Billy and Wendys’ love of Autumn……..

Hello all, Billy here…….Wendy’s out being nosey around the village on one of her many ambles around the village, so thought I’d take this opportunity to commandeer the ipad…….

Many people don’t like the onset of autumn and winter due to the cold and dark mornings and evenings ……but me and Wendy love this time of year but for very different reasons.

For me it means I’m camouflaged for even more hours of the day, allowing me to take more birds and mice by surprise to take in the serenity of village life under darkness without being seen..

For Wendy, it means the delights of autumn colours around the village – personally once you’ve seen one leaf you seen them all, but the photos below are, apparently, a delight to Wendy…….for me it’s purely the last photo that brings me joy……..

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.
