I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
Somebody I Used To Know - Wendy Mitchell

Three and a half star rating.
This is the documentation of someone’s decline into dementia. Someone, being Wendy, who had been feeling something wasn’t quite right for a while but carried on regardless, until a series of falls forced her to seek medical help. She writes of her struggles, her methods of coping with every setback, interspersed with letters to her old, lost self. It’s enlightening, uplifting but ultimately depressing as we all know this is something that can never be cured no matter what you do or how much you try. It teaches you to make the most of everything as no one knows what’s lurking around the corner, also to treat people living with this awful disease with respect and always enter their world because it’s impossible for the further advanced ones to enter ours.
