I’ve been going to physiotherapy for five months now to help me recover from a back operation. Each day I’ve been doing my exercises and it seems I’m making good progress despite my chronic hypochondria. Last week was the first time I’ve been allowed to go back to yoga. Yesterday I moved lots of heavy boxes into storage and today I cycled 46 Kilometres. It’s so great to be getting fit again, especially with summer on the way. I’m reminded never to take good health for granted.
I spent four months living in Mumbai in 2001 making a TV series called Bombay Blush for the BBC. On days off, some of us would head up to Juhu to the Sun and Sea hotel and chill by the beach doing yoga as the sun set. I'd had a pretty rough time over the previous few years and my time in Mumbai helped me heal and move forward again. I have a special affection for Mumbai and was really upset when the news broke of the terrorist attacks in the city. It's weird to think that a bar we regularly used to drink in at the Taj hotel was the scene of so much suffering.
