I ummed and arred about posting this picture, but having had major surgery last year and still feeling very unfit at the moment, I was so pleased I could almost straighten my leg when I tried to, that I felt like showing it off!

Thank you, @voodoodahl. It's going to be tough to get back into shape, but at least I haven't fallen as far behind as I thought I might have. I hope your own training goes well!

We get hat hair!

I haven't posted anything in ages, so here are a couple of shots taken at a recent Folk Festival. I generally prefer posting in black and white, which I think is so much more dramatic than colour, but I've included a colour shot to show off the natural highlights in my beard. People often ask me if I put them in deliberately, but they're actually...

I'm feeling very lucky at the moment.

I haven't felt very well all year and finally went to see a doctor about it a couple of weeks ago. I thought that maybe I was just getting really unfit despite all the dancing and other exercise I do, but blood tests proved that I was very anaemic which was the real reason I felt tired and...

Really hope it went all right for you. I love the sentiment and the badass graphics, mind (Hubby is into D&D, and would approve hugely).

Everything went well and I'm feeling good, @persephonepitstop. I have a genetic condition called Lynch Syndrome which means that the cancer is 'highly likely' to recur, but for now at least I'm all fixed. Thank you for asking! :-)
