Life lately (day trips, dieting, and dreaming of Disneyworld).

31.3.18

I am completely over this weather. My skin is crying out for some sunshine, which probably explains why I spend most of my time watching vlogs of other people's holidays in Florida and planning a holiday that possibly isn't going to happen for a while. But I can dream, right?

Recently I got my arse into gear and I have been focussing on my diet and exercise regime a bit more. A stone and a half has managed to creep its way slowly onto my being and I really don't feel good at all. My confidence is really low and most of my clothes are way too tight which definitely doesn't help. Food massively impacts the symptoms of my CFS so I know I need to do better. I'm not doing any crazy diets but I am tracking my calories loosely each day and using my FitBit to track my daily steps. I always aim for at least 7000 a day but I don't always reach it if I'm having a rubbish health day. But other days I easily double it. I am also playing around with workouts to see what my body can handle so hopefully a bit of weight will come off and I'll feel much better all round.


I recently reopened my Etsy shop but swapped charm bracelets for my main passion which is cross stitching. I am selling PDF patterns as well as completed stitched pieces. And I can do custom stuff too! The best way to contact me for that is through my Etsy shop or on my new Instagram page which is @threadordeadclub

The next thing on my agenda is kits but they are a little trickier to piece together so that's going to take a bit of time. I'm working on a website for my shop too which is testing my technology skills but I'm really proud of what I have managed to do so far. I will give you a shout when it's live as I would love you to have a nosy round it and give me feedback.

Apart from my trips to Northumberland (here!) and Harry Potter Studios (here!), me and Oliver have had a jaunt to Otley, a walk on the Chevin with Lily and Lola, a browse round Salts Mill and Saltaire Village (including breakfast in a rare patch of sunshine), and a very cold day trip to Manchester. We are planning another mini break which I'm really looking forward to as our last break to Northumberland was completely wonderful.
