Good things can happen to bad people and bad things can happen to good people. But karma seriously malfunctioned this holiday! Not only did Santa deliver me the no win news on Christmas Eve, I sustained a horrible steam burn serving tea to homeless guests! WTF!

Karma malfunction!

I am buzzing with excitement today. I had a phone interview with Dr Matthias Hammer as part of a competition I have entered to win my dream holiday. He is the most amazing man. And I love German people almost as much as I love the Dutch. There is something seductive about both accents. My list of heroes is growing. Dr Hammer has accomplished some amazing achievements and as all who know me are a...

We never had much money growing up. So one time my dad brought home a load of industrial quality carpet tiles that had been 'left over' at work. He laid them in the hallway and thus ended all the fun of our skidding competitions over the linoleum. The tiles were made of nylon and dark green. They were not too disimilar to astro turf. So whilst we enjoyed pretending it was our indoor garden, we did...

I only love vets more than comedians! Most people who know me are aware that I am a bit of a comedy groupie and love getting involved! Last Thursday I went to James Bran's Edinburgh preview show. I have not laughed that much for a long time. A bunch of hilarious haikus, a frenzied interval and a grand finale made one hell of a show.

This will be one of the most personal posts I have written, but it's ok because nobody reads my blog anyway! Apart from my one subscriber (thanks Mitch x). For the last two weeks I have been soul searching. Trying to answer questions I have never been able to before. Partly because they are so difficult and partly because I don't live life long term enough to need to.

Who am I?

I feel so lucky right now. Betty had extensive tests last Friday to conclude the drug trilal. Her tumour has shrunk. She will continue to receive her drug on an informal basis. No more BG curves or intermediate trips to Summerdale for blood tests. My fighter girl and me are so lucky. I met the mum of another acrocat, Domino. I'm hoping she will email me. we want to start a UK acrocat club.

In November I talked about the light at the end of tunnel. On Friday Betty had her 6th and final dose of the drug trial and I asked the question I had been too scared to ask before. 'Is there any chance of Betty's treatment being extended?'

On the 9th May 2011 I told the story of Betty and how Dina had brought her into my life. I lost touch with Dina for too many years to count, but I have looked for her on social networking sites several times. I assumed I could not find her as she had moved to Amsterdam. We became friends after she chose to confide in me a terrible loss. The sad premature death of her brother Simon. We met at work....

I've been quiet. I've been a Moodle whiz and a DVD Factory. More on both soon.
