Losing my get up and go…..

It’s been 6 whole months since we lost dad and life still goes on.  It is like life goes on around you but you are in this strange bubble of grief, not part of the real world. But, we are, I know we are and that is why I know dad wouldn’t want us to…

I didn’t get the chance to tell him I loved him

I have started this several times and then deleted it. I don’t know how to start it and what to say.  This is probably going to be the hardest blog post I have ever written, but I need to write. I need to share my feelings and I know he would want me to carry…

Doing Disney the disabled way….

Is your tired the same as my tired?

It’s not a competition but….. I would like to suggest that your tired is not the same as my tired.  Bold statement? Yep it may well be, but when you say ‘I’m so tired’ spare a thought for little old MS’ers or those with a chronic illness. I am writing this from the sofa under…

Choir Life

I know I have blogged about the choir I sing with before, but for the fear of being boring, I am going to write about it again!! I am writing this off the back of a wonderful show I performed in last night at Cheltenham Town Hall. I am still buzzing from the feeling I…

Everyday life with MS…..oh and THE fall

I say this all of the time but I cannot believe how long it has been since I last wrote. I do have a little bit of an excuse for not writing. I had a fall. A pretty small fall really but with quite big consequences. I was just putting the food delivery away, as…
