WELL THIS IS IT FOLKS !

I have finally made it to Blogland with the help of my friend, Lesley. I'll link to her blog another day - one step at a time ! I hope you enjoy my blogspeak......
I have been to my first BSL (British Sign Language) lesson tonight. It was very daunting. I can sign my name, ask how you are, say hello and goodbye and say thankyou. If nothing else I'll be polite !!!! Actually can't wait until next week now. It goes on for a whole "school year". I get half terms, xmas and easter hols - shame I have to work as well !! I will keep you updated with my progress - how, I don't know, but I will find a way! We do get a qualification at the end. Cool eh?
I did another first last weekend too. I drove to Exeter from home (174 miles). This may not seem like a big deal to many of my fellow bloggers but the furthest I have driven on my own is 20 odd miles!!!! Get it now ! I have never had to really cos I have some fab friends who drive for me (cos I was not liking the driving much!) and a husband who just drove !!!! The trouble with getting there was I had to come home. I did feel a bit 'icky before I left but it soon disappeared. I stopped twice on the way up and once on the way back - got a bit cocky!!! I must say I did feel a bit proud of meself.
The reason for going to Exeter was to go to a craft show at Westpoint. Spent too much money but got to see Lesley and her hubby, Ed. He cooked Saturday and Sunday - my kinda guy - AND bought me some Green and Blacks chocky ice cream. Ooooh lovely! Me liking chocky ice cream.
Well that's it for my first post. Hope it's okay and I'll be back......................................
