Living in a different country..........

from my friends and my family, especially my kids, has often been nearly too much for me to bear but I often found that writing a letter to people, even if I didn't send it, made it easier for me to cope with the painful homesickness I was feeling.

That is why I decided to start this blog!!!

Are you ready for this?

Happy New Year

Gosh, what a crazy year 2007 was!!! 2008 is slightly better so far but not by much...lol.
I did manage to relocate back to the UK, I did manage to find somewhere to live despite the flooding leaving the rental market choked with more tenants than houses. I did manage to find part time employment and I am finally finding the time to finish off the 3 stores I started to build before I left the USA. Things didn't turn out exactly as I expected them to but they rarely do anyway. (I should know this at my age :))but it hasn't deflated my enthusiasm or swerved me away from my goals..I just need to work that little bit harder.
One thing that has been a positive for me is the online selling forum I created last April. It now has 154 members and continues to grow, despite my sporadic appearances. It is true that we need more active posters but the most encouraging thing is that we are getting new members weekly from somewhere. There is no doubt in my mind we are getting exposure (the stats confirm this) but we need more if we are to continue to grow. If you are interested in selling online and need some advice, or, if you have already succeeded in your online business and want to share your knowledge with others, then drop by and spend some time getting to know the members on the forum.
It is an easy place to be. Hope you decide to stay! Check out the forum here!

Looking forward to continuing my support of TSSIF in 2008. I couldn;t have made it this far with my business without all the help and resources I have found on the forum.
