Birthdays and Besties

Recently I wrote a post about my birthday and how it didn’t exactly go to plan. It was nobody’s fault at all, it was just one of those days where things kept happening. Luckily though I had another birthday do to fall back on. I went out for a meal with my friends. We went…

OFCD Syndrome

All my life I have had to deal with hospitals, appointments and tests, it’s just the way life is. In some ways I feel it has made me stronger. I don’t freak out over the tiniest needle or worry myself sick over routine check ups. There has never been a stage in my life where…

Making Assumptions and First Impressions

You really don’t know what damage you are doing to yourself. Yes this is a drinking lecture, but it’s not just any…

Trampolining (and visually impaired)

At school many years ago now PE was definitely not my thing. Cold, wet, shorts, losing at everything, hated it. I think we stuck in one activity for half a term and then moved on to something else. So I would have weeks on end of dreading PE. When it was our turn to use…

This is me

Hello blog world! You may have seen me around before but this is my first ever very own blog! I have blogged for other people in the past and I still will. But sometimes everything has to fit into a box, or follow a certain theme. Sometimes I don’t want to fit into a box,…
