Bye-Bye Spontaneity

I’m a control freak! There, I've admitted it.  My husband will be pleased that I have finally done so, he's been teasing me about it for ages.  Have I always been one? I don’t think so.  From what I remember, I used to like things being a bit unpredictable, not quite knowing what can happen,… Continue reading Bye-Bye Spontaneity

Hair Cut Happiness: Why the ‘Little Things’ are so Important

Accept, Adapt, Succeed

How do you get over what life has dealt you, if it’s something that's so bad that sometimes you can’t even bare it? Do you even get over it? I don’t think you do get over it, I think that you learn to adapt to it. MS has challenged the way that I feel about… Continue reading Accept, Adapt, Succeed

Netflix, Crochet and More…

Hi all! Just thought that I would write a quick catch up to to let you all know what I have been up to... which is not very much outside of the usual!  Sometimes that is enough though, right? I am still at work (three days a week) and that pretty much takes it out… Continue reading Netflix, Crochet and More…

Hi everyone!  Hoping that you are all as well as can be and are enjoying these longer days (and the chance to curl up with a hot chocolate!) like I am.  Blogging has been a bit slow due to my relatively recent (August) return to work.  My body is most definitely telling me that I… Continue reading Throwback Thursday; Thinking of the Old Days
