The Mammogram #TheMMLinky 

By | November 27, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I had a mammogram.   It wasn’t the first time I’ve had one, my first was about four years ago, after I’d been to the doctor about my wellbeing and she booked me in for a full “MOT” (mammogram, smear, blood tests) to check me out as I had neglected […]

By | November 20, 2017

Regular readers of my blogs might remember that I mentioned I’d be obtaining baseline blood tests via Forth, something of interest to me as I knew that the last few years have taken their toll on my wellbeing. The baseline test comprises of: “Our Baseline subscription package is designed to help you to track vital health […]

HD Brows and me

By | November 8, 2017

One advantage of being a blondie is that any (unwanted) hairs don’t show up as quickly as they may for people with darker hair, but a disadvantage is that some hairs might not show up at all! I’m talking about eyebrows, which can really frame your frame and make such a difference to wellbeing and […]

Out! #TheMMLinky #SmallStepsAA #scarfeet 

By | October 30, 2017

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I realised today that I hadn’t updated anything on #scarfeet since I tweeted this picture: In which I was waiting to have an X-ray on my right foot to see how the bones were looking after my remedial operation ten weeks ago. It was a revelation in […]

Health #TheMMLinky 

By | October 24, 2017

I’ve been an “autism parent” for nine years now, it feels like it’s flown by at times and at others, it’s gone slower – usually when we’re waiting for the “powers that be” to share their decision on education/health plans etc. I’ve focussed very much on the children’s needs, I have to, to those afore-mentioned […]

Thankful – My #WOTW and Weeks 2-3 Post-Op

By | September 8, 2017

I’m updating my weeks 2 and 3 #scarfeet post-op and including my Word Of The Week because they would all say the same: I’m Thankful (my Word Of The Week) very much so. Both D and T returned to school this week, both facing new challenges. For D, it was the prospect of her moving […]

Laughter – This Week’s #WOTW

By | September 1, 2017

I most definitely agree with that image this week, in fact it’s the word that sums up our week. Laughter has kept me going through trying to find the right pain relief for my post-op foot.  I’ve found that any tablets taken in the afternoon/evening keep me awake at night with an incredibly wired brain, so I’m […]

Short Term Pain – Week One 

By | August 29, 2017

It’s now a week since I had my operation on my right foot and I thought I’d jot down how I’m feeling and how T and D are coping. As I’ll be also having the left foot remedied – hopefully – January 2018, it will also prompt me that initial painful days and nights will pass. The […]

Positive – My #WOTW 

By | August 25, 2017

Finally we’re at the tail-end of this week, a week I’ve been both dreading and looking forward to, at the same time. This time last week I was in a right old state, nerves about my operation  on Monday and lack of sleep were playing a part.  I must have averaged about two hours a […]
