Reasons to be cheerful 16.4.15

Just a short post today, I'm hoping that the weather is helping everyone to feel cheerful, despite the desperately sad news from Scotland.

I appear to be healthy


Recent blood tests failed to find anything wrong with me, and even my cholesterol is now within safe limits for the first time in about 5 years. That's down to the dreaded statins, which I resisted taking for ages, especially as thought they were causing my vertigo, but it seems the culprit for that is probably the even more dreaded menopause. So I've given in, and they've been added to the growing pile of pills I apparently need to keep going...

A first


Smiley grabbed my arm as I sat next to her, and I worked out that it was because she wanted me to change her video. Since then the school has reported the same thing. I'm delighted that she is getting more proactively demanding.

School


The return to school has gone much more smoothly than I expected, and I've been enjoying an empty house some mornings.

The Tax Return


Even more dreaded in this house than the menopause. But today I got stuck in, and I have most of it completed. I couldn't have done it without a break from all the stress of the past few months.

    1. Once you're menopausal, all good health news is welcome, isn't it?
