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…

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…

February Roundup

February Roundup

Well we are now into March, how quickly did February go, as I was away for the weekend I am doing my monthly update and weekly update in one go. As always I will start with C, she has had a rough month with her illness, she has been in a lot of pain and apart from our trip to the hospital the other week, she has been bed bound, and very ill.  Her hospital appointment went well although they have diagnosed her as having severe CFS rather than just…

My Low Carb Diet

My Low Carb Diet

I mentioned in one of my recent weekly update posts, that I have started a new low carb diet, now usually anything that has the word diet in, and I start off positive and by the end of the week have cheated. Luckily my husband is on board with this, and we are doing this together.  For me one of my biggest downfalls is fresh bread, but coming from a baking family that is hardly a surprise to anyone.  I also suffer with IBS and this has been something I…

Weekly Update -25/02/2017

Another week has passed already, so that means one thing and time for my weekly update, and what a week it has been, it has been a right old rollercoaster ride. I will start off with C, she has been pretty much the same this week, and needed to be around, last Saturday just coming downstairs knocked her out.  We finally had her hospital appointment on Wednesday, we had a nightmare journey getting there and she did so well. The hospital was lovely and so were all the staff, we…

Weekly Update – 18/02/2017

Another week has gone by, and it has been half term here (not that it affects us much at the moment), so it is time for my weekly update.  It has been quite a week, so will apologise now if it is long. I will start off with C, she had a very bad week last week, and this week her legs and pain have been no better, and I have had times when she has tried to get up without me, and ended up on the floor and heard…

It is time for another update, these weeks are flying past, we are in the middle of February already.  It has been very busy here. I will start off with C, things have been very bad for her it is like deja vu to last year, she can not walk, I have to be here to help her up and to the bathroom, she hasn’t even managed the stairs or to come downstairs for over a week, she will try herself and ends up collapsing on the floor, her head…

January Catchup

January Catchup

February is here, we survived January, can you believe it is February already, I swear I blinked and missed it all. January has been an okish month for us, my parents celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary, what an achievement. C has had a tough month, with being in a crash for most of it, and hardly being able to go to school, but it seems that they are all suffering at the moment, so must be the time of year that is affecting them.  We have our appointment with her…

The Reality Of Living With A Teen

The Reality Of Living With A Teen

We all know I have two teens living in my house, my Daughter C who is 13 and my stepson Shaun who is 18, so I thought I would do a little post about the reality of living with a teen in the house. We all think that toddlers are the hardest age, let me tell you that is not the case, teens are the hardest age so far and I am going to give you a few reasons why. I am not going to talk about C, as due…
