Get Fit Mummy – more knee drama….

Ah, the knee. I can’t get a new one (as much as I wish I could) and what we thought was a relatively simple injury, that could be repaired surgically, is actually much more complicated than either I or the specialists I am seeing, thought. So we THOUGHT it was cartilage damage, and possibly a […]


It’s not my thing, and that’s ok….

So I haven’t done a “therapy” or anxiety update for a while, mainly because my therapy stopped over the summer, and I start again this week but also because I haven’t really had much to share.

New specs!!

I managed to break my glasses recently, a very annoying and inconvenient thing. I didn’t have time to organise an opticians appointment for a new pair, and I knew it wasn’t likely they could be mended, given how they had broken (the leg snapped off, because I trod on them, where they had fallen on […]
