Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Today I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  I still look the same. My mind is willing but my body isn’t always able. Don’t judge people by their age or how they look and presume they’re okay! And if you see me and I’m struggling don’t ignore me! I am still me! Sharon x 22…

Allotment Update 

Due to the weather we feel like the allotment is just starting to grow.  We’ve learnt our lesson with squashes… don’t plant out til Monty says so. That was a very big lesson!! Flowers mean as much to me as fruit and veg and meadows do not just grow! Three sowings later it’s starting to…
