Home sweet home...

Wow, it feels so good to be home. Two smiling children, an overexcited dog, my lovely bed, my lovely bathroom, where thankfully no-one pees (or worse) on the floor! Big baskets of wool everywhere. Actually this list could go on and on.

I am sitting in my conservatory marvelling at how beautiful the plum blossom is and how green everything is. The grass has grown so much since I mowed it a few weeks ago. There is a Rhododendron blooming. Tulips. It's like seeing it all through fresh eyes. I feel very lucky to be here.

In short, these are some of my google entries just lately;
Heart attack, coronary angiogram, VQ scan, CTPA scan, pulmonary embolism, pericarditis, pneumonia, allergic reactions to antibiotics, allergic reactions to wheat, Helicobacter Pylori, gluten and wheat free diet, dairy free diet, low fat and low sugar diet.

So ends a ten year mystery which began with another blood flow event (a TIA) and finished with a lung clot, with all kinds of rubbish in between. I can't take the drug route to good health so I have begun a new regime of eating my way there. For someone who favours the craft room over the kitchen this is going to be a challenge. Unlike dieting which requires will power, I can now safely say that chocolate now represents poison to me and I'm not remotely tempted by it. Glad Easter is over!

Thank you for your get well messages. I'm back in blogland!


  1. enjoy looking at the garden, let someone else do all the work out there, and start enjoying eating for health.

  2. I'm sorry to hear how bad and scary things have been for you lately. Good luck with the healthy eating and fingers crossed that it works well for you. Life must feel very sweet at the moment.

  3. So glad to see you are back! Take it easy and enjoy some peaceful times now.
