Here’s to a happy and healthy 2016!

I hope you all had a wonderful festive season. I last posted back in November just as Mr B and I went off on our honeymoon to Australia and New Zealand. We had the most amazing month of relaxing, exploring, walking, swimming, eating and drinking. It literally was the holiday of a lifetime. And mostly my energy stayed strong and ME/CFS behaved, more on that in a future post.

We got home early December and were immediately fully submerged in the whirlwind that is the Christmas season, hence the blog silence.

But now with the new year just begun, there is time to sit and breathe again. And I thought I’d take this opportunity to relive some of my favourite holiday moments by sharing some of our photos – a somewhat lazy, on my part, first blog post of the year, I’m easing myself back into reality – but fun for me and I hope enjoyable and uplifting for those of you reading this too. This is just a taster, we have 100s of pictures!

Happy New Year everyone!

      Hi Deborah,
      I see a neurologist privately at the Nuffield Hospital in Brentwood, East London. Is that local to you? I found him through the ME Association.
      Best Wishes
      Jess

    It’s lovely to see all your beautiful pics from your honeymoon and especially to see a photo of you – don’t think I’ve ever seen one before! 🙂 I’m soooo happy to hear you had such a wonderful (and most importantly) healthy time. I loved Australia. It’s an amazing place and I hope to go back there one day soon. Happy belated New Year!! 😀

      Thank you! I’m a bit camera shy, getting better with it! I really want to go back to Australia too, we really loved it. Happy New Year to you too! Hope you’re doing okay. Jx
