A Little Update & A New Layout!

I’m back!

Yes, I said I’d be blogging a lot in Florida and yes, I said I’d blog three times a week since July but yes, I’ve massively failed thanks to my illness. As my way to say sorry I have a new layout to please your eyes! I’m still gonna be tweaking it here and there but it’s looking a hell of a lot better. I was so excited to blog about Halloween and everything but I’ve just been so ill and even worse since I got home over a week ago now, so ill I don’t think I’ve left the house since. 

I’ve also been going through private messaged and emails and replying to them all. It’s so good to hear from so many people and hear your words of support. It’s also been amazing to receive messages from other people in similar situations health wise and share treatments and doctors stories. 

I’m planning so many more blogs leading up to christmas hopefully full of baking, crafts, present ideas and other festive ideas. I’m already listening to Christmas songs, I even made my mum listen to one in the car in america the day after Halloween. So much is changing since I’ve been home and lots of exciting plans for the new year which I’m excited and scared about, you’ll understand when I explain sometime soon. 

My next post in two days will be about something important to me and a little bit of a rant. It’s not so fun but its something I think needs to be discussed. Then I’ve decided I’m going to write a week to week blog about my 2 months in Orlando hopefully every other day full of photos too. 

Let me know what you think about my new blog layout and anything you want to know about my time in Orlando and I’ll include it in my holiday blogs. Also anything you want me to blog about at all especially during Christmas!!

See you Thursday!
Take care

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…
