2022 Brings New Changes.


I'm currently sat next to my window watching the rain come down heavily wrapped up in a blanket. It sounds ironic but being cosy is all I ever I want to do in life. Since being in my 30s there are a lot of wants for myself in life, I believe it's important that you should treat yourself even if people think it's stupid. You're the person you has to live with yourself and your happiness is the most important thing in your life. Here is what I want to do in life and in general starting in 2022:

Waving Goodbye to 2021.


How is it winter already? Autumn zoomed past us, it was so mild but now we have reached winter it got cold so quickly within a day! Luckily my cat gives me lots of warm snuggles. She has been poorly lately and has now been put on a special diet which she was far from happy about. Now Christmas is days away I can breathe a sigh of relief, although it's only the two of us Christmas still feels extremely stressful this year I promised myself that I wouldn't allow Christmas to stress me out.

Autumnal Mevagissey


We popped to Mevagissey last month after my hospital appointment, I needed a distraction and what better place to go than Mevagissey. We sat down and had a sausage roll and enjoyed the nice chill in the air. I love watching people walk past with their dogs as the dogs will usually come up to us and say hello, animals are the most purest of souls bound to make anyone smile. Speaking of animals I met the most gorgeous cat who let me pet them, they had such a pretty fur coat. I also saw my first Robin of the year chirping away in a bush, I managed to get a beautiful picture of it which you can see below.

Taking Time Out.


This has been sitting in my drafts and I've finally decided to just post it. We are coming to the end of 2021 now, it feels like it's zoomed so fast that I never got to experience the year properly. I was lucky enough to go to a few places and enjoy the sun in the summer but my anxiety has been high. Being able to get vaccinated and have my booster has only helped slightly with my thoughts and anxieties and on top of that I find myself panicking far more than I ever have. My health has been rubbish, it made me feel even worse because I've been working so hard to getting to a good place with my body. 

James and I have been here a few times now, it's one of them places that's not only perfect for taking the kids to burn off energy but also taking in the scenery and rich heritage around you (which you can read about HERE). Once again I had never heard of it but when James showed me I was taken in by the beauty and greenery that surrounded us.

The Mist - E.M.R


A few years ago I wrote a poem called "The Mist" it's something I go back and read because it was the darkest part of my life. I often think about how far I've come and how lucky I am to have a roof over my head and have my life heading in a better direction now than it ever has so I thought I would share it with you all.

I won't lie, summer is the worst time of year for me, I have big flare ups because the heat makes my condition worse, my condition is known as NCS also know as Neurocardiogenic Syncope, it can be a complicated condition as it doesn't affect just one thing it affects many most of the time I'm sleeping or having to rest snuggled on the sofa and it can get very lonely but I make the most of things by playing games I have to review, reading and watching my fav shows or movies but when I'm not doing this we do like to pop out no matter the weather, we want to make the most of the time we have.

One of the most popular places to be lately is Charlestown Harbour, people keep calling it Poldark Harbour and as much as I love the show I will never refer to it as that. Charlestown has always been the place I visit the most, there may not be much to do but its such a pretty little place that has a lot of soul. The tall ships are my favourite things to view especially since seeing them being used in Alice in Wonderland and watching how they shot the end scene on the ships, it's one of them memories you look back on and think I was definitely at the right place at the right time, I got to meet my favourite director Tim Burton and his wife at the time Helena Bonham Carter along with Mia Wasikowska who played Alice.


After spending most of my life in South East London younger me could never had seen herself moving so far away from her friends and family yet now I can happily say I'm living in the place I was always meant to be. This may sound ridiculous to some but I never really felt like I fit in when I lived in London, although I had a lot of friends and everything I could need on my doorstep the one thing I didn't have was the vision of spending the rest of my life there. It took me a while to realise this and even though I moved back to London a few months after I moved to Cornwall I knew it wasn't the right choice and I needed to go back.
I was browsing Tiktok and came across Menacuddle Well, I had seen the waterfall in pictures before but never knew where it was, I asked my partner James about it and he said it wasn't far from us and said we could go together. I was under the impression it would be a trail which I'm not good with due to my condition, I was pleasantly surprised to see a charming little picnic place hidden down a road I would have missed if it wasn't pointed out to me. Menacuddle Well has a rich history like much of Cornwall, it's said to be dated from the late 15th century and underwent restoration in the early 20th century. The Well is situated inside the most dainty chapel you could ever come across and has been kept in great condition, it doesn't look much like a typical Well you would find but it's considered to be very holy, the water was used to heal various illnesses there is also old tale that if someone drops a bent pin into the well then wishes their wish is granted or brings good luck.


Hello as most of you know I'm Elle (L) I'm in my early 30s and have a chronic illness, I have been debating about launching this blog as its been sitting unused for a couple of years now, I wasn't sure what to call it or what to do with it but a few weeks back I made the choice to start living my life to the best of my own abilities, you may say well don't people normally do this and the answer is yes but I have been in such a negative headspace that I needed to do something about it. Having a chronic illness that stops me from doing what I want to most days can be depressing but with the help of my partner I have began to love life again and appreciate the small things. Being stuck in doing nothing due to a pandemic gave me a lot of time to think about things and who I want to be as I grow older, to be honest I just want a nice calm life and to enjoy growing old with James in Cornwall and share it with you all on here!
