Day Twenty Two – Things We Forgot

Things we forgot. Visit http://thingsweforget.blogspot.com/ and make your own version of a short memo reminder. Where would you post it? It was the series 6 opener of Russell Howard’s Good News that inspired this.. “Why not me?” I had never considered this fact when it came to my Crohn’s. In fact, in aspect of my life, why did it happen to…


Inspired; Day Seventeen

talereader wrote this great post on HAWMC day 17. These sentences really struck a chord with me: “The world doesn’t open up to you just because you’re different.” “It’s not that I was ever looking for special attention. I just wanted HELP. I wanted help in order to be at the same level as everyone else.” It is very hard…


Day Nineteen – 5 Dinner Guests

5 dinner guests. Who are 5 people you’d love to have dinner with (living or deceased) and why? – The wonderful Sara Ringer; she is possibly the most knowledgeable Crohnie I know. And she’s so far away! – The lovely John Bradley; we could take Foul Bowel and finally talk about Canada / Birmingham. – My lovely Lichfield boys. We…


Day Eighteen – Open a Book

  “I’d never been mad about my body.” Well, its true, I’d never been crazy about my body. I was a tiny, flat chested teenager until the middle of my 4 year at secondary school and I “blossomed”. It is a slight understatement. They just happened. And I was embarrassed by them. They were very noticeable. They looked silly on my 5”2…


Day Seventeen – Learnt the Hard Way

  Learnt the hard way. Whats a lesson you learned the hard way? Write about it for 15 today. Sometimes, people are just arseholes. I learnt this a particularly hard way at New Years, and pretty much every couple weeks since, but I have been strong enough to just leave it be, nowadays. My friend N came to see me…


Day Fifteen – Writing with Style

Writing with Style. What is your writing style? Do words just flow from your mind to your fingertips? Do you like handwriting first? Do you plan your posts? Title first or last? Where do you write best? 9 times out of 10, the words come to me from just sitting here, at my desk on my laptop. More often of…


Day Fourteen – My Dream Day

My Dream Day. Describe your ideal day. How would you spend your time? Who would you spend it with? Have you had this day? If not – how could you make it happen? I used to hate all the time I spent confined to my bed while in hospital and on sick leave from work. It was the longest (and shortest) 5…


Day Thirteen – 10 Things I Couldn’t Live Without

10 Things I Couldn’t Live Without. Write a list of the 10 things you need (or love) most. Twitter. Is it wrong that it is the top of the list? When I think of twitter, I think of my IBD family, my little clan of people who love me for just me; a Crohnie. I adore them. Free Falling. I…
