Welcome to 'Tellin's from Helen.'
My name is Helen.
And I'll be doing the telling.
Pleased to meet you.
I will be blogging about my life and my adventures, the ups and the downs, and hoping that you will be interested and, hopefully, entertained.
If you like you can check out something about me here on my old friend, Clippy Mat's blog.
I have a husband and right hand man.
I have children.
I have a granddaughter.
I have a very interesting mother.
I had a stroke, four years ago, the year I turned 50.
These days I work hard on my recovery and my life has changed in oh so many ways. (As the Beatles said.)
According to my friends, I have an acerbic wit.
I find humour in lots of things.
I struggle with many things which a lot of people may take for granted but I try very hard to not let it get me down.
I have a lot of things I want to say.
It's hard to get it all down because since the stroke I have to type with one hand.
This from a former secretary and administrator who has typed more bumf than many people have had hot dinners.
I email my friend Clippy/Ruby, and the rest of the f.o.t.h.s. a lot.
She will put up my thoughts and musings on this blog for me.
The writing is all mine.
She's just what I like to call, "My Admin. Assistant."
The picture at the top is me flying in a micro-light plane.
That was one of the things I used to love to do.
I hope you will come back often and read about me and my life, loves and laughs and my road home to recovery.
Thanks for stopping by.
