    “Can you mark on this chart, where it hurts,” said the eager physio. I take the pen and circle the whole human body diagram. “Does that answer the question..?” Then she hit me with a small rubber hammer…

    It seems silly in some ways to keep documenting the slow progress of recovery, but small things interest small minds I’m told. Today, it was the first excursion up the road in normal shoes. Hi-tech Silver Shadow trainers in fact…basic 80’s running shoes to some, but good enough for the...

    Six months or so on from a fated rainy day morning commute to work, I’m on the edge of a return to work. It’s a slightly nervous edge too, like the feeling of something new and unexpected. It will be unexpected if my trusty mac fires up and connects into...
