I realised that I haven’t done a health update in a little while so I thought I’d write a post to let you all know where I am – I won’t go in to too much back story, if you want to know what’s got me up to this point then you can see my previous posts, there’s one from August 2016 here, and one from September 2016, here. The post may get a bit long so I’ll write a quick conclusion towards the end just so that, if you don’t have long, you can hop down there and get a simpler version.

Since last seeing my Neurologist I have had nerve testing to, finally, rule out Myasthaenia Gravis and I was pleased to discover that they were clear, so I don’t have that. Previously ruling out MG meant that my neuro felt that it was Functional Neurological Disorder but he’s not as sure, now, and wants me to see whether or not my Rheumatologist believes there could neurological complications with what I potentially have there. I’m not sure if I’m going to be signed off from my neuro, but for  now I’m not seeing him but if the rheumy stuff doesn’t bring answers then I’ll go back and ask again.

Regardless of what’s happening – There’s good things in life

I’ve been ordering from Simple Candle Company for a little while, now, and for a good few months I was signed up to their subscription box service (see some posts here, and here), but I have put my subscription on hold for a while because I just have so many melts that it’s getting silly.

Of course when you subscribe to a service, like that, you’re going to get some scents which are less suited to you and I’ve got a nice little collection put to one side, now. I’ve saved a few for another giveaway which I have in the pipe line, but today I am starting my giveaway to win 10 beautiful smelling melts.

I, genuinely, think it’s a year or more since I last did a Primark haul! I just never manage to get to the store because I very rarely get to town, and on the times that I do it’s because we’ve been to the hospital and I’m too exhausted to do actual shopping. I’ve seen so many wonderful primark posts and videos that I’ve really felt like I’m missing out so it was rather lovely to be able to get in to store, myself, for the first time in about a year!

I took Ethan as a treat, after his dentist appointment, so that he could get a couple of new t-shirts as we’d had a big clear out of his things and he had had to get rid of some real favourites. I also picked up some bits for myself, of course. I didn’t get anything for Oliver as by the time we reached the baby section I was exhausted, and he’s not lacking in clothes anyway haha!

It’s the start of a New Year and the lovely people at Treat Box UK have made a box worthy of starting the year with new beginnings and resolution, with changes and plans for the future. As always it’s clear that the box was beautifully curated and I am loving quite how much of the box contains the stunning print that has been made for this month.

I think this is my last box from my latest subscription so I may take a break, as I have a lot of lifestyle bits building up… or you may see me post again in February if I just can’t make myself miss a box.

In this Winter weather good skincare can be even more important than normal, the cold weather can wreak havoc on even the best skin and extra moisture can make a world of difference. When I was asked to try the Jojoba Company ‘Hydrating Day cream‘ it felt like the perfect thing to be using this Winter to keep my skin soft and stop it from drying out.
