An update of sorts.

There is nothing new to report again. Due to my health nothing has happened since my last posting. I stay at home and maybe twice a week I get to take the boys out for a run. I wonder if … Continue reading

More plodding on.

Life is fairly routine at the moment, not too dull and not too exciting. I have just had my 6 monthly MS clinic appointment during which it was decided we should add another medication (Gabapentin). My Epilepsy has been manageable … Continue reading

It has been a while.

Having been in hibernation for a while makes it feel like the year is flying past. I have been housebound so far this year with only a few buggy trips out with the woofers. MS symptoms have been a bit … Continue reading

A special Hamish day.

Today is Hamish’s third “gotcha day” 3 years ago our son drove us (I had stopped driving because of my epilepsy) all the way to the wilds of Lincolnshire to meet Hamish. The meeting consisted of trying to coax him … Continue reading

Almost Christmas…Already!

Where has the year gone? Although I have done all of my Christmas shopping I’m not feeling as though I am ready for Christmas? I think the problem is that we (by we I mean Julia) have been very busy … Continue reading
