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 […]

Me and my baseline with @Forthwithlife

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
