Getting the facts 

By | February 16, 2017

Beware, this might turn into a rant! I’ve been having to have monthly blood tests to check my liver function as I’m been on some totally yucky tablets for my nails.  They work though but, as getting blood out of me is troublesome, it’s not been pleasant. So, last week I went along and also […]

Feeling better from within with Viviscal 

By | July 29, 2015

This isn’t a post I’ve been asked to write, nor have I received any free products – which is a shame because Viviscal isn’t cheap, but I know it will help me. In January 2014, I managed to damage all the nails on my right hand during the assembling of a trampoline.  Yes, I know […]

Worried – Sun 19th July 2015

By | July 19, 2015

I’ve been grateful for my little daily “happy” pill today, but it hasn’t stopped my stomach churning and twisting over a few things. I guess, without my “happy” pill, I’d have had a cry or two so that’s something, that I still have them.  I did talk with my doctor last week about having one […]

Not Fading To Grey – Sat 11th July 2015

By | July 11, 2015

What a strange title you might think. My little niggles about my wellbeing have become larger.  I’ve cried today and I haven’t done that in ages. The timing of afore-mentioned niggles couldn’t be worse because, with the school holidays looming, I need to see my doctor this week – or it will be September. Google […]

Wellbeing and me – Weds 27th May 2015

By | May 27, 2015

It’s been another relaxed day here, so I’m going to go off track a bit and update on my wellbeing – something a bit overdue. Those who’ve read my posts for a while, will remember that towards the end of 2014 I was feeling very down and exhausted.  The last few years of school battles, […]

Dolce The Ulcer #Prose4T

By | May 9, 2015

For those who regularly read my blogs (and thank you if you do), you’ll know that this is a pesky topic this week. The “thing” now has a name as that seems to make it easier to deal with and I’m not so much honouring it with a piece of prose, but inviting it to […]

Chocolate and me

By | May 1, 2015

Oh, I have had a long relationship with all things chocolate.  Yum yum. It probably (most definitely) started in childhood.  My parents went through a bitter divorce when I was 9 and we were “rewarded” for good behaviour not with praise, but a choccy treat.  It was therefore very easy to associate the feeling of […]

Smile – At Last #R2BC #WOTW

By | April 9, 2015

Smiling, it should be easy, right?  When a baby is born, people are desperate to see that first gummy smile, even though it may be down to wind. A smile defines you, it sends a message out to other people that you’re friendly, that you can be approached, that it’s okay. But what if someone […]

Tagged – My Highs and Lows of 2014

By | December 31, 2014

I have been tagged by the wonderful Kate at to think about and write down my highs and lows of 2014, something I was thinking about doing as the last day of the year is a good time for reflection but Kate’s tag couldn’t have come at a better time. Here’s why: As part […]

Blog Me Better – Sun 14th Dec 2014

By | December 14, 2014

Life as a SN parent can be challenging and dare I say it, isolating too. Isolating because it’s difficult to find those other parents/carers who “get” what life is like. Who “get” that outings have to be planned, that if your child is lucky enough to be invited to a birthday party, then along comes […]
