This week Superdrug have relaunched their charity campaign #FeelSuper in partnership with Protor And Gamble to raise £500,000 for Marie Curie.  On Tuesday I went to London to the press launch for the campaign which singer Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays is heading.  Until 17 October every purchase of a Proctor And Gamble product from Superdrug will trigger a donation to Marie Curie. “This is a really special charity which I’ve supported for many years and I’m very excited to be working with Marie Curie again through the #FeelSuper campaign. What I love about the campaign is that it’s so easy to… View Post

There was a time when I would do some form of crafting every day. My go to crafts used to be crochet or scrapbooking. The past 18 months/2 years these has all changed. Life just got hectic and my health deteriorated.  By the time I got home from work and did all the little jobs that needed doing I was just too physically and mentally worn out to do anything but go to bed.  Having chronic pain from fibromyalgia had a huge impact on my life.

Life was turned upside down for me a few months ago. It really hurt at the time and if I’m being honest it still hurts now.

I actually fainted on Thursday. At the time I thought nothing of it. Got up and dusted myself down. However, come Friday morning I really knew I had fainted. The base of my back hurt… View Post

Yes, I’ve been missing from my blog this past month but I’ve not been in action at all. At the end of April I was sent to a surgical assessment ward at my local hospital by my GP. What happened next was bizarre. It’s something I’m still processing in my own head which I need to do before I can share with others. Things as they say went pear shaped and rather serious things happened. It’s now the last day of May and I’m still here in hospital. I hope I’ve passed the turning point but after a little hiccup… View Post
