About me

It’s about time I updated this, how quickly a year goes by..

I’m 45 now, I’m a woman and I’m a full time carer for my severely disabled husband who has far to many complicated things wrong with him for his own good, that fact that is still alive amazes most of his consultant, primarily he suffers with Crohns disease and a rather rare form of adult ricketts called Hypophosphatemic Osteomalacia, which has resulted in him being bed ridden with bilateral hip fractures, as yet untreatable so he is pretty much reliant on me, it’s not the most glamorous of life styles, and certainly not enviable, but it could be worse and I’m quite happy with my lot.

We live in Hampshire  and when I’m not caring, cooking or teaching myself photoshop I like to go out on epic scampers with the dogs to keep fit and sound of mind, otherwise I’m sure I’d have gone mad by now.

I started this blog as a self project with a little prodding from my on-line friends, the internet really has been my saviour in that respect, it’s given me a virtual social life, caring can be somewhat boring and lonely after a while, I wasn’t sure how this would progress, but I’ve done the 365 meal challenge and it is possible to eat a different meal every night of the year, now I’m just muddling along and making whatever takes my fancy and blogging anything different I’ve made..

Showerstorm is the name I go by when posting up my photoshop images just in case you were wondering.
