Weekly Update 27th July – 2nd August 2020

General and Reading Update

Hey everyone!

I hope you’re all keeping well.

I sincerely apologise for not being around during the latter half of this week; I am in the middle of rather a large flare up of my illness and the pain and exhaustion are overwhelming. I know you guys understand and that’s why I love you all and this community. I feel I can be myself with you guys. That you will understand without judgment why some weeks I just can’t get around to your blog posts no matter how much I want to. The mind is willing, but the body… the body is so weak. Living with chronic illness and chronic pain daily is pretty taxing… but weeks like this past one… they are the weeks when all I can do is medicate heavily (my doctor prescribed meds in case any one is worried) and try to sleep. It also means that reading becomes difficult too. I did manage to read one book but it took me days upon days where normally it should have been much quicker than that.

I hope and pray that next week will be kinder and that I will be back to reading all of your lovely blog posts really soon.

I miss you my friends.

Take care,

Emer xo

    1. Yes. I have a new little puppy called Tilly. My family surprised me with her. I mean I went to pick her up and made the final call, but they had organised the viewing etc. I didn’t think I wanted a new doggie so soon after the death of my beloved yorkie. I’m still grieving for her…but it’s been good. I like having my little furry companion. She certainly keeps life interesting! Thank you my sweet friend 💙💜🧡❤️💚

    1. Thank you so much Naemi (oh my gosh my tablet just autocorrected your name to anaemia! I’m so glad I noticed 🙈🙈🙈… I mean it likes to call me either ember or emergency so it’s not a great phone lol! 😂😂) But thank you so much for your kindness. I really appreciate it. I’m definitely doing a little better today 💚💛❤️💙💜💖

      1. 😂😂😂 I almost spit out my tea, that’s hilarious! I can definitely relate – my biggest fear is that I will one day hand in a paper that says my name is “name”, because that’s what microsoft word apparently prefers 🙄😂 At least “emergency” has a unique and dramatic ring to it… 😉 Anyway, I’m glad you’re doing better! 😊💙💚💜
