Billy’s Preparations

Billy here………with only 1 weeks to go to Wendy’s retirement I thought I’d better do myself a checklist to make sure everything is I’m ready………..

Ordered more of my Wendy’s biscuits…………. tick
Told my mate Bruce we need to put off digging the garden until night falls when less likely to be under surveillance ……….tick
Told Bruce, Toby, Josie, Binks and Fluff that the digging for treasure game will now need to be in one of their gardens…… tick
Dropped hints to Stuart that BBQ needs a clean ………tick
My Wendy’s comfy chair in loft ready …….tick
Gardening tools in shed waiting …………..tick
Told Bruce I’ll be helping Wendy in the garden more and won’t be free to play out ……….tick
Told Bruce might not be able to use BBQ as launch pad quite so often ………….tick
Practiced getting out of the way quick so as not to send Wendy flying ………….tick
Getting Gemma and Stuart used to the idea that my affections will have to be shared equally………………..might leave that until I have to……
Practiced cute helpless expression……………. ongoing……..

Phew! After all that mental exhaustion, I need a rest……

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.
