Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Pedal for Parkinson’s

The following article is all about my best friend when we were at senior school together in Heywood, Lancashire. After leaving school and starting work, we sort of lost each other along the way although our paths have been quite similar…

Me and an old boyfriend brought Susan and her husband, John together – so some good things do happen in life.

Luckily, we found each other again after more than 30 years of starting out full time work when Susan and her husband came to Cyprus on a visit a couple of years ago. Little did I know she had Parkinson’s disease and it came as quite a shock particularly when our last memories were of visits to Tenby and Saundersfoot in south Wales during the school holidays with my parents and later, drinking whilst under age in the White Lion pub in our local town.

Unfortunately, not long after their return to UK, John (Susan’s husband) had a very bad accident when he was knocked off his bicycle in Bolton on the May Day bank holiday.

If you’re affected by Parkinson’s disease either personally or through someone who has it, please consider giving a donation – no matter how small.

My Dad was diagnosed fairly recently and after more than 6 months on medication, we’re seeing no change but a very rapid deterioration.
