The Missing Year

Well hello there! Long time no see.

I've written and rewritten this post several times as I've tried to figure out what it is I want to say after such a long absence .

Around this time last year our second child was born after a difficult and traumatic pregnancy, including me spending the last trimester away from my family as an inpatient in the local hospital. Our baby was born premature and then caught a very serious infection after coming home and ended up back in ICU. We're lucky that they are doing well now and things are much more settled for our whole family but I have spent the last year just being happy that we are all together and, frankly, not thinking very much about my arthritis or cooking.

A  few weeks ago though I couldn't remember the recipe for one of my favourite meals (this one) and ended up looking it up on the blog. I started browsing all the recipes I have posted over the years and muttering to myself that I could do better. At around the same time, my arthritis has started grumbling - I'm long overdue going back on medication and chasing after two small children takes its toll. So this is my tentative step back into the kitchen - and back to 'Cooking with Arthur'.
