And so it was a fine sunny day yesterday- A good day to take Josh out in the new car for the first time. He said it was’awesome’ and you can’t get better than that! Was great seeing over the hedges. We decided to end up by the sea side and as it was early, … More IT skills……still pretty hopeless
is where we bought our new car. After a search lasting months we got a second hand Volvo. Josh came with us on many trail runs over these mths to see if he would fit comfortably in the back. On one of the last days of his Easter stay with us, we mentioned ‘how about a … More Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch……..
Last week was crap- seriously rubbish. And could have been a lot worse ‘believe you me’ (what ever that means). Perhaps I was exhausted ( a mixture of my UTI, MS,H going to Aussie, & Josh here a week) in face I was very tired. On the Monday I attended my routine dentist check up, … More what should have been the calm after the storm…..but was the hurricane after the storm! and I’m not talking about he weather- but I’ve BEEN SCAMMED!!!!!
1)Well the simple answer is getting over Xmas. ……………..takes a while for me to recharge my batteries. Cutting tags from my fav xmas cards- sorting the mass of socks from the airing cupboard 2) Planning /booking a summer holiday ……..That has taken weeks. It is not as though Julian, & I are going somewhere exotic … More what on earth have I been doing?

It’s been a funny fortnight. But I’m sat here at my computer saying hello once more. I can basically sum up the last few weeks with these words bras zimmers antibiotics Cary Grant NHS So let me start with the subject ‘bras’. I knew I needed some replacements- but to go & get fitted and … More And so, I say hello again
‘She’s a strong lady your mother’ said a carer to me last week ‘a fighting spirit’. But we all knew the conclusion and this time perhaps I didn’t want her to be strong, but relax- give way – which thankfully last Tuesday 12th Sept, she managed to do. So yet another funeral to organise- what … More And so what had to follow…..
Weeks are passing- but they appear to be going in slow motion. Time, thinking processes revolving around my mum. How she is , how much food or water being consumed. how much pain killers, is she comfortable, alert, asleep. Last week ( as seems to be the norm at the moment ) we made two … More Precious time
What have I been doing that is making life so busy. Things just to be taking longer to complete perhaps. I love the summer but maybe the heat doesn’t help. But that is a pathetic excuse. I loved our little holiday at the Menai Straights in Anglesey. View from the cottage from the kitchen sink … More Been so long – no excuses…………..
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’
