Richie's poem

The End of August

A sudden summer storm cooled the room, cool skin

begged for touch. Reflected light danced liquid

on bedroom curtains, fingers danced on skin.

We shared love slowly with Smoky singing

as high and sweet as sativa smoke.

My dumb prick can’t tell but eyes don’t lie.

Em ess pain

Disease dis-ease the destroyer of the moment

and our passions collapsed.

Death don’t wait in ambush, he drops by

us to pick on choice morsels.

I will serve a rich feast of delights

to be shared before they can be stolen.

I will defy him again and again

my love is stronger than death

and will be yours beyond pain.

Brilliant birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brilliant party on Sunday night for my birthday on St.Patrick's day Richie made some of his delicious quiches and crisps and pesto's and bread.
A friend who was visiting made an excellent apple cake. 20 friends came round with salads and cheeses and beer and wine and prosecco and we partied until 2.30 am.
It was good fun. What I call a wonderful birthday party. Most of them good friends whom I know for 24 yrs which is special, feel very loved.

Lisa Emerich's Carnival of MS Bloggers is brilliant.

Just been visiting Lisa's MS Awareness, Blogging Friends, and a little Link Love blog and think it's brilliant.

A truly wonderful list of MS Bloggers which makes supporting each other a click away.

Here's the link directly to Lisa's great list of MS Bloggers:

Here's what Lisa says:

MS Awareness, Blogging Friends, and a little Link Love

There are at least 137 MS Bloggers out there actively discussing whatever suits their fancy. Below you will find many of these suspects....wait... I mean lovely blogger friends who happen to have multiple sclerosis.

Remember how I mentioned a group project was in the works? Well here it is. As the founder of the Carnival of MS Bloggers, I'd like your help in spreading the word, and in doing so we will strengthen the bonds of our own little Multiple Sclerosis Blogging Web (and share some linkie love with each other). If you are not an MS Blogger, but are a regular reader here, please feel free to help spread the word too.

Lots of pain but still happy!!

It's been a hectic couple of weeks recently, too many appointments with non friends.

Keep meaning to post and then it's too late and its time for bed again.

Very down after seeing the neurologist on the 22 Feb, took me ages to recover.

Having alot of pain, despite sleeping tablet wake up an hour after falling asleep whimpering with pain in my upper right arm.

Have now got my equilibrium and my sense of humour back.
A very good friend is here for two weeks which is brilliant.

We first met 23 years ago, I love having her here and its given us both a tremendous boost having her here.

And its my birthday on the 17th March going to enjoy that.
Sunday we will have a party to celebrate with 15 friends!
