The Life of B

Involves managing a few websites alongside extended visits to Portugal, volunteering for Heritage Open Days, occasional travels and running a 10445511_10152663646209205_713228826964685028_nhome with my fabulous husband, cat, family and friends. If I have time I also run a Death Cafe, campaign for end-of-life rights, and am sporadically political with the occasional feminist declaration.

This blog is my miscellaneous blog where occasionally I share happy, angry or random thoughts but mostly photographs. I may post daily, every few days or weekly. It all depends on travels and how well I am juggling daily life, the latter I must admit over the past 12months has been a challenge. Prior to Dad dying of Alzheimer’s in June 2017 I had been supporting Mum & Dad on their dementia journey for quite a while and then the second half of 2017 I have been busier with my voluntary work than envisaged. Daily life juggles (and the occasional struggles) are the reason I rarely accept ‘blogging award challenges’ these days. I do love them but I struggle to complete them with the many rules they come with.

I’m delighted (if somewhat amazed) you have read this far! If you can spare a few more moments then please do let me know what you think10570534_10152252166064205_424943441629550847_n by leaving a comment on a post, or if you only have a milisecond left to spare just like one instead! Do feel free to sharing my posts via social media but if you want to use any of my photographs then contact me first. The best way to contact me is via this contact form. If you want to read more of my musings or look at more of my photographs then follow me on twitter @BBwinch, instagram @lifeofBB and/or visit my Portuguese blog.

  1. I found your blog through Cee. My mom died at 98 in 2006 and my dad at 91 in 2009. For ten years, my life was basically on hold. I lived close by, so I could cook for them, take them to all their appointments, and take them on outings frequently. To navigate the world of older old age is like entering a strange new planet without a map or compass. I can understand your journey with your mom and dad in dementia; it happens in slow stages. ( I never realized that). Now it sounds like you are onto a new phase in life.

    Lovely about page and wishing you the all the luck with all the challenges you’re facing in life.



  3. Hi Becky! I found you through your Portuguese site.
    It is amazing that you manage to do so many different & exciting things, and still cared for your parents. Living with both parents with dementia, I can only imagine, must have been extremely challenging.
    Thank you for taking the time to share you experiences through both your blogs!

  4. HI Becky, I found your blog through Roda’s site and the lovely flower pictures she was highlighting. I am 50 now and working through the midlife crisis section of life, our parents are entering their 70s and so far, so good! Your story has inspired me and your strength you have shown as you navigate that challenge is impressive, to say the least! Hope all is well with you and stay strong 🙂
