The lovely Kim at I Tripped Over A Stone nominated me for the Liebster Award 2017 but with a difference, requesting 10 pictures to tell my readers a little more about me & to describe my life. Challenge accepted! Though I will say that I feel rather self-absorbed doing this post all about me, me, me!
I spend a lot of time on my trusty MacBook with writing, blogging, emails etc.
Tea, blanket & a good book; an almost unbeatable combination when dealing with fatigue & pain. That’s my slice of heaven right there.
My cat, abandoned by his owner. He doesn’t understand how to retract his claws, but I think deep down he knows I want a golden retriever.
I have a thing about skull designs. They’re everywhere. Even on the sweater I’m wearing in this photo, my phone case and my mug.
Hello Kitty is an adult phase I grew in to (and thus will likely never grow out of!)
Chronic, invisible illness. It has changed my life but it’s not who I am, just a part of me.
Art – I love it, but I’m not very good at it unless I’m copying like for like. It’s something I want to do more of in 2018.
My mum, who is amazing.
Graduating with a First Class Psychology BSc Hons degree (quite a few years ago now). I self-taught my degree via the Open University. Still sad that health & finances mean I never took this further, as I would have loved to go into Clinical Psych or Counselling.
My stoma doesn’t define me, but it’s certainly changed & shaped my life. I’m still learning to deal with it and everything it throws at me, including another surgery in 2018.
I’d like to open this up to you lovely guys & gals – If anyone would like to do this award, please feel free! And drop me a comment when you have so I can make sure to check out your photos 🙂
