I also had my 28th birthday. Here is some of the things i have been up to in roughly chronological order.

A few weeks ago we made some changes to my daily routine and they have been really positive. We sort of knew these changes where needed, but getting ill was a good catalyst to get the changes made. This post explores what changes we made and why.
The last few weeks have been very intense. This post tells the story of my recent trip to A&E.
I burnt myself, and this post explains how applying the social model helped me find an effective strategy to keep myself safer in the future.
