A little about me

A warm welcome to two new blog team members - Afro-IP

After about eight years of writing my blog, I’ve decided it was about time that I updated my ‘About Me’ page, so here I am, having evolved from who I was back in 2014 into who I am today.

However, having not written for the last three years, I’ve now decided, on coming back, to take a different tack in writing my updated blog. Rather than simply just writing about the feelings and opinions that are resident in my somewhat sensitive and often complicated mind, I’ve now decided to concentrate on writing my memoirs (and sometimes other relevant topics). I enjoy writing very much, and it just narrowly beats my love of good coffee.

I’m also a cat lover and have an adorable, two-and-a-half-year-old tortoiseshell furry friend named Peanut. She’s such good company for me. I also share my life and home in England with Alfie, my sometimes demented electric wheelchair who can do a neat three-point turn in a tight corner when he wants to impress! Alfie’s buddy, Brian, my stairlift, is a bit like a sloth! I would so like a fast-forward button on him! Patience is a virtue, they say.

Well, that’s me, in a nutshell! Thank you for stopping by to read my blog – I hope you’ll stay awhile, come back and visit often. It’s always nice to make new blogging buddies, so pull up a chair, relax and know that you’re always very welcome here … Ellie x πŸ™‚

    1. I feel very touched by your message. I should thank you too for all the caring support you give me. You are a very valuable member of this bloggers’ community. I will definitely connect with your new blog – i feel honoured that you have asked me. Sending you healing love and hugs, my friend xxx

  1. My, Friend, I read your new blog right the way through and can identify with so much of it, it’s almost like looking in a mirror, especially the mom transference parts. I had a similar relationship with a therapist for 8 years but again, it all ended in tears (mine, that is, not hers). You have been through one hell of a lot and have no need to be ashamed of anything you did. It was your only way to survive. You are definitely not ‘stupid’, ‘crazy’ or ‘weird’. If anything, it was those around you who deserved those labels. I have so much respect for you. Huge, huge HUGS for you, and love to you for the courage you have shown in this blog xxx

  2. Nice to read about you..and wish you a very happy time in future as compared to your experienced at your childhood..!
    As well as very welcome on my blog too..!
    Stay blessed and live around me.. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Tahir, for taking the time to leave a message for me. Thank you for your good wishes and your warm welcome. I love your blog! Ellie x πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Mick. Charlie was my first; then George and I currently have Ollie. However, Ollie is due for ‘retirement’ in April so it’ll be wheelchair number four next and that one is going to be called Alfie (my friend suggested this name and I rather like it). I hate parting with my wheelchairs as I get so attached (as you know). I’ll introduce you to Alfie when I get him. X πŸ˜‰

  5. Thanks Ellie for liking one of my reactions. At the same time, your blog made me curious and I would like to follow your blog is you don’t mind.
    Kind regards,

    1. Hi Rudi. You are very welcome. I liked and agreed with your comment on Butterfly’s post. You are most welcome to read and follow my blog. I am very honoured and privileged that you have chosen to do that. I will also call into your blog to see what you write a little later on. Once again, thanks very much for following me and for taking the time to read my posts. Kind regards, Ellie

  6. Ellie, delighted to have connected with you in the blogosphere! This is out of left field, but just wondering… Many years ago (late 1970s), I dated a wonderful young woman in London named Mandy Thompson; she was a nursing student in her early 20s. I realize Thompson is an extremely common surname, so it’s highly unlikely you’re related to her, but thought I’d ask just in case. Blessings.

    1. Hi Mitch. Thank you sincerely for connecting with me here. I’m afraid I’m not related to Mandy, but it was worth asking. You never know who you are going to meet in the blogging world. It’s such a big world, but at the same time, I find it such a lovely place to be and I have made many wonderful friends here. I have a blogging buddy here whose first name is Thompson – he’s a lovely guy. Thanks again for your kindness and I hope you find the Mandy of your dreams one day 🀞😊.
