Delicious lunch with Ali & Graeme Macrael. Going out for a Sunday lunch is such a civilised pastime, today sadly, greatly underrated.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has at last published some guidelines on assisted suicide. As a result, the Prime Minister suggests that this clarification under which those who assist someone to kill themselves may be prosecuted means that “the case for a change in the law is now weaker”. In other words the Prime […]

A specialist neurological physiotherapist, Mel, came to see me today as a result of my enquiry concerning the possibility of exercises and massage helping to delay the weakening of my muscles as a result of the MND. I had read an article in the MND Association Newsletter from another MND patient who seems to have […]

In the event, the Daily Telegraph were true to their word and reproduced precisely what we had agreed to. So hopefully that is the end of the media frenzy. As a result of that article and the previous ones appearing in the Cambridge News and the Daily Mail, my e-mail box has been red hot […]

As regular readers will know, I am off to my favourite hotel, the Anantara, in Hua Hin, Thailand in three weeks time with my good Australian doctor friend Michael Long. When I was last there I promised the Hotel Director that I would try to include a small video, on this blog, to show the […]

All hell let loose over the past two days as a result of the article in the Cambridge News. I have received calls directly or indirectly from The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mail and the Sunday Times as well as calls from various BBC radio stations all requesting interviews. Whilst initially I acceded to the […]

I have been very badly let down by the press. (See 17 February entry). ‘My lovely’said I was naive to give the interview, in the first place – and how right she was – but the journalist, Alice Ryan, seemed genuine enough and assured me she would honour the caveat that I laid down, before […]

I was meant to go to London to have lunch with my stockbroker Peter Long of Brewin Dolphin today, but he was tied up with some heavier corporate affairs, far more important than my piddling portfolio, no doubt, in any event, I was certainly not that keen to travel in this foul weather.

Being half-term, daughter Chloe came down with my three little grandchildren whom I had not seen since Christmas. Up to now I’ve made it my business to visit them every six weeks or so, in London, but with a journey time, there and back, of around five hours, is now becoming a bit of an […]

Today I was interviewed by a delightful young journalist, Alice, from the Cambridge Evening News, which publishes the regional newspaper. I agreed to the interview with the caveat that the emphasis of her article should be to publicise the blog and its objective of helping others, and so far as it is possible; to downplay […]
