About lisasretro

I'm a 41 year old teacher, single and have one adult son. I'm currently finding a new me and new style of living while learning to manage chronic illness. In short, my mind is over active and my body can't keep up. I love art, retro and vintage stuff, eclectic fashion and travelling anywhere and everywhere. I often also get all caught up in social justice issues, my fave being marriage equality, until it happens here in Aus. Bucket list enabled, hold on tight.

  1. Hi Lisa

    Thanks for the follow. Wanted to leave a comment for you, and as this is one of my favourite words it seemed appropriate – am always accusing my son of blethering! (I live in the Midlands/North of England)

    Your positivity is inspiring. Keep posting, and smiling!

    • Hi Al, thanks for the comment. This word was unknown to me until the day I posted this. The Scottish expert on Antiques Roadtrip, Anita Manning, introduced it to me and I just love the word!
