Alzheimer's is a hideous disease.

Not just a disease but a thief that steals from you.

It doesn't just steal your memory, it steals a whole range of things.............

Your ability to walk without falling over

Your ability to wash

Your ability to leave the house

Your ability to cook or feed yourself

Eventually it will also steal your ability to swallow

You will feel a whole range of emotions but not know why you are happy/sad/angry.

How confusing it must be to want to live the life that you always have and not understand what is wrong with you and why you can't carry on with life as normal.

How you are insistent that you can still do everything yourself and don't understand why people keep 'interfering' and trying to help you.

How distressing it must be to feel emotions and not know why you are feeling the way you do.

How frustrating it is that there is a long waiting list for any kind of care/day release/befriending scheme.

How sad that it will leave you unable to know who anyone is, even your children

Alzheimer's is a hideous disease.

Not just a disease but a thief that steals from you.

A pizza party with Domino's new Carnivale range

I always love a good email asking me if we would like to try out something that we already love. Chick, if she had her own way, would genuinely eat pizza for dinner every night so when I got an email asking if we would like to have a Domino's pizza party to celebrate their new Carnivale range I was all 'hell yeah'!

We decided to coincide the pizza party with a wedding party trying on session. Having duly tried on all of the dresses, which obviously look amazing, we had very long discussions about what we should order. With so many of us it took a while but in the end we went with......

Fiesta - Chicken breast strips, red onions, green & red peppers, seasoned with a fajita spice, with a drizzle of Mojito style dressing (although without the Mojito dressing as our local store had run out)

I have to say that this was amazing and by far my favourite of everything we ordered. It really did taste like chicken fajitas, it was lovely and spicy but not hot in anyway with fabulous juicy peppers!

Rio - Pulled Barbacoa beef, chipotle sauce, red onions, green & red peppers. We made this a double decadence:

The man preferred this one as he thought it was very tasty, the pulled beef was really nice and making any pizza a double decadence makes it really creamy and lovely.

Chick’s favourite is pepperoni so we went classic:

Always a good choice in my book J

This is us enjoying everything:

We also ordered some warm cookies but in our rush to eat them I may have inadvertently forgotten to take pictures! Whoops! In the party pack that Domino’s sent us there were also some very fetching moustache’s……….

What's your favourite topping??

Dominos sent us a £50 voucher to buy pizzas of our choice. We chose exactly what we wanted and all views are mine and the family’s J
