So far, so good...

It's been a roller-coaster weekend.

The upside? Walking on the banks of a beautiful river in the sunshine with my lovely hubby, my niece (who's expecting her first child in a few months time) and her very cute dog.

The downside? A lot of travelling and a real scare so some intense stress when I thought I was going to lose my darling Mum (she was very poorly indeed on Saturday).

By Sunday, as a reduction of panic and sweet relief kicked in, I came close (oooh, so very close!) to falling off the low-carb wagon. I wavered, and almost succumbed to the lure of fresh Welsh cakes, but... was saved at the last moment. Phew!

It's also been my first week on Premique (after the switch away from Tibolone) and I'm pleased to say that, on the menopause front, things do already seem to have settled down a bit. I feel more like 'me' again. However, it's very early days and I wasn't expecting much when I got on the scales this morning (my first chance after the weekend) so I had a pretty nice surprise. I'm down a kilo and it feels great!

Onwards, very definitely upwards!

I'm glad you're feeling better. I hope your Mum is on the mend as well.

I'm so sorry you had such a scare, just the thought of losing a lovely Mum... shudder... Mine really is my best friend, its pretty much unimaginable. Well done on staying strong though, and on finding the upside

Thank you both - your kind words really are appreciated.

Mum sounded a lot better last night, so I'm off 'high alert' again... for now.
