Still on that boat…

Strawberry blonde in a dizzy world!



Well the rest of my holiday was an absolute hoot. I ended up going out for dinner with the Hungarian. I was meant to meet him and all his friends but only he turned up – that old chestnut! He took me a a place where all the Spanish ate and we actually had a really fun time even being sent drinks over by the police it was a very funny night! Don’t worry I wasn’t planning on doing a Shirley Valentine 😉


I had a couple of quiet days and rested up for the whirlwind that is Maggie and Steve. I have to hand it to them after two hours sleep of sleep I thought they would be exhausted (I had to sleep more than them) but we headed out for a great night out on the town. The highlight had to be Maggie looking very angelic in a pretty dress in this great restaurant explaining the difference between shouting and shitting (with actions) to a bemused Hungarian!


The remainder of the holiday was mainly spent eating, eating and err more eating. It was great! The Pepper de Pedro was a success as expected.


Coming home was hard as it always is after a lovely holiday but it was made especially difficult by a patterned floor in the airport. Needless to say I hit that pretty hard and spent some time getting acquainted with it. With the help of Maggie (who just made me laugh all the way) and Steve (who I almost took down with me!) I somehow managed to get through security (looking absolutely plastered) and got home. Egeszegedre – that’s Hungarian for cheers 🙂

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 😉
