  • Pardon Me

    Pardon Me

    I am officially now one those angry women with coloured hair who will destroy the sanctity of discourse with radical ideas that are clearly inflammatory and dangerous. I couldn't be happier, frankly. — 🌳 Sarah Reeson 🍀 Exposed Frailties 🌳 (@MoveablePress) January 27, 2020 I have gone Full Ariel with the hair dye. Should this […]

  • Down Down

    Down Down

    Gunky finger sorted. I really need some food, then we'll do things. However, before we proceed… pic.twitter.com/GkmMbDHBLa — 🗿 Sarah Reeson 🗿 Unexpected Metaphor 🗿 (@MoveablePress) January 15, 2020 Undoubtedly, exercising every day is a contributing factor to this change. However, it is not the only way I am losing weight. There is some quite […]

  • Comfortably Numb

    There’s a lot of other shit going down today but honestly, this is the bit that matters most. My weight issues aren’t fat. I’ve gained nearly 6kg (thirteen pounds) of muscle mass. All that eating protein works. I’ll be back tomorrow. For now, it’s probably time for a healthy snack.

  • Breathe


    I went to bed fine. I have NO IDEA what happened between that point and 2am, but waking up with an inability to lie horizontally without feeling I was drowning in my own lungs was not ideal. Shifting to the sofa so the rest of the house was not woken up by coughing meant there was […]

  • Ride on Time

    Ride on Time

    My husband is a member of British Cycling, and last night printed the first page of a PDF file that he was directed to as part of his membership package. This details an eight week Sofa to 50k Bike Ride training programme. Mr Alt has just handed me a British Cycling sofa to 50km eight […]

  • Getting Better

    Getting Better

    I went to bed last night at 8.30pm. I read, and then I slept in fits and starts all night. I got up an hour after my Fitbit tells me I woke up, and have been working ever since. The left ear is a bit bunged up, left side of my throat is sore and […]

  • This is the Day

    This is the Day

    Once this is written, I’ll be off to the Gym, for my first ‘serious’ hit at exercise since the Operation. Considering how much sleep I managed? YES I WILL TAKE THIS pic.twitter.com/A0P65YmQyS — 🌊 Sarah 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) May 26, 2017 When I say ‘serious’ I am well aware I cannot go back to the level […]

  • Iconography


    I’ve been stealth writing stuff all weekend, since Thursday night, mostly because I don’t want to bore people with braindumps that means a great deal to me but not much to them. A friend told me I am perfectly within my rights to own my trauma, but there comes a point where the weight between […]

  • Consider Her Ways

    Consider Her Ways

    Normally my blog posts are named after songs. Today, I’m taking a book, one that was particularly significant in my youth. I remember being astounded by the main story in John Wyndham’s anthology and it having a profound effect for weeks after reading: I can’t really tell you anything about it either, because by doing […]

  • There There

    There There

    This week has been tough. Mentally I’ve coped pretty well but physically, my digestive system is a mess. Having to lose what I’ve become reliant on in terms of high fat foods was a wrench my body initially wasn’t at all happy about. However, a week in and I’m beginning to cope. The other major […]
