Hey, It’s Okay To…… At Christmas

I feel guilty having just typed out the title of this blog post. Now, this isn't because I'm lazy or I don't care it's just how I try to cut down on what I deem extras and for you it might be different. So all of the below fit into the It's Okay to __________ … Continue reading Hey, It’s Okay To…… At Christmas

Deck The Halls – New Decorations

A good friend of my family used to take her children every year to chose a decoration for the tree. They had one each and were allowed exactly what they wanted from trucks to elves.

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.

Ambition, Panic and M.E

Do you ever panic that you aren't doing enough with your life? Every September when school starts again I get overwhelmed with the feeling I'm not doing enough and I'm wasting time.

Blogging Through Brain Fog

Ever since I came back from Madeira I have had the most tremendous brain fog. There are so many half ideas dotted around on my phone, iPad and MacBook.
