If there was a biography about you, what would the title be? My life has been a rollercoaster, like a dramatic soap opera. I’ve often thought about writing a book but that would only open up old wounds with family and friends. Wounds I am trying to heal or keep sealed. I think though IContinue reading “Love an odd writing prompt”

Bariatric side effect
Not for you, oh no, for your significant other/husband/wife/partner. My husband now complains that he is putting weight on because I’m self conscious about leaving my food if we eat out. It’s true, but I know he’s unhappy about it. When we are out I don’t always want to eat off the starter Menu orContinue reading “Bariatric side effect”
I love how in most countries I have visited, food is always proportionate to protein, fats, carbohydrates. It’s not really like that in the UK, you get jumbo portions of everything. Except the Veg. So I decided not to cook like I’m in the UK anymore. My most recent inspiration is from Turkey Hot platesContinue reading “Food Inspiration”
I havent posted for a while. Six days and it feels like months ago, time goes very slow when you don’t feel your best. Sorry for the last photo! But anyway, after I was discharged I went on an outpatient waiting list. 6-8 weeks. Despite me saying how sick I was on the tube feed.Continue reading “Bariatric Downs…”
My husband has planned a surprise trip! Now I have to pack… Do I take fancy clothes, warm clothes or everything I own? He’s never done this before but said I needed a lift so part of my Christmas present is this. Proper giddy!
Teens need hugs too
Especially mine but on their terms of course. I don’t know what triggers anxiety and panic attacks with me or my teen, sometimes it just happens. Last night around 10.30pm I had a tearful, shaking 16year old rush in, jump in my bed and hug me. I held her close and told her I wasContinue reading “Teens need hugs too”
Such sorrow in Family Values
There was a young man who unfortunately married the wrong woman. He suffered years of abuse and when he found the strength to leave his parents picked up his shattered heart and life and gave him all they had to rebuild his life. They housed him and his children, sharing rooms so they could allContinue reading “Such sorrow in Family Values”
My teen is 16 today! I just wanted to share because even though she drives me crazy and makes me insane, I absolutely love her and am so proud of her. I also tell her this don’t worry I don’t keep it to myself.
I took my teen out today, look round some Christmas decorations, garden centre, hot chocolate and sausage roll. Bought a few special items. I had a lovely time ignoring the sulking from the teen. The whole time. The hating the crowds. The sausage roll is disgusting. The hot chocolate was rank. The shops were boring.Continue reading “Moody teens”
Nordic Light Candle Holder
What reminds you of your Mum? For me it’s this Nordic light candle holder, not because she is Swedish or Nordic although she certainly could be with her green eyes, blonde hair and height; no, because she bought this for me and she loves dragonflys. So every time it’s on, and I see the soContinue reading “Nordic Light Candle Holder”
