When you are recovering, in need of a pick-me-up or just want to avoid make-up for a while, it’s time to take some breathing lessons
I’m on my second day out of surgery after having a grapefruit-sized fibroid removed from my stomach under general anaesthetic. I’m feeling part relieved, as it’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, but bewildered, too. I’ve got to take it easy, do everything slowly during my recovery – but I’m not used to doing things slowly.
I went for the gentlest sea swim just now, moving my feet in the water like a tired frog. At times like these, I revert right back to my life-affirming comforts and, if you read this column regularly, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with flower power and the benefits of aromatherapy.
