Back into a routine

I can’t believe it’s been a week since I last updated this blog! I feel like all the posts on here lately have been about pain and bad cerebral palsy days and my anxiety and low mood. I think it’s important for me to talk about all that stuff, but it’s nice to be able to have something more positive to tell you too.

With all of these other things going on lately I sort of fell out of the routine of writing and job hunting and spent a lot more time than I would care to admit binge-watching Netflix and drinking way more tea than normal. It was nice to take it easy, but as someone who judges how good her day has been based on her productivity levels (I know, I know), it didn’t make me as happy as you might think.

It took me a while, but I think the bad CP days are gone for now, I’ve started being able to sleep again (and at a slightly better time than 2am, too!) and most excitingly of all I’ve got myself back into the swing of writing and editing. I feel like I’m making progress on my main project.

I made a YouTube video earlier this week about the aftermath of a fall in which I banged my hips and my already bad hip. I expected it to have quite a big impact on me for a few days, but it wasn’t all that bad. Yay!

Fun Fact Friday [6]

Hello and welcome to Fun Fact Friday, a place where I share facts about myself that aren’t linked to my Cerebral Palsy.


I’m really excited to share this week’s fun fact with you all. It’s been really hard not to already post it all over the Facebook page and my Twitter account, but now I can finally tell you all.

For the last 10 months or so I have been working away on a novel; a superntural detective story, and I am no really pleased to say that the first draft is complete and I’ve now started on the editing process. I’m finding it both scary and fun!

I’d love to publish it one day but I know that it’s not ready for that yet.
