Saturday 25th August 2012

It was about 07:00am. What a great day as I knew that he was here already.
I was so ready for 10:00am.
It was going to be the MOST SPECIAL day with me.
I couldn’t really believe that he was coming to see me, for the whole weekend.
I was so chuffed that Jake asked to see me all weekend.
Usually, young boys of 11 years old just “hing a’boot”, but he would rather spend time with me. I wanted to jump over the moon. When Jake arrived with Janiece we had all our kisses and cuddles, it was so lovely to have him there. It was so good not spending my affections on anyone else. I loved just spending my affections on just one person.


We got into the car and made our way home, it felt like it only took us seconds.
We all got ready to go to THE MAGNA. It is a Millenium Project.
It is pretty perfect, it deals with the WATER the AIR, the WIND, the FIRE and lastly the EARTH.
These projects teach us what is happening with each element, right down to each little atom.
There was so much happening all around us, we didn’t even think of talking. There was so much to feel and see.

One of the staff members, Bob Beeden was telling us about the works of this factory from years ago, The iron ore was being crushed, melted to make the steel. There was so much information. Did we talk – not really. Our eyes were so busy with the actions. Bob said that it would take a million pounds sterling to pay for the electricity that would be used in this factory if it was still working for a week. WOW. He was full of so much information. Bob’s brain was like a sponge, it soaked up everything.



You had to hand chip, hammer and chisel, you hurt your thumb once it hurts, you hit your thumb twice you are a bit clumsy and it hurts worse, you don’t hit your thumb again ‘cos you realise it hurts and hold your hand in the right place.


Can you imagine the noise 24 hours a day ‘cos you knew when we had the furnaces going you got the thump, thump, thump of the furging hammers going all day and night.

There has been so much education for our brains. It has been so fast, all the work in my brain. I had the BEST DAY with JAKE.
WOW...what a fab burger

Today is a fantastic day. 

I would like to properly share my life with you all.  I will cross all the T’s  and dot all the i’s. I don’t mind sharing all with you.

I wake up in the morning with the BIGGEST smile from me. I smile at all my friends in my pictures, they lead me the right way, even Mr Patel (thanks)

I went to the next room for my fitness time.
I like cycling, so here we go:-
5mins at No 3. (I’m puffed after 3mins!!!) (warm up).
10mins at No 5
5mins at No 3.  (warm down).


I go for my weetabix and coffee and toast.
I’ts nice to be in control of what I eat and when I eat.
Everything was always on a rota. You ate, you drank, you slept.
I feel great that I have my body back.
Janiece arrived just after my fitness and my toast and coffee. I had to cancel my swimming this morning, well it was a girlie thing. I’ve even got that back. Woohoo.


Why don’t we have a girlie day!!!
Hey, I have some great ideas. We both wanted to go to Meadowhall. FANTASTIC.
I love looking at a bit of BLING. I love looking at colours.
We both decided to go for a cappucinno and a sandwich. I needed to use a ladies loo. We decided to WALK into COFFEE. That’s the name of the coffee shop. I had the biggest feeling in my belly as we walked past the first table, When we got up to the service desk area we asked Phil if I could use the toilet. He said “YES” and let me use the facility. Thank goodness.

While we were ordering our food and drink, I turned round to Janiece and I asked her:-

“Is this the place you took me to on my first day away from hospital . I can tell you exactly where I sat”
The staff were asking if I was ok. I was crying. I here I had  so many emotions in my body.
I told the staff that I was so happy that I knew where I had been.
I was crying because I was so happy, but I was crying because I had lost a big part of my life. The speaking and the legs.


The staff were so lovely towards me. THANK YOU COFFEE STAFF.
Janiece gave me so many kisses and cuddles to calm me down.
I told Janiece that I’m not hiding any emotion.


I told Janiece that she had to take my picture. I want to let you all know how I was feeling with my emotions.
Each step seems like a small step, but for me it has been the biggest step to get my life back. My body was lost in a SAD, SAD, SPACE. I couldn’t tell you where I  was, I feel that my body was hiding somewhere else.


I went up to the staff Phil Newton, clare Neilson, Dorota Orgas and Caroline Newbold.
I asked them to take our picture for the blog. I gave them my email blog and popped for a wee then I came back for the picture. WELL, WELL, WELL. They put the email address in the phone while I was in the loo. When I came out they were looking at my story on the phone. I was so pleased that they got a chance to read my story.

Thursday 23rd August 2012


I was sitting writing this morning at 08:30am. I was sitting here in my nightie and I click, clicked the keyboard. I was just going to potter doing nothing, when the door went. Oops. I have a doctors appointment at 09:50am!
It was a quick ready, steady, go.  I’ve never gone as fast in a long, long time.
I got to the doctor’s ok.
We sat for a little while in a queue. There was nice chatting and then one of the girls phone made an expression of “answer me please”.!!!
She ran outside as she forgot to silence her phone OOPS!!!
That was very funny :) :) Hey, it was worth it.
We managed to get through to the doctor, He said a few words and so did I. He clicked on a few details, done. GO, GO, GO.
That was a quick appointment. Good.


