Sunday 19th March – I’m out on the bike for the first time in a while today. Although it is good to be out I do find my mood has sunk in to a bit of a trough again today. This is the rhythm of things of late. I start to climb up and then

17th Mar, 2017

Friday 17th March 2017 – I’ve written, many, many, times about dropping my little boy at school on a Friday and then knowing that I won’t have him for the weekend. It is still such a traumatic experience and I do wonder when it will get easier? When I set off on this RebuildMe journey I had no
