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! 😉
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! 🎉
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 👩👩👦👦 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! 👛🛍
That feeling when you’ve queued in the shops on black Friday 🛍, you trawled the internet for the best deal on Cyber Monday 💻, when you can’t decide whether to treat yourself to a fresh Christmas tree 🎄 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 💡 for the tree!
Static shocks ⚡️whenever you touch anything after handling all the tinsel, that you eventually threw on your tree 🎄
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 🎅 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 👩👩👧👦, 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! 💪
Laughter and love 💗 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! 👌
Enjoy this time, don’t let the madness of this month ruin the best time that is still to come!
Happy December everyone! 🙏💚
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!
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!
