I’ve always known that in this proud land I grew up strong, but that strength has certainly been tested over the years and particularly over the last few months; as I’m sure it has for many people. Yes my strength has been tested by my ME buddy and yes my trip to hell with all … Continue reading Don’t Give Up…
Like many people at the moment, I’m not really sure what this feeling inside me is. The world has been hit by something that no-one knows how to control effectively let alone stop. People are dying; others are extremely poorly and then there are those who feel fine and believe they are invincible. Not going … Continue reading It’s a little bit funny…
We’ve had Christmas time (many of you will have enjoyed the mistletoe and wine I’m sure). We’ve had that weird time in between Christmas and the New Year where life seems to slow down, leftovers and chocolate feature in every meal and the TV is still full of repeats. And now its time to welcome … Continue reading Happy New Year!!!

I used to really love this song (yes I am old enough to remember it, but not quite old enough to remember it being released!) and what its all about.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin. Once upon a time there was a 30 something year old princess who had the world at her feet. She was living life to the full and had many friends and great things going on. Then one day she was struck down by a horrible curse. The curse … Continue reading Fairytale of a Sleeping Beauty
I used to really quite enjoy a Pina Colada as well as getting caught in the rain - now its more just getting caught in the rain that I can enjoy! Alcohol and I used to be friends - good friends. We had some great times together; some not so great times and some times … Continue reading Do you like Pina Colada?
So this is the story all about how, my life got flipped, turned upside down...(some of you will now be finishing the Fresh Prince's rap in your head; for others Google it!). At the start of 2016, life was good. I had helped my oldest friend (in years not age!) celebrate her 40th birthday; been … Continue reading Let’s start at the beginning!
