The Hairy Housewife
I'm married and have autism and epilepsy, which I write about a lot. I keep tarantulas because I don't like cats, and I love to read.

D was out checking the Corkscrew Hazel to see if it was producing any nuts this year (we use them in various recipes). There is a small cluster growing on the tree, but what struck him most was this gorgeous … Continue reading
Okay, so I’ve had “Buffy, The Musical” going around my head for weeks now, but the title I’ve chosen is actually relevant to this blog post. This post is about strength in numbers, strength in the face of adversity, meeting … Continue reading
My good friend Dotty Headbanger requested some pictures of our garden. The garden is looking gorgeous and so D took some pictures this evening. One picture is of a rather gorgeous spider – but I’ll leave her until last so … Continue reading
Over the last three weeks I have been stuck in bed due to the fall that caused the bruises, sprains and broken toe that I recently blogged about. I have never taken the limited mobility that I still have for … Continue reading
