Update on Blog Posts

Hey all, this is Christopher’s children, Charlotte and Glenn. We’re just giving you an update to say that there won’t be any blog posts for now and Christopher won’t be on social media for at least a week, possibly longer, due to health issues with his mum. If you could send your well wishes to our dad that would be amazing – thank you for reading and supporting the website!

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. A busy time ahead made even busier by my writing a book on the TV series, Lewis.

  2. Love and hugs for your family. I have my own challenges as I start chemotherapy May 1 for an abdominal wall cancer from my hysterectomy Nov 2018. Challenging during normal times but crazy now with all the precautions being taken at every medical facility I go to for tests and treatment. Hope your mom is getting the best of care. 💗🇬🇧🇺🇸
