Thank You Barbie and thank you Michael for your concern!

I'm deeply flattered and somewhat embarrassed.

I have relocated to Great Yarmouth to make a fresh start, I'm extremely frustrated that after all this time when everyone is talking about it I'm relying on Mobile data and busy trying to find a job.

I suppose I'll have to rely on members stepping up and using emails to TD's and media to get the message out there ?

Never actually being a leader apart from leading by example; I feel like I'm letting you all down at the moment.

I'm comfortable in the caravan, The pitch fees are very affordable £150 a month plus electric at 16p a unit .

I have food and tobacco, access to a shower block ,albeit unheated.

Ive driven about 900 miles in the last 3 weeks doorstepping prospective employers and leaving a CV.

You can follow some of my progress on the twitter feed or find me on facebook and check on me there?

It has been an honour to do the little I can to keep you informed and try and help get you the peace you deserve!

As most of you know I'm not an Industrial School Survivor but was married to one (which is how I got involved in this).

I am frankly overwhelmed by your individual Strength and Determination to live full lives!

You put non Survivors to shame!

The paypal button goes into an account that is solely used to fund the hosting of the website.

If any of you live near Great Yarmouth and want to meet?

Let me know?

If you know of a Job here that would be good too!

I am determine to take control of my own destiny and am living the adventure that is my life!

Personally I am happier than I have been for a long time! I do regret that I can't focus on doing more here!

You have made the website what it is!

I'm so glad that I have been able to facilitate you coming together and supporting each other!

Wish me well and I'll do my best to put some update that I've missed over the last few days soon!
