Lamposts and Wires

 I have realised recently how difficult it can be to get the picture you want without including lamposts and telephone wires,they are everywhere. Mostly they detract from the image you are trying to capture, but in this picture I like them and think they actually add something to the picture, there is no accounting for taste. Or, could it be that I am simply not clever enough to edit them out:)
Time for a cuppa and some food, now that I can do.

Missing...Not In Action

Everyday my aim is to either write something here or post a picture, so far I am not doing to good. I do not know where the days disappear to. Not enough " well" time in the day for me. It has mostly been a "on the sofa" type week for me, apart from a trip to the supermarket and today's excitement, a trip to the doctors. On Monday if anyone had saw me they would have thought I had been on the booze as my balance was all over the place, it's amazing what becomes "normal" to someone with ME. Tuesday I had a malfunctioning brain, the dog almost had bird seed mixed in with her dinner instead of dog biscuits ( she would probably have ate it anyway). Yesterday my friend (who also has ME) visited with her dog Coco. This dog is lacking in the beauty department but she is so loopy you have got to love her, a bit like her owner, she drove up to see me in her pyjamas, just another normal day. Today I read that this coming weekend is the second anniversary of the death of Sophia Mirza, she was the first person recorded in the UK to have died as a direct result of the illness ME. Part of her "treatment" involved being forcibly removed from her home and sectioned. The story of Sophia's illness is horrendous but sadly not uncommon for ME sufferers. My thoughts are with her family,their suffering continues. To end tonight's ramblings on a lighter note my daughter has just perched herself on the end of my bed wanting to talk about her 18th birthday party ( what party ). Its not till April....HELP

In the villages in Crete they drink their wine from these little glasses, I borrowed one whilst I was there.

A Little Stroll

In the past couple of weeks I have managed to get out for a walk, this has been quite an achievement. The dog has been loving it, if dogs can have expressions then hers read "what we're going out!" I am lucky that nearby there is a historical monument ( a old castle) with some beautiful woodland walkways. Met a group of other dog walkers who stared but gave me neither a smile or a nod, I was definitely invading on their territory, people can be funny, but their dogs were nice.

I have really got to get to grips with this and start blogging. To be honest I forgot all about it. Anyone with a ME brain would understand this. I had a really relaxing break recently in Crete, the highlight being a chinese massage on the beach, it made me feel 2ft taller.Think I have now got the post holiday blues. It surprises me everytime I go that I can feel slightly better, less pain, less fatigue and able to do more. Now back home, back to reality I feel somewhat angry that it cant be like that more often.
