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.

Friday: Just for a change I was completely organised and had to do very little packing on Friday morning (toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, laptop). All of my family’s Christmas gifts were wrapped and packed, I’d planned my weekend wardrobe (although – … Continue reading
It’s that time of year again, when we return to my hometown of Cheltenham to visit my family. As usual Mum will have tacky singing, dancing Christmas stuff invading her living room (says the girl with the talking Dalek and … Continue reading
I can be positive all I like concerning my neurological issues, but of course there are restrictions on what I can and cannot do. Everybody has their stone walls and glass ceilings, whoever they are and regardless of health, fitness … Continue reading
When I was a little girl, the Doctor was – quite literally – a madman with a box. Wobbly sets, cheesy one-liners, Jelly Babies, aliens, screaming and not a hint of romance or sexual innuendo anywhere. In fact it’s only … Continue reading
