Liverpool's Cat Cafe


Look at me, posting again, I can hardly believe it myself! It was a couple of months ago now, but my bestfriend and I decided it was time that we visited a cat cafe. Cat's, free drinks, and friends, what's not to love? The way this Cafe works is you pay for the time you're there in 5 minute slots, all drinks are free for the duration of your stay and you can have as many as you want. PURRfect.












I absolutely adore cat's, if you do too and haven't been to one, head on down to a Cat Cafe, you won't regret it!

365 Films in 365 Days - The Catch Up Post

It's been a minute



I’m back! Don’t worry, I know that no one has been sat there eagerly awaiting my next post, but that doesn’t stop me from hoping. It really had been a minute, 6 months worth of minutes to be exact and hopefully I’ll manage to stay for awhile this time. I’m really glad I took a break from blogging, I think everyone should do that every once in awhile. So many pressures come from blogging without even realising them, I would often find myself questioning what I’m posting and wondering why people would care about it, typing countless words only for them to be deleted a moment later. I’ve decided to create my content for myself going forwards, I’m not going to force myself into tight deadlines, I’m only going to post when I actually want to and I’m not going to worry about whether people are interested in everything I post because I can’t please everyone.

A lot has happened since I was last here, and I’m looking forward to sharing that with you in this post and in future posts.

In October my husband and I were sent to The Liverpool Women’s Hospital as we have been trying to conceive for over 12 months and have had no luck. Now you already know the journey I’ve been on with PCOS, and that I’m down a Fallopian tube and to be honest, that’s why they didn’t hesitate to transfer me to a fertility clinic. We attended a few appointments at the clinic and were told that the pro norms ultimately come down to me, which is something we already knew. I don’t qualify to have any kind of fertility treatment at the moment because I am currently above the preferred BMI. Knowing that they wouldn’t help me because of my weight absolutely broke my heart because your size doesn’t determine how much you deserve a child. Everything always comes down to weight, regardless as to whether that’s the cause of the problem, that’s the thing blamed for everything. During our experience at the fertility clinic, we were told it was unlikely that we would be able to conceive on our own because although I’m actually producing more eggs than normal, these eggs aren’t developing fully. I was put on Metformin, which is a drug for diabetes, but apparently helps with ovulation in women who suffer with PCOS. I was also put on something called Norethisterone, which forces my body to have a period every 3 months, I was out on this because I don’t have periods myself naturally. That’s one thing I would love, to have period naturally, now I’m on these pills I’m having the lest periods I’ve ever had. After being given the above medication we were discharged from the fertility clinic, and no I’m here. Still not pregnant. Having the worst periods.

I really am so glad to be back, and I'm already super excited about future posts, but until then ...

Mr and Mrs Barrow





May I present to you Mr and Mrs Barrow!

“Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the great story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” - C.S Lewis

On the 21st July 2018 one of my oldest friends said “I do” to her soulmate and now husband. The wedding was held at the most beautiful venue and was more perfect than I could ever explain, the entire day was as if we were living in a real life fairytale. From the stunning decor to one of the best live bands I’ve seen in a long time. From the beautiful dresses to the gorgeous food. This day absolutely took my breathe away and I couldn’t be happier for Mr and Mrs Barrow.



















Congratulations again to one of my favourite couples

Iceland






Iceland

In January we took a trip to Iceland for our Honeymoon, I’ve not posted for so long that some of you won’t know that I am married so I’ll be sure to follow this up with a lovely post about our wedding day. 

Iceland is full of truly beautiful scenery, lovely locals and stunning wildlife.

I could sit here and tell you his incredible Iceland is from then beauty that is the blue lagoon to the wonders that are the geysers, but I think showing you will be so much easier!








































If you get the chance I would say visit Iceland because it’s truly beautiful and will absolutely take your breath away.
