During my rehabilitation I stopped working, however, I did record a couple of podcasts. Forgive my crowing but both shows are a treat! Maybe that's because I was the nice side of the operation and therefore euphoric....or maybe it's the medication. What happens is all sorts of half formed thoughts fly from my mouth and the lovely people I do the shows with work their magic. I hope you enjoy them.
BBC Ouch (59 mins)
- losing it with 'I live in a bucket' news story
- when the little voice in your head is Louis Walsh
- that some wear a badge to say they need help whilst others (like me) are offered help all the time

If you've read this far, thank you. As well as the euphoria of being alive post op, I've also been a bit melancholy which I guess is natural. One way I 'enjoy' the downside is to listen to sappy music. I'm old enough to remember this when it came out and I still think it is a belter of a song. Surely we all can relate to the lyrics, about someone you once loved. So here it is, Air Supply's All Out of Love. Turn it up loud!
