12.09.18 – Bolton

6 months post op! Already?! Yep I can’t believe it either. Well, to others it’s gone really fast, to me, really slowly. Each day during the first few months really dragged as I just wanted to feel better. I’d try and plan as much as I can knowing I could. It’s really made me push […]

28.08.18 – Holiday Season

Ive been waiting for a chance to go abroad for a long time. No care as to where or when. Just somewhere sunny and chilled. Italy was exactly what I needed. There were 12 of us flying out to Lake Garda. It was such a beautiful location, with restaurants and bars all along the promenade. […]

I’m in the car on the way to Amersham, located north west London for my great uncles funeral. He was a wine connoisseur and wrote books about it. I didn’t see him as much as I wish I had. One of Freddys Books. This one written with his wife. I’ve packed a bag to stay […]

11.07.2018 – Slow Progress

I’m having one of those days where I want to get up and head straight to the gym. I fancy doing a workout but I know that it won’t benefit me in anyway possible. I’m still repairing, sore and feeling sleepy. It hasn’t helped looking on Instagram and coming across such fit, confident and beautiful […]

12.06.18 – 3 Months

It’s been 3 months since my surgery, yet it feels like an age! I had my final clinic appointment with the surgeons yesterday, and was taken off a few of my meds. One of which was Warfarin, thank god! For anyone of you who have been on Warfarin, I’m sure you will agree that it’s […]

Finally I’m starting to feel like I’ve got an appetite. These steroids are likely to be contributing to the hunger. Nevertheless, it’s definitely positive as I’ve struggled to stomach much since the operation. My mum and I have been out shopping, been treated to a hair cut and eyebrow threading. I can shower standing up […]
