First adaptions to my house……..

It’s been such an eventful year. The biggest event was moving house recently! There’s still lots to do and Christmas stopped most of it being done as it’s been impossible to get tradesmen before Christmas.

However just before Christmas I did manage to get my first change made which has made a huge difference already. My kitchen is small but perfect since I can’t cook as I used to, However, the kitchen had 2 doors

…….very confusing – I spent most days going round in circles – out of one and back in the other…..

Well just before Christmas, a builder appeared and removed the doors and magically created archways……now I can clearly see what’s at the other side – perfect

Lots to do in the New Year but this is a good start……..now we’re in the new year, tradesmen are booked and the next 3 months will be chaotic……..roll on spring time…..

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.
