Still on that boat…

Strawberry blonde in a dizzy world!

Yeee haaar!


Hmmm I just wrote a really funny blog with lots of nice pics and it has been deleted twice. Having a major throw myself on the floor kicking and screaming strop (in my head – I’m in a bar using wifi I don’t want to get sectioned!)


Lets try again:


Well that was about as fast as I wanted to go! I had a lovely lunch out with my dad followed by some rather dodgy walking and hanging onto lamppost’s. Anyone who knows my Dad probably figures that that’s just part of the course when you go for a boozy lunch with him but I’d only had an iced tea I promise! I looked like such a chav – a typical Brit youngster on the sangria all morning and could now barely stand. I managed to get back to the car without passing out in donkey poo (that would have been a new one!) so all was well in the end 😉

The weather has been a bit iffy and extremely windy but it has been lovey to chill out with my dad. I know I don’t exactly have a busy life back home but its been nice to relax because that’s what you do on holiday rather than just because you have to.

We found some Peppers de Pedro (with a lot of pointing and charades style movements)in a tapas bar which was very exciting as they are amazing. I can’t wait to introduce them to my cousin who is coming out in a few days. She loves food – mainly salt and hot things so these will be right up her street!


I also got very excited about Henry’s Bar. For those of you that have more of a life and don’t watch reality TV (I can’t believe I’m admitting this) it was featured during an episode of The Only Way is Essex (oh dear I feel I’ve reached a new low!). I looked so cool walking in with my Dad I thought I’d just throw what was left of my street cred out the window and pose for a photo. Totes amazing!


As I can’t walk far I’ve had to learn to drive on the right (more like wrong) side of the road. It’s been fun but if we’d had a swear jar I would be a very wealthy women by now. Right fingers crossed for some sunshine!

Who am I?

Was – independent, intelligent (with plenty of dizzy moments), successful, busy, funny (depending on how much Prosecco I and the people around me had!), quite stressed out but overall happy, without even realising how lucky I was.

Now  – ? just a mess really! I was diagnosed with Migraine Associated Vertigo (MAV) eight years ago when my life changed dramatically. It’s a variant of migraine that means I feel dizzy and tired nearly all of the time. If I try and do anything ‘normal’ this sparks of vertigo which gradually gets worse and worse until I pass out unless I lie down for hours, sometimes days. What this means is I spend 90% of my time in bed in a quiet dark room. Normal activities like shopping, walking, going anywhere bright or busy, the cinema even visiting friends who have patterned wallpaper or a gravel drive is a nightmare!

I’m continually trying new medications, all of them with quite nasty side effects (worsening of vertigo, weight loss, hair loss and sense of humour loss to name but a few) to try and find the magic one that will work for me. Fingers crossed the one I’m on now will work, time will tell.

A good friend set up this website so I could become a ginger whinger. No I’m kidding, so people can understand what I’m going through and maybe it would help me to have a bit of a rant. I have quite a dark sense of humour, I think that’s the only reason I haven’t gone completely bonkers! I clearly don’t have the most exciting of lives but I live in a small village with some entertaining characters and I’m always having blond moments (I blame the meds but I’ve always been a bit dappy!). Who knows I may even get better, and I can assure you life will be filled with amazing adventures then!

Scrap that! After zillions of Consultants all saying that they know what’s wrong with me and that they can get me better. Endless drugs and procedures I was finally Diagnosed with Chronic Lyme which was great – until I find out that nobody in the UK has a clue how to treat it. That complicates things some what 😉
