About me

Introduction I'm 53, married, Scottish and falling apart. It's just been discovered that I have very few memories, not even of getting married. It's also been discovered that I retain information better if I read things 'upside down' (I read faster and more accurately when reading upside down anyway). Stick around as these 'neuro' probs could be a sign of laughs to come :)

Yesterdays interests, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, performing surgery on oneself, The Middle East, What the Neighbours are doing in their garden, Cadbury's Flake Cakes, The price of Milk, The Shock Doctrine, Todays interests, Naomi Klein, Geelong, The History of Splints, Scotland, Glasgow
