So thanks to Purple Wings Charity really kindly giving me a grant of a hotel voucher for 00Steve and I to reconnect as having Ra-Ra then falling pregnant sadly losing Bean and falling pregnant with Button we never really had a chance to just adjust as a normal couple would after having major life changing surgery. Don’t get me wrong we never let my ileostomy get in the way of our relationship but we weren’t able to just be ourselves as we had little people to take care of! Thanks to Purple Wings Charity we were able to visit Paris! Read more
Like most young girls I dreamed of being a model when I grew up, but becoming chronically ill and being definitely awkward looking (not to mention steroid moon face) I soon realised that I wasn’t what society deemed as beautiful. Not that I was ugly really not in reality. Since meeting Jasmine back in 2016 I have wanted to model for her company but I was never going to be at the forefront of her mind when her brand exudes glamour and silver screen elegance – as I am a very proud punk rock princess! I however got to experience modelling for her recently and it didn’t matter about my tattoos as I got to be all decked out for Halloween! Read more
…Oh I do like to be besides the sea…although I’m not sure what the English Channel actually constitutes as sea-wise (my Dad say’s it’s the Atlantic Ocean so we will go with both!) but we stayed at Porthleven on the coast 6 miles away from Lands End in Cornwall. Read more
Well then this is a rather exciting topic for me to be talking about! Myself and three for now other women (one sneaky one is hiding in the wings but for now will remain a surprise) will be taking to your screens once a week to talk about life with IBD and ostomies! In our very own SHOW! So even if you don’t have IBD but you have a stoma you are still included! Read more
I am now thirty, yep my life now spans three decades as my dad commented (my response yours will be 5 next month!) I never have high expectations for my birthday and this year I was pleasantly surprised, however 0oSteve always makes an effort. Read more
So now is the time everyone is making New Years resolutions. I’m not writing any this year, nor am I ignoring them. But for me they are a way to try and make myself whole again by hoping to achieve goals. Read more
This is the first booklet in what I can gather is going to work into a series from Trio Ostomy Care. I have already received their booklet on healthy eating which was also pretty interesting and had some ideas for recipes. It’s not just summer we all go on holiday, I know plenty of people jetting off for winter sun holidays (lucky sods) so this is worth getting.