We went into the CO-OP for some pork for our dinner. We got up the checkout then we were ready to pay. OOPS again. NO MONEY. I found it quite funny. OOPS.
When I got home I put the radio on, it was:-

For those of us who love music……..and haven’t given up on life.


I pottered about and decided to say “Hello” to JAKE. I said on my paper.

It’s Thursday 23rd August
It is 1:25pm
Can’t wait till Saturday

I thought it was the right thing for him when he gets here on Friday night. It will be a nice present from me to him. I remember Jake coming the last time with his mum and dad and Aaron. We had a lovely time.
We had a good BBQ and chatting, chatting, chatting.


I then decided to use our cycle in the next room.
I puffed  and puffed after No 3  for 5 minutes, just doing my warm up. Slowly.
Then 10 minutes for No 5, I could feel the muscles in my left knee. It was actually at the front of my knee. Then I was ready for another 5 minutes warm down.
Any thing that changes, or itches or strains, I find out exactly where it comes from straight away. It’s good to know what is happening with my body.


I made myself a lovely salad for my dinner. It makes me feel great that I can make my own food. I’m well and truly chuffed. :)
People should THINK first.
I told them tonight that it took me seven months to get my speech back, plus, it has taken me nine months to get my legs back.

Wednesday 22nd August 2012

Good morning my favourite followers of MY LIFE.
I woke up and was getting out of my deep sleep. Just as Big Momma Dee was ready to go,  I asked her if I could have a STALK OF ROCK. Well that was a giggle. Why does the Scottish accent come from another country!!!! He, he,  I realised that she was  off I noticed that I had a spot on my nose bridge with a big white head. Did I touch it? NO! I suddenly noticed another white spot at the bottom left of my mouth. It felt like a boil? It felt quite sore. Did I touch that? NO!


I’m wondering????
Why do I have plooks  on the bottom of my mouth and my nose????
I used to have porcelain/alabaster skin.
Is it to do with the food I’m eating?  Or is it the LACK of the drugs in my system now?
I now take:-
CARBEMAZAPINE – It helps stop seizures.
VITAMIN B – To help the brain to function.
THIAMINE – After my BRAIN INJURY – These vitamins help the brain function.
EXYOUTIN – Helps with bladder function.
Maybe my inner system is throwing out all the bad thing’s in my body. “SPOTS”?



I’m going to email on Saturday.

DOROTHY PAUL, my relation from Glasgow. :)
Dorothy lived in a bungalow in the Maryhill area. Dorothy had the lovely back garden. I used to drive Dorothy when she was on tour with her humerous stage act. Remember, we stopped in Arran and Inverness?  YES?
Remember you asked me to put on the cleaners outfit, I had to walk onto the stage with a duster in my hand and make faces for the audience. I had to take the calm drink to help me walk onto the stage. Hey, you were worth it. :)
I, house sat the bungalow for you when you went for a  nice lazy rest time in Arran? YES? I loved going through my memories with you.

Next on my list is :)

Barbera acted on RAB C. NESBIT. She lived AT THE TIME on Byres Road DOWANHILL. It was just down from the cross road. There was the bread company, the pub, down from the cross, on the left hand side. Barbera, you lived three up? You had the two boys sleeping, sleeping, sleeping. Ahhhh.  NICK and ROBERT? YES? When I looked out the kitchen window, I could see the cars, parking? ..HOSPITAL?  I’m sure there was a hospital of some kind on the same side of road, but a bit further down. I’m 100% sure that was there! You then moved to the new flat in a curving street?  When you moved to the new flat, I worked for the POLICE MAN just futher down the road. RIGHT? YES? I’m hoping my brain is so good now.
HEY, I’m a bright brain in Pauline’s head. Memory, memory, memory, I love it. YES. XXX

Last on my list for Saturday :)

Now the last memory for me today is BRYAN BURNETT.
Now we are on the South Side of Glasgow.  Did you live 1 or 2 up???
I can’t actually grab that just now in my mind. It’s not any further up than 2?. I’M POSITIVE.
Bryan, Bryan Bryan. Ahhhhhh :)
You lived just off the park. You’re flat, the road, the pavement then the park. YES.
You had two FEATHER SOFA’S in RED ???
Bryan you’re living room/ lounge, however you want to say it, looks onto the park! The park ascends higher, upwards in front of you. All that green grass.
Now, can you remember the girls living in the main centre of Glasgow. They worked in the T.V. camera’s area,  I’m pretty sure?  I shall cross my fingers now?
They were in the flat  just behind the Maryhill Centre.
They looked onto the BOTANIC GARDEN.
There is the  SCOTTISH STUDIO for the T.V. at Byres Road, and the Botanic Gardens.
Every day my brain is so electric with all the memories.
I’m so happy that you fell into my memory. THANK YOU BRYAN. XXX

Today I was busy writing then I looked out my window.
What a beautiful sight.

It was wee RUBY. She was a beautiful little Cocker Spaniel.
She was full of so much energy in her 18 months old age.

My brain pop’s every day with all my memories. It’s great to have them back. :)
My brain has been hiding from me.
From the 20th of July 2011 until the late end of April 2012, do I remember anything!!
I gradually remember all my memories now. Some are good and some are bad.
I’m so glad that I’m here.
I will work hard for myself and others.
