Well, we finally made the move and Alan, Ryan and I are now living in Spain! Not too sure how I feel about it at the moment. I am missing my mum and dad and my two sisters Nikki and Mandi like mad and I think what makes it worse is that it is Christmas. However, compared with what other people have to cope with I think I am pretty lucky.
We are on the Costa Blanca in Benissa, which is lovely, and we have met some terrific people who have made us feel very welcome. There is a wonderful bar at the end of our road which has become a second home!!! What can I say, a bacardi is always welcome!
My agent is concentrating on TV work so I won't be performing live for a while but as soon as anything transpires Steve will put it on the website.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and thank you for all the e-mails you send and all the support you have given me over the years. It never ceases to amaze me that you take the time to write and if you saw me reading them and telling Al and Ry what you have said, you would probably giggle. It is usually during football and I am told in no uncertain terms to "SHUT UP" - not quite as gently as that! By the way, for the record my boys are ardent West Ham supporters!!
Anyway please keep sending me e-mails and if ever you are in Benissa come to the Bittburger Bar. We are always there!!
Merry, merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Tons of love

Well my days in 'Blood Brothers' have finally come to an end. I think I have been the luckiest girl. I worked on the most wonderful show for 10 years, have the best and most loyal friend in Bill Kenwright and the people I have worked with on the show are like family to me, especially, Kitty, Danny and Sharon, Stan and Lou, Jax, Mark, Paula and Steve, Rob, Chelle, Jase and Bonnie, and others I haven't kept in touch with but are in my heart. I had a ball on the tour with Keith, Viv, Adam, Graham, Sean and everyone and the memories I have will be with me always.
To top everything off I had all of you behind me. You have supported me come what may and I will be eternally grateful to all of you, for writing, for buying a ticket, for buying an album, for standing in the rain just to say hello and just for being behind me no matter what I do.
I would also like to thank Steve for the wonderful website. None of you know what goes on behind all that (and believe me you don't want to!!) but Steve and I spend a lot of time together and he always makes sure that what you get on the site is ... the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth!!!! We had a wonderful evening at Shuttleworths on my last night along with Dave and Terry. Boy did we rake over old times!! Trevor and Janet were there too but didn't come for a drink... very wise!!
I am sure you all know that Alan, Ryan and I are moving to Spain on the 21st October, I will still be working over here but I will be concentrating on TV. Here's hoping they want me. Feel free to write to any director or producer you think can help!!!!!! Steve will let you know first hand if anything fantastic happens. Till then I will go to Benissa and nest!!
Without sounding sickly sweet, I really do thank you for everything you have all done. I wouldn't be where I am now without all of you. Please don't desert me.
Tons of love to you all especially you Steve my friend and .... Hi Father Phil, Hi Dave and Hi Terry!!
Love Lyn xx

Just a quick thank you for all the lovely messages I have received from you about 'Blood Brothers'. It really is a fantastic show and an absolute joy to be involved in. The cast are lovely and we are one large family which makes for an incredible working atmosphere. I must admit I am finding it hard this time round - eight shows a week are taking their toll so to receive all your messages gives me a huge boost. Thank you.
I think from October I shall concentrate on trying to get more television, so if anyone feels like writing to anyone at the soaps - any of them! - then please do. I need all the help I can get!! I hope you are all well and please pop round and say hello if you come and see the show. By the way Ryan has just been working on 'Cabaret' and said it is a great show. Give it a go.
Take lots of care

If you have read the correspondence between the website and the New Seekers' manager then I would like to make it clear that I wish the current line up of the New Seekers success in everything they do and I would like to reiterate that I have absolutely nothing to do with the group and haven't for the last 34 years. And to everyone who has enquired, NO, I will not be appearing with them now, or at anytime in the future. I thank you all for your support and interest in all that I do and if you want to know anything about what I am doing then you all know that Steve and the website is the ONLY place to find out.
On a lighter note, thank you for all your e-mails. I am getting better at using the computer now and I love receiving them. Also I thought you might like to know that my son Ryan is now training to be a sound engineer at the Phoenix Theatre and next week he goes on to 'Cabaret'. He is really enjoying it and of course I am a very proud Mum!!!!
Love to you all and don't forget to pop back and see me if you come to see the show.

It has been such a long time since I spoke to you. Please forgive me. I am back in Blood Brothers and I think I will be signing to do another 6 months taking me to September. I hope I see some of you there.
I wanted to thank you all for your support. My album didn't go into the shops but so many of you sent for it, I was thrilled with the response. Thank you as well for supporting me in the shows I have done. It is great when you come and say hello at the stage door, always gives me a thrill!!
Alan and Ryan are both well and the three of us are looking forward to spending some time at our new villa in Spain! Yes, we have bought out there BUT my goodness, does it need some work! Ryan is training to be a sound engineer. Needless to say, I am a very proud mum. He is the light of my life!!
I am about to get ready for work so once again a million thank yous to you all, especially the lovely Steve who keeps you all informed as to what is going on in my life and who has become a good friend.
