About Jeanie McBain

Hello, I am a retired freelance journalist who has a passion for writing. I am married with three grown up children and three wonderful grandchildren. I am now enjoying life as a senior citizen.

It’s time for the chop

I think it is finally time to have my hair cut short now.  Anyone who know me has seen me with long hair for most of my life.  However, it’s time for it to go.

I will post a picture once it has been done, which will be this week sometime, inbetween other appointments.  Here are some styles I have been looking at.  I wonder which one I will choose.  Oooooh reinvention time. lol

If I don’t look like these models I will want to know why.   LOL

Welcome to my world

Welcome to my world

Hello and welcome to my world.

Since retiring this year I have been trying to keep myself busy.  I was at a loss for a while and continued to stick with my regular hobbies. Although I enjoy them they were not new for me and life began to feel a bit on the mundane side.  Knitting, sewing, trying new recipes and a bit of gardening  were the things to stop me getting bored.  However much I enjoy doing these hobbies, they are not enough for me.

I needed something to challenge me and I thought of creating a You Tube channel.  Of course I knew very little about it and I began to investigate it. This was the side of social media  that I have never thought of trying out, the creative side I mean.   I think you may have guest by now….. I have decided to go ahead with this venture and jump into the world of You Tube.  The channel is more or less set up just waiting for my first entry to be uploaded.  I am not rushing it, but, I hope to have it launched by the end of June this year.

I have plans in place and I am getting plenty of practice in so I hope that you will all join me in my new venture.

Grannies can do more than you think, they can become You Tubers too, but, without the skate boards!! Or maybe not.

Keep popping back for further information and thank you for your support.

Here we go……..POW

News – Latest Book

Thank you for the emails regarding my long awaited horror novel.  I am glad to say that it is progressing nicely and will be completed by the end of the year. printable_blank_book_cover_template The book has been a long time coming but I am finally getting the chance to spend more time on its production.

Many of you have been asking about my Wallace series of short stories for children.  I am planning these for early in the new year.   The Rainbow land series will also be scheduled for next year and there will be more information regarding this when my writing schedule is completed.

Receiving emails from you has been very encouraging and I thank you for giving me the inspiration to continue with my writing.  I am sorry that I could not reply to individual emails, there was quite a few :).   But I will continue to post updates here to keep you informed.

You may share the stories from this blog, all that I ask is that you leave a comment here to let me know and add a link to this site for me.

Please keep the emails coming your support is very much appreciated.

Best Wishes


PS:  Janice B, the post Bubbles is a figment of my imagination, it didn’t really happen.  The place is familiar because the setting I used is a place where I once lived.
