Anniversary and Birthday Weekender

birthday and anniversary weekender

I know you all know by now that I’m married and have a little girl, but what you may not know is she was born on our second wedding anniversary. Everyone usually gushes with how lovely that is. Not everyone realises it meant I had a cesarean on my wedding anniversary I felt very selfish and put out but wouldn’t change her for a minute Read more

Purple Wings Charity Event Part One!

I’m going to split this into two parts otherwise you will be reading forever!!

As you all know by now I went to the Purple Wings Charity event. I was lucky enough to snap up a free ticket so I could go. I was so excited but incredibly nervous about going; to a city I’ve never been too, by myself to meet people I’ve never met before! I had messaged Lauren a few times and felt quite an instant connection to her, she has such a big heart and is beautiful inside and out. She managed to make it so 00Steve could come with me as well after an unfortunate turn of events occurred. I don’t think she will ever truly understand what that meant to us both.

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

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.
