Paradise (lost)

16 May

On 25 August 2021 I wrote

Another fine day in paradise

Paradise wasn’t lost at all. It was here all along. perhaps we needed a global pandemic and my mother’s dementia to see it, but look! Life was pretty good!

Remember, if you want to find your own paradise and think it might be here, we’re selling the house, with the view, and the fabulous terrace with the views across the Clyde Valley. You’d have to buy your own pizza oven, but it would be worth it! You can get all the details here.


I started writing this series of posts here, with Taking Smock of the Situation, an embroidery project I started after I realised Mum might have dementia. There I was, embroidering her old fisherman’s smock with symbols relating to her life; while her memories were having their own wee party, jumbling themselves up and then running off into the night, never to be seen again.

Before that I blogged about whatever I was cooking and you can find my recipes here.
