Lily is not my real name. My real name is Susan and Susan means lily. I wanted a name that was linked to my name but not my name and Lily fitted the bill very nicely. However, that really is me. Maybe a bit dressed up for working at a computer but at least if I walked in the door you would be able to recognise me.
BTW if you think that photo looks a bit stern and as if I am just about to tell you off you should see the other ones I took with my mobile. Believe me that was the best of the bunch. Maybe it is just that I don’t like doing selfies. However, at least you know that I am real!
The reason why I have been somewhat coy about my name is that my life was in somewhat of a turmoil when I first started creating websites. Things got worse and worse. In the end I was given the order of the boot as the main carer for someone with a mental health diagnosis.
Looking back it was one of the kindest things that they ever did for me. However, when I started trying to do stuff online I needed to maintain the space between us so I became Lily.
