Fall

<edited to remove the rubbish that dictating results in…stoopid iPhone> It’s a funny thing, when you have an illness like Parkinson’s, you forget that other things can happen to you too. You think u r  armoured against other illnesses and injuries. Sadly, you are wrong.  The irony is, until a couple of days ago, I…

Ring

Do you know somebody who gives themselves too much, so much that they end up getting over stressed, accident prone and ultimately, damaging their own relationships because they are so focused on helping others? Yes? I think we all do.  If you are lucky enough to have a friend or family member who consistently puts…

Pin up

To YouTube: I am by nature quite technically aware but I have always for some reason avoided YouTube. No idea why. Think I am just too impatient for it. But today I discovered the wonderful world of hair dos. And ‘how to’ videos : And here’s a couple of attempts, one from me, the other…

Which is good because I don’t mind admitting my little jaunt has completely wiped out my energy levels.  Physically I started off…

Notes from inside

Well, if I can stop my hands from shaking (it’s been a long day thus far)  I will give you an update from deep within the world of contemporary art…guys, Stitch goes to Frieze 2015…and, sort of, survives. I’m in one of the watering holes drinking a very abstemious fizzy water and attempting to sneak…

Prism

People are funny aren’t they? Funny weird, not funny haha. I met a woman yesterday, an acquaintance of a friend. This lady was retired, with an adult daughter who had got married, we learnt, a couple of years previously. The mother obviously doted on the daughter, even to the extent of carrying a double, framed…
