My Fitbit isn't broken and I didn't fall out of a tree
My FitBit isn't broken. It's just that I can't read what it says. And I can only charge it if I hold it between my fingers for two hours. So I can't. Apart from that it's fine. And I didn't fall out of a tree. I just misjudged the distance to the floor. My ...

I thought I was going to need a man
There was a little bush just where I didn't want a little bush. I had mentioned it to Husband and suggested he remove it but advancement was slow. As in not happening. So I set to and attacked it myself. Having stuck my fork in and worked my way around it s...

I had a panic attack
Probably not what would be medically defined as a panic attack but it was by my standards. I went cold and faint, my tummy dropped to my feet and my brain filled with storm clouds. The worst symptoms eased off gradually but the storm raged all day.  What wa...
