Regular followers will already know about Blogtober, as I have taken part for the past two years. For new followers Blogtober is where we write a blog post every day on a different topic each day. The first year I completed the challenge posting daily, last year I had to bow out due to other commitments.
As with last year, day 1 is all about me/ a year on, you can read my post from Blogtober 17 Day 1 here
I am Sam, I have been married to my husband for 16 years and have a 14 year old Daughter. I am also stepmum to two Sons who are now both adults. Both boys have made us grandparents, which is a new role I am loving.
I am also a huge animal lover and have two dogs,who like to think they are both lapdogs. You may remember I also had a cat of 25. Sadly she died last year, I still find it strange and still find myself looking for her.
Many of you will know my Daughter has a chronic illness of severe ME and Fibromyalgia. This past month we have just found out she has another condition called Papilledema which is excess fluid around the brain. This has also been pressing on her optic nerve which has been causing her migraines. She has been through quite a lot this month with two lumbar punctures, resulting in 4 tries both times. This has removed the excess fluid and releaved her constant 24/7 migraines . The change in her has been amazing, and she is now starting tuition in school, as opposed to her bedroom.
I also love home baking, and recently trying out my new halogen oven with some success and some disasters.
I also love to travel, but sadly we have been unable to get away this year.
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for Day 2
