What have I been up to…

And just like that, my Level 4 Diploma is (hopefully) complete and I patiently await the news of whether I have passed. This began at the start of 2022 and it has not been the easiest of qualifications to try and navigate while weaving around other areas of my life and work. I do not yet feel... Continue Reading →

A Confession

This is my fifth attempt at writing the opening of this post, which is somewhat upsetting considering what I mean from the title. The point is, I decided a couple of months ago that I would attempt a project. An idea I have had for some research, a very widespread and ambitious piece of research... Continue Reading →

Dead Good (Or Something Like That)

I have hosted a huge number of Death Cafe events, seen them into and through the pandemic, and assisted with the switch from in person meets to online. I have met so many people through the incredible and powerful way in which death cafe allows people to discuss topics which may have felt uncomfortable or... Continue Reading →


I've always thought it quite funny how when someone shivers, especially if particularly violently, they will declare that someone must have walked over their grave. I remember imagining as a kid that there was this green space somewhere just waiting to be used as a burial plot, maybe even with a blank headstone just itching... Continue Reading →

Feverish Me Started a Blog Post

December (possibly?) 2022 In a break away from my normal content, although in typing that I'm not sure what that would be perceived to be, I want to delve into something which has been haunting my thoughts. Yes, I've been feverish with the latest influenza strain to hit the London streets and I admit this... Continue Reading →

I Made It Through 2022

My website host has today greeted me with a prompt that for once I think I will keep and use. It asked of me this morning, what big life events have happened to you in 2022? As someone who has recently been rather lacking in and desperately searching for some kind of creative spark or... Continue Reading →

Death At Disney

If you follow me on social media, you’ll know I recently spent a few days at Disneyland Paris for Halloween. This is something I have dreamed of for many years, and that my dear friend LT made possible by her supreme organisation skills. All I had to do was turn up with my bag and... Continue Reading →

Mortuary Regulation – My Thoughts

All medical doctors practicing within the UK need to be General Medical Council (GMC) registered. This means that if they come under investigation or are proven to have behaved in a way deemed to be misconduct they can be suspended or ultimately taken off this register, and therefore are unable to practice any longer. This... Continue Reading →

Wandering Thoughts

Note-written Friday 23rd September, have since left Liverpool! Every year it seems that the season changes, the children go back to school and I start to become very busy. I don't just become busy, but I also start to get the need to travel and wander. I'm writing this from a hotel room in the... Continue Reading →

Wellbeing and Being Well

Wellbeing and self care have felt like buzzwords in many ways of recent times. I have no doubt that many companies and brands have capitalised on this to sell products, like with any recognised trend or need within the population. However, I truly believe there is more to this than meditation apps and clay mud... Continue Reading →
