Despite yesterday being Friday the 13th I had a pretty good day all round. I’ve been enjoying feeling better since Wednesday lunchtime and had bust a gut desperately trying to catch up with hous...


I will admit that wasn’t exactly my first thought when I initially saw the awful news about Prosebox! Like many of you I was shocked, my heart sank and I felt physically sick but I realised many...


It's atrocious weather outside - snow, hail, wind, rain - you name it - we've had it. No-one ventured out yesterday although the snow was only a smattering at first (much worse now) but it WAS b...


So just as I was starting to go for little jaunts in the car this happened. Luckily I noticed it as Ian was taking me back home in his car one day when they were over. Unfortunately they had ...


I remember when on a holiday in Yorkshire a long time ago with Nikki and her cousin, Caroline, in a desperate attempt to get privacy to write my diary, I ended up in the private sauna room which ...


I had such a wonderful day yesterday, experiencing a window which lasted almost the whole day. A window is where the symptoms abate a little, allowing you a glimpse of your old self and letting ...


The postbox that is. To explain ~ Not being able to get to the Post Office to post presents this year and having family in far flung(ish) places, I decided to get all the kids (apart from Lily a...

AWOL in Scottish Mianderings

Yeah - kind of went missing for a while there. Apparently life wasn’t bad enough so I decided to visit hell and it was such fantastic fun I thought I’d stay for a few months! Ok sarcasm aside - ...


This wee pop started school yesterday. Here are a couple of my first cuddles not long after she was born. Where did all that time go? She looks so grown up in her uniform! She was sooooo exc...


I need some gardening advice from all you prolific gardeners out there. But first - can you imagine living in this sitting room??It's from a series I was watching on Netflix and I was just struc...


I've just had the worst three weeks ever. I don't even have any clue why but there is one thing which may have contributed so I really hope I'm right and that my constant fear of this illness be...


This nifty little thing has changed one of my 'projects' quite dramatically. As I've mentioned before, I'm trying to type up old diary entries (both private and Prosebox ones) so that I can pr...


I've had a pretty rough month. Turns out I haven't got the medication sussed after all. The doc did prescribe me 14 Diazepam 2mg tablets and made it clear I wouldn't get any more. Given that I...


Wednesday, 17th May, 2017 It may sound from some of my recent entries that I’m getting better with a bit more energy and I have to admit I was beginning to think that myself a couple of weeks ag...


Poor Catriona. You will recall she's just given birth to a little boy whom they've now named Matthew. Some female members of the family got a lot of ants in their pants because she wasn't up fo...


Ok - several of you have asked for the poem I'd written for the writing group so I'm being very brave here. Please bear in mind this was written in about 4 hours with a 3 hour break in between a...


Wow - I've just inadvertently dodged a bullet without planning to. I really do think there's someone up there looking after me sometimes. When I started the Diploma course at the University las...


Monday 24th April 2017 I’ve drafted and redrafted this entry sooooo many times but not been well enough to finish it then when I come back to it it’s always completely out of date! So I’m on a mi...


In my private diary I write longhand which results in screeds of cursive writing which might be difficult to read in years to come. So I decided I'd type it all up but got way behind with it. I...


I have now set up the new MAC and am desperately trying to persevere with using it regularly instead of my old pc. I miss all the bells and whistles of the old one - the different colours, fonts...

Iris in Scottish Mianderings

Whilst searching for the film 'Iris' about Iris Murdoch the other day, I came across a documentary about Iris Apfel instead. I was captivated. Not just by the fact that at 90 (when the doc was ...

Firsts in Scottish Mianderings

I don't really have an awful lot to report on the health front. I'm still recovering from the relapse and a bit worried that it's taking so long but as each week passes I get a little stronger. ...


I'm still not right but I'm starting to feel a lot better than I was. Most of last week was spent in bed. This week has panned out thus: Thursday - in bed all day. Up at teatime because Ian (o...

Doc's Diagnosis in Scottish Mianderings

Luckily I had an appointment booked with one of the doctors at our local surgery yesterday morning. But the reason I had booked it was ridiculous. I see another doctor, an Addictions Doctor, ev...


Okay I'm not sure what's going on but I think I may have had a relapse and I thought maybe if I attempted to write things out they might become clearer in my mind. I've been picking up what seem...
