Just like our Autumn, Spring and Summer spotting activities just keep an eye out for the things on the list and tick them as you go!

Things I Want You to Know as a Fibromyalgia Sufferer

Many of you will know that I have Fibromyalgia. As a condition it can be hard to describe how it effects you and how it makes you feel.

Door Furniture Direct


I love a good furniture project and since discovering a local shop stocked a well known chalk paint last year, we've given quite a few pieces of furniture makeovers!

Cabinets, chairs and dressing tables have all had a coat of paint. This time around we've painted our bedside tables.

Gruesome Eyeball Cakes

With Halloween fast approaching I thought it was time for a new bake

As usual it's an easy but effective bake.

CareCo Resistance Band


As a sufferer of Fibromyalgia strengthening my body is important to me. 

Exercise and better eating can help many of those struggling with Fibro, as can strengthening the joints and core. Things like yoga and exercising and stretching with a resistance band can be hard work to begin with but eventually make you strong.

I've had a few Fibro flares recently and I've been quite wobbly on my feet so I've been trying my best to make myself stronger.

To do this I've been using one of the CareCo Resistance Bands and following their 4 week plan.

October Giveaway!

We've said goodbye to September and as October gets into full swing it's time for another giveaway!!

Lots of you loved the last one so I've decided they are going to be a monthly occurrence! 

For this month's giveaway I thought we'd stick to the crafty items but as it's my birthday month it should obviously have a hint of Disney!

This month's giveaway is a Winnie the Pooh craft goody bag!
