    Hi,
    I'm 57, female from Kent.
    I enjoy reading, music, walking, photography, computing.
    I've not travelled a lot - Kenya, Italy, France, Florida (not Disney world!)
    Love the south coast of England; Hampshire, Dorset, Cornwall and west cost of Scotland.
    Worked in Education since leaving college and been a member of the same church for about 30 years... seen a few changes in both worlds!
    I'm sure people don't really want to read a lot about me, so I hope I'll get to know a few ppl a little over coming weeks.
    See you around!

    Hi there,
    I'm on site for the first time today having been newly diagnosed.
    May I ask you a silly question ...?
    Have you lost weight because of the diabetes (if so, why does this happen?) or is it because you are now eating differently - or is it both?
    Hope you don't mind me asking....
    Thanks

    So what? :wacky: Maybe he doesn't like the union jack being on his own flag. It's a silly question anyway. My favourite flag is the California state flag and I'm Canadian.

    Hi guys :)

    I'm fine with the Australian flag, no issues there, and no, I don't mind the union jack as that's part of our heritage. I'm married to an American and have loved their starts and stripes since I was a kid :) Since I'm moving there early next year, it will (in time) become my flag.

    No worries :)

    Have I camped ?? Oui, oui. Always come home with bronchitis & mosquito bites !!
    I love too read. Anything that grips, not a book snob.
    I love too swim but, haven't for a while.
    I love too travel but, haven't for a while
    I cook. Like arts & crafts
    I like owls
    I can get angry, when I'm used like a doormat or lied too
