My first important review of my book…….

Billy the cat here😻

Today Wendy has given me an important assignment……..to play with review her book. Apparently a lesser known publication included it in their newspaper for 3 days recently, but obviously my view is far more important and fans will be waiting to see what I think before ordering it………

Well, first of all the cover is beautiful and the raised yellow post it notes give my claws something to grip are beautifully crafted and speak volumes about how the company should send Wendy some free samples  how many post its Wendy gets through. I did think a picture of me may have looked more stylish. Maybe it’s hidden inside…..

As for the content……well, I’m not in it enough , I was slightly surprised when I got to the bit revealing our one big secret……that I manage to fool Wendy into feeding me more than once🙀 The game might be up but I’m hoping dementia will be on my side and Wendy will forget reading this😸

Obviously I have no doubt that this should be read by cat lovers everywhere, especially highlighting the part we play in people’s lives and how lucky you are to have us in your life we are to  have each other.

Maybe I won’t mention the book to Neil or Toby as I didn’t seem their name mentioned anywhere, but then that would have meant me sharing the limelight😻 – every cloud, as Wendy is always saying……

Although…….I havn’t worked out yet why everyone goes into panic mode when I get my claws out near the book………..😻

Finally, I know many media moguls will now want to interview me so interview by biscuits appointment only and photos of my best side a must please………..😻

Apparently a mere newspaper called the Sunday Times is also reviewing the book this weekend………wonder if Wendy has asked for my photo to go in there instead……..😻?

Update – it didn’t appear in the Sunday Times – we hope it will be in next Sunday……..🙄

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.

  1. Dear Wendy,
    I have just finished “Somebody I used to Know” with tears in my eyes. I found the book in the library and was undecided about taking it. I was worried that it would make me extremely sad and apprehensive, as I am 81 and worry about what would happen should I or my husband be stuck by dementia. But it was well done exposition. I found it a positive and uplifting story. I must say that I salute you and the work that you have been doing on behalf of those that share your awful disease.

    I send you lots of love and best wishes in keeping your brain functioning. I will try to look upon those with dementia with new eyes, treat them as you would like to be treated and especially try and show them the love they truly deserve.
