“A Mask of Gold hides all deformities” – Thomas Dekker

Before you ask not a quote from the "Heroes" star or the road cycilist, but the  English Elizabethan dramatist , but still stands very true in many walks of life.  This time though I am going to blog about something that I have been asked to, my masks. Now please excuse the (un)glamorous no-makeup look, but ...

Doesn’t matter, you will never understand…..

*** Before I start this post, I want to start with a little disclaimer, this is one of the harder blog posts I have chosen to write. Why?  I don't want to upset anyone, offend them or even seem ungrateful, so please please read this to the end and know I mean it with love ...

I love to go a-wandering, Along the mountain track, And as I go, I love to sing, My knapsack on my back……..

This weekend was a case of just what the Doctor ordered, its given me a complete fresh boost.  Since my Brittle Asthma decided to take over my life, I have become trapped in a bubble (and a damn big RUT). Like many people that live with something that has flare ups or hard periods our ...

Pretty impressive word isn’t it??? I don’t think it really describes me, although recently I have been called this many times & whilst it is an ...

Drama-Lama…. or just the pure hard reality.

I often don't post the full drama behind an attack, there is a reason for this.  It is scary... it is very hard to go through & most of all, I don't like others to worry.  With the fact that my Brittle Asthma seems to be trying it's hardest to kill me, maybe it's time ...
