One Of My Little Videos Is Going To Be On Channel 4

About a week ago I had a lovely surprise. I was contacted by an award winning media company called Raw TV. They want to use one of my videos in an up coming Channel 4 Documentary Film about the British weather in 2015. To say I’m over the moon is an understatement:)

Back in March 2015 I lost my beautiful Mum, she passed away in my arms after a very long battle. I felt so lost without her. I lost my best friend of many years too, he didn’t die, he just became cruel beyond belief and after putting up with his constant dramas over the years I just decided I had enough of him and his idea of friendship was so far removed from mine and so I walked away and never looked back. He blogged about what an Arse he had been and admitted what a complete b*****d he had been to me and how sorry he was etc etc yawn yawn zzzzz but too little too late. When I had my heart attack he turned away and in fact whenever a difficult situation arose in my life, as it does for all of us, he would disappear until the problem was over or I was better etc. That my friends is what you call a Fairweather Friend. He was there when life was good and used to do this amazing vanishing act during difficult times. It would have been the easiest thing in the world to do to turn and hit the bottle, but I didn’t, I did the exact opposite. I gave up alcohol altogether & I took up a new hobby.

I set up a You Tube channel and started making little Nature Videos. Nothing complicated, I just film little bits of nature whenever and wherever I visit places of nature. I took up photography and I love learning new skills. I can’t get to a lot of the places I want to get to because of my disabilities but I do my best and I’m very grateful for that.  I’m thankful for my little car that gets me to the lovely places I visit on my good days. I think I have made around 80 or 90 little videos now and now a bit of one of them is going to be on TV whoo hoo:))




Waiting For The Sunset By The Irish Sea In Wales

So peaceful & calm.

A really moody silver sunset sky.

“Water, like time, has the power to cleanse & heal”  I don’t know who wrote that quote but I certainly believe it. Just being close by water and just relaxing has a great effect on my pain levels and it’s a much nicer way of managing pain than popping pills for sure.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend x

The Day The Mist Came In

It was a beautiful day at the West Shore in Llandudno, North Wales, UK. It was November 1st. We had spent the day in T shirts it was so unusually warm for the time of year. We’d normally be in woolly jumpers, big coats, gloves & scarves.

In the afternoon we decided to head for West Shore & thought we would go out for a meal later on. Around T Time we headed back to film the sunset. West Shore has some of the best sunsets in Wales. It was not to be. A thick mist descended and eventually covered most of North Wales. Needless to say there was no sunset.

Hello November 

What an absolutely beautiful day. November 1st 2015. Here in Wales UK we have been out in our T Shirts all morning, no breeze at all, not a whisper. Beautiful sunshine and down by the lake even the dragonflies are flying about. We saw a couple of wasps or bees buzzing around too.  Very odd weather considering Christmas is only 7 weeks away. I’m not complaining one bit. As someone who has Multiple Sclerosis I can’t tolerate the heat without feeling ill so to be able to get out and about in this beautiful warm weather at this time of year is such a bonus, one I’m so thankful for too. Always grateful for small mercies.


Restless Wind – Passenger

Such a beautiful song from my favourite ever group. Lovely to hear Mike mention “The mountains of North Wales” as they are also my favourite place to be. Modern civilisation? No thank you, give me the Restless Wind of the mountains any day.

“Restless Wind”

Where, hello there restless wind
It’s been a long time, since you’ve blown through the streets
I really don’t mind
If you pick me up off my feet, just one last time
And take me, where you’ve gotta go

I’ve been tied to a mast, anchored to a shore
Buried in the earth and rooted to the floor
As long as you willing, then I’ll be sure
To go with you, we’ve gotta go
Oh I don’t mind, where it is we go

From Northumberland’s hills, Yorkshire and her malls
The mountains of North Wales to the Cornish Shores
As long as you are mine, I’ll be yours,
I’ll go with you where you’ve got to go.
We’ll leave England’s green, her old country lanes,
over the yellow fields of France, to the beaches of Spain,
As long as you promise to take me home again.
I’ll go with you where you’ve got to go.
Ooh I don’t mind where it is we go

Just take me from here, take me somewhere I can disappear.
You’d take me anywhere my dear.

Oh and carry me away. Take me from this old dark day.
Restless wind, will you blow my way?
