Bonnie Scotland

So we went for a weekend away in Edinburgh to stay with our friends who I fondly call The Puddleducks. Ra-Ra hadn’t ever left the country so I had organised awhile back to stay with them. Most people wouldn’t class a mini holiday in Scotland leaving the country but it is still a separate country here. Read more

Over The Hills And Far Away

sleepover with stacy

I had my first night away with a friend since my surgery on bank holiday Monday.  I met Stacy via Fit Girls Guide on Instagram around Christmas 2014. Since then I feel like we have grown closer and closer. Hell there was never any taboo with poo if I needed to talk to someone about issues most people shy away from, she was there. In fact I think she once said “Hey! Everyone poops!” Read more

Wander In the Woods

First things first, yesterday I saw my stoma nurse and she put some silver nitrate on the granulomas so hopefully that’s that! Today we met up with 00Steve’s best mate/brother Chappie and his girlfriend Magz. We went off towards Thirsk and for a wander up to the White Horse, Magz being from Durham had no idea it existed. I wanted to show Ra-Ra the planes and gliders, part of me wanted to show off to her because a few years ago 00Steve paid for me to have a glider lesson. (I love planes ha ha when I was 16 and 17 I did aerobatic flying lessons) Read more

Stoma Open Day

As I walked in I was greeted by one of my stoma nurses then further round I saw the other. I nearly didn’t recognise them not in their uniforms! Both of them looked lovely. Due to the high amount of people at the open day I didn’t get the chance to take photos.

Pink Punk Army

Today was Cancer Research’s Race For Life 5K event in Middlesbrough. Since 2013 I have done it every year since (I was heavily pregnant that first year) with Ra-Ra. It’s like our thing, it’s great because I have watched her progress from tip toeing across the finish line, to walking and now running across the line. Now I can’t find one of me pregnant but that maybe a good thing! Read more

You Can’t Go Over It, You Can’t Go Under It

you can't go over it and you can't go under it

You have to go through it! I love the book We’re going on a bear hunt and that phrase went through my head as we had another three generation ladies day  (sorry I keep putting that as Geordie the dog is a boy) this time we kept it local by going for a walk into Cliff Ridge Wood. Read more

Birthday Times At The Beach

birthday times at the beach

So yesterday was my mam’s birthday. The original plan was to go round and do some painting and stuff. After a lovely early lunch of eggy bread, my mam decided she wanted to go to a beach. I mean it was a glorious day weather wise. So once my dad had had his lunch (he was on a lunch break from work) we set off to mine to get a ticket for sea life printed, Ra-Ra’s net/bucket and spade, coat in case it got cold. We are in England after all. Read more
