Geeking by in May & June

As you can tell from how amazingly late this is, my May didn’t really go to plan. Well, the first half did. I’d planned for this to be just a single month update like normal, however, once I got started I ended up talking about most of June as well. Including the last two weeks, which is the first two weeks of June, also helps me catch up a bit too and is one less thing I need to schedule this month. A Blogging I Will Go As explained in last months Geeking by By, I was launching a new blog schedule this month andRead More →

February Update

It was really difficult to find the motivation to write this catch up because February seemed to just blow through our lives and leave a heap of snow in it’s wake. Here in Glasgow we got hit pretty badly and we still have snow on the ground now. We were quite literally snowed in, which is a first for me. Here’s a few pictures and you can also see a few videos of the snow on my instagram. ((Image from Public Domain Images.

January Update

My life very rarely goes according to plan (this January especially), and the past year has been a lesson in accepting that. In doing so I realised that I’d completely shied away from posting personal blog posts, hiding what was happening in my life and especially anything related to my health. I’d comment about it, usually to apologise for a late post, and that would be it. That doesn’t jive with the whole point of this blog, nor with my way of living and I realised that I’ve fallen into a pattern of shame and anxiety about what other people think. In trying to cultivateRead More →

Blog Hiatus

It’s been months since my last blog post, and it’s taken me until now to find the strength and energy to actually say ‘hey, I’m on hiatus!’ officially. I’m doing ok, the blog is here to stay, but the more I learn about my life now with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME), I am realising that everything is different. Everything has to be done differently. That means I need to take some time to get back on my feet, and what was supposed to be a month’s break has now become three months thanks to an ongoing viral infection that seems to love me just aRead More →

My Monthly Goals for September

September? Where did that come from? This year has just blown by and soon I’ll need to start thinking about things I want to achieve before the year ends, as well as planning blog posts for Christmas and reviewing the end of the year! As I said in my August goals, I didn’t want to overdo it because I was just getting back into the swing of things and only had a few weeks left of the month to go. This time it’s the start of the month and I’m gradually piecing my life back together, enough to actually plan things again.     PersonalRead More →
