I turn over the pages from this old sketchbook & find photos taken 1995 (pre #MultipleSclerosis), along with a few little pencil sketches. This rings a bell & I recall doing a painting ( but where did it go)? Eventually discover it folded up in the bookcase- top shelf under all that clutter- no … More Sketchbook- unveils old ‘me’
Serious Moonlight tour – as written in 1983 diary Blazing hot day find the ‘Bowl’ in Milton Keynes- cues of traffic but quick to park and only 50p. It’s a long walk to the arena, thousands of people. Get to the entrance ‘ no bottles allowed’- so have to throw ours away! Get inside and straight away … More Serious Moonlight Tour- Bowie 03/07/83

This last week has dragged – opposite to flown past. Even if I’m in little vacuum here. Not coping with children on half term, nor visiting those family members in hospitals. But things must be slowly impoving. I’ve noticed tomorrow is Saturday 😀 Lucky enough to have Josh here for a few days. He’s great, … More When Friday is just another day
I have put the Forsyte Saga dvds back in their cases (isn’t the easiest of names to spell, feel the need to add an ‘h’ to the name Forsthye for some reason). However- the dvd’s have been watched and although I constantly dropped off to sleep whilst watching them- I think that is more to … More 1983- a trip backtime
Decided to type something for my blog- but definitely will be short- as no patience & even with painkillers shingles is not a good friend. Now for instance that sentence probably doesn’t make sense! So I will tell you a bit more about my TV entertainment whilst I’m more ill than my normal ill ( … More Short & probably not sweet
Been feeling real poorly- now I know why. I’ve got shingles- again. I had it as a student doing my degree show. That time it was in my leg, & the same again- so real painful from hips down. No I am dossed up with tablets it is a an opportunity to just rest watching … More Watching James Stewart in the afternoon- seems rather decadent!
I posted the other day I had found my old sketchbooks. Dated around 1995- and I said that was twelve years ago. But yesterday it dawned on me- how ridiculous & worrying. It’s not ‘twelve years‘ ago like I stated- but ‘Twenty two‘!!! Before I used the MS with myself, when I was still teaching, … More so I can’t count -where have the years gone
Sometimes- you just need a cuppa. Nothing else will suffice. First thing in the morning, with my toast at least two cups, followed by another big beaker at elevenses. This last year since I have been taking amitriptyline my breakfast & elevensy has got closer & closer. It just makes me so tired & sluggish. … More One thing leads to another….
Reading through some thoughts back in 2001 (that didn’t make it into my book) – thought I’d share them here in my blog. ‘Sometimes, I regret that my attitude can be less giving than it used to be. I have a pretty short fuse, but can’t seem to help it. If I feel mediocre than … More A typical mothers’ week, but where’s my patience?
