My agony weekend *Saturday*

Yoga 1-1 cancelled! Sleep to catch up on! 

Slept well into lunch time!…
Well, I not only made it from the bed to the sofa, but I made a smoothie in between! 
At least this isn’t causing me any pain yet! 

The first little bit of goodness inside me since 6am yesterday! That’s excluding the jelly I managed to eat with no pain! πŸ˜‰
Hard to believe that MS can cause so much havoc to the body! 
I shall be resting now, need to be in optimum condition in preparation for my birthday weekend that starts on Thursday! πŸŽ‰

Picture is my own, as are the words used!

Welcome to December!


Welcome to December! ❄⛄
Such a lovey time of the year, call me crazy but I always loved the hustle and bustle of December! Especially when we had our family πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦ shop, which, in its time, turned out to be one of the most popular in the town! 

It was something special when all the family worked together as a team to serve customers as efficiently as possible! πŸ‘›πŸ›
That feeling when you’ve queued in the shops on black Friday πŸ›, you trawled the internet for the best deal on Cyber Monday πŸ’», when you can’t decide whether to treat yourself to a fresh Christmas tree πŸŽ„ and then like every year – decide that you could actually spend that money on the food instead 🍽 and you get the artificial tree out of the loft. 

Next, you sit for an hour or more untangling the lights πŸ’‘ for the tree! 

Static shocks ⚑️whenever you touch anything after handling all the tinsel, that you eventually threw on your tree πŸŽ„

Try not to get stressed 😠 when you end up sticking all your fingers together, as you bravely start wrapping the presents ready🎁 for Santa’s πŸŽ… elves to collect. You’ve made it this far with your sanity intact, keep it that way just a little longer!
Lets skip through any more dramas that may try to own you and fast forward to sitting with the family πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦, surrounded by all that wrapping papehandd invisible sticky tape that got tree so stressed 😑. Now it lies on the floor, torn and screwed up! You got your own back on it! You eventually won that war! πŸ’ͺ
Laughter and love πŸ’— all around you as you sit at the table with your loved ones, a glass of your favourite beverage in your hand 🍷 and the bottle 🍾 at your side! Take a breath and feel proud! πŸ‘Œ
Enjoy this time, don’t let the madness of this month ruin the best time that is still to come!
Happy December everyone! πŸ™πŸ’š

Take a moment and remember what we are living forΒ 

Do you know those days that you have when they just turn out to be so much fun? That was our morning/afternoon when Sarah & I went along to my most favourite Pilates instructor Kate’s class, followed by a lovely pot of tea & a spot of lunch at our favourite eatery with Kate. What made it even more special was DebbieRahRah & the kids being there!

This is what life is about, making memories & capturing them so that if my MS continues to steal my memory I will always have these photos to look back on! 

We all have such busy lives, sometimes we just need to take a moment, forget about the dirty dishes, get with your peoples and remember what we are living for! 

For me it’s laughter, good food and wonderful people! 

So many attempts to get a nice selfie, every picture tells a story

World MS Day 2016

When I was diagnosed with MS I never believed I would feel as happy as I do 6 years on!
I feel proud of who I’ve become & who I am becoming!
Baby steps, many more to take and lessons to learn along the way!
I really am loving this journey even as hard as it is!
Happy World MS Day 2016!

Thank you to all my friends & family for your support & inspiration!
