June 2019 update….

Firstly I have to apologise for not being around and posting. It's been a busy and stressful few weeks. I made the decision to return to work at the beginning of June. Although I didn't feel 100% by any means, my mood has been good. The main issue has continued to be fatigue due to… Continue reading June 2019 update….

Time for a review and rethink…

I thought it was time to have a really good think about what I want to focus on in the coming weeks with the blog.

So What’s Been Happening??

I know I haven't written my gratitude posts for a few days....this was basically because I had a huge energy dip (i.e. I was totally exhausted for 2 days) and just didn't have the energy or motivation to post.  As I've said before, my mental health is a major part of this, and I'm learning… Continue reading So What’s Been Happening??
