Temporary blogging silence

Yes, I know, I have just broken that silence but am about to re-impose it, this time officially, for about a week. Early tomorrow morning (you mean there are two 7 o'clocks in the day?) I have to deliver myself into the hands of the NHS for it to deal surgically with a problem in my back that has been making my life very difficult for some months. Make that a couple of years. Anyway, they can deal with it and the operation will be, I hope, if not the end of the problem, at least the beginning of the end. To be honest, I will settle for beginning of the end as anyone who has had back problems that affect mobility (95% of the population) will agree.

Fear not. I will return.


  1. Yes good luck Helen, we need you back fighting fit. Just to cheer you up, well it cheered me up.

    There are just so many delicious ironies in the story.

  2. Sorry to hear about the back problem but best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  3. If you put yourself in the hands of the NHS then sadly I have to say you have a lot to fear. I myself can testify to the dysfunctionality and incompetence of the NHS as for 20 years I suffered from debilitating stomach problem that the NHS in all that time failed to diagnose the cause or cure. Only when I moved to France where they have an excellent healthcare system did a GP identify and cure the problem all within the space of ten days.

  4. Best wishes and a speedy recovery,

  5. Hi Helen,
    Wishing you speedy recovery.
