The Happy List

So I've failed with my original aim of blogging at least once a week, live has been busy and I've not been organised so apologies for the sporadic posting.

This is another happy list (thanks to Josie @sickchickchic for the idea) 

1) As mentioned in my last post, I have been suffering from headaches at work as I sit at a computer all day but after a trip to Specsavers, it was confirmed that straining my eyes was the cause and so I am now a proud member of the 4 eyes club and officially 'shortsighted'. The headaches are no more thanks my new swanky Specs as modelled below! 


2) My brother returned home on Good Friday from his 5 month winter season in Austria. My sister was home for the weekend too resulting in us all being together for the first time since November! Yay for having the best brother and sister and us all being together for easter. My mum was super cute and surprised us all with an easter egg hunt around the house, it was even more fun than when I was little…

Spring Smiles

Hello,

Spring really has sprung and the sun is shining as I sit and write this in my garden. But the sun isn't the only thing thats put a smile on my face the last week or so...
Last weekend I jumped on a train to London for a long weekend. Going to London always gives me a buzz with the promise of spontaneity and fun filled times. The initial reason for this impromptu visit to the big smoke was a workshop on Saturday morning at the BBC called 'Get in' designed to enlighten people like myself who are interested in a job in the media about the career/training opportunities available within the BBC. Just being in the BBC New Broadcasting house in central London filled me with awe, the BBC is an establishment that has always been a part of my life, from growing up watching CBBC as a child to listening to BBC Radio 1 as a young adult and watching shows like The Great British Bake Off which captivated not just baking enthusiasts but an entire nation. So to be in the building th…

New beginnings...

Hello, it's been a while, 18 months or there about since I last posted to this blog.

I don't have any singular reason for the long break there were numerous reasons. I wanted to reclaim some privacy that I felt I had lost through blogging so openly and regularly about my life, I also got caught up in the busy nature of adult life and I never seemed to get the same opportunities to sit and write a blog, if I blog I want to do it properly, not a half hearted attempt. But none of that matters now  because I'm back, with fresh eyes and new ideas on what I want this blog to be, both for myself and you guys reading.

First of all I would like to reassure the many people that have followed my story for the last 6 years that I am alive and well. I am now 2 years, 1 and a half months post transplant which is a fact that boggles my mind, I still have to regularly pinch myself to check it is true and not a figment of my imagination! I still have to attend hospital appointments to moni…
