Why can't i be shy? :P
I am shy, but the meds are helping with that lol
Anyway, I'm from Cheshire, Crewe to be precise, at the age of 18 I moved to Tenerife , 2 years later i moved out to Australia, Adelaide.
Been here in North Adelaide since 2001.
I'm shy too and quite old for this forum chat thing! As you are a youngster who probably knows exactly what they are doing - can you give me a few pointers!
I am a mum of 32 yrs with 3 kids and have never used a chatroom before - can you only chat and get replies while online or do they come up in your email messges box or is that only for personal messages? Looks like I may be spending a good few hours on this to get the hang of it!
We have only just applied so won't be there for a good year or so yet......!
Fear not, old fruit, i too am an ancient one (42); and if i can get a handle on this, any old fool can:).
Basically, you get an e-mail to tell you a person ( i am a real person anyway) has responded to your post, or a thread you have posted on(?). You then click on the link, and read the message. Easy.........when a 10 year old tells you how its done:GEEK:
There are several shy people on this site! Like Claire; and me, and the staffords, and cornish busdriver......and so many i would mention but wish to spare their blushes
yep, sure is a lot of shy people on here...and i would never like to be stuck in a lift with most of us!

Reason: cuz i cawnt spell
So that was you in the lift at the myer center :P
I'm not a great mixer myself but have been told will have to get out of that habit to make friends in Oz. I keep chatting and posting on here, hoping that some of you will feel sorry me and take me under your wing when I arrive next year.
Benefit is, you will feel like you already know people, just havent ever seen them!!!
Hey, don't knock it, staffords!!
wash thoroughly, and we might let you get stuck with us;
Once got stuck in a lift with a rather gorgeous morcel; then i realised it was mirrored walls.......................................

me being a smoker spent lots of time trying to find "lepers corner"...up and down the lifts...strange lifts...there i was one day,got in on level 2..pressed 4,usual deathly silence,the 8 people in there starring forward,not saying a word....the lift stopped at 4...it gave out that "ping" noise...the frickin doors didnt open...tried pulling them open...then heard that"clearing the throat" noise,got tap on the shoulder...and theres this bloke,pointing behind me...WHAT???bloody doors opened other end of the way i got in...what sort of bloody lift do you call that????...
...........only a brummy.
Still, if the fags don't kill ya; the embarrasment might!!!!!!
Off for a puff myself.........shocking behaviour from a nurse; and espesh one who is a cross between flo, and a blimp.......
Its hard being shy, i used to be terrible when i was younger, but nursing brought me out of myself. Now i probly say too much and put my foot in it alot (sometimes my brain doesnt catch up to my goband make a prat of meself ). My hubster is much quieter and he said to me the other day thank god you will speak to anyone otherwise we'd never have met people. Its hard but the best way to make friends is to get out and about and meet people, if they invite you somewhere ask them back etc. Its not easy it takes time, we're just forging real friendships now and ive met some really lovely people, both aussie and brits. But they take time, personally id rather have 2 or 3 close friends than dozens of aquantences, but thats my bag baby :)
