Snow Day In The UK

I love snow and get terribly excited when we have it. Living in the UK snow isn't around every winter so I savour the few snow days I might be lucky to have. It is rather ironic that I am freezing cold 95% of the year yet, I love snow. The UK is famous for … Continue reading Snow Day In The UK

False Start City

I had great intentions for the start of this year. I was going to eat better, be more organised and try to fit in the adventures I wanted instead of them being an afterthought. Then my M.E truly kicked in. I was glad to eat anything that didn't make me feel sick, I wasn't moving … Continue reading False Start City

Wanting To Hibernate

I am most certainly in the dreaded post-Christmas Slump whilst the rest of the world seems to be full of ambition, energy and vigour in getting life sorted. I hate this time of year as my health is pants there is always a million things going on and pressure lots of pressure. I turn into … Continue reading Wanting To Hibernate

Baloo and I are slightly different as both of us have M.E, it was how … Continue reading A Letter To The Other Half Of M.E

Needing To Escape

I am a homebody by nature and for me, there is nothing like being in your own quiet oasis. When you have a chronic illness the feeling of choosing to be in your home isn't always there. You can end up with cabin fever, even if it takes months to build up. What do you … Continue reading Needing To Escape

Readdressing The Balance

I know I'm not the first person to have to readdress the balance of trying to stay well but also be a participant of life. I haven't been getting the balance right recently. Most of it has been out of my control, more doctors appointments meetings and family events and just generally trying to keep … Continue reading Readdressing The Balance

See Me Before M.E

"Don't forget, I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." When I watched Notting Hill for the first time, the quote above didn't really impact me. It started to resonate when I got ill. I wanted to have that moment where I became just a girl looking for … Continue reading See Me Before M.E

Starting Closer To Home

Looking closer to home when you are dreaming from your bed of the far of lands David Attenburgh has described might be the most anti-climatic symbolism you could muster. Home can become your prison, as awful as it sounds. You know each of the four walls of a room intimately to the texture of the … Continue reading Starting Closer To Home
