I live in Armenia where I am a US Peace Corps Volunteer. I speak Hayeren with a Belfast accent because I was brought up in Northern Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s. Then, I couldn’t wait to get away. Now, I like to go back. I spent two decades working in England mostly working with the BBC  in London. The BBC gave me the chance to move to the US in 2000, which is why I now have a blue passport and black kids. I am improvident, overweight and insouciant.  I have a lot of hair,  a lovely dress with a picture of Mount Ararat, and bad knees. I’m pleased to know you.

    Liz, I came across your blog by chance, it is entertaining and very eloquently written, with great use of words and imagery. I realised that I knew you very very many years ago! From Marigold Moment I found your earlier blog The Blarney Crone and was transported back to Saintfield Road where I lived until I was twelve. Your reminiscing about the old church hall, bunnies, brownies and guides brought back such happy memories, I clearly remember you from those times. My mum, Barbara Benson was the guide captain until we moved and then Mrs Shaw took over. I loved my childhood in Northern Ireland but have never been back as we had no family there, I keep in touch with my best friend from those days, Barbara McNeill and my mum kept in touch with many friends, including the McAdams, for many years so snippets of news have come my way of the families I knew as a child, but your blog has reminded me of other things. You have obviously had a wonderful, exciting successful life and I send you very best wishes for your next wonderful venture in Armenia, Shelagh Ford (nee Benson)

      Shelagh, I am sorry I didn’t reply to this before. For some reason it only just popped up on my site. I remember you as the Knight of the Bath at a Brownie fancy dress contest–you were wrapped in towels and carried a back scrub brush (do they sell those any more?) and a loofah. I am sorry you don’t have family in Belfast any more but am glad you are in touch with Barbara–send her my best and see if you can get her reading too. I remember her and Patricia very well. Keep in touch and let me know if you are ever in Armenia 😉 Liz
