My name is Sarah, I am 39 and have been happily married to Bert since October 2012. This blog is just to keep me sane and generally waffle on about my family, more specifically acquiring my first husband (even though he was my first boyfriend when I was 17) at the grand old age of 39.
This is a bit of everything blog – becoming a step-parent, even though the children have requested that the word step isn’t used.
Me and my friend Frank Fitzgerald – the name we have given to my epilepsy and all things to do with him.
Finally having to cave in and use a wheelchair due to a back injury in February 2009 as walking more than 2 steps unsupported and I look like a toddler (you get the picture, usually with me flat on my face!).
The acquisition of a corn snake (Catherine Earnshaw from Wuthering Heights – Cathy for short). She is now home with us and settling in fantastically well. Have signed up to a forum and they have been fantastically welcoming and no question is too small or “stupid” for them to help with.
My love of the TV show Supernatural,
And, I have saved the best (for me) till last, my new found love of photography. I have been taking them for a while, but it was a comment that a professional photographer that I follow made that gave me the confidence to finally post up some of my paltry offerings. I use the following for my photography:-
Fujifilm FinePix S4400 Bridge Camera
Aviary for effects, orientation, cropping, brightness, saturation, contrast and sharpness
Snapseed for selective adjustment, filters, selective adjustment, image tuning and straightening.
Lensflare for flare effects and filters
Tilt-Shift for when I want to pretend I have a full on DSLR (so not ready for that yet!)
TitleFx for adding wording to my photographs if I want to. I am in no way arrogant enough to watermark my own pictures, but I like it for reference.
If anyone wants to get in contact with me, with regards to wheelchairs, epilepsy, step parenting – hell, anything I write about, you can get me at wheelynotwhatiwanted [at] hotmail [dot] com. Anything you might want to talk about will be treated in the strictest confidence and I can promise you that it would be covered by the Data Protection act 1998.
