Update in Florida

Hello Strangers!

It’s been a few months since I last blogged. I’ve been pretty ill and tired and now I’m in Florida!

I’ve been in Florida since the 16th of September so exactly three weeks now. I came here with my Mum for some rest for 2 months and to get away from everything back home. My Dad’s here now for two weeks too.

I’ve been pretty busy here so I wondered if there was anything anyone would like me to tell them about or tips and advice or reviews on anything? 

It’s been tough recently and there’s been some big changes to my life personally. I’ve also had problems with certain people and there negative comments about my illness too. I just can’t understand why people could be so rude and want to hurt someone like that. How can you not think in your head that you wouldn’t like it if you were in this situation?

It’s been so good to get away from people like that and just have a rest without feeling neighbours or strangers are thinking I’m lazy or not even ill. Also I get to see new Once Upon A Time when its out on a Sunday and new Big Bang Theory on a Monday. Any other 22 year olds would want a holiday in Ibiza drinking until they fall but I must prefer an adrenaline rush on a rollercoaster and being a big kid in theme parks. 

Hopefully whilst I’m here I’ll be doing some new things too. I’m going to write like a weekly diary blog on Sundays and I’ll post about these first three weeks before. 

Sorry this isn’t much, it’s just a little update and there’ll be lots more posts and pictures from now.

Also a new layout soon!

Take care, 
Natasha Jade

When I Eventually Wake Up

I’ve lost track of what day of the week we’re on, what month or season. I’m dripping in sweat, it feels like Summer, but then I’m shivering, so is it Winter? I realise its still daytime from the stream of light peaking through sides of the blinds. The beauty of a sunrise or sunset taken away by the burning in my eyes. The birds singing outside that sounds like nails on a chalkboard. Every car driving past my window, the mumbling through my floorboards of my family watching TV, the postman at the door, the gardener mowing the lawn, all irritating me like an itch that you just can’t scratch.
My chest feels so heavy that I can’t lift it off the mattress, my shoulders pinned down by the invisible weights. My heads pounding and burning like any other young adult would after a long weekend, only mines not self inflicted by over priced cocktails and 99p shots. I lay their in pain from my toes to the top of my head, my legs restless, unable to find a comfortable position even in my cloud like …

30 Years of Mr and Mrs Spychalski

27.06.1987 - Mum and Dad's Wedding Day.
On the 27th of June 1987 was Pamela Robinson and Richard Spychalski's wedding day, soon to be my Mum and Dad. I wasn’t around 30 years ago. People still say it was the best wedding they’d ever been to, that's probably because of the free bottle of vodka they placed on every table.
Mum and Dad lets face it, the six years of marriage without me in it were pretty dull. I must have been the best anniversary gift you’ve ever received the day after your six year anniversary, I guess Dad was pleased he could save money on a gift that year, until he found out I was a girl and realised the small amount of money on a gift for mum is nothing compared to the money spent on a daughter for the rest of his life. You're welcome Dad.
If I’m honest I don’t know how they haven’t both packed up and moved away from me, together or not, although they are on holiday together this week, without me.
My Mum will be up all day and night if she could, researchi…

My Hero, My Idol, My Great Grandma

Today would have been my Great Grandmas 109th birthday. A lot of people probably never met any of their Great Grandparents. I was lucky to have had 18 years with one.
My Great Grandma, was the mother of my Grandma on my mum’s side. Her name was Mary King, but most people knew her as Molly. She past away when she was 103 and a week. That week is very important to me. I didn't even know it would be her last week with us. As a family it wasn't spent worried and preparing ourselves for her final few days, I didn’t even see her that week. 
The last time I saw my Great Grandma was on her 103rd birthday, opening her presents and cards in a care home she’d only spent the last 3 weeks of her life in because until those last three weeks, she lived in the same home she’d lived in for over 80 years.
My 18th birthday was five days after her 103rd. I’d finished college, planned a party for the weekend, I wanted to invite her, although I don’t think a party full of drunk 18 year olds was exactl…
