Berlin face off 

I was standing on the pavement My fingers cold and stiff  The phone loose in my hand  It’s job done Directions good. I saw my goal Iconic and cool Lines clean against the cobalt rise And then a blue Familiar friend Caught my eye and As I bent Towards its light  I saw my life…

Clocking on

I while ago I talked about having a portfolio career. This was something that started quite a few people talking. Well, here’s my update. The Parkinson’s has been a little worse recently. That’s one of the reasons why I’ve been quiet. Basically, I have come to the realisation (amazingly, everyone else has done already!) That…

The magic of cheese

Did I mention I love cheese? Obviously, the size of my behind gives that away but the real reason I love cheese is because it is in fact a magic Ingredient. It’s amazing, rather like a dusting of fresh snow, a sprinkle of grated cheese makes even the most ridiculously rubbish meal look fantastic. Well,…

Dedication

I must love my new job. I left these unexplored on the table this morning rather than be late…

Goodbye is so card to say

Look at the lovely card I got today! My very good friend the scrapbook fairy made it. Isn’t she clever? Here’s her blog. It’s my farewell card from work. I’ll tell you later about what was enclosed in it!

Want to blogalong?

Canned

That’s it really. More later no doubt. Off to lick my wounds.

Imprint

So, the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed I’ve been a little more productive than normal on the stitching side of life. One reason is because I have been off sick for a few weeks while I let my brain catch up with te realities, physical and otherwise, of Parkinson’s. Making stuff is my…

More tea vicar?

Back from our works party. Very civilised tea party at Bea’s of Bloomsbury in St Paul’s. Cakes good. Tea excellent. Speed of serving (very ordinary) fizz absolutely rubbish. But they had teapot lamps so I can forgive quite a lot. Did I ever talk about how Parkinson’s affects your facial muscles? Some lucky folk experience…
