Inspiration...

I came across a quote today which made me smile.
It's so apt for Carers that I wanted to share it with you.



We are each of us angels, with only one wing. We can only fly by embracing each other.
Luciano De Crescenzo



Isn't that a pretty poem?
I thought you'd like it!


Carers do such an important job, giving up a chunk of their time and sometimes their dreams to help another person and sadly, they don't always get the appreciation they truly deserve.

My granny used to say: "never mind hen, they're up there shinning up your halo!"
When I think of that, it makes me smile as sure as can be they were up there shinning hers too!
My granny died in a December and I miss her especially near Christmas time.
It's true what they say though, they're never really gone, while you can remember them with a memory and a smile.

Take care,
Love,

Tad difficult...

Hi Guys!

Things have been a tad difficult this week!
Coo's got yet another infection and you know how it is, once again the seizures have shot through the roof!

He seems to be over the worst of it so I'm hopeful things will settle as I'm supposed to be helping out at a Christmas Fayre on Saturday.

I sometimes wonder how I get into things but you know me it there's a fun angle I'm usually up for it!

Maybe it's the counter balance/ the crazier side to my nature coming out!


I usually help Santa giving out the sweeties and putting the all important mail into my big postbox!




Every year I'm usually an Elf and gave out sweeties to over a 100 children!


This year?
Well...I will be a...Christmas Tree! LOL

The kids love it and if I'm honest, so do I! LOL


You know what it is?
I get a bit of a buzz from spreading a bit of Christmas cheer around!

Aw, some feel good factor Woo Hoo!

I hope there's sunshiney thoughts where you are!

Travel Deals again...Woo Hoo

Hi Guys!

Remember last year around this time I got a cheap deal with the travelodge and went off for a few days to Edinburgh?






Well it's happening again! LOL






Coo has not been so good lately, it's been chest infection city here!

This year, so far, we've only got away for a few days in June to blackpool.
That's the closest we have gotten to a holiday together so I'm taking the chance and booking a few days away again in December!

Fingers crossed he'll be fit to go.

I think I'll keep it a secret for now!




So just like this handsome chap here....



Fingers on lips! LOL



Keep strong and take care of YOU!

Still waiting...

Hi Guys!

Well, there's no movement on the shoulder front - come to think of it there's NO movement in the shoulder period!! LOL

I'm still waiting for word from the hospital!

Coo's been a little bit better and we're now around 10 seizures a day, sounds a lot but remember at the worst point it was up to 30 so things are still on the up!


Remember I told you about the wee group I host on a Monday night?
The members all have disabilities, mostly either physical or learning difficulties.

We'll, we recently had a Halloween Party and it was great!

I was dressed as a witch!
There really were an assortment of other crazy disguises from Pirates and fairies to a ninja clad all in black!
One of our wee lads turned up sporting high heels and a long pink wig! LOL
It really was fun!

We ducked for apples, and made fruit kebabs!
Well fruit and marshmallow anyway!
In my chocolate fountain which was hauled out the cupboard specially for the occasion - any time & date will just about do it these days!!LOL


I loooooooove chocolate!
It's so messy isn't it!LOL

Anyways, a good time was had by all and after some games, songs and dancing, giving out prizes for the best dressed people(yet more chocolate and sweeties!) the night was all done!

Roll on our next event....it's PANTO time...oh no it isn't...oh YES it is!!!

Soon we're off to the theatre for our Christmas day out and this time I think we'll leave the toffee's at home, well especially after last years hassles - there was almost a punch-up over some rolo's!LOL

Keep strong and best of all keep smiling!
