Bit about me…

Just a few bits of background, as I said on Rick’s post, I have been reading these pages for a while, so get the impression you all ‘know’ each other fairly well, so seems only fair I say a bit.  Not that the bit will be interesting…

I am female, I live in Perth, Western Australia…I was one of the privileged that attended the whole 49 minutes of play on the fourth day of the Ashes match at the WACA the other week….At least that match had the right result..!

I am an ex-Pom, born in Cheshire, however I am now the proud owner of a certificate and passport, that says I’m Australian.  I have lived here for 17 years….and love the place to bits.

I’m also into photography, and having seen some of the excellent photos published on here, I doubt I’ll be putting any on soon.  Actually, not quite true, the fluffy thing in the gravatar is one of mine, I think the first day I got the camera.  I bought the camera 3 years ago, and so in January I’ve booked to go on a course to learn how to use the bloody thing!

Anyway, enough about me.  I’ve read enough to know you are all friendly…and will forgive my lack of techie knowledge, while I find my way around this place for a while.

  1. No worries…Boadicea. I know from reading you are in Brisbane, must be getting late over there. Do you stay around to keep an eye on things?

  2. Hello again Bootsy, I’m so pleased you are a lady, there is far too much testosterone around here sometimes 🙂 …ooops, sorry lads, only joking.
    It’s good to hear you are into photography too, I look forward to seeing some of your shots. You have joined a nice little family here, we share all sorts of techi things with other, not just with the camera, but all manner of things that baffle, there’s always someone that can answer a query.

    I myself am a blonde, and boy do I show it sometimes.

  3. Hiya Val, not sure about the ‘lady’ bit, but definitely female.

    I agree, they do seem a nice family, I’ve laughed many times at some of the remarks and quips. As I’ve never really done this before, I’ll probably keep a bit of a low profile initially.

    I know there are a few from different parts of the world, but wasn’t sure if anyone else from WA, so hopefully I can add bits from my perspective too.

    Is getting late here now, and I have work tomorrow, so will do a Zen, and wish you all good night…

  4. Bootsy, hi and welcome. Please ignore Janus’s comments on RR’s birthday blog. He can’t spell to save himself. I have a strong suspicion that he may have Welsh blood.

    Alfie Bass played Bootsie (sic) in ‘The Army Game’. Possibly interestingly, given your home, Bill Fraser, who played Snudge, came from Perth, Jockland which ia not a bad thing to do, in my opinion.

  5. Welcome, Bootsy!

    Perth is a great place, although I’m talking 1986 so I’ve no idea what it’s like now.

    I spent six months there, but much of that time was spent at Monkey Mia. I remember trailing around a deserted Shark Bay golf course one day, caddying for my boyfriend, and resenting the experience because it interfered with quality dolphin time. I was a bit of a brat on that day, to be honest, but there again the boyfriend had really rubbish priorities!

    Good to see you here. 🙂

  6. Excuse me amo, Bootsy! Look ‘ere, JM! “I have a strong suspicion that he may have Welsh blood.” I have checked the archives and found that the only Welsh gene crept into the Janus pool when Auntie Hilda went west to find the fabled “Bill’s Mum’s” and ended up married to Bill. OK, back to the thread now….. 🙂

  7. No, Janus and JM, please feel free, carry on…I’m learning lots, not only about characters in some (I imagine) radio programme, but also Janus’ wayward ancestry..! I’d do a smiley thing, but I’m not that far advanced yet.. 🙂

    Lol, thanks whoever put the smiley in for me..

    Apologies, Janus. It was the use of a ‘y’ instead of the vowels ‘i’ and’ ‘e’ that sent me down
    the road to the Severn. Plus the fact that you live in a flat land like the Western p-Celts.

    Now that I think about it, you would probably have spelt it ‘Bwtsy’ if you really had been Walesian. Smiley thing.
