This may be news to some of you, but I am an absolute sucker for cartoons; whether they’re made for children or adults. I’m a 26 year old, I swear 😉 but Adventure Time always holds a special place in my quirky little heart. It kept me company for a long time when I was at my most unwell. It cheered me up on my lower days. It made my imagination even more vivid + wild. And for that, I’m incredibly thankful. So here’s my current (and very colourful) collection of AT graphic novels/comics
Is there a particular TV show or film that is extra special to you? If so, what it is and why? ☺️ I’d love to hear from you guys!!
So you might recall one of my last posts: when I actually did something spontaneous. Shock horror, it happened again! This time me and le boyfriend headed off to Petersfield to mooch. We were greeted by an apparent summer festival going on which was a nice bonus! Lots of market stalls, music, a vintage car show. It was VERY busy and VERY warm but I didn’t feel anxious or overwhelmed; I soldiered on and didn’t get grumpy in the heat either.
After that, we decided to head to the coast as it would (hopefully) be cooler 🤞🏻 luckily, once we’d gotten through the traffic, Hayling Island actually had some sort of breeze. HALLELUJAH. We ate ice-cream on the beach. We people watched. We then stared in awe as an eery sea mist/fog started rolling in and we were pretty much certain it was the end of the world. I even heard someone say ‘I bet it’s because of Donald Trump’ 😂
This is becoming a habit now, people! And whilst I still love making plans etc, winging it is pretty cool too 😎
Watch out; there’s a positive progress post about to drop. Brace yourselves.
Yes. I did a thing. A thing that I have barely managed for YEARS.
I WENT OUT TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW 🤯😱🥳
I know. I’m just as shocked as you are right now. Mouth agape and everything. To most people this is just what a social life is, something normal that they don’t even register as a big deal. But for this little spoonie? This little spoonie who’s been ill for nearly NINE years? It’s hugeeeeeeee. I also haven’t crumbled into a heap with payback either *touches wood incessantly* 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 AND when you add into the mix that I’ve struggled with social anxiety since I was a teenager, it’s even more awesome. Both nights were fairly big group things; meals, pub, that sort of vibe. I didn’t freak out. I wasn’t nervous. I rarely felt self-conscious or worried that I wasn’t talking enough. I just let myself be me + enjoy it.
I hope you’ve done something lately that made you proud too!
Hello hello! I have reappeared in the world of blogging 🙂
I’m actually going to be posting about something that happened TODAY rather than leaving it forever and day before getting round to it. Proactive Kels this evening. As my mum had the day off work, we decided to utilise the girly time with a bit of fresh air and some good noms. The sunshine was glorious, if a wee bit on the hot side for little old me and my POTS ridden body. Much sweat. Many heartbeats. ANYWAY. I still enjoyed myself; just working with the hand I’ve been dealt in life.
On the agenda for lunch was somewhere we’ve actually been to before and really enjoyed. It’s called House Twenty8 and is an all vegetarian cafe with plenty of gluten free and vegan options as well. I went for my all-time favourite dish in there: the superfood salad. Beetroot, avocado, carrots, tomatoes, salad leaves and houmous (hummus?) 🥗 Seriously good and crazy healthy. I also had the H3 Immunity juice which consisted of: carrot, apple, lime, ginger and turmeric. Pretty warm and spicy! As for my mum, she chowed down on a veggie gluten free quiche and salad, whilst sipping on a banana, blueberry, strawberry, coconut milk and mixed seed smoothie. Oo la la! And before you ask, of course I have some photos to share! 😉 AND we decide to take a couple of sweet treats home; mine being a gluten free white chocolate cake bar and my mum opting for something called a ‘Wellbeing bar’, which is essentially just a giant sort of flapjack concoction.
I promised you a post about my birthday trip out, so here it is!
As an animal lover, I opted for a day at the zoo, without any hesitation. Me and le boyfriend ventured onwards, with much anticipation and excitement in the air. I shan’t bore you with a detailed itinerary or an exhaustive list of every animal we saw; but instead, it’s all about the highlights and snapshots. Enjoy!
Hello to all you fantastic folk out there 😊 sorry I haven’t managed to post for an absolute AGE. I’ve been pretty busy actually which is something I’m still not used to 😂
I’m currently having a rest day as my body is all screwed up from my birthday zoo trip yesterday. But it was TOTALLY worth it! I’ll likely do a post with some photos soon, but for now, I’m just checking in to say I’m all good (relatively speaking) and will be back soon.
A very positive post today so three cheers for that news! So, Thursday is the day I usually see my amazing boyfriend (I know you’re probably reading this so don’t get too much of a big head) 😉 we had no idea what to do last week, or even a time when we’d be free. Fast forward to midday and we’re sat in his car, still deciding what to do. So we just went for a drive and put our thinking caps on. And where did we end up? The beautiful coast 💙
Our first stop was somewhere for food as I was absolutely starving, bordering on ‘hangry’…not something anyone wants to witness or get on the wrong side of. I googled gluten free for where we were and ta-dah! A new cafe was discovered; and it turned out to be lovely. Earl grey tea with lavender was my drink of choice, even though I’m an avid coffee drinker. A gluten free toastie was on the menu as well. Nomnomnom delicious sustenance.
After we’d filled up on savoury food, I was led to an ice-cream place on the beachfront, guided by le boyfriend. And oh my gollygosh I was not disappointed. I was craving proper ice-cream man ice-cream; classic Mr. Whippy. But this place? This place had FLAVOURED Mr. Whippy options!! Strawberry, mint, chocolate, caramel, banana. And best of all? You could swirl flavours together. I opted for traditional vanilla and, probably my all-time favourite ice-cream flavour: mint. It was all swirly and beautiful and I stupidly forgot to take a photo for proof as I was too preoccupied with stuffing my face.
We ate our sweet treats whilst overlooking the beach and enjoying the glorious sunshine. Oh and dogspotting too because dogs are pure happiness and love. We rummaged around the stony beach to find some shells which were pretty abundant. And two hollowed out (nicer way of sayimg they’d been devoured and digested) crab shells which I found strangely fascinating.
On the drive home, I connected up my Spotify to blast some mostly old school tunes from our school days; cue us shouting along to Mr. Brightside with the windows wide open.
If that’s not an awesome and slightly spontaneous early summer day, I don’t know what is ☀️❤️
