I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.


    1. Hi m, these are perfect for dinner parties. I’m not too bad today thanks, more acupuncture first thing tomorrow which is brilliant. Glad you still plodding along, we have to do that really don’t we? :))
