Do parents have a limit?

Do parents have a limit? This was the question I found myself pondering today after some absolute vile behaviour from the mancub.

iPhone 8/8 Plus & iOS 11

Last week I was invited up to London to check out the latest iPhones along with Apple’s brand new iOS 11. I currently have an iPhone 6 and it’s slow and frustrating; I’m always a few years decades behind everyone else but I have loved Apple products since I bought my first iPod Mini years […]

How much weight can you gain in a day?

Do you ever find yourself googling ridiculous things? I found myself asking stupid questions all the time and it’s addictive – I’m also guilty of going through pages and pages of search results to find an answer that I’m happy with.  Hmm.

Vitamin D deficiency & me

After a routine blood test detected I had a Vitamin D deficiency about two years ago I’ve tried every remedy under the sun including supplements, but nothing as yet has worked. As I’ve written previously I’m sure my depression and chronic fatigue is made worse by hormones and a vitamin D defieciency.  So is it […]

It’s that time of year in the realm of Slimming World where the Christmas countdown begins and that can only mean one thing. Taster week. The though fills me with dread.  I’m expecting a table full of scan-bran cake and jelly sweets made from no-fat yoghurts.

Weigh-in Wednesday(late again) – week 5

I’m as flaky as a, well, flake at the moment… I’m still playing catching up after my massive depressive episode and plus my hubs has been poorly(will explain more later on that). So this Wednesday was my week 5 weigh in and I was shitting it.  I’d not been sticking to plan and I was […]

Health & Happiness

Another day, another slight change to my categories… for anyone who hasn’t read my blog I write about issues that are raw and real life and at the moment and ongoing these tend to focus on my struggles with depression and my weight. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to come up with categories […]

Top Ten… Happy Songs

I’ve spoken about how I’m now living life medication free(apart from thyroid medication) and so I’m trying to find simple ways to stay happy and keep my depression at bay. Music has been a huge part of my life for, well; my whole life and the hubs always says I can remember so much just […]
