I’d completely forgotten about this. Hemi Help is a fantastic charity I’m involved with, supporting children and adults with all forms of Hemiplegia. A few months ago I was asked to write on article about parenting for the charity’s magazine. In this article I discuss my thoughts (so far) on discussing my condition with my son, and how it may impact on our life together. Some overwhelmingly lovely comments about this so far; you can read the full piece after the break.
Thanks to @thisisamy_ for sending me the photo, BTW!
Just a quick note to say that I haven’t stopped this, just moving it to a new home. It’s too much aggro to update it in two places, so these last few days photos will appear on the new site in a few days time.
K love you bye

My thoughts are largely on chronic fatigue lately. Until recently I had no definition for the burning aches, the constant tiredness, the need for it all to just fucking stop. Since pushing myself back in to the medical system to try and improve my health, I’ve spoken a lot with professionals about fatigue.
It’s an ugly thief, fatigue. It’s constantly there, robbing me of the energy (and ultimately the enthusiasm) I need to live my life. I’ve been so hard on myself over the years. I didn’t even want to acknowledge it, I just kept pushing and pushing and pushing… Since hitting my thirties, I just can’t. I’ve ran out of everything.
Here’s another acoustic selfie. I play this in my 80s acoustic set, Songs My Folks Taught Me. It’s a show that’s been getting a few more party and event bookings, which are always nice.
This is the first acoustic cover I’ve arranged using the Boss RC-50 Loop Station I purchased recently. I’m very new to live looping, but this seems like an amazingly powerful piece of kit. Despite a lot of complaints on the live-looper forums, I’ve found it to be a rock solid unit. A common complaint about MIDI sync seems totally unfounded to me. Your mileage may vary.
I love the song of course. It’s a proper slice of eighties pop genius. I hope you enjoy my take on it; still a little blagged, but feedback so far has been very positive…
