Wendy helps me in the garden……😻

Hello humans….Billy the cat here. Havn’t been around for ages as I believe you humans have been trapped indoors on ‘lockdown’……can’t imagine anyone trying to do that to me, but that’s the price you humans pay……

Anyway, I was glad when Wendy turned up with all her gardening paraphernalia as my walkways through the flower beds had become overgrown so no straight forward path for me and Neil to venture into each other’s gardens……🙀

So with me as supervisor and chief camera looker afterer…..Wendy set about tidying the garden  clearing my walkways…..

I don’t usually like her taking piccies of me, but I resigned myself to posing at the appropriate moment since she was doing me a favour….making sure she got my best side of course….

Every now and then I showed Wendy which walkway needed sorting by ‘struggling’ along through the undergrowth…demonstrating the need for some more work or staring intently at a patch requiring attention

…..well you humans really don’t understand the cats eyes view of the terrain sometimes……

I did think about doing my own work out with Stuarts strange metal things…..but just posing by it made Wendy smile for some reason….

By the time Wendy was finished I was exhausted…so decided to Supervise from the horizontal position……well you need to inspect from every angle….

Hard work this gardening business but Wendy did a good enough job for me to allow a selfie…



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. Bless you Billy! You’ve clearly been a great help to Wendy, and made sure she’s done a great job. She must have worked very hard, but no doubt you kept her at it until it was all done! It’s lovely to hear from you again!

  2. We’ve missed you Billy!! Wendy is so lucky to have you to supervise her in the garden. She might get up to all sorts without you there. She will need some peace and quiet now though, while she has a sit down and a long cool drink, so I’d leave her alone for a bit, then she might tackle the rest tomorrow. Stay cool.
