First of all, no I didn’t get my grammar wrong in the heading, I just have a scribbly head at the moment. If you looked into my brain it would look like this photograph.
That’s what my writing looks like anyway but my brain is trying to match it! My husband tells me my brain goes a million miles an hour, so how do I calm it?
I’m doing it now, I write, that’s what I do, what I’ve always done I suppose really. Starting with lyrics, cute rhymes in family Birthday cards, this blog and I’ll let you into a little secret, a children’s book which I’m currently working on. Am I good enough? Who knows, but I’m certainly going to give it a try. Is it good for me? Yes. Because I think if I didn’t write it I’d scream it, not such a good idea I suppose, the neighbours wouldn’t be very impressed!
I haven’t written a single line about Anosmia yet because had I not started with the above chatter the rest of this post wouldn’t have made sense…..sense get it, oh dear I’m at it again with the bad jokes. Anyway we’ve been on our holidays to our favourite Greek Island of Kefalonia. The last time I went I didn’t have Anosmia so it was a bit of a shock to the system getting off the plane to blank very hot air. No smell you see, it used to be a kind of warm olive smell if you can get that…….sort of like heated up grass and leaves and countryside. I loved that smell and I have to admit missed it when it wasn’t there this time, it did make me sad.
I’m pleased to say however that I ate quite well, I learnt how to say “no onions please” in Greek, as you’ll probably remember if you’ve read any of my previous posts, onions make my Parosmia kick in, and taste disgusting. Funnily enough the word onion in Greek is pronounced ‘cremmudia’, (not spelt like that though), which kept making me think of cream which I can eat but not in that case! Being able to have no onion in my food helped though as some savoury food is palatable these days, and the sweet pastries were yum, even to me!
So all in all we had a good time because some things hadn’t changed like the lovely Greek friends we’d made over there and met up with again, or the beautiful scenery, or the guaranteed hot sunshine, the stunning coloured butterflies, the warm emerald sea, there I feel better already.
