Hi! 👋 Here I am, gearing up for yet another big surgery next week. I had easily put it out of my mind, but now it’s only a few days away I’m starting to unravel a bit. I’ll be fine though! It’s just always a lot. I’m too busy and…

For those who follow me on Instagram, you might know that I developed a hernia and my stoma prolapsed before Christmas. It’s been a circle of doctors, trying to decide what to do with it all. Initially, it was thought I’d have a repair. Then, my colorectal surgeon thought it…

For about 12 months I’d been following the Happy Hormones Facebook group. This is run by Lisa Curry. Head over there and check it out. I have no association with them, nor is this paid. Just sharing the love! I’d read hundreds and hundreds of success stories from women with…

I saw this quote on Pinterest and it really struck a chord with me! Find your flow and row, row, row. I love it. YES, that’s what I am doing right now. If you are on my email list you would have received a letter from me last week with…
