Product Review - Engraved Medical Alert Bracelet from Butler & Grace

When the opportunity came up to review an ID bracelet from a fashionable range I grabbed the chance. My fiance Chris was diagnosed with a rare heart condition called Brugada Syndrome by random chance when he was admitted to hospital for gall stones. If the doctor hadn’t checked his ECG on a whim we would have been none the wiser, and since it’s a very serious genetic condition we are both very grateful that he did! It’s meant a lot of changes to our lives, and a bunch of new worries, especially for me when I see Chris go out and about without me. I’mRead More →

Just Geeking by in March

Umm…. where the hell did March go?! It feels like I just finished February’s geeking by post, and I almost didn’t realise this one was due out. Woops! It really doesn’t feel like I did much at all for most of this month and then bam, The Sci Fi Weekender convention (22nd – 25th) was suddenly upon us. Since I’m dedicating a whole post to that experience that might mean this monthly update is a bit on the wee side of things.1   All Clear Let’s start with what has been the elephant in the room for me for a while now; my chest x-rayRead More →

February Update

It was really difficult to find the motivation to write this catch up because February seemed to just blow through our lives and leave a heap of snow in it’s wake. Here in Glasgow we got hit pretty badly and we still have snow on the ground now. We were quite literally snowed in, which is a first for me. Here’s a few pictures and you can also see a few videos of the snow on my instagram.1   Gaming Bullet Journal I seem to have splurts of activity with my gaming bullet journal, and recently I’ve been delving into the world of transmogs fromRead More →

Flu Hiatus

Well, technically it’s Flu 3. That’s the amount of times I’ve had flu in my life and each time it’s left a lasting memory of the god awful feeling of death. I don’t know why flu always hits me so hard. The first time was when I was a teenager and I ended up missing the last few weeks of school right before summer, the second time was 2 years ago and was the trigger for chronic fatigue syndrome. Every time it takes 2 weeks minimum for me to get back to normal, and every time I curse the idiot that went out in publicRead More →

Memories

It’s been a while since I wrote a personal post. I’ve just been doing prompts, linkups and weekly series and getting more and more frustrated with that fact. It’s great to have regular content, however, I’ve had zero energy to actually do anything else. April was just a mess, and while May seemed to begin with a fresh start it has devolved into the same as April. Pain, fatigue, migraines. That’s my daily routine right now and yes, it sucks beyond belief. On top of that I’ve been adding a pile of extra stress, from the important to the mundane, and I’ve realised that IRead More →
