Dead Bones & Dickhead Dancing

Don’t ask me how I have dead bones – I have absolutely no idea!  So far, it’s just in my knees although the knock on effect makes me feel like my entire skeleton is fecked and I am one fall away from a mobility scooter.  The reality is probably more like, I am one fall…

Death by Cheesecake – Literally

So a few months back, I was stupid.  I played chicken with a cheesecake and lost. I thought that ordering a cheesecake, knowing full well that I am allergic to dairy and wheat, was risky, but I weighed up the options as I sat alone in the pub / restaurant / my office watching other…

Catheters – Up Yours!

‘Elegant’ title to this post I know!  Is there anything remotely elegant when it comes to catheters though?

Raging Hormones

Hormones are blamed for just about everything!  Spots, mood swings, the killer instinct and that is just for starters with pre/post menstrual/menopausal women.   Pregnant women however, are without doubt the winners in the scariest hormonal banshee stakes! My cousin is 17 weeks pregnant.  Her hormones are just about hitting their peak now (please let this…

Everybody Was Kung Foo Fighting

I used to have a self-defense video, I found it quite insightful and it gave me a touch more reassurance that should anyone try to attack me, I knew a few moves that would aid my escape.   My husband once offered to be my attacker so that I could practice my tactics on him. …
