Where've you been?

It's been a hard few weeks for me; winter always hates my body (as does summer)  and it just makes me want to hibernate. In honesty I've barely left the house for a month apart from to visit family and to go to hospital appointments and it's given me time to give myself some much needed self care. I've been doing more of what I love though, I've spent some wonderful days with my little niece, Ella. It's such a joy to watch her grow and she keeps me going. I'm learning to play the ukulele, it's tough for someone with dyspraxia and arthritis but hopefully practice will make perfect. And more importantly, I'm listening to my body. I'm steadily putting weight on and starting to love food and cooking again.

I've struggled for a long time with who I am and my place in the world and while I still don't have that figured out, I'm getting there. Posting is going to be a bit sporadic for a while as I'm feeling a bit disassociated with blogging, and honestly that's nobodies fault but my own. I have a few fun Christmas posts coming up from some lovely brands though. And in the meantime please check out my piece on Hellogiggles- What Selena Gomez taught me about my own illness. I'm so proud of it as it's my first big piece of writing to be published!

I wanted to end this post by reminding you all that it's OK to take time out for yourself, you can't always be expected to look after everyone else when you're falling apart yourself.
