How I don't know but YOU DID IT" So many times … Continue reading What I’ve Learnt From 10 Years OF M.E

What’s In My Handbag – Essentials

I'm always thinking about life in the style of "hope for the best, plan for the worst" and that means I like to have a few things in my handbag for when I'm out and about. I have M.E/CFS which makes going out a military manoeuvre in itself so there are some things I take … Continue reading What’s In My Handbag – Essentials

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.

A Letter To The Other Half Of M.E

I was on Instagram and the lovely memyselfand_m.e shared an article from The Mighty.

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

Peace In Dawn

I wrote a blog post once about how dark it can get in between sunset and dawn and how lonely it can be, the worries of your world become loud and with no distractions, you give them your full attention. I didn't publish it because it well, seemed dark. I might need to add I … Continue reading Peace In Dawn

This is ME

I am embarrassingly late to jump on the bandwagon but I managed to watch The Greatest Showman, it was released on DVD here in the UK recently. Baloo and I sat down to watch it, which was a big deal as Baloo is beyond allergic to musicals. I haven't been to the cinema in such … Continue reading This is ME
