A new beginning

First some bad news. Mrs F's mum had a fall in the local shopping centre on Thursday and has broken her arm, shoulder and knee! She doesn't do it by halves does she. It is Sunday morning and she is in surgery now on at least the shoulder the knee may need an op too. The rehab etc will be a long time and issue given she lives in house so bathroom etc all upstairs.

Anyhow some good news. I have been accepted onto a counselling course starting in Sept. This is the new direction I am planning to go in. At the end of this month I'm going to reduce to 2 days a week at the uni. So one day at the course centre then look for some voluntary work to start with where I can hopefully look to apply the new skills I'll be learning.

I went to an open day at the centre yesterday and met some current students all of which confirmed to me that I am making the right decision on course and centre.


  1. Congratulations! This seems a wonderful direction for you - we've not met in person, but you are so passionate about recovery, and owning your own demons... Looking forward to hearing of your new adventures!

    Best wishes to Mother of Mrs. Furtheron...

  2. What fabulous news about the counseling course! Very exciting and, I think, will be a good fit for you. Congrats!

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about Mrs. F's mom. I am hoping for a speedy recovery.

    I am loving the news about you taking a course for counseling. You are a natural and you have such a desire to help others, I think it's perfect!! Best of luck to you.

  4. So happy to hear about your new adventure! A little envious as well because I couldn't even think about doing that right now but I'd love to - you're going to be fabulous! I'm so excited for you!

    Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. I remember when my mom fell and shattered her knee. She lived with us at the time so rehab was a little easier but it was still tough. Good luck - I'll say a quick prayer for her speedy recovery.


  5. Brilliant--I know you've had misgivings about your job for a while so this sounds a step in the right direction.
