Dear Hormones, What are you playing at? Seriously, I thought we, as a body, were all in this together; fighting against the odds of EDS and Heart Failure, beating them against all expectations and doing a pretty impressive job of it actually.

Letting go of letting-go!
A few years ago, I had a series of heart attacks. From out of nowhere they stopped me in my tracks and made me reconsider everything about my life. You could say they were a major crossroads; I’ve spent a great deal of time since focussed on “letting go” of the feelings I was leftContinue reading “Letting go of letting-go!”
What’s your excuse?
It’s February! Yes, it really is. January has passed and along with it go so many ‘best intentions’ and ‘new goals’ and ‘I really mean it this time’s; yes, the dreaded resolutions that are set, year after year, in some inane attempt to become someone else. It reminded me of this blog I wrote duringContinue reading “What’s your excuse?”
You can have it all ladies….
I am happy with my lot. I know in my life I can have it all; motherhood, success, a happy marriage (27 years and counting), exotic holidays, a wonderful home, time with great friends, fabulous car, a wardrobe full of clothes I love, immaculate house hair and nails…..

lesson one: An old dog can teach his owner new tricks! i’ve been watching Branston’s behaviour since we arrived in Wales in December.

Too many reasons found to continue the hate despite all the obvious ones to end it, to move on. in my opinion, there are too manyContinue reading “In my opinion…”
A dirty weekend…
When your husband asks you if you’re “up for a dirty weekend in the woods” it doesn’t take long to feel young and excited again (and rather bloody daring too). At our age, with my health considerations, the idea of camping-out under the stars in a woodland with no traffic or airplane noise is aboutContinue reading “A dirty weekend…”
Choose a new string for your bow
Over the weekend, I went to a local club and tried my first attempt with a bow and arrow. I’ve always loved the idea of archery, a sport strongly connected with the earth and our heritage. It’s always struck me as romantic in some way. I’ve also always held the belief that I would neverContinue reading “Choose a new string for your bow”
Making mood choices
“Don’t be so moody” a much-repeated comment from mothers of teenagers, partners (of both sexes) and many long-suffering friends. Yet is strikes me that this is a strange remark; we are constantly moody. All our actions (or lack of action) can be influenced by our mood. Every conversation or interaction will be impacted by ourContinue reading “Making mood choices”
