About me

Today I will try using WordPress for my blog. I used Blogger before but found it difficult, and a WordPress friend suggested I try wordpress. And I discover I am already registered with WordPress!  So here goes!

I am now 70 and retired from my job as a Research Nurse, with 2 marriages, 3 children and 5 grandchildren, all of whom live across a stretch of water from where I am in Northern Ireland.

I enjoy reading and am a member of Bookcrossing.com, Goodreads.com and Readitswapit.co.uk. I also sing in a choir called Voices Together and volunteer weekly at the local Oxfam shop. But my main employment at present is as a carer still for my husband Paul, who is 79 and has mid stage Alzheimer’s disease. This involves managing his financial affairs, as I have Enduring Power of Attorney, but for his day-to-day safety, health issues and calendar reminders he is now in nursing home, following a year in a residential home. We used to attend the weekly Alzheimer’s cafe, which he enjoyed, but is now unable to participate due to him ongoing deterioration.
