Add rainbows 🌈 to my life and brighten my days, in your own special ways, you hold the key to finding me, maybe in the woods becoming overwhelmed in the floods, you paint the skies at night, you bring one hell of a fight, always offering my heart πŸ’“, I may fall apart, the pieces I glue back together, knowing the sparkle will last forever, ambition is the fire, to always inspire, the goals we set, the moments we forget, as we write, we can’t lose sight, of the person we are, the shining star 🌟, to find the good and bring the colour to the page, break free from the cage, stronger that yesterday and looking at tomorrow, may there be no more pain and sorrow, paint the skies, wipe the tears from your eyes, you have done it all, stand tall πŸ₯°πŸ“°πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸ’š #poetry #rainbow #colour #words #monday #poem #positivity #lawofattraction

Thank you Gilly for another fab afternoon and great interview this afternoon. As always I had a wonderful time & I am so grateful to Gilly & BBC Radio Lancashire for you on-going support πŸ’šπŸ“š Last night I was interview by Voice America which was a 30 minute interview, lots and lots of talking but the presenters were so lovely and I enjoyed every minute. The time flew by. Maybe I talk too muchπŸ™ŠπŸ€. I can’t wait for it to be aired mid-March and for the interview to be available to be downloaded via ITunes. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ“–. Thank you for all the love, kind words & support today and the journey leading up to today. I am so very grateful. πŸ’– I vowed to make 2019 a good one and I don’t intend to settle for anything less, there is always more to do, always ways to grow & things to learn. I will be relieved to get Thursday’s hospital πŸ₯ trip out of the way to enjoy this moment & time a little more πŸ’šπŸ“–.

THANK YOU AsdaπŸ₯° we asked to sample your FreeFrom range πŸ˜‹ so we can encourage to do our listeners to do the same and you have blown me away. 7 shopping bags πŸ›. I expected a few small snacks. So wow’ed. Simon and I have a week’s worth of goodies to sample. We loved the chocolate we tasted on air today and we be doing lots more taste tests and giving you all our opinions over the coming weeks. This just goes to prove that there ARE opinions for everyone and the alternatives are pretty damn good in many ways. This is a subject close to my heart πŸ’“ as I miss many of my fave foods and find it hard watching others dig in to them around the table. So, this is why I want to raise awareness and educate our listeners on the massive FreeFrom range available to us. I think it’s fair to say Simon’s opinions of FreeFrom foods have dramatically changed. That Chocolate 🍫 orange bar didn’t touch the sides and the chocolate buttons just β€˜slipped’ into his pockets. Terry’s I think Simon is being swayed from your chocolate 🍫 orange 🍊! You may not have allergies or intolerances but you never know when you will have to cater for someone who does or you may just want to mix up your own diet.. HAPPY eating! We will be talking more about the foods we have sampled over the week, next Friday from 1pm on Chorley FM.

Can’t believe this was a week ago at the last dinner. πŸ’œ we were very lucky to be back in the wonderful venue πŸ’ƒπŸΌto complete the annual conference. Health has been a constant struggle lately. I’ve not really opened up on here about it. I’ve tried to keep being productive, proactive and positive. Events and life in general have become very difficult. I endeavour to always put a brave face on things and keep living as much as possible. To inspire you all to do the same πŸ’š. I’ve had my pre-op today and hopefully this time next week I may have my next path and be able to move forward. I am in tune with reality and know there is no magic wand but I am praying for some relief because symptoms have really reached unbearable. I know the people close to me know how hard things have been getting. So many look at me and think I’m fine.  I am human but I do hope to be an example that despite everything we can still be productive and proactive. Add a smile πŸ˜€ to a dull day and add sparkle ✨ to the dark nights. Thank you for all the love and support during this time! Enough with the tears and rough news and on a more EXCITING note, on Monday I will be interviewed by the CEO of Voice America who broadcast to 140 countries about my book πŸ“– 🌍. I think it’s fair to say, I am a little bit excited πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’š. Tuesday 12th is FAST approaching πŸ“–πŸ’•πŸŒŽ. I am focusing, so much on projects and the future. Praying & hoping for the best. Whatever happens we have to make the future bright ✨. My heart is too stubborn to accept anything less. πŸ’š #chronicillness #lymediseaseawareness #awareness #chronicdisease #reality #book #interviews #dinner #nights #overviews #fightback #fight #stubborn #productive
