Do You Trust Your GP’s Practice?

Regular readers of my blog will know that I have been suffering from high blood pressure since Christmas. This has resulted in two incidents of me being hospitalised, and on the second occasion this resulted in me having a stroke, which, as I have written, was a very scary and frightening experience. My open question is, could it all have been avoided?

The Kids Have A New Home: My Sunday Photo

Yes! We have had enough of our twins, and built them a new home outside in the garden. It is without question kid safe, weatherproof, and of course summer is coming so the nights will be warmer.

Getting Therapy To Help With Your Mental Health

Mental health is still seen as a subject not to be talked about. Consequently this means that so many people suffer in silence. There is a definite stigma attached to the fact that you may have mental health issues, however the amount of people suffering from depression is huge. Sadly so often people don’t realise how difficult it is to live with depression, and although people’s attitudes towards depression is changing, there is still a belief that it is not a health condition that needs treatment, but it’s simply not a case of putting a smile on your face, pulling… [Read More]

Do I Regret Having Children: Maybe, Maybe Not

This is a hot topic of recent days. Apparently there have been many parents that, although they love their children, have said that they’ve regretted having them. This is something I struggle to understand. Over last week or so it’s been all over the radio with many people debating it. I was actually asked to take part in a couple of shows, but decided to decline, mainly because I didn’t think I could add anything of any value to the debate, but I thought via my blog, I would add my opinion. It’s 2018 and 25 years ago I was… [Read More]
