..the next chapter.

As I've said on the BBC Food website,it's been a while since I posted anything on here.

I'm off work again as it seems that my titanium implants aren't working to solve my back problem. In fact one of them appears to be on the move and causing me quite a bit of pain.I'm hoping to get back 'fusion' surgery before Christmas but with the NHS waiting lists,who knows?

This afternoon I'm going to attempt to make some cupcakes as requested by my 3 year old son Leo(ASBO).If I have time I may try and get and make some peanut butter cookies.

Wish me luck.

I can't believe where the time has gone. I started this blog whilst trying to come to terms which a nasty back injury which limited things I could do on a daily basis.
It's been a while since I blogged at all until I saw Paul's new blog which was advertised on the BBC Food Messageboard and now I'm a follower.
I had my operation 4 days ago on Tuesday 9th February and although I think I may have turned the corner,the pain is still excrutiating as I'm trying not to get too dependent on the morphine.
The actual cooking of food will have to take a back seat for a while as I'm not allowed to lift anything but I'll still be active and annoying on the Food Messageboard as I tend to be a bit opinionated.

Anyone that's reading this that has a love of cooking will know how frustrated I feel not being able to do anything and just walking into MY kitchen and seeing a worktop with crumbs on. It's driving me mad.

If you're at all interested I'll try and cut and paste a diagram of the finished surgery which will show 1 of the 2 implants that I have.
