It has been over a year since Jack came into our lives and what a year it has been. Time has flown by! Jack was so timid and nervous the first day he arrived, he hid under the dining room table for a while and took around an hour to get used to me and … More A year with Jack
I want wish everyone a happy new year! 2015 has been an up and down year for my family and I. The upside, moving house, being referred to the leg clinic which have been brilliant in helping me cope with Lipoedema, adopting Jack and making good memories. This year my main aim is to make … More Happy new year!!
I mentioned in previous posts that my family and I adopted our dog, Echo, from Spain two years ago. We had been thinking for a while that we wanted to adopt another dog, to complete our family and for Echo to have a friend to play with. At the end of August we got in … More Meet Jack, our newest family member 🙂
Last month I stated that I was going to start a strict diet to help with my Lipoedema, and I told you I’d give you an update, well I failed! Wow it was so difficult because it’s too restricting. I couldn’t particularly eat meals that I liked at all and it wasn’t very satisfying. There … More Diet plan update
Sorry it has been a while since my last post, I just haven’t got round to posting. We have had my mum come and visit from Spain for the last few weeks so we have been spending family time together. Since my last post we have been mostly trying to renovate the garden, but have … More It’s been a while
Yet another dreary day so we decided to play a game that I had won in a competition I had entered. The game is really aimed for 7+ years but my 5 year old really wanted to play too. The game’s purpose is to test knowledge in a fun way. You lay the pile … More Quizonics Level 2 Review
The summer hasn’t particularly been that sunny in the UK this year has it? Not great when you have kids on their holidays and need to keep them entertained. One of the things the boys likes to do is to create master pieces with salt dough 😀 It’s very cheap and lots of fun! All … More Salt dough fun with the kids.
Yesterday was Echo’s 2 year anniversary with us. He had been through a lot before he got to us and he was only 4 months old at the time. I first spotted him when I was skyping my mum, she lives in Spain with my step dad. Well at the time of skyping they were … More Echo’s 2 Year anniversary
Friday was one of my working days which normally means achy legs. That night my legs were really painful. It was really hot during the day so I didn’t wear my tights to work which I don’t think helped. Usually by the next day they settle down and are fine, but yesterday my legs hurt…. … More Bad day turned tasty!
As in the ‘about’ section I state that this blog is also about our journey and adventures together. I wanted to post about Lipoedema first off so that I can not only raise awareness but when I mention struggles I have, you understand a bit more as to why. I didn’t want to base it … More The boys first Karate lesson
I just want to say a quick thank you to everyone for your support. The response has been absolutely overwhelming! I never expected anyone to particularly take any notice but I’m happy to say that my posts have been seen and shared which means my goal is being met! Thank you so much 🙂
As my friends and family know, I work part time. Two days a week I clean for a holiday resort. It’s a pretty fast paced job as I’m on a tight time limit and I’m on my feet non stop once I start, which is really good as it keeps my legs well circulated … More Achy legs
