Getting into the Christmas spirit

Getting into the Christmas spirit

Getting into the Christmas spirit is feeling a lot harder for most people this year.

Hey everybody! Well December has arrived, and we are all reflecting back on the year, while either dreading or getting excited for Christmas.

Christmas gift guide for spoonies

Hey there butterflies! It can be so hard for the disabled, or housebound people to find nice presents to buy this time of year without facing the crowds. I have decided to put together a gift guide of small online shops that I think are great for finding nice presents and I actually shop there too!

Cinema and christmas with chronic illness

Hey everybody Merry Christmas and Blessed Yule!! YESTERDAY I GOT TO SEE ROGUE ONE!!!! (No spoilers) It was amazing we saw it in 3D which I highly recommend because some of the scenes really pop out and you feel more a part of it.
