The Beginning

Relay – information, a message, an opinion

Shun – ignore, avoid, abstain

Ship – export, direct, drop

The thing is with relationships, they all had to start somewhere. There is always a beginning. Our beginning began with our parents coming together, without them, we just wouldn’t be here. We may not live with our biological parents, but their DNA is part of us, however, does it define us?

Having had my own own children, lived with my own biological parents and looked after many children belonging, biologically to others, the answer is yes and no. Nature -v- Nurture, the debate is ongoing, depending how you look at it no? I am no expert on the matter at all and only speak from my humble opinion on the matter and from my own experience of being a person in a relay shun ship with all those around me.

By the time I came along there were already 2 other before me, my brothers, aged 1 and 2. We were like stepping stones. Three children under 3 and my mother was only 21 and my father was 24, but this is how it was in those days, some 50 odd years ago. Everyone got married young and had their babies young. What stresses and strains would that have had on their relationship, back in the 60’s, two Irish people, living in a strange land, England, married with 3 children? This I will explore as the blog goes on. Enjoy.pexels-photo-269583.jpeg

Daily Life Experiences Blog

This is the post excerpt.

Hi,  just a quick introduction about me and what my site is about.  I am a 50 something woman, a woman in my prime, some would say.  I would say just a woman, getting on with life and learning and discovering along the way.

I like to write.  I write about anything and everything.   It all depends on my mood, on if I feel I have something to say or if something just pops into my head and turns out to be the first line of a new poem.

I like to write about my life, my experiences or my perceptions of things.  I have no distinctive style or agenda, just thoughts, the good, the bad and the ugly and I like to relay them here.  Whether it is a relationship with ourselves, our families, our friends, or the world and planet around us, we all have relationships and we all have an opinion, an observation or an impact in those relationships.

I hope you enjoy this journey with me and I hope you can relate with some of what I have to say or at least that you may get a bit of a giggle sometimes.   I wish you all the best in all your Relay shun ships……. post
