I’m due to start Chemotherapy next Thursday, however, before this all happened I was actually due to be going on an incredible retreat called The Wilding hosted by my mentor of almost 2 years Katy of The Owl & The Apothecary. I wanted to share that my spot is now open and I would love […]

Take my place for the Wilding?

After getting the diagnosis back in July, literally the next day I started booking alternative healing treatments.

Me at home

Following on from my last post, a LOT has happened and I’m not sure where to start with it all, but I wanted to put together a post to share the latest in this crazy journey I’m on. So just under 2 weeks after the operation, I had the follow up appointment with the consultant […]

Update on the Journey

It’s not easy especially as this kind of cancer isn’t exactly easy to talk about- as Deborah James describes it- it’s the brown cancer. I followed Deborah James and her journey with Bowel Cancer for years and always so admired her […]

Finding out I had Cancer – my journey so far

Well it’s been a hot minute (literally here in the UK!) since I last wrote my last blog post… I’ve been in a void. That is basically in a space where I just had to stop and step back. Instead of trying to push through I recognised there were still things I was doing on […]

I’ve been in a ‘Void’

Back in February I was diagnosed with ADHD. I had suspected it for a while, but there is so much stigma around it. It was never a condition I had really identified with before until I started researching it. I had initially started looking into it after thinking there was a possibility my son may […]
