Is arthritis killing the life in you?

Arthritis empathy suit

Bounding down the stairs, I felt two stone lighter and twenty years younger. It was as if the old me had been replaced by this young lithe person. It was mind blowing! The change was due to two hours during which I was to experience some of the pain and disability a  sufferer of osteoarthritis deals with every day. The project […]

He just went to sleep and didn’t wake up

sudden death

    Tragedy is all around us. Sometimes I think we don’t notice it but it is there.  It could be thousands of miles away with bombs, death and carnage.

She wasn’t my real grandma because, like many during the Great War, families made the best of the situations they found themselves in. I think she was actually my mother’s aunt but no matter – she was Grandma Ison to […]

Dicing with death by mining under the sea

Levant mine

It’s about a 30-minute walk along the coastal path from Botallack to Levant Mine, both National Trust gems. As we walked through the rough terrain picking our way through the rocks and bolders, gazing out to the sea that even on a bright day looked menacing and threatening, we could imagine ourselves back in the days of Ross Poldark.      […]
