A blog just for my American friends…..final chance!

Hello all my American friends. Thank you to all those patiently waiting for their calendars after emailing me. I havn’t forgotten and me and Margaret have been busy in the background sorting out the logistics. This weekend is the final chance for an US friends to email me with requests for a calendar. See below for details. Hopefully I’ll be able to send them over to Margaret next week 🤞 so if you’d like one, please email me wendy7713@icloud.com

Hello all in the US.

Some of you have asked how much it would be to post a calendar to you. Well my blog follower, Margaret Steiner from America as come up with an idea. If I send a bulk order, depending on interest, to her, Margaret will then post them out from the US. I’m not very good at dollars so this is what Margaret said:

“the recipient could get a calendar from me for a total of about $23.50, instead of $34 directly from you. ”

So you would save roughly 10 dollars. We’d know the exact price once we knew numbers and Margaret had a chance to weigh them at her post office. Obviously this depends if enough of you would like one. It would take a while for you to get it as I would need to ship them across at economy rate and then Margaret would need to post them to you.

If anyone is interested could you email me in the first instance on wendy7713@icloud.com

If there’s enough interest, we’ll go ahead, just let me know as soon as pretty please.

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. 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.
