When dyslexic people try to fill in forms … #dementia

Posted December 9, 2017 and visited 101 times, 33 so far today

This week, a cry for sympathy rather than help, hopefully, in a way that is amusing or useful to you. Last night, McOther and I were invited to a Christmas party. We went. He from London, me from here. I met him there. I was late because our babysitter couldn’t get here before 7.00pm – […]

Scroogeability factors. Better late than never today. The build up to Christmas is well and truly under way and I am gradually disappearing up my own bottom. As usual I am slightly dreading the holiday period but mainly because of all the travel, the being away from home and the general pain-in-the-arseness of that, the […]

Coming to terms with #dementia

Posted November 25, 2017 and visited 289 times, 18 so far today

For some time now, I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog, or a website, specifically dedicated to my experience of dementia; with my dad, mainly, but also, these days, with my mum since she, too, is getting very forgetful. However, it seems far more sensible to do it all on here. The […]

When is news … Well … not news but … say … propaganda. Yes, it’s a little bit of politics this week. Yikes. News is, and always has been, complicated. However, recently, it seems two things have happened. We’ve realised this. We are too busy to read and understand all the reasons underneath everything. We […]

If I’d made this up, no-one would believe me. #dementia

Today, back to real life, sort of, in so far as my life is often like a badly scripted sitcom. Here’s an example. As you know because heaven knows, I bang on about it incessantly, I am pre-menopausal. Basically, I feel pregnant and teary the entire time, and I have no memory. The only difference […]

Over the holidays I thought it would be fun to tell some of the funny stories about my family. There is ‘Catching Socks’, ‘Night of the Homeless Man’, ‘Tale of the Drowning Toddler’ and a famous one about my Mum for which I have no title, as yet. However, I thought I would leave that […]

And now for something completely different … #eyebombing #eyebombthereforeiam

Eyebombing: the art of spreading googly joy Saddled as we are with a thoroughly grim world landscape right now I thought everyone could do with a bit of cheering up. So it occurred to me that it would be fun to start a group about one of my favourite hobbies, eyebombing, possibly with a view […]
