I don’t want ordinary, it’s not in my nature!!

The best life

I am doing my very best to live my best life. It’s not always easy but I have learned that I can’t always control all around me but there are certain things I can. Staying compliant with medication and doing my best (not always succeeding) with keeping regular sleep patterns. I think in the pastContinue reading “The best life”


I think we all started 2021 with the great hope, that there was light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccinations would begin to be administered and soon life would become that little bit more normal. It is funny though, even though we are rolling out vaccinations that light seems that little bit further awayContinue reading “Hope”

Live my Best Life

My posts have been really depressing of late but I feel now like I have my big girl pants on. I feel so much better and I have come to the glaringly obvious conclusion that it doesn’t really matter what makes me feel better, me, medication or a combination of both. I have written aboutContinue reading “Live my Best Life”

Be careful

I feel a bit conflicted about my last post. It was good to finally say it all out loud but then there is the judgement that comes with it.

**** off

My life is never not hectic, 3 young kids sees to that but there is good hectic and bad hectic. Christmas and New Year were good hectic. Full on with the kids but lots of fun and laughter made it a great couple of weeks. This week I wouldn’t say it’s a full blown wobbleContinue reading “**** off”

New Year

Not quite sure which adjective to use- do we still say Happy New Year, or will we just say New Year? Had a really good break and for the first time in what feels like a very long time, I was totally switched off and relaxed. I am back exercising again and enjoying getting aContinue reading “New Year”
