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 […]

One Year On 

By | October 12, 2017

I didn’t realise it was a year today since my first both-feet operation, hasn’t it flown by? And, of course, when I did remember, I wondered how I should feel about it, bearing in mind it wasn’t a successful procedure and I’m currently 7 weeks post-op from the first remedial one in my right foot.

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 […]

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 […]

Finally Post Op! 

By | August 21, 2017

Well, the first one of two anyway. At home, in bed and doing a very good impression of a cotton bud! Do you like the arrow? D finds it very funny and I’ve no doubt that it will be added to with some faces and flowers felt-tipped on in the next couple of days. It […]

What To Expect In A Pre-Operation Assessment #Pre-Op

By | August 16, 2017

With the date for my foot operation looming (Mon 21st August), yesterday saw me head to the Pre-Operation Assessment Unit for a check that all was well prior to next Monday. I have to admit it’s something that I was nervous about, not only had I been having really weird dreams that I’d be told […]

In Knots – My #WOTW 

By | August 8, 2017

I’ve managed to tie myself up into proverbial knots at the moment, this isn’t a worry about a particular thing but all manner of things as we approach my operation on 21st August. Upon waking every morning I don’t think “oh, it’s (say) Tuesday” or “wonder what the weather is doing”, it’s more of a […]

30 Day Music Challenge – Day 21 

By | July 25, 2017

Apologies, I went a bit AWOL and, rather than do four “days” in one post, I’ll carry on with daily. The children are on school holidays now and that, combined with the fact that my operation (2 of 3) is now less than four weeks away has sent me into a bit of a tailspin! […]

Five weeks and counting down..

By | July 13, 2017

I’ll be spending this summer in a way I didn’t envisage last year, thanks to my scarfeet – as I’ve christened my post-op feet – in that I’m gearing up for operation number two in five weeks, with operation number three (I would think) in October. With the fact that my children will be on school holidays from […]
