Hello there

Welcome to my blog. I blog about my community, my passion, work, food, travel. I hope you enjoy the posts. Let me know if you do.

Billy no mates

I visit my friend Carol most weekends not just because it is peaceful and chilled out but also because like a lot of long-term residents, I find myself bereft of true friends suddenly. I do have a couple of business associates that could be termed "friends" but among the friends that have seen me go through my ups and downs, shared drunken bouts and the resulting fauz pas – there's only Carol left. The others have moved on and bar the occasional email, chat on MSN, I have become Billy no mates.

At my age, however, I am quite happy with my own company. I used to be a party animal but these days I would eschew some of the best parties to curl up in front of the TV or read a book.

Mmmmm – lovely!

Isn’t hospitality all about service?

The two best decisions I ever made
