What a busy year


It seems that this year I have been living with council contracters! Not quite but it feels like it, since January I have had a new kitchen, new bathroom, new toilet and to top it all off, I've just had my very damp single skinned outhouse transformed into a nice new usable space, no more mould for me! I't been horrendous living with most of our belongings in the front room for half a year but I can finally move things into the correct places and concentrate on other issues like getting a better job! I have an interview tomorrow to a better live, fed up living on the bread line, hope I impress them, hope I'm not too old these days! Oh well, can but try 


Give up the shit











       I'm back  



       





After two years of being locked out of care 2 due to my old pc not allowing me access, I am finally back. I have a new PC and am back in the game. I really missed you all but put it down to fate that I would never get back here again, that's all in the past and I can start backing the things I am passionate about again. Sorry if you sent me messages and I didn't get back, I just couldn't. Anyway I hope I find you all well and see you on the petition boards :D










     Oh Mother Nature!









 Well, after all those boxes, decided to have a change and went into the garden for a quick trim and tidy. This garden has been neglected and just had a cut for the last year, there are no flowers and plenty of brambles! I thought I'd have a go at composting, never done it before as my last garden was too small. Don't know if I'm going it right but so far I have put in a chopped up holly bush, brambles and a few hedge trimmings, I think I can put left over food scraps in it too, I'll have to check the internet, I know the grass clippings will be OK when I do that but not sure what else I can put in it, any ideas? I have had I peek inside today and the place is full of snails, I think this is a good sign as they are munching away the waste, it's on bare earth so there are probably worms coming in too, I hope so. I think it takes about a year to get some good compost, should be just right for the new plants next year, looking forward to it.








                         We're Here **handcart*





After a 4 and a half hour journey and 250 miles on the road, we are finally here. Moved to be by the seaside so I never have to drive to go on holiday again, lol!  The sky is blue and sunny, well most of the time! and the birds are singing, seagulls don't sing really but it sounded more romantic. The people of this place are all friendly so it makes you fell like you belong, I know I'm going to be happy here for the rest of my days, even if there is a huge hill to climb to get home. I came here to get fit and get back to nature, I'm sure it won't take long.






Today I took my teenager for a toe dipping in the sea, we decided to climb the rocks, ended up sitting on the cliffs watching the sun go down, walked back into town and round to another beach before the big climb home, got home about 10.30 can't get better then that, life is sweet.

                      Rest in Peace Mum
Today 4/3/2011 at 2.30pm my mum slipped away in peace at last, she had been suffering from dementia. In January she was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. she choose to have chemo which to be honest didn't really do her any favours with the dementia. She got an infection over the weekend and her body just couldn't fight it. I am kind of glad it happened this way, as we were told yesterday that despite the chemo the cancer was spreading quickly through her body, at least she didn't have to suffer that as well. Because she was taken away from us like this, she didn't get to that stage where she didn't know who we were, so that also is a comfort. To my friends and well wishers, thank you for the love and compassion you have shown me.  It has been greatly appreciated.

                 This one's for you mum!

About Me I care about the world we live in but like my own space too, I'm very easy to get on with as long as no one steps on my toes. Getting on a bit now but still like to party now and again, I love music as it releases my inner calm and creativity. Tea total and non smoking, I like to look after myself, trouble is I do like a biscuit or two! Of course this means I need to lose a few pounds :(
