Grab a glass, kick back and tune into the Once Upon A Wine podcast, the show that adds both insight and humour to this little thing called life for people who love nothing more than real talk over a glass or three of vino. Disclaimer: This is not the usual business podcast; this is unscripted and a true reflection of growing a business whilst raising kids.
Hey everyone, this is Abigail Horne founder of Authors & Co and you’re listening to the Once Upon A Wine podcast, the show that adds both insight and humour to this little thing called life for people who love nothing more than real talk over a glass or three of vino.
The atmosphere in the Horne & Trumpet couldn’t be any more glorious tonight. I have a mug of hot chocolate made lovingly by my eldest Ted, fairy lights twinkling with low and relaxed lighting and a Moments candle lit the room smells devine. All the chill vibes are going on.
Tonight I’m going to be talking about how as a family we are dealing with Alzheimers, it’s a painful one with a happy twist, grab your tipple, snuggle down and come on a journey with me. I’ll take you back to 2009, a very sad and significant time in my life. One which saw me losing my best friend, my Grandad Ted to Non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
An event which was to trigger the creation of Authors and Co, because the book we were meant to write together still has blank pages.
Just prior to lockdown in 2020 my nana P, Pauline, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. There was no way I was not going to fill the pages for a second time.
We never finished your book Grand, and yet here you are in the pages of the book we’ve written with nan.
Its not been easy, I will cherish it forever! I’m in awe of my nan, my mum and myself for completing this book.
I love you all imeasurably and always xxx
Alzehiemers now has nothing left to take – The Hand Family 1 – Alzheimers 0
