Social Media Update
I’ve more recently made the jump to Twitter. I say ‘jump’, I mean more a like reluctant dip-my-toes-in-the-water kind of thing. I’d managed to avoid it for so long but caved in to curiosity. I’ll be honest. I don’t have a clue what’s going on, it’s hard to see who’s Tweeting what & I’m sure I’ve Twittered to myself a few times by mistake. Anyone else not really digging this Twit-Tweet-Twitter business?
I’m also on Facebook & Insta, so please do drop by and say hello. Also feel free to leave your links in the comments so I can find you, too.
Bloggers Bash Awards – Best Lifestyle Blog Nominee
I am shocked to say that I’m a nominee for the Best Lifestyle Blog award for this year’s Bloggers Bash. Whoever has nominated me (crazy fools) THANK YOU. There are quite a few nominees for this category, but I’m pleased to see a few blogs in there that I love & that I voted for, too. I honestly did not expect to see my name on this list whatsoever, so I am truly, deeply honoured. The bash is a great way to get to know discover new blogs, congratulate other bloggers for their efforts & celebrate all things awesome about the blogging world.
Voting is now open & will close on April 24th. I’ve made my votes!
Over To You…
I’d like to throw it out there and over to you – is there anything you’d like to see more of on InvisiblyMe? Do you have anything you’d like changed to make it more accessible, is the font easy enough to read, are there any types of articles you prefer? Any thoughts are welcomed & much appreciated.
I’ll keep this brief as starting talking about my health at the moment could have me writing an essay. I’ve finally had my stoma stitches out – hurrah! Better late than never. It hurt like hell but I’m glad they’re out. My post-op follow-up was a bit of a waste of time as nothing could really be said. I’m waiting on the laparoscopic investigation in London which has to be pushed back a little because I’ve been advised a break of at least 3 months is best following my emergency surgery before any more surgery.
Pain has been up lately, as has my anxiety. Migraines every other day, just to make me that bit grumpier. I’m losing a lot of time with so much of it being taken up with not being well enough to do anything. It gets frustrating, as many of you will know all too well. Mentally, I’ve not been doing so well. I didn’t want to post specifically about it on here as it would have been an incredibly negative, rant-filled post, and that probably wouldn’t help me or anyone reading it. But I do want to be authentic here, and show that it’s not positive all the time. So yes, I’ve been struggling and spiralling. But it’s all swings and roundabouts, and in the more challenging times we need to remember that we’ve been through worse and made it, and we’ll be okay this time, too.
It’s my mum’s birthday this weekend on the 14th. I managed to find the coolest Hello Kitty wrapping paper. I also bought ‘Happy 21st’ balloons. I hope that at 71 she can see the funny side.
I’d like to hope we could do something to celebrate, maybe a small day trip in the next week or two. With my body struggling just running errands in town, however, I’m apprehensive of what to suggest incase I ruin it, dragging myself along and not being capable of doing much all day. It’s about adjusting and adapting to what you can do, it’s just a bit harder when you don’t want to disappoint someone else or ruin their day.
I’ve been reading heaps of books, drinking ample Options Belgian hot choc (highly recommended, tastes yum), and I treated myself to Netflix for the month. I’m over 10 years late to the party with this one but I’ve just started Mad Men & loving it. With 7 series to get through, it should keep me busy during times when I can concentrate on it. What’re you watching and/or reading at the moment?
Thank you all for reading, for you comments & your support. You rock! I truly appreciate each and every one of you, and I’m proud to be a part of such a fab blogging community.
Whatever you’re up to over the weekend, I hope it’s a good one & that you’re all keeping as well, and as rested, as possible.
