Weekly Update – 21/03/2017

I am so sorry I am late with my weekly update, but am sure you will understand when I explain about the week we have had. I will start off with C, last week started off not too bad, she had her first home tuition session with her tutor on Tuesday, and managed an hour with a couple of breaks.  We honestly thought things were going to get back to a level where she could start to look to the future taking very tiny steps.  How wrong was I, on…

A Guide to the Ideal Italian Holiday

A Guide to the Ideal Italian Holiday

        Italy is well renowned for its varied treasures and historical heritage, and as such each region around the country has its own folklore and cultural character that reflects Italy’s overall diversity in its many forms—from its artistic and architectural wonders imbued with the wisdom of millennia, to the natural habitats and wonderful Mediterranean nature which add to its unique and diverse character. Where to start, when deciding to go on an Italian holiday? There are so many places to see and visit (including secluded spots away…

How we cope with ME/CFS

How we cope with ME/CFS

As regular readers know, my Daughter C is 13 years old and has been living with ME/CFS since new years eve 2015, in those few moments her life changed forever.  I thought as it has been a while since my last full update (apart from my weekly updates where I always mention how C is), it is time to fully update on how we are getting on and just how much all our lives are affected. I have written about what ME/CFS is, and if you are unsure you can…

Hawkers Bar and Brasserie Restaurant Review

Hawkers Bar and Brasserie Restaurant Review

      You may remember last month, we were invited to the launch night of Hawkers Bar and Brasserie in Kingston-upon-Thames, you can read the post here. After the event I was contacted and asked if I would like to review their restaurant and main menu, how could I refuse, so Monday night myself and my Husband headed into Kingston for what hoped to be a lovely night out. On our arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our table, were we were given the drinks menu to…

Mothers Day Gift Guide With Amara

Mothers Day Gift Guide With Amara

            Mothers Day is fast approaching, and the shops are full of gifts, flower shops are preparing for the extra orders and deliveries, and restaurants are advertising special Mothers Day Meals. If like me you have two Mums to buy for my own Mum and my Mother-in-Law, it can get a little stressful trying to find the perfect gift.  Not that they are hard to buy for, as they are both very easy to buy presents for, which of course sometimes makes it harder. I…

Weekly Update – 13/03/2017

It is time again for my weekly update, another week has been and gone.  Is it just me, or are these weeks going far too quickly. As always I will start with C, she has been suffering a bit with all the stress that has been going on lately (will explain a bit more below).  We had our home visit from her tutor and her boss last Tuesday, to see about home tutoring for the time being, until she is well enough to try at school again.  It went really…

My Weekend Away at Gunwarf Quays

My Weekend Away at Gunwarf Quays

  Last weekend myself and my husband packed our bags and set off for a very much needed weekend away, just the two of us. We started our journey on Friday morning leaving our home and heading for the local main line station (we decided not to drive), we then travelled to Portsmouth Harbour, travelling first class.  I will say at this point that my idea of first class is totally different to the train company’s version of first class. As we had just ourselves to worry about, we decided…

Lets Talk Wall Murals

Lets Talk Wall Murals

We have all had to decorate, and spent hours looking at the perfect colour scheme and agonising over wallpaper designs. These days decorating can be made easier with the help of wall murals. I do love to watch tv and films, and am always drawn to how homes have been decorated and also the finishing touches, also the same when visiting people or looking through magazines, and never dreamt I would be able to have anything that I could feel truly happy with.  Now I can, and at affordable prices….
