I have been very remiss with regard to another MND sufferer — Patrick Joyce. Some months ago Patrick did me the honour of choosing me as one of the people whose portrait he would paint in a series of 100 Extreme Optimists. He did indeed paint my portrait – but more like a jolly caricature […]

Today  we woke up to a white out. There was a very heavy frost and the garden, lawns and trees were crystalline. I had planned to go to the golf club but fortunately not until mid-morning by which time the weather had transformed the day into one of the most beautiful of autumn. The bluest […]

Another scrummy lunch today – pity  my poor waistline. This one was at the Coq d’Argent, No.1 Poultry, in the City. My hosts were Mark Jenkins and Simon Walker -stockbroker and wine merchant. I arrived early and decided it would be prudent to visit the loo and elicited the assistance of an elderly waiter who […]

An update on my wash’n’dry loo. It works like a charm but unfortunately for me, being such an impatient soul, the whole process takes a little longer than I would normally like – the dry takes three minutes! However I have is this problem licked as I can speed read one chapter of Kingsley Amis’s […]

Great excitement today my BioBidet was wired in by the electrician. It works wonderfully well and I can operate the remote control with my toe. The only drawback, I suppose, is having to sit there for around three minutes for the warm air nozzle to do its drying job. I have been giving some thought […]

After an overnight stop with my mother followed by a day in London – meetings and lunch – this is a good moment to take stock. The first thing I have to say is that the miracle concerning my artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) continues. In other words, I can urinate naturally without squeezing me control […]

The Bio-Bidet unit arrived today. I must now contact my plumber and my electrician to have it fitted on top of my existing WC pan.

A very nice man came today and demonstrated the ‘washing and drying’ the lavatory (The BioBidet). Alice and I were both very impressed. Apart from the basic functions that are all sorts of sophisticated adjustments one can make to it included a heated seat – if that appeals! It operates by hand held remote-control unit […]

Returned home today having had a great time. I managed, just, with Michael’s help and some understanding stewards on the aircraft. Apart from resigning from the golf club I have also resigned from my last arbitration. It was a very heavy case and likely to go on for some months. Being unable to write legibly, […]
