chat the other night, but if I have no other problems with our internet connection, I should be there.

I'm glad you like the site, if it's helpful, then it's serving it's purpose.  :)

Feel free to ramble here, I think we're all guilty of that at some point.  ;)

Mua ha ha ha ha.... somebody clicked on my links!

I feel like an Ambassador of Love (a la TMBG).

Make sense? That's okay.

Welcome Lisa!!!

This is such a warm and fuzzy and friendly place here, a lot of us on the other board play here because Leah RULES, the chat RULES, and we're all swell people. Hope you play around here a little more!

ANd thanks for playing on my page, I love it when that happens.  [smiley=blush.gif]
