I have been very remiss in blogging and seemed to have fallen down a big black blog hole in terms of posting. I've still been around and have loved reading your blog posts which have helped sustain me. I love the bloggers I read who tell it like it is - the good, the bad and the frankly funny and it has been great to hear of your lives. Generally I like my own blog to be positive, or at the least balanced, but the effort of being upbeat was just too much when I was tired, sore and disheartened. I know many bloggers are struggling with much worse life circumstances than me but sometimes all we can do is manage what is ours.
My knee is still not great and I have to use my hated crutch but being able to drive a bit further and just getting out under my own steam feels good. I am getting back to work which is a tonic in itself, if rather knackering, but great to be occupied purposefully again. I'm not sure how things will pan out but, finally I have clinicians I trust and a supportive boss so while things are not perfect they are probably as good as they can be right now. It's not been all misery as some nice things and some craft makes have happened too and I'll try to get these written up as posts. So apologies in advance if I end up bombarding you with a torrent of blog posts. Hopefully, not so many that you end up needing a rest from me!
