1 year blogiversary

Firstly, a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has read or commented on my blog – believe me, I don’t think I would have survived the year without you. Both blogging and reading the blogs of other people going through similar experiences has helped me through what I think has been one of the toughest years … More 1 year blogiversary

Hello from hospital
