Hide Your Nuts!

Well, that was not a good night of sleep. Insomnia knocked at my door, overnight, and I seem to have let it in. This time, I can account for it. This was my own fault, for I went to bed earlier than usual and forgot to take my last dose of medications; including those which…

Since 5am

Good morning. Today is Sunday and we live another day on lockdown due to the Covid-19 virus. How are you spending your day, today? Here is a snapshot of what my world looks like when I live the first couple of hours of my day: I’ve just noticed fresh black paint on my blue book…

Morning Indulgence

This is how my Saturday, yesterday, started: It is fair to say that my day does not begin until I have coffee. It is also fair to say that insomnia has caused me to lose track of whether it is morning, afternoon or evening in recent months but, thankfully, my insomnia is diminishing. I have…

Flowers

I love flowers and in our cottage, we always have beautiful fresh cut flowers. Even if it is one tiny bunch bought from a garage or a couple of flowers from a garden shrub, flowers are part of life. Our home is filled with flowers and interesting houseplants. I thank friends and family who have…

S.O.S.

Something rather splendid has happened. Although it is far from perfect, I achieved the singing of a song which has operatic elements in it. The song; ‘SOS D’un Terrian en Detresse’ is a hugely challenging piece to sing, let alone for someone with Parkinson’s. I am personally delighted with the achievement of this song and…
