December Link Up

Hey everyone, how are you all? I hope you’re all have a lovely start to December πŸ™‚

Yay! Another link up from the lovely Sheryl over at Achronicvoice and it’s December’s link up 😊 I so enjoy writing these and reading everyone else’s and connecting with people 😊 I just wanted to say that I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas 😊

So here are December’s prompts:-

If you’d like to read about it then click on this link December Link Up. Now I’m going to write about all five of the prompts and I look forward to reading yours 😊 

Recovering

So I’m actually still recovering from this relapse that started in October this year so this prompt is an ongoing one I think at the moment. The most important thing that I do is *listen to my body* as much as I can anyway lol.. we all get caught up and forget that our bodies tell us a lot when it comes to recovering/recovery. 

I’ve been trying to do light exercises, rest and just look after myself wherever I can really 😊 having “Me Days/Evenings” always helps. 

Shopping

Shopping! I love shopping! Since October however I haven’t been out shopping much really, however the other week a really good friend of mine came to visit from Australia and we went to our local shopping outlet for an actual look around (yes retail therapy!!) I wasn’t able to do much walking around due to pins and needles and fatigue but my amazing friend had arranged for me to have a wheelchair so when I got tired or needed a sit down I was able to. She’s such an amazing supportive friend and I feel very lucky to have her in my life. I was also able to enjoy the day and get a few bits that I wanted! It felt good! 😊

Enjoying

I like this prompt 😊 it makes you think about the positives. Even though being off with a relapse I’ve been enjoying quite a lot. The main thing has been my new Bullet Journal that my dad kindly got for me as a get well soon present.. I’ve been Bullet Journalling since 2016 and it’s been the best thing I ever started.. I love it 😊 


Another thing I’ve been enjoying is reading. I’ve never been a massive reader but when my sister gave me one of her books called “The Cosy Teashop in the Castle” I was hooked and then I found the book that in currently reading — I try and stick to one chapter a night lol cause I want to make this book last 😊 the book that in reading is called “A cat caller Alfie” by Rachel Wells. Its such a wonderful book from the cats perspective (if you are a cat lover, you will love this) and I love reading every chapter. 

Reminiscing

This is a very interesting post. I think because when I reminisce sometimes it makes me a little sad because I sometimes think back to before I had MS and before I had a care in the world… However I then turn those sad thoughts into positives.. looking back and reminiscing how far I’ve come and how much I now listen to my body and actually try take care of my body and that makes me feel proud and happy! 

Preparing

Preparing.. this again a great prompt! I’m a planner, organiser and preparer (I don’t even know if that’s a word lol) I love preparing and planning things, I helps me to manage my illness and stay in control (kind of lol) I use my Bullet Journal a lot when in preparing things and I find it so helpful. 

It’s also that time of year and preparing for me is key to limit stress — I find if things are prepared and organised then I feel a lot more relaxed.. so yes all my presents are wrapped lol. 

And that is my December Link Up prompts πŸ™‚ I absolutely love doing these and really love reading others so let me know about your link ups and I’ll give them a read πŸ™‚

    I so enjoyed reading your answers. You look so cozy with your cat. I love cats, but my lungs don’t agree. I had to give my kitties up. I do have my little dog, Dottie. Your bullet journal is very pretty.

    I’m incredibly jealous of how organized you are!! I tried to get into bullet journaling but I just couldn’t do it!! So I’m trying to stick to a regular planner and go from there! Thank you for sharing a little bit into your journey. I hope you are able to get out of your relapse soon and get back into doing the things you love whenever you want! πŸ™‚

      Hey. Thank you for your comment 😊 ah I do have to admit that I sometimes get frustrated if it doesn’t look how I want it to (I can be a bit of a perfectionist and it’s not great to be like that lol) but I do also think that planning has definitely helped me 😊 aw thank you, I’m still making sure I enjoy things, just also make sure that I listen to my body ☺️ xx

    Hello fellow planner/organiser πŸ™‚

    I love planning too and it really helps with stress. It’s been amazing how useful these skills have been for managing my MS. I love the bullet journal….I’m going to look into it further right after this post!

    Hope your relapse passes soon, this time of year brings on relapses and flare-ups for me too. Despite the relapse I hope you have a happy and fun Christmas.
