What does 2022 have for me?

What I think it has? I think the new year has a lot of good things happening. Not everything is going to be what I wanted it to be. That's ok though just the same as 2021.  There, as I said, have been lots of changes in the way things are regarding my disability. I think that the changes will be positive for the future to a certain degree. I'm hoping to have the final place, but it may not happen. We'll see. That's ok though because there is always going to be positive and negative. No matter what. What do I want from 2022 ? All I want is a way of being able to be safe and yet not stressed out too much. I know that this is going to be a difficult year ahead with the way that my family is going to have a head regarding their own situation such as GCSEs and a new place. We don't know what could actually be happening. We just have to take it month by month.  So that means that we have to think about what is going on each month and make a small p

Urgh! More changes ahead! Can't wait but good things come to those who wait!

  Oh no! Not again! I have been struggling with things the last few weeks. I hate having them but depression and anxiety have been a real big struggle for me and I’m still having moments daily with anxiety kicking in. I know why but they are things that are out of my control. These are things that change the future of myself and the family and these things are scary. They are exciting but scary too. Dealing with each emotion as they come: For me, 4 main emotions come across me in anxiety and these are: Fear Worry Anger Frustration These are because of the worry for the future and my family and the fact I am worried that what I want for the future Fear: I have an amazing family and I am not sure what is going to happen in the future for them. I want them to be happy and do exactly what they want to do. Even if at the moment I have to consider my own life at the same time for the now. Worry: Here things seem to be more stressful. But here are where things are less controllable. Because

Old and new things! the challenges of life

  The Old  There are many things that I would love to be able to do. Many of which are out of the question. And yet there are many that I can do.  My favourite things are books, makeup and music just to name a few.  So much that I watch a few @YouTubers such as @LisaEldridge @DominiqueSaches and @WayneGoss for my makeup tips. Musically I listen to lots of different types such as #Jazz , #Pop , #Classical , #Swing , just to name a few.  Bookwise I read a few favourites, such as @TerryPrattchet, @AgathaChristie, and @SirArthurConnnanDoyle. Although I am endeavouring to read more and different people. However, I am constantly drawn to my favourites especially when I am feeling low.  New Challenges Suffering from clinical depression as part of my life because of cerebral palsy I end up feeling like hiding away and doing nothing. Yet as a child I remember my mum using my great grandmother's sewing machine. I remember her making dresses and quilting using scrap material.

What is in a cup of coffee anyway?

  Bosch Tassimo Charmy   I love a good  Tassimo Costa Coffee Latte , however, if my budget doesn't stretch to that as it's on the average £5 per box of 8 drinks I will pick the less expensive but just as delicious Tassimo L'OR Latte Macchiato Coffee Pods  which is £4.50 a box. These prices were correct at the time of original posting. These drinks are made via pods rather than say the  Nespresso Essenza Mini Coffee Machine with Aeroccino, Pure White by Magimix which is done only by using capsules, your own milk and an aerator to froth up the milk There is another cheap coffee system which I have used and did like very much which is the  Dolce Gusto Coffee Machine  which again like Tassimo uses pods. They are just as good as the Tassimo although they do not have such big names as Suchard, Twinings, or Cadburys and Costa Coffee supporting them. But you know coffee isn't just the latte or cappuccino that you have with amazing friends or that few moments that you have to h
