So this happened today

2

I have been growing my hair for the last 2 years and got it the longest its been since i was about 12.

I had a throwback photo come up on my facebook memories a couple weeks ago and it was me with super short hair. I saved the pic to my phone and went back to it a few times to admire it. It really did used to suit me. Could i pull it off again?

My hair today went from this length…

Then put in pigtails and snipped off.

A whole ten inches. I have decided to donate it to the little princess trust to help them to make a wig for children with cancer. It’s such a worthy cause.

Here’s my new hair do courtesy of my sister – who also happens to be a hairdresser.

It’s one thing i can add to my random act of kindness list 💕

What’s a random act of kindness you’ve done?

Its too bloody hot

0

For someone who is always freezing cold as i suffer with poor circulation, its uncomfortably hot.

We are so lucky at the moment that us English are having this heatwave, as we rarely have a good summer…maybe a few days and that’s it

Hands up who really wants a spot of rain or a storm to break it up?

I know i bloody do.

It’s like as soon as the weather changes you go off eating normal meals and just snack or have salads or barbeque food. The alcohol gets consumed more to cool you down and because you can enjoy a beer garden somewhere.

I guess we shouldn’t moan and just appreciate good weather when we have it.

I’m sorry my blog posts have been a bit hit and miss at the moment I promise once it cools down I’ll be back into the swing of it

Stay safe in the sun

Dear Music

Dear Music,

Thank you for always clearing my head, healing my heart and lifting my spirits.

There are times in life when a lyric in a song can pinpoint exactly how you’re feeling or describe a person to a T.

There are the songs that you can listen to that clear all the unwanted rubbish in your head.

That playlist you know will mend your broken heart. The hurt will stop hurting so much the more you listen to these songs.

Then comes the tunes that perk you up no ends that you listen to endlessly to get you pumped up and ready for pretty much anything.

Music you always know how to make things better.

Thank you xxx

A Health Update 

3

Because illness has become a very big part of my life. I can’t just ignore the fact that life has changed for me big time. Before I would wake up and think what can I do today? Now I wake up and the first thing I think of, are my legs. 

Since the last update I have been in hospital again. Luckily they let me home the next day, as my really good friend lent me a single bed and the occupational therapist gave us enough mobility aids to start a shop. So my bedroom is now in the living room.


My legs are in paralysis 90% of the time so they are pretty useless. So it’s from the bed to the wheelchair and then back to bed with the help of mum and a couple aids too.

It’s hard as hell, I tell you.

If you look back at my blog in July – talking about walking miles around the city before watching our musical, that was literally 2 months ago. Now I can barely walk a yard.

Most of the time I’m extremely positive,  as I think it’s better than wallowing in something that can’t be helped. There is the odd day where all I do is cry. But hey I’m only human.


Until I have an appointment come through for the specialist I just have to plod on the best I can.

All this I couldn’t do without my wonderful mum and also the brilliant support of my friends too.

It’s 2 in the morning as I’m writing this I just can’t sleep. I find writing therapeutic so I thought why not do an update.

September Favourites 

3

As September ends it’s time to reflect on the things the past month has bought me happiness so here goes…

Goodbye flip flops Hello Boots 

I found 3 out of the 4 boots below in the charity shop. The most expensive being £7.99 and I am absolutely awful at walking in heels so when I spotted the wedges my eyes lit up. The third pair down are from Deichman and were £19.99. They are a replacement from last years. Yes I also love suede if you hadn’t guessed.

Primark Autumnal wear

I generally just wear black, pink or leopard print but I thought I would switch it up a gear and go for some different colours. First is this Burgundy cut out on the shoulder cropped jumper I usually put a little black strappy top on underneath so I am not baring no skin.

Next is this khaki coloured quite basic long sleeved ribbed top with a bit of lacing done along the chest area which gives it a bit of an edge. Both of these tops were £8 and I team them up with the skinnys below.

High waisted skinny jeans £13 each pair and they have stretch in them too which allows a bit of what you fancy and still have moving roomdsc01594dsc01595dsc01596
