How I Got Here

My mother was diagnosed with dementia in Sep '04 and while initially all was well the family started to become concerned about whether she was rembering to feed herself properly by the end of '05. As I was unemployed at the time I got elected to return to the highlands of Scotland to keep an eye on her for a while - hardest job I have ever done in my life and I might post about at a later time.

Having left the hills almost 30 years before I was surprised at how easily I adapted to small town living, helped by the people, smells, views and pace of life.

Another major factor was getting my broadband transferred up there and what became a daily fix of blog reading about the lives of people from all around our small globe. This gave me a feeling of being connected to another community and definitely kept me sane and smiling.

So this is my thankyou to everyone out there who helped me without even being aware of my existence.

First Post

After 2 years of reading other peoples blogs on a daily basis and then having to register with Google to post a comment on one the other day I have taken the plunge and created my own blog.

Not sure what I intend to put up here but after all this time as a parasite I have been feeling for some time that I ought to try to contribute something.

I will see how it goes.
