Another visit to see the cast of Still Alice……

Yesterday I was back in Leeds for another visit to be with the cast of Still Alice during their rehearsals. I think they only have 3 weeks left before the first performance so very exciting to see how far they’ve got since I saw them last week. We’d had a fair bit of snow over … Continue reading Another visit to see the cast of Still Alice……

MY book is MY experience of dementia……

It’s a very surreal world I seem to be inhabiting at the moment. I assume normality will resume shortly…. Everything that anyone with dementia says or does is as important as the next but…… Remember, my book contains My version of events. There are 2 sides to every story and this is MY story. How … Continue reading MY book is MY experience of dementia……

My first important review of my book…….

Billy the cat here😻 Today Wendy has given me an important assignment……..to play with review her book.

A Day meeting students at Bradford Uni…..

Yesterday I’d reserved on my calendar for some normality after all the chaos of the last couple of weeks. I was there as an Alzheimers Society Research Network Volunteer to hear the progress of the Doctoral Students at Bradford University, along with Sandra and Viv. I would also be meeting Barbara Woodward-Carlton for the first … Continue reading A Day meeting students at Bradford Uni…..

Another day with the cast of Still Alice…….

Yesterday I had an extra visit to be with the cast of Still Alice at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.

A glimpse of dementia winning……….

I wrote this during the 3 week break over Christmas but then forgot about it, hence why it’s only just making an appearance. The Christmas break is always mixed with excitement and fear and this reminds me why……….. You could almost hear that evil laughter; dementia seeping through and taking over…..winning. As simply sitting, doing … Continue reading A glimpse of dementia winning……….

Promoting Still Alice on Local TV….

Last Friday, after a manic week, an extra was snook in at the last minute as Nicky Taylor, from the West Yorkshire Playhouse, had been contacted by the local BBC Look North team to see if I was up for an interview around my involvement with the cast. Because I see this as such an … Continue reading Promoting Still Alice on Local TV….

A day of me listening instead of talking……

Yesterday was a lovely day down in London. It was doubly nice because my daughter Sarah was able to come to keep me in check. We had 2 meetings, one with the publishers Bloomsbury and the afternoon with the media team at the Alzheimers society. It was a silly o’clock start but at least it … Continue reading A day of me listening instead of talking……

Another media day………

Yesterday I experienced the good and bad side of handing our life over to the media. The morning was certainly a low point and one which I’d rather forget so won’t record here. However, I’ve kept my notes so may elaborate on at a later date when the storm subsides. But the afternoon was the … Continue reading Another media day………

And so the media circuit starts to ramp up…..…..
