A Friday Tale from Billy……..

It’s been a while since Wendy has discarded her iPad for me to write to you all. In fact she’s been very remiss in her duties towards me! The excuse of ‘busy’ has been heard banded about but what could be more important than ME……….

Anyway, I have now forgiven her and here she is today being my slave for the day Billy Sitting. Gemma and Stuart have gone off to celebrate Gemma’s birthday by seeing something called ‘Hamilton’ at the theatre in London…….they could have been equally entertained by simply staying at home and watching me but there you go……….

Anyway, Wendy brought Gemma’s presents the other day and arrived with two lovely looking bags…..why on earth she’d filled them I can’t imagine……but once Gemma had removed the offending objects I showed them what bags were really for….

I then spied Gemma with a lovely box…..once again, it was full of something! So once Gemma had removed the rubbish I tried it out for size….

It was a bit snug and I couldn’t make the lid come down to make me even cosier……

You humans really have a strange obsession with filling lovely bags and boxes with rubbish, when in fact, they’re made for snuggling into……

Wendy did have the decency to wrap the rubbish in nice scrunchy noisy tissue paper, which kept me happy for several minutes

Wendy had got Gemma a card from us both and fittingly it had one of my feline friends on the front…..

So today me and Wendy are hanging out together. Not sure how many bowls of biscuits I’ve managed to wangle out of her had so far but me thinks I’d better stop soon or Gemma will put me on another diet before Christmas……🙀

I’ll seccumb to allowing Wendy to take a selfie of us though…….that’s my ‘mean and moody look’…….and then I’ll see what the likelihood is of me getting just a few more biscuits from Wendy…….

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.
