Once upon a time...

KME82 Member Posts: 4 Listener
... in a small seaside town in the northeast of England, there lived a lady and her handsome(ish) Prince. Her name was KME82 and she wanted to meet like minded people from all over the world and hopefully make some friends.
Her children were the joy in her life and were what enabled her to sing happy songs and whistle while she worked. All 4 children had to fight more than their fair share of battles with the evil health goblins but KME82 was always prepared to go into battle alongside them to help them try to live happily ever after.
Because life isn't a Disney story but more like a Scorcese directed horror drama flick, KME82 was also cursed by the malevolent fibromyalgia fairy with additional evil incantations from the cfs gremlins which meant that she spends her days locked in her ivory tower (well, slightly grubby terrace) socially and emotionally isolated.
Then one day a little (blue)bird told her of a place where  people could all get together and share their  own stories and maybe even support each other in fighting the all to regular battle scenes. So she came to that place and wrote a silly tale to introduce herself in hope that people might say hello and begin a new story...
