The June Edit

This month’s review will only be a short one as I had quite a crappy month and forgot to make notes, my brain doesn’t work when I don’t write thigs down!
Nothing in the month ever seemed to go right, apart from the weather that is… I actually cant remember the last time I saw rain.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a summer like this one where the weather has been so consistently good for more than a week. It feels almost surreal, doesn’t it?~

How typically British I start this post with talking about the weather!

Health

You might have seen over on my twitter that I was in hospital recently. I needed to go onto the ward for a few days for a couple of reasons really… I have been losing weight steadily over the past 4 months so needed to go back on feeds. This is where I connect up a tube in my stomach to a machine that pumps liquid filled with hundreds of calories into me. If you’re wondering just wtf all that shiz is then click HERE to read more.
I also needed to try out a couple of medications in a safe environment as I am allergic to so many so my doctor thought it would be best I go onto the ward for this.

I only expected to be in a few days but my diabetes started playing up whilst I was there and I needed to stay an extra couple of days to get it under control.
I HATED being in… I got the room I had last time I was admitted and its right by the nurses station so didn’t get much sleep. Next time I need to remember to pack earplugs!

It was CF (Cystic Fibrosis) Week whilst I was on the ward, this is where people try to raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. The nurses on the ward had decorated the whole ward with yellow bunting and yellow balloons. It looked great, I wish they could stay up all the time, our ward needs a bit of decoration I think!
The nurses also ran a raffle and made little yellow ribbon badges to raise some money and they did really well, they managed to raise £600! So proud!

If you don’t know what CF is, take a look at the post I wrote during CF Week and find out!

Blogging Life

I haven’t been on social media much this month as other months but I did manage to hit 1700 followers on Twitter! I’m so grateful to everyone who’s followed me so far.

I’m making steady progress on my Instagram though and have hit 450 followers!
Here are a few of my most popular posts this month…

I have been overwhelmed this month with such kind words from lovely followers and friends on Twitter and Instagram. I cant begin to tell you all how much this means to me, I don’t have many friends in RL (spare the violin) and to have people on the internet who care and spend a little bit of their day sending me a lovely comment genuinely means the world.
Thank you all so much, the blogging community is truly amazing!

 

Life in General

This week I was invited to my boyfriend’s family gathering, a couple of his relatives had come over from Australia to visit. We all met up at a BEAUTIFUL pub in Christleton in Chester called The Cheshire Cat and had dinner there.
There’s a lovely canal right next to it and a great beer garden which we sat in for a while after having dinner and watched the sunset.

Another thing I loved about this pub/restaurant was that they allowed dogs! There were quite a few there and I just wanted to stroke them ALL. I spent most of the day staring at them and saying “awww look at him” to my boyfriend haha! They had dog biscuits on the bar in a jar and plenty of water bowls dotted all over the place too which is great to see.

I ordered fish and chips off their menu and it was cooked to perfection. So tasty and their chips were BIG, proper like tombstones! I seriously hope to go back again soon and try other things they had on their menu and of course, DESSERTS!

    Sad to hear that you’ve had a tough month with your health but it sounds like you’ve approached it all with a positive mindset and managed to have some good times too. Love the look of where the pub is with the canal right by. Might have to check that out!

    Congrats on your progress on social media.

    Take good care of yourself

    Sorry you’ve been in hospital…always a bummer! I hope that your health continues to improve.
    The pub looks lovely – I miss fish & chips. I love it with tartare sauce. I think you can buy “English style fish” frozen here in France. Maybe I should try that!
