Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

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.
