Blog 84 – 9.7.17 Thank you Tony Adams

Achilles Blog 70 – 26.1.15. Oi! Show us yur muscles!

Sometimes I think I know better than the experts. I mean, it’s my body after all and I know my body better than they do. So I didn’t really like it when (hospital physio) Helen said –  get some off-the-peg … Continue reading

Achilles Blog 69 – 19.1.15. Hair trade

Gosh…getting into the habit of walking is going to take some serious brain re-training…..some serious slowing down, daily transport planning and generally more…….pacing. Do I have to? I hear myself in whining 8-year old mode. Yes. Because Mummy says so. … Continue reading
