When 3 Become 4

When 3 Become 4

Before you all start getting excited, no I am not pregnant.  But we do have an extra child living with us now, my 18 year old stepson.  It all happened very quickly but he has been here a week now. As you can imagine things have been quite hectic with sorting him out and sorting his room etc,as well as dealing with C. She is still no better and we have been unable to go out and enjoy the lovely weather we have been having.  I have been struggling with…

Dreams

Dreams

Dreams – we all have them, every night when we go to sleep we dream, sometimes we remember them vividly and other times we just can not remember our dreams at all. I am usually one of those people that fall asleep very easily and wake up in the morning, and mostly think I have never dreamt all night.  But lately, I have been waking in the night, due to various reasons and I have been dreaming, mostly I can remember the dream, but not vividly enough to be able…

Divorce In Numbers

Divorce In Numbers

We have all probably experienced divorce at some stage in our lives, whether it be ourselves, family or friends. Divorces fall into two categories for me, the first the amicable divorce where you both just agree you no longer want to be married and agree to split everthing evenly and move on. Or there is the battlefield, this is the one I know well.  I have been through a divorce (I will be polite and say him, and not my usual term of phrase).  Although it was all his doing, I…

Illumibowl Toilet Nightlight Review and Giveaway

Have you heard about the Illumibowl Toilet Nightlight, it is such a great idea, it is the first toilet night light. It is a small device that fits onto the side of your toilet and acts like a nightlight, so if you get up in the night, instead of turning on the light on you just lift up your toilet seat and the illumibowl will do its thing and light up. It is such a simple idea, but so effective, you just use the suction pads to stick to the…

Phobias

Phobias

If you read my Getting to know the real me – the answers post (you can find it here), you will see that in one of my answers I said I had no desire to get over my phobia of spiders. So I thought I would tell you a little story about what happened to me on Saturday. My husband was doing a photography job for charity at a car show, it was local to us and as I needed the car, I dropped him off, so I could go…

#PlayMore Pledge

#PlayMore Pledge

As you will all know by now, I am a huge animal lover, I have written about my pets a few times, and also sharing about Max who is my rescue baby, and came to his forever home with us.I was recently contacted, and asked if I would like to take part in the #PlayMore Pledge, where you pledge to play with your dog for an extra 15 minutes a day.  Which is not a hardship for me with two dogs one of them always wants to have a play….

Bring Out The Branston

Bring Out The Branston

I was very lucky recently, to be sent a package containing Branston pickles.  If you are like me, you  will always have a jar of pickle in your cupboard. The box contained a lunchbag with ‘Bring Out The Branston’, always very handy for keeping things cool, Branston Original Pickle, new Branson Sweet Chilli Pickle, Branston Caramelised Onion Chutney, new Branston Rich & Smokey BBQ Sauce and Branston Hot Dog Relish. I will start with the Branston Original Pickle, this really needs no introduction.  I love boring old cheese and pickle…

Goodbye July – Hello August

Goodbye July – Hello August

Wow another month has gone by and I have just realised I have not updated for a while. We are now in the summer holidays and the school year has ended, unfortunately C has not managed school for a long time now.  I had a meeting a couple of weeks before school finished, and a plan has been put in place for September.  So fingers crossed we can slowly try to get her back into school. After talking to a lot of parents with children with ME/CFS, I had constant…
