When requests appear on our local online noticeboard, I normally draw a mental picture of the person I imagined to have posted it. But not in this case. All I wanted to do on seeing these words was scream, “FROM THE ALLOTMENTS SHOP, STUPID!”

I'm originally from Liverpool and worked as a national magazine journalist for more than 30 years before suffering a stroke at age 53. I started blogging as part of a neuro-rehabilitation programme and wrote the very first entries with one finger of my disabled left hand. Later, art became another therapy for me at Headway East London's Submit To Love studios. I blog regularly and volunteer as a teaching assistant, coaching schoolchildren in aspects of journalism.
