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

2019 Favourites So Far

I have a few things to share with you that I'm loving right now. Books Now I know it isn't Christmas anymore but I had to recommend 'The … Continue reading 2019 Favourites So Far

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

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

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
