Sleep well Syd.

Nobody prepares you for the loss of a pet and even though I knew it would come and I knew it would be difficult, I never knew just how difficult it would be. The whole thing is difficult, from knowing they are in pain and there is nothing you can do to seeing the whole…

Unknown & invisible.

I have only spoken about this briefly before, the unknown medical problem I have, which seems to come and go as it pleases. I have been struggling with this for years now, only recently with each flare up I have it gets worse. My symptoms are far too long to list and Drs have and…

What happens when I eat gluten?

I have been asked this so many times, it seems people are genuinely interested in my bodies annoying reaction to gluten. This post is not for those who believe in too much information, who are more than happy to read and maybe even talk about bodily functions. Something I think we should all do a…

Posting a little love.

If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know just how much I love letter writing. I grew up writing to pen-pals I had met on holidays and family members who lived a far, each letter brought me a sense of warmth. Of course, like most, as I grew up and…

For my birthday outing my friend Rosie and I decided to visit the Emma Bridgewater Factory, is there any better way to spend your twenty-fifth birthday than by drinking tea and painting pots with your best friend? I think not. Rosie has visited the factory before but only ever to visit the shop, this was…

Journal days, ‘will you be my maid of honour?’ & turning 25.

I have been enjoying writing and sharing these ‘journal’ style posts, especially when I am going through the not so good days, writing has always allowed me to see things in a different light, I guess taking time to notice the positive moments a little more than I would do with that oh so grey…

Twenty-five.

So, next week I turn twenty-five and as I am sure most twenty-five year olds will agree, this comes with many feelings, or perhaps this is just me? The ‘this is not where I should be’, ‘what have I accomplished?’, ‘who am I?’. The usual ‘could have, should have, would have’.. so, in a slightly,…
