Hi my first time here hello everyone. I hope you let me join this group, I've been looking for a group to join for a while.  My name is Yvonne but the computer said no so it was already being used. Look forward to a chat.

    Hi I'm new just got a message which was very nice as only posted once.  I'm Yvonne, and glad to be here. In the past it's taken me a while to be confident enough to join in then you can't keep me quiet.
