Last week I had a migraine. My migraines have always been the kind that warns me, and I can take action to reduce them, but I can never stop them. I've had them all my life. None of the medications worked for very long; we have tried every single one thoroughly. Currently, I am waiting … Continue reading Sometimes medicine has no answers
It’s Been Three Years…
Where have I been sincee 2020? A life update.
Blogmas 2018 – Day 1
I've been seeing lots of folks on YouTube doing "vlogmas" so I thought I would try my version. So here it is Blogmas. So, on the 1st of December. Sleepy. I think that is an excellent way to describe it. The big cats had their vet check-ups, so we were up and out by 0930. … Continue reading Blogmas 2018 – Day 1
NHS Surgery Pre-Op Assessment – My Experience
Yesterday I had my pre-op assessment for spinal decompression and stabilisation surgery. I kept a little diary of the whole experience as I thought it might prove useful to someone else about to embark on the same journey. 6:15 AM - I'm awake! I'm not half asleep perched on the side of a bathtub, evaluating the … Continue reading NHS Surgery Pre-Op Assessment – My Experience
Oh Dear… I am Sorry 🖤
I have just realised my last post was in July. I have no real reason - I just haven’t. A little update. My jaw is much better - talking and eating isn’t anywhere near as difficult or painful as it was pre-op. I’m still going to physio to amp up my strength for my spinal … Continue reading Oh Dear… I am Sorry 🖤
My (2.5) Week on Instagram

I had surgery on my jaw... so I have no idea why I required paper underwear. 🤔 Photo 2: A very tired, … Continue reading My (2.5) Week on Instagram
The Sun Will Come Out, Tomorrow.
Tomorrow, I have an appointment with the oral surgeon in the dental hospital in the city. At the appointment on Friday, my dentist decided that their definition of "urgent" and his were not the same as my jaw is more locked than before and my "good" side is starting to lose muscle strength. Looking forward … Continue reading The Sun Will Come Out, Tomorrow.
It’s a Delicate Balance.
As you may have noticed I have been quite for a couple of days. The kitchen has been the reason - it needed to be organised. Last week James put up shelves in the kitchen that looks awesome. Yesterday I powered on through and got the kitchen back to a level of organised cleanliness that … Continue reading It’s a Delicate Balance.
Anything, Except That One.
Did you know Waitrose offer a free drink to every MyWaitrose customer daily? It's awesome - latte, flat white, cappuccino - you name the coffee and they give you it for free. However, Chai - nooo. No, no Chai for you! They did redeem themselves though, they had most of the shopping I needed - … Continue reading Anything, Except That One.
Today I have a plan! To get out and do things.... Firstly - IKEA to make some returns. Then - Waitrose to acquire some Almond Milk. I am still in a lot of pain but I need to go outside and do something - I know I will regret it afterwards but my mind will … Continue reading Monday, Monday…
