Girls' Road Trip! And stitches out - finally! Well it's finally happened - the stitches are out! If you saw last week's picture 'one week after the op' you'll have seen the angry looking wound as it healed, with stitches resembling the Grinch's muzzle! (if not go here.) On Wednesday, a fortnight after it was opened up, the now-almost-healed hole in my palm looked like this - (pic to come) It's amazing how the human body heals isn't it. Let's hope I hear no more from it and I can get back to writing my next book without getting pins and needles in my fingers. And back to…
Op pic -  click here to see picture of wound one week in.  Well, the dressing came off after one week, and thanks to some great advice from the surgeon who did the Carpell tunnel operation, to keep it elevated, the wound seems to be healing nicely. Here is the photo underneath the dressing – Book of the Week Well, last week I featured a super Xmas one from my writing pal Jules Wake - her 'Covent Garden in the Snow' is a bestseller on amazon, so why not give it a go? More here. Next week I am over the moon with my favourite ex-military cop Jack Reacher's latest from Lee Child.…
Gory pic of my hand op-  and guess what happened in the  middle of it ! Plus the big beauty deal  Well what a saga! Had my hand operation in the Nuffield in Exeter, and just as it was about to begin, when I was all cracked and the hand was numb and the surgeon was ready with the scalpel, the fire alarm sounded! Eek! Thankfully he did not make us get up and go out but sent someone to check what was happening! Then shortly after he began the operation to free up my carpal tunnel syndrome. And 10 minutes later it was over. Here is the 'after' with the stitches, along with the before... and - look away now…
Doggy Days on the Beach in Devon Super days out this week - another lovely restful week down in Devon and the dogs loved the sea - twice! See below for videos of how they got on in the waves - so funny seeing what Gracie did! It's been a great week for relaxing and it kicked off with a special acupuncture session with my lovely pal Goody. She told me I have to focus on getting more quality sleep so I agreed. That's why on Wednesday morning, I ended up snoozing the alarm at 8.30. I'll get another half an hour, I thought. I don't have…
Fancy a Hallowe'en Freebie? And a tour of my back garden... What do you do for Hallowe'en? Anything? I do love this pic, taken three years ago at the launch party of a special spooky anthology. It was such fun - mind you, masks are always easier than makeup right? I don't generally do much for Hallowe'en - but I will be in Devon without any guests this year, so maybe we will have some trick or treaters! It'll be the first year in a long time since my last two houses were actually quite remote so we never got any visitors! That's after many years where the tradition in my…
