Happy Easter Everyone!

I hope everyone is having or has had a lovely weekend.
We have been very blessed with a beautiful day. The sun has been shining and we have really enjoyed it. 
I have surprised myself for not writing my blog over the past week, but I am glad to say that my Dad has arrived home after being at sea for the past couple of months and we have been catching up. I love having him home, he is very supportive of us and since my Mum passed away, last year, he has been much more understanding of my condition and very attentive. 
We have been out for lunch today and then went for a walk along the Exeter canal. I used my scooter, which, I hate to admit was a great help for me. I have realised that I need a more powerful one though and so I am going to sell mine on ebay as it is still under a year old. 
Dad is going to be coming with us on our canal holiday and I am not ashamed to say that I feel like a big kid - I am so excited about it!! I have decided that I am not going to take my scooter on holiday with us though. I think, although it breaks down, it is still a big machine and would just get in the way. I am sure that I will be able to manage and we are only going for a week. It would be different if we were going for a fortnight. 19 days and counting!!!
I have been back to work this week and all in all it has gone well. I have been able to do letters in the office on a couple of occasions, which has meant a little less time on the checkouts. I started out slowly on Monday, by only completing two out of my three hours. But by yesterday, I managed to do my whole three hour shift. Only ten more shifts before we go on holiday so another countdown for me to do!! 

I must tell you all about a book I am reading at the moment. I found out about it through a tweet on Twitter and Martin very kindly bought it for me as an ebook, that I can read on our sony ereader. 
The book is called, Life Interrupted, It's not all about me. The author is Chris M. Tatevosian. His website is
I am about half way through the book and I am finding it very interesting. He is a gentleman who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when he was eighteen and he gives a lot of advice about how to try and prevent relationship breakdowns. Not only partner relationships but those with family members and close friends. It's worth a read!

Anyway, I hope everyone has enjoyed the Easter weekend and indulged in many Easter eggs!!
Hugs to you all.


  1. Thanks for the book recommendation. I shall break my no buying only borrowing rule for that one :)

  2. So your Dad comes home from sea to go on a boating holiday! A busman's holiday if I ever heard of one!
    So you are seafarers daughter- I thought I liked you.
    It sounds like you are having a good Easter- so are we.
    lots of love to you all
