Hi! I’m Sarah.
I live in Harrogate with my husband, Chris and our three kids. Someone once told me “three’s a breeze.” It’s not. That was a lie.
I work as a freelance copywriter and balance my writing with raising my kids, managing my grief and drinking far too much red wine.
This blog is my way of dealing with my grief. I write to try and make sense of how I am feeling. I use this blog as a form of grief management. I share our story, my mum’s very personal journey with Vascular Dementia and how as a family we cope, or fail to cope with everything this disease throws at us. I hope my words and our experience help others who are also on the dementia ride. I hope they offer comfort in some small way and make you feel you are not alone.
My blog is dedicated to my wonderful mum, who is in the final stages of vascular dementia. I miss her every day and am thankful that she was mine.
It is also dedicated to my incredible father, who tragically passed away recently. He was a huge supporter of my blog and a frequent contributor. You can find some of his heartfelt words about my mother and her decent into the delusional hellfire of dementia dotted around my blog.
His death has been the single hardest thing I have ever had to live through. The second, is my mother’s illness.
Thank you for reading.
