Well, .. I’ve been back in the UK for a bit,  luckily visited a couple of my friends and hijacked their WIFI to trawl my 2367 emails!   I spent a wonderful re-couperation in Naples,  bit nervy being alone, but soon blended into life with the help of some fine wine and pizzas!

Im also back temp at the care job, have worked in Hereford, Cornwall, the Wirral and now in North Wales for 2 weeks.  Although its live in 22 hours a day of care, we do get a lot of free time, so it helps me to carry on working on my Foodie Writing and researching.  Plus they let you use a communal laptop in most places – which helps a great deal. (So long as your remember which version of Windows your on!!!!)

One of the ladies I have worked for in the past has heard about my predicament, through the grapevine, and is going abroad for a few months  She has asked me to join her as a companion and carer. We will be starting off with a River Cruise, then moving on to visit her family in Italy and then up to others in France and Spain.  So Ive accepted that,  shes a fascinating lady of 79,  so will also be helping her to type up her journals, which she is hoping to pass on to grand daughters and family.  I feel honoured.

Family life for me didnt improve.  Which is why I suppose Ive signed up for many work-away jobs, moving around the country for a week at a time, takes your mind off things.

Thankfully I have  some great friends to help me.  One friend has been great She has allowed me to steal her WIFI and use her Computer when I was stuck!.

I am also thankful to her for introducing me to WordPress, as she had friends who ‘BLOG’, and Ive followed theres, and have been inspired by other people who have overcome similar issues to me.  This in turn has helped me to find ‘virtual’ friends who have also been supportive, and although they are scattered across the world, they know who they are, and I thank them for their continued texts and emails of simple “how are you?” ‘s.

Well this is all I can write for now,  its suprising how quick a 2 hour break can go when your baring your soul.  Im around for a bit more time,  would love some help and advice.  When I get chance and my head and heart are stronger I will explain more about my news that caused me to Flee.

Many thanks to those who have sent kind messages and have kept ‘liking’ me

a temporary goodbye,

Im leaving my part time care assistant/companion job in the uk, (I know I hadnt mentioned that side of my life, but looking after elderly people who are waiting for the inevitable can get you down), and taking my foody finding work up in Naples. Have saved up quite well, I had an idea I may need to ‘flit’ at some point, but had hoped things would work out.

lots of family distress, and work problems have happened so Im taking myself off to save my sanity. working as a live in companion for has been the life saver that kept my partnership going as when we were reunited things were good and happy, but as time has gone on, we have less in common and found that a separation may be a an idea. we can pursue our own interests and review our lives at the end of our joint separation. Both still adore each other, but neither of us are happy.

I will miss my friends, and wont have computer access, but a friend in the uk has promised to update any blogs for me if i send an email text. my phone isnt capable of using websites.

Hoping to finish my writing book, which Ive been writing for years, and as this is my last tea break in work, we’ve decided to go the whole pig and have chocolate biscuits.

Good new is ive finally cracked the giving up smoking!!! had an elecric cigarette then patches and all well and done, no more cravings, am very impressed with myself! just wish i had done that years ago!

So sat in the office of this fine house, wondering if I will be back, Ive spent quite some time here this year, but feel its time to move on. I have made great friends with other people who work here, and in the publishing side of my life, but juggling two jobs, living away from home far too much has taken its toll.

will be back soon, if by proxy for now!

just one farewell to my good friends, sorry for tying up the laptop and computer in work for my rantings, when my own laptop decided to go on strike – several times a day!

ok, i havent done a runner,  but am very busy with work,   summer season is fresh produce season – am travelling up and down  in the hunt for early tomatoes, and unusual veg.

have been given some asparagus peas to grow – and a car boot of varieties of beans – i have some good blogs but not enough time just yet,  hope my blogging friends keep in touch 🙂

help with wordpress

I know i dont have any followers yet, but hopefully soon,  in the meantime if you read my blogs would very much appreciate some help!  am new to wordpress and dont have much time to fill in the gaps just yet.

please feel free to help me construct my cyber voice! 🙂

I’m not really new to blogging,  I have read and followed quite a few,  but, I’m now determined to venture out into the wild word, and hopefully resolve some issues that bug my brain.  I’ve always been a strong believer in the phrase “a problem shared is a problem halved”.    Wise words from another person can help point out the good the bad, the flaws and the perfections – those things that you might overlook in the heat of the moment.

I do, or did, have a different media of blogging, and stumbled across wordpress  the other day purely from catching up with a work colleague who is a very very keen blogger! You know who you are!!!  and if your reading this between the hours of 10-4, shouldn’t you be working on that pile of reviews I left on your desk!

I’ve chosen a simple format to blog with,  not sure if I will advance to uploading pictures or images.  Think I’m probably better off just typing to get my point across.

Work is a varied and long day, so not sure when I will be able to do this, but my faithful little laptop is always near and hopefully when travelling on trains, instead of staring at rolling countryside and falling asleep hypnotically – I can keep myself awake by putting the world to rights!
