Birdie and I’s First blog post!


Who would have thought that starting a blog could be so hard! Either that or i am to old to understand how all this works 🙂

I have ME (Myalgic encephalomyelitis) really bad so even though i am only 38 a lot of the time i feel 98! I bet there are loads of 98 year olds out there who could put me physically to shame!!

For those of you who are unfamiliar of me i will copy and paste a short summary of what it is and what it does.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) is characterised by a range of neurological symptoms and signs, muscle pain with intense physical or mental exhaustion, relapses, and specific cognitive disabilities. Basically my joints can get so sever i have to go to hospital to get the pain back to a manageable level. And the fatigue it comes with is depressing. Going from a single mum of 2, working, 2 horses and a social life i now i have trouble leaving the house. Even ridiculous every day things like making a brew on a bad day is like climbing Mount Everest!!

So i can no longer get out into the world so i thought me and birdie would see if the world would come to us!

She is my constant companion, unfortunately her favourite word is “Hello” sometimes accompanied with a Mexican wave.

Sounds cute and funny right? But its like having Jeremy Kyle on repeat, will soon get on your nerves, but she is lovely. She does also shout at the dog, she picked up on the command “Out” pretty quickly. It’s just a shame the dog doesn’t listen to her 🙂

So my blogs – who knows what they will be about! My brain flits from 1 thing to another fairly often! I might not write anything at all for a few days as another side effect of this stupid ME is Brain Fog so i am off in my own little world at times. I have had 1 of my daughters teachers accusing me of being drunk at 9am! because it messes with my brain wrong words can come out or i slur words, horrible, wouldn’t wish this on anybody!

The websites I’ve been trying to set up – There are 2 not including this as i can’t make up my mind which site i prefer! They are doing book reviews, old books right through to advanced copies of books that haven’t been published yet.

I am loving that as i read, a lot!! I ran out of room for bookcases so i have now got invisible book shelves on pretty much all of the walls as well 🙂 And neither of my kids read, i don’t understand it!

So if you fancy a chat about books just give me a shout!

As well as the books i have a slight problem with taking on animals, i will be that crazy little tattooed up old granny waving my walking stick at the neighbourhoods kids! I picked up a new kitten 2 days ago and iys caused more uproar and drama than i expected! The parrot is terrified of it and screams, the dog whos a huge Alaskan Malamute wants to play with it which i am not allowing just yet but my other 3 cats dont seem to bothered so far! Welcome to the mad house!

Well i think i will end there for now or i will go on for hours! Mybe our next blog will be tattoos and peoples perceptions on them still.

Have a great day from both Birdie and I
