This is just me.
now 49 years old -no it’s 51 now.
Mam of 4 brilliant children – daughter 23, and 3 sons aged 22, 15 and 13.
Married to long suffering Jimmy for 26 and a half years.
Have had chronic ill health for years, which led my husband one day, while trying to make me feel important one day ,as i lay in pain on the sofa, to compliment me with “well- at least you have a brain!” – We HADN’T realised the irony, as much of my poor health has eventually been explained by my brain DEFECT!
Am a chiari-malformation owner…and a brain surgery survivor!and NOW i am disabled…properly. Wheelchair novice and discover disabled issues.
I am one of the people who has to speak up….say what the others think. Honest and that is not always easy.
THUS the blog.
Love music ….listening to it…playing it….arranging it….singing it….directing it and writing it.
Tweet – a little bit too often!?
in a nutshell am direct, honest, hardworking and driven.
blog about my life…
and its challenges…
even on my most crabbid days…
as it says “warts and all”…
