Good news - I'm on the road to recovery at last!
The last seven days have been hideously painful, there have been times when I thought I'd like to chop off my head, and there has been fear, and tears.

I made the list of menus for the week, and we stuck to it except for one evening, although I did zero cooking myself. Sounds terrible, but I barked out instructions from the floor to hubby, bless him, who just got on with it! We even tried a couple of new recipes. He can now make a very nice Cod and Prawn Gratin. so that was a win.
Managed more of the novel I'm beta reading, and I listened to the audio book I'm reading too.
The week ahead will look like this...
