Plans for the Week Ahead – Ep. 13

This week is a lot like last week. No appointments, just deadlines and more deadlines. This week Ben is working in his patch so is in the area for the evenings. This means I’m cooking dinner for us each night except Thursday. This is something I am really getting into planning and organising. I have four scheduled blog posts that need uploading, let alone some others to write. I hope to spend some time baking this week too. I’m going to continue our evening walks we do when he is working at home, we both need the exercise and its…


January 2017

This month I’ve been quietly dealing with my own version of the January blues. I don’t tend to get depressed too much this time of year, especially when I’ve been feeling so well. But I think it’s somewhat due to the fact that I’ve been feeling so well that I feel sad. Which is twisted and I’ve been struggling how to process it and whether or not I should be talking about it. Should this blog be positive things only, helping others to get through surgeries and how to live with a chronic illness? Would I be doing myself and…


Plans for the Week Ahead – Ep. 12

Another quiet week… maybe? This week I have so much I need to get started; at the very least. These include: several regular blog posts, a couple of new ones, some videos to record, job hunting, CV updating, lots of cooking and some much needed baking. I am home alone this week – Ben is back in Leicester training – so I have my evenings to myself; my meal planning this week is “meals for one” which I hope are healthy or at least well balanced. It also means I get time to just be me, at my own pace…


High Five Friday – January 27th

Work, work, work… This week started with getting my office completed. We took a trip to Ikea and got my new desk chair – so very very comfy – passing through PC World on the way home to grab my new software. Yep, I’m all softwared and teched for a while. So far, no problems to report. It is making me much more organised and motivated to keep writing, long past my bedtime..!   The rest of the weekend we spent time cooking and relaxing. I did get to do my meal planning for the week and get out to…


Plans for the Week Ahead – Ep. 11

A week with no appointments! Monday Ben won’t have gone back to Academy or working with his mentor so we are planning a movie and some shopping in a new place. We’ve gotten quite addicted to Pokémon Go – yes, we are adults and enjoying Pokémon, and what? It gets us out walking and talking about something new.. gotta roll with it! – and its nice to go out on a day when its not so busy with people around like the weekend. The only draw back for having a new job that is weekdays 9-5. Tuesday I have got…
