# April Roundup
>[!example] 02 May 2023 #blog
Each month I will be sharing a round-up of what I have been working on, what I've published (in case you've missed anything) and any extra bits and pieces that you may be interested in.
I've had an extremely busy month completing Admin tasks which means that my writing has been put on the back burner a little. But on the plus side, it has allowed me to spend some time updating old posts and adding them to the site. These include:
- [[Letting Go of the Guilt]]: Understanding the functional problem of care tasks
- [[The Very Ordinariness of My Remains Will Make Me an Excellent Silent Teacher]]: Sue Black's thoughts about donating her body after she dies.
- [[The Fundamental Interconnectedness of All Things]]: Seeing the solution to each problem as being detectable in the pattern and web of the whole
- [[No, I Am NOT a Physio!]]: My response to a disrespectful comment I previously received.
- [[All the Things That Can Go Right During and After Menopause]]: Despite all the negatives of menopause & perimenopause, there really are so many positives too.
- [[A Caffeine Copycat]]: The similarities between oestrogen and caffeine.
- [[Perimenopause Is Like Climate Change]]: How changes to my cycle feel like experiencing all four seasons in a single day.
- [[Tennis Ball Self-Massage]]: A cheap and effective way to release tension in your body (tools from my own personal recovery tool-kit)
## Exercise Database
In addition I have been updating and adding old biomechanics and therapy exercise videos to the site (there are still many more to come). Although I am no longer practicing I still find myself referring friends and family to these videos all the time which is why I need them handy. I also know many of you came to know me as ‘The Body Mechanic’. These are reminders of the 'homework' that I gave out over the years, homework which helped so many of my clients.
