A Guide to Surviving Freshers

Here I was two years ago when I filled my Dad's car to the brim and packed off to halls. It's that time of year again when groups of innocent 18 year olds fly the nest and head off to university. My freshers week was a week of two halves. The first half consisted of me consuming my body weight in wine before promptly parting ways with it again. The second half consisted of me crying into my pillow every night with the worry that I'd never make any friends. Today I thought I'd share my guide to surviving freshers and actually enjoying it.

Last week I packed up for a week of all inclusive luxury with my parents! It was bliss to just relax and catch some rays and take a break from the midwife life for a little while! Here is my week in outfits sharing my evening glam!

A guide to Lisbon

A couple of weeks ago me and my friend packed our cases and headed off to Lisbon for a couple of days. We'd planned a few things we wanted to do but a load of things just happened by chance and we are so glad they did! Here is a little bit of what we did in Lisbon and a few things we'd recommend!

Life after stroke: three years on

Today I am three years post stroke! I would be celebrating with a large glass of prosecco however I am in the middle of two long days so will postpone the celebrating till later in the week. Actually, take me back to three years ago where I was arriving at a hospital for a very different reason and where I am now would actually be a bit of a pipe dream. I've wrote these updates on this day for the past couple of years and I'm so glad I have. I go back and read them myself and see just how far I've come. I'll write this post with the honesty and realism I always have.
