An Update

So much has happen since my last post. I hope you are all well. We visited my Sister in Australia in April. She lives out there with her family and this was the second time we have been out. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed our well earned break.

However, we have both had some health concerns which is especially worrying to me as, as a sufferer of anxiety, I am a bit of a hyperchondriac, and the internet only makes things worse, which I have been glued to for weeks now. I feel like I'm going from one worry to another at the moment, which then makes me worry life is passing me by as I'm just spending it worrying!!

On the plus side I am trying to stay busy (hence the blogging!), we have the first of our Re-enacting shows coming up and I have finished my first display which I will be using this year so I am excited about that. 

When we got back fron Oz we found our allotment had gone mad with weeds while we were away so we've been catching up with that. Dh has been a trooper helping me at the allotment, as it's my hobby really.

I have been doing a lot of cooking as well as dietary research, so we have been spending more than usual on quality ingredients which I don't mind too much as I never feel money is wasted on nice food and we never have takeaways or anything like that which I know can be very expensive. At the moment I am making kefir in the kitchen, which is a fermented milk drink. I hope to be able to help heal us through our diet. For me, it also helps me feel like I'm doing something productive to help us too which is good. 

I will leave you with some pictures of our holiday.

Thanks for reading. Xx

This was a green juice and raw berry cheesecake and caramel slice- healthy! .....kinda ;)

One afternoon my sister, my nieces and I made afternoon tea from scratch, we then all dressed up and had a lovely tea :)

  1. Looks like you had a great time. Your lovely photos brought back great memories of my trip to Australia years ago. I do hope you feel better soon. Pat xx

    1. Thanks Pat, yes it was amazing :)

  2. Glad to see you back and that you had a nice trip.
    Hang in there on the health issues - remember our bodies were made with self-healing properties. I do the internet thing too but try to take it all with a grain of salt.
    Love the afternoon tea - I bet it was fun : )

  3. Thank you for that advice Jo :)
