Some Anniversaries

 So here we are at the end of January 2021,  just over two years since I started this blog and three  years since I stopped hiding behind the mask of 'that boy'.  so what's changed? we'll ignore Covid for the moment...  2019 and  the start of 2020 saw  significant improvements and progress with  ballet   'that boy' is just a distant memory now... And, finally the NHS is catching up, as  barring any disasters I have an appointment with the GIC next week for them to fully take over my care and in due course progress to referral to 'lower surgery'...
