Hello world!

Welcome to my first ever blog! Not sure what will happen, my aim is to blog on a weekly basis, but it could be more often depending on if I have something to say or not!!!

So, to introduce myself. I am married (for far too long – get less for murder!) and have two wonderful sons. One of whom has left home, the other returns from University in the holidays and dumps his stuff in his room and then disappears again – currently he is at Download Festival – jealous? Moi? too bl**dy right I am….. I want to be camping in the cold, wet, muddy place and listening to rock music and getting drunk. Wonder if he will come back with a tattoo?

I am learning how to use my digital camera, because I am rubbish at taking photos. I am still rubbish, I just take more photos! Efforts will be posted, both good and bad so that you can take comfort in the fact that there is some-one worse than you are!

Why have I set this up? well, inspired by the likes of @Mum2BabyBlog, @Motherventing and @ageingmatron I have decided to have a crack at writing. Plus my OH is watching some fishing programme on the telly and I want to do something new instead…..

So first blog over, bit boring….. currently I am living with depression (I seem to get this on five or six-year cycle). I had my monthly 10 mins with my GP this morning, and although I feel I am improving he wants to up my meds (I refused) and when talking to my OH about this tonight he freely admitted he didn’t understand it (depression) and that he thinks I am just lacking in confidence….. not so sure I believe this…… what do you think? Does depression mean a lack of self-confidence?

    It can mean a lack of confidence. But it usually doesn’t. Tbf he don’t know a lot about much

    As I understand it depression is a physical illness caused by a lack of serotonin in the brain. Please ask your hubby to check it out properly you need understanding and support. Please I urge you to take your GP’s advice if just to get you through this phase. Sorry to be so serious but I’ve been there and know how bad it can get. I hope writing your blog helps. I look forward to reading further episodes. Good luck with the photography.


    • Hi Margaret, thank you for your kind comments, depression is a physical illness, and the dosage I am currently on is double what I started on this time round. I can tell that I am improving and rapidly, so I am not sure I want to go another step up at the moment, however, I know the option is there and I promise I will go back to my GP if I need to.
      Writing the blog is part of wanting to learn new skills, I am trying hard to keep the old grey cells working! Off to do some photography this afternoon, so maybe I can show the good and the bad later on?
      Am really looking forward to the fixtures coming out so I can plan next season and away games with the motorhome!


  3. Haha I love your son’s comment above! Welcome to the blogging world and I am so pleased I inspired you to start one. There are so many great things about blogging and hopefully it will help with your depression, either by hearing from others who are going through a similar thing or by giving you something to focus on. I look forward to reading more 🙂 x


    • I know, he’s lovely. That is my eldest. I haven’t started this to help with depression as such, just that depression is occasionally a part of who I am. I only hope I can write interestingly about stuff!!


  4. This is a super start. ‘Get less for murder’ – love it! Very sorry, though, to hear of the depression.


    • thank you. It is something we have always said to each other the longer we have been married!! Having said that I do love being married and the support it gives. The depression is just part of me, and today and the weekend were really good days.
