Sick of special needs but nothing else

So yes I'm still bogged down with the demands of special needs right now, but even when they seem to be taking over my life, I'm still making time for blogging and my classes, both essential for my physical and mental health. And health news is the theme of this week's reasons to be cheerful...

Into the tunnel


The weird problem I was having with my ears did not go away so my GP sent me for an MRI scan, which was interesting. It was supposed to be scary, but of course an excuse for lying still for 20 minutes is a treat for me, even though I get claustrophobic. The mirror meant that I could see my legs, and the rest of the room, so it was fine. Even the music was okay.

Oh and I got the results two days later, and apparently there is nothing wrong with my brain.  So tinnitus it is then.

Breast check


I also got the results of the breast squashing procedure, and it seems that the current crop of lumps are all benign. More good news.

Healthy snacks


Okay, a weak link there, but it was the best I could manage. I did get a food processor, the cheap one from Aldi, because all of the suggested models from Argos were out of stock. It looks the business, but it doesn't have the 'whizz' function mentioned in recipes...

But I'm adaptable, so I went ahead and tried out this mouthwatering healthy 'Twix' recipe.  The easy version of course, which is why they look nothing like the original. It was that and the way the food processor wouldn't whizz everything into butter and caramel-like smoothness. Didn't stop it tasting delicious though and Smiley agreed too.



And I think that healthy sweets are an excellent reason to be cheerful, don't you?

    1. Funny the noises etc in my ear don't really worry me now, as I've had time to get used to them. But I wouldn't mind if they went away ☺

    1. You'd be surprised :) The only possible sugar is in the chocolate, the rest of it is mainly dates, but it tastes exactly like a Twix!

  3. I hear you on the special needs front. Such a pain in the proverbial butt. Good to hear that the health checks are all good, except for the ear thing. Please share the recipe, especially since it is a healthy (sort of) one! xx
