At pain of revisiting a topic two weeks in a row, I apologise in advance but I just had to share the developments of the last week.

Who could have known that so many people suffer from vertigo or know people whose lives are affected by this annoying condition reportedly triggered by a middle ear infection? The vertigo 'vortex' as one correspondent with me so correctly described it wipes your confidence and leaves you feeling uncharacteristically vulnerable and 'precious' about yourself.

Last year I got rightly slagged on TV for boasting in my excitement of becoming a grandmother - how the world was my oyster and my vista was an open road now that the parenting years were done. I should have known better and I most certainly won't be doing that again.
