Canvas

Back from 8 nights’ camping in North Devon with the children and Lovely Man and his son. Two tents, five pillows, three bodyboards, umpteen tent pegs. All crammed inside the car, speeding down the M5, eeking out Haribo. How to start a holiday… Here’s my take on it…. Capacity Your knee is in my back….

Steps

So, I am now seven weeks post op and the cast is finally off…it came off just over a week ago and it has been a mixed blessing really. It is way more comfortable to sleep at night now…I just lose my eyes and off I drift. This is luxury in the extreme and I…

Now

I have a confession to make, I have another love in my life. I have been working on another venture and this weekend it took flight. I am now the founder of an arts space here in Stitchopolis. Can you believe it??  Check it out here.  Hope you like!

Together

In the spirit of consolidation (this year’s word, theme and resolution) I am bringing all my intersts together into one blog and website. It is early days but if you want a sneaky peek here are the foundations…say hello to Pollie Math

Get stuck in

I am writing this post sitting in the kitchen. In fact, I’m hiding in the kitchen. Yes, I am supposed to be taking down all the Christmas decorations as it is sixth of January, 12th night. However, I really really can’t be bothered. Is that a bad thing? Obviously, I know the answer to that….

Back in January I said I wanted to Take Control this year. I wanted to take my life back and I thought I was going to carry on in a similar manner but on my terms. Then, in June I started to flesh out my goals. And here we are at the end of the year…

Now you see me….

Hey, I’m still here guys, just keeping my head low and focusing on my June goals. For once in my life I’m sticking to my goals and might, might just achieve some of them. Yes, unbelievable but true. The parkinsons seemed to rob me of energy, motivation, call it what you will. Just general ‘oomph’…

The road less travelled

So, part two of my story…I’ve gone and got me a studio and I’ve started reviving my drawing and artistic tendencies after a career of science and financial services. At 18 I chose science, now I’ve gone back and taken the other fork. The picture above is my first studio sketch. It was so lovely…

Control freak

Well, it’s that time of year….last years motif was Choose Life. This year is all about Taking Control. Let me explain… I’ve been buffeted along in 2013 by Changes. This year I am taking back the direction and control and taking more responsibility for a Happy Life. Expect plans and goals and Progress. On your…

Kaleidoscope

Over the last year or so, things have changed a lot as you know. I’ve been made redundant, got a new completely different job, crashed the car,found my inner cyclist, been up and down the road of Parkinson’s and spent lots more time with my boys.Peaks and troughs indeed. One of the things I said…
