Thank you to everyone who was kind to me, who asked after me and sent their best wishes – I really appreciated it and was touched
Last Thursday was ‘interesting’ – despite having been scheduled to go in for surgery early I got pushed back and got to spend what felt like many hours [...]
I’ve hit a low patch – a really low, keep crying and just want to burrow under my duvet and not come out for a long time patch – I’m not totally sure what has kicked it off but suspect that last week’s news about another part of my useless body not doing something [...]
Sorry for that blip back there, sorry for those last couple of posts but you’ll be pleased to know that things have got back on more of an even keel over here at Muddling Towers. I think it may have been the shock of coming face to face with my own mortality for the [...]
Sorry – winge alert.
I’m sick of being capable, of coping, of being self reliant.
I realise that this is a problem of my own making but you know what yah boo sucks!

We have eaten, drunk, slept and been pampered freed from the proximity of our two [...]
I seem to remember in the dim past that this mojo recovery programme was going to encompass more than just angst about the dire state of my marriage – not to say that isn’t a work in progress but thought I probably ought to mention I’m trying to be proactive in other areas.
Oh dear. The things you say to each other that just sit around gathering dust and causing problems.
Mr sent another seismic shock through the marriage bit of our life Chez Muddling.
To clarify, we’d sort of got ourselves to a place where I was happy that our family life was good. In [...]
In an ideal world, you shouldn’t bottle things up but have a calm, continuous ongoing and open discussion with your life partner about your relationship.
Which would be lovely if totally unlikely to happen if you’re both shattered from juggling work and babies, working on slightly different time zones so you can manage [...]
It’s been rather hard to update my mojo recovery story because not much has happened.
My pelvic floor is making terribly slow progress. But it is progress and I haven’t had more than an accident a day in the last few weeks. At least I suppose smelling of wee makes a change to [...]
