My Relationship isn’t 50/50

This doesn’t bother me in a way that I’m fixated upon it, but it is something in the back of my mind; especially with regards to how outsiders view things. My relationship with my boyfriend, Ian, isn’t 50/50, it’s not equal. What I mean is, he does absolutely everything. It seems like his whole being is consumed...

For Mum…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM! I’m dedicating this post to the superwoman that is my Mother. It’s her birthday today so I thought what better time to acknowledge how amazing she is and thank her for everything she does for me.  I wasn’t the easiest child to bring up, I was an angel (obviously), but when I...

Wheelchair Essentials

Today is International Wheelchair Day and I thought I’d share some essentials for when you’re out and about in your wheelchair.I use my manual chair (soon to be powerchair as I’m ordering it today, yay) every time I go out and didn’t realise just how cold it can get sitting in a chair on days...

Best Friend Because

I’m dedicating this post to my best friend, my soul mate, the male equivalent of me, my darling John. We’ve been friends since secondary school, it’s been about sixteen years, which makes me feel old, but I’m so glad we were sat next to each other all those years ago in English class. Nice one,...

A Day In The Life: Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

This week it’s Hypermobility Syndromes Awareness Week #HMSAware and obviously it’s really important to me as I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type 3. What many people don’t realise is that the HMSA (a bloody amazing charity) take all hypermobility syndromes into account, not just EDS, and it’s vital that the other hypermobility syndromes get enough attention...

Open Letter to Train Passengers

I don’t use public transport that often. I have a car and I don’t mind driving but if I have to do a lot of driving in one day, I’m absolutely screwed, I have a flare-up that can last days, if not weeks and then I’m an irritable bitch. Unfortunately, Ian can’t drive so I...

Personal: To the Sperm Donor

Weren’t we adorable? I share pretty much everything on my blog, it’s my space, I write what I want, and I’m lucky enough to have a readership that appreciate my honesty. But this one is a little different; I won’t be regaling ridiculous things I’ve said due to brain fog, or telling you about how...

Yankee Candle Haul

In Nottingham a few weeks ago, I took full advantage of the Yankee Candle store, as you can tell. I always buy the sample sizes before purchasing a large jar so I can test out how they burn and whether I like the scent; I then head straight over eBay and buy the large jars...

Life Update #2 We have a House

Hey, guess what? WE HAVE A HOUSE!!! First off let me apologise for not posting on Friday, I don’t like missing/changing schedule as I’m a stickler for a routine, but I’ve had a completely justifiable reason. A week ago, Ian and I got the keys to our new house and we’ve been so busy getting...
