I’ve mixed feelings about New Year and find it often happens with a sense of unfulfilled expectation. Despite this I feel it’s a useful time to reflect and an opportunity to begin again and a new start to another year.
I filmed this late on Christmas eve last year (after a few glasses of wine – hence the tinsel and flower) and it’s interesting to watch now. Although I’m making progress in the right direction, 2021 has been a struggle mentally and physically – after two operations and five hospital consultants I’ve felt the strain.
Looking forward to getting stuck in again next year so a Happy New Year to you all. Here’s hoping for a productive, healthy, Covid-free year ahead.
My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand.
It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...

You mention a kinder year. I’ve never been a hopeful type of person, rather cynical, pragmatic to an exacting degree, emotional to an extreme degree (especially for a more-than-grown-up man). I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Yet, I find a way. But for you, I wish a “kinder” 2022.
Thanks – thinking about it perhaps my reference to a ‘kinder year’ is to the emotional and physical pain I’ve experienced and also to Covid and all that that has inflicted not just on myself but many others. I feel there’s always a certain amount of difficulty in life that comes to a greater or lesser extent at different times but for me the perceived ‘quota’ has gone off the scale over the last two years and left me hoping for some sort of respite or return to norm (we shall see). And I’ve traits I’d swap in an instant that challenge me daily and although I try to be fairly positive on my blog I struggle to find my way too sometimes. Perhaps a less problematic, healthier, Covid-free 2022 will be of help. Hope your journey this year is a good one too : )
