Still here, just enjoying the sunshine.

I found these photo's taken before the warm sunny weather.

Ordinary Days

 Tree hugging, yes we do lots of this :)
 My gorgeous new Tree of Life pendant. I spotted something similar on my friend Sarah's bloghttp://www.carried-family.blogspot.co.uk/. The photo doesn't show just how beautiful it really is.
 We had an indoor picnic to celebrate daddy's birthday, it was perfect, we listened to music that daddy chose, ate daddy's favourite food and just had lots of fun.
We go to a play gym on Fridays and Charlie loves to walk on the beams, he is so graceful and has so much more co-ordination than me!


Kindergarten had a Maypole festival, it was so lovely and Charlie really joined in the dancing and playing along with the music. Afterwards we all gathered in the garden for a bring and share picnic where the children shared the food out amongst everyone and Charlie was so wonderful and confident offering plates of goodies around.
 Our library bargains, 15p each :)
Walking with a wolf has the most beautiful illustrations. We have been studying wolves and so this book was just perfect.

My, I have been away for a while haven't I. Well I have had a little excuse really as I have been a bit poorly :(
A while back I was officially diagnosed with ME/CFS and I kind of got used to living with good ordinary days and days where I could hardly open my eyes and function at all. I really make the most of my good days and get out in the fresh air, walking, exploring and just living and breathing our wonderful world.
Well unfortunately my good days were getting fewer and far between so I have been back to see my GP and have also had an MRI scan. Thank goodness the scan showed no evidence of any tumour but it did show scar tissue that could be related to ME, MS, severe migraines. My symptoms are getting worse really and I get pins and needles in my right leg and sometimes my arm, blurred vision and horrible excruciating headaches and dizziness, to be honest whilst out walking the other day I found I had to hold on to Warren as I was very unsteady.
I am going to see a neurologist and may have a CT scan, although I am very reluctant as they use very strong radiation and a brain CT scan is not the best place for being zapped with!
Anyway, I need to chat with the specialist and see if it means a definite diagnosis or not.
Ok, enough of the not so nice stuff and I want to concentrate on my lovely family who not only keep me on my toes but remind me that I am indeed very loved.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I got my hair cut. It was very dry and unhealthy at the ends due to years of colouring it so...off the ends came :)
