  1. I will start off myself in this comment section of this post, even though some of what I will say can be found on my blog.

    My name is Elizabeth, but I don’t mind being called Liz and I am from Nottinghamshire in the UK.

    I use to blog for many years at a blog called Liz’s development deaf blog. That blog started on Blogger before I decided coming to WordPress with it. After many years writing, I decided to call it a day and eventually I deleted that blog. This blog was then born.

    My hobbies used to be card making one time, which at one time I did it as self-employment in my spare time. Tje trouble is no one wanted to event pay for these cards and so the time and effort wasn’t worth it. I carried on making for my own pets use until I had no more craft items and gave tools and little bits and bobs away left for a school, who I knew would use them.
    I also like to cross stitch. Just small ones. I don’t do it often, but it’s there should I choose to.
    I once tried something new that I shared here on my blog. I made a felted bird keyring. I really enjoyed making that.
    I have tried crotchet and I like that, but as I was only just getting onto it before stopping, I think I now have forgotten how to do it. I hope to motivate and get back onto it a little.
    Then there is rock painting I tried and liked. I want to get back into that and my dabble back into watercolours, which I not done since last at school. So many years ago.

    I have a tattoo on my left arm. A dolphin, which I have had many years.

  2. Nice to know more about you Liz. My name’s Sheree and I have lived and worked in France for the past 15 years. I’ve been married to my lost suffering husband for over 40 years – we met and married while studying at Loughboro’ University. My passions are sport and cooking. I have a sunny diosition largely, I suspect, because I live somewhere that’s sunny for over 300 days per annum. My blog covers my interests and my travels.

    1. Thank you Sheree for introducing yourself. I love it when I come across people like you that have been in marriage that long.
      Yes, the sunny weather helps my mood too.

  3. My name’s Ashley and I live on the west coast of Canada. My hobbies are blogging and playing with my pet guinea pigs.

    Liz, since you mentioned tattoos, I( have a dolphin on my right hip and a phoenix on the left side of my ribcage.

    1. Hi Ashley and thank you for introducing yourself. I like reading your blog, but as you know, I love seeing your guinea pigs.

      I nearly had another tattoo once, a dove holding a rose in it’s beak. If I had it, it would have gone near my ankle. But never went any further with it.

      The tattoo on your ribcage must have been tender at the time having it done.

  4. We share an interest in card making, though I’ve only done it for personal friends and not for an income. My efforts aren’t good enough to sell, but that doesn’t worry me as I enjoy it.
    I’m older than you at 63 (64 this year), took early retirement at 51, then got stuffed by the government and have to wait until I’m 66 to qualify for a state pension. I’m a good money manager though which is just as well! Married Hubby in 1991, second time for both of us. best thing I ever did. Interests are music, writing poetry and short stories, the dog, and blogging now. Love the challenges which is what most of my posts are, though I set the Three Things Challenge every day and Fibbing Friday fortnightly.

    1. Thank you for introducing yourself. I have to say, don’t knock your cards. They are beautiful to sell. If I made cards again, it would just be personal use. But I have got to where I will buy other people’s handmade cards, or otherwise store brought.

      Yes, I came across someine who was stuffed by government when it came to retiring.


  5. Hi Liz thanks for sharing about yourself.
    I was born in New Zealand, in 1989 I moved to Brisbane Australia to live due to family related issues.
    I worked as a registered nurse for many year. In 2012 my nursing career came to an abrupt end because of my severe scoliosis of my spine.
    I have been married twice, have now been single and living alone since 2008.
    I have four children, nine grandchildren and one great grandchild. Unfortunately I don’t have contact with several of my family, its a sad story but their choice.
    I dabble with arts and crafts such as card making, scrapbooking, writing and learning to draw and paint. Writing and painting are my passions. I have published a book called ‘Love and Romance 21st Century Dating.
    I will be 70 next birthday, am happy and contented with my life.

    1. Hi Ally. Thank you for your introduction. Card making and other crafts are certainly relaxing. I hope to get in mine that bit more than I do, that I have.

  6. I’m Caz & I’m late to the party!
    I think I get further and further behind on reading & commenting. I’m in a little grey and rainy corner of the UK too and I also blog. InvisiblyMe was for invisible illnesses after I had a stoma and developed numerous health issues, and it’s been the one thing I’ve got left that I can hold on to and it’s allowed me to find lots of great bloggers and make new friends, like you!
    PS. I’m happy to swap locations with anyone that’s living somewhere warm and sunny right now! 😉

  7. Hi Liz,
    My name is Cheri, I was born July 16 1967. I started blogging after I had to go No Contact with my mom and her side of the family. My husband and I, plus our kids had to change our phone number, email addresses and change our names on Facebook because of cyber bullying from my mother and her family. Blogging was a way for me to heal and connect with others since I couldn’t be on those other sites. My daughter started me on this site.

    I love sharing fun DIY’s, Arizona adventures and just what it is like living here in my neck of the woods. I have met some wonderful people from all over the world and they will never know how much they helped me get my confidence and happiness back. I always look forward to visits from other bloggers. Hard to keep up with everyone but it is nice being around so many positive posts and people.

    Oh, and I have been blogging for 3 years now. I used to work in retail management and also was a retail buyer (that was fun) but became a stay at home mom when my children were diagnosed with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) they are grown now and doing great, in college working on their degrees. One wants to be a teacher and the other wants a career in science.

    So glad my daughter started me on blogging, it has become a fun hobby for me now.

    1. Hello and welcome and thank you for introducing yourselves and your blog here.
      I have a few friends much older than me that I consider friends with. Age is just a number I think. 🙂
