‘Who does all the art?’ Asked a client I treated yesterday, as he looked at the gallery wall. A client who is not subscribed to the newsletter, and has no interest in any social media, so how would he know? Me. It’s my art. Now that shocked him a bit. Then came the questions: How […]

It wasn’t that long ago we were all stuck at home because of the snow. I remember it well, as I had the non-holiday! – although this did enable me to start a new project, so all wasn’t lost. There is always an upside….. well, most of the time. We are now enjoying a real heatwave – […]

The first holiday abroad for my brother was a complete success, and a learning curve for all concerned. We went to see our mother and Step Father in Brittany. From helping Adam to pack, as he has spacial awareness issues, to the long wait for the ferry, we overcame each obstacle as it appeared.

It’s been a long time coming. Today is the day my brother goes on his first real holiday! His first holiday since he was a teenager, and other than a trip to Ireland when he was about nine years old, he has never been abroad. He is now 48. After living with psychosis for many […]

Most of you will know that my brother has been going through some amazing changes since having a diagnosis of Autism and Schizophrenia nearly two years ago. If you are new to this blog, read about it here. We always knew he was different, but could never get him assessed, as he was always falling […]

‘You just want everything to be pink and fluffy, that’s not real life you know.’ YES, I do want things to be pink and fluffy. Why wouldn’t you want everything to be nice? What is the harm in that? Now, I am realistic, I know world peace is probably a far off dream, and there […]

It’s that time of year again. It happens every year – the post Christmas detox. The media is full of celebrity fitness videos, new diets, and which juicer/blender to buy. With the vast reach of social media, we see it even more, but believe me, this has been going on every January for years. I’ve […]
