Happy 2nd Birthday To My Niece

Hi everyone!!
So today it’s my niece, Ciara’s second birthday and I’m just so excited for her! I can’t believe that she has been in my life for two years and I’m wondering where the time is going?!  It doesn’t feel like two minutes since I received a phone call off my mum telling me that my sister had gone into labour, now as much as I was excited I did feel a little anxious. This was a life changing experience, not just for my sister and my brother-in-law but also to both families. We already knew what gender the baby was going to be but I couldn’t wait to find out what the name was going to be. Now the name; there were a few little teething problems with pronouncing ‘Ciara’ as it’s the Irish spelling of Keira like Keira Knightley. 

Ciara, my little love, you are the sunshine in all our lives. That’s your doting loving parents, your auntie, both sets of Grandparents, Great Grandparents and everyone else who holds you dear to their hearts. I love your personality as you bring me love, ki…

Ten Random Facts About Me

Hey everyone!!
I wanted to do something a little different and perhaps a bit more fun for you to read than my usual posts. I’m going to write down a list of ten facts that not many would know about me. 

1. I have social anxiety and this means I get really awkward in groups of people. Even with certain people I know, I struggle so it’s not easy. 
2. I once got in trouble for bursting out laughing when the tutor was talking to the class at college. The member of staff who was helping me had dozed off and suddenly snorted which made me jump hence why I burst out laughing. I felt so embarrassed as everyone turned to look at me. What made it worse, she did it again so I struggled to stop laughing. 
3. I had driving lessons when I was 17/18. The car had mobility adaptions.
4. My favourite childhood book series is the Malory Towers by Enid Blyton. 
5. Once after I had a Hydrotherapy session at the hospital, I was getting into my wheelchair and my elbow had dislocated. I ended up going to surgery a…

What’s A Fandom?

Hi everyone!
Hope you’re all doing okay and enjoying the beginning of 2018?? I can’t believe it’s almost the end of January. Anyway in this post, I want to talk about ‘Fandoms’. For those that don’t know what it is... it’s where say a community of fans whether it being a band, artist, film etc and they kind of group together like a family as such.  Many people think that fandoms are full off crazy, sad and immature people But I disagree. For me, being a part of a fandom has been positive. Yes, there are some crazies out there but you get this in every fandom. I will admit that I am a part of the Backstreet Boys (BSB) fandom and I am glad.  I found myself in this fandom in around 2013 and 2014 during a time where I felt lost, alone and at my lowest. I had been hospitalised twice with a five week space in between so I was on the road to recovery and building myself up again. Without going into too much detail, I started meeting people online who were also fans of the Backstreet Boys. I fel…

What I’ve Been Watching On TV

Hi everyone!
How are you all? I hope your week has been kind to you. My week has been okay, still coughing and feeling tired but I’m much better than I was last week.  As I’ve been laid in bed, it’s given me a chance to watch the things I enjoy on the television. Normally I just watch whatever my mum chooses as I’ll just happily go and watch YouTube videos, if she puts something I’m not keen on.  I’m going to list what I have been watching and they do vary in what they are. I haven’t listed them in chronical order as I couldn’t choose which were my favourites. 
1. Coronation Street 2. America’s Next Top Model 3. Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals 4. Emmerdale 5. The Menendez Murders 6. Stacey Dooley Investigates 7. Jamie’s and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast 8. Cruising With Jane McDonald 9. Brunel: The Man Who Built Britain  10. 30 Inches Tall and Turning 18
Now I know some of the programmes may not interest most people my age but I’m a bit of an oldie at heart. I have grown up watching Corrie and Emmerdale, but …

My Time Off Social Media

Hi everyone!!
You may have wondered where I have been and why I’ve not written a new blog post since 2nd January so here I am to try and explain to you.  On the eve of NYE, I started having a dry throat so I tried to drink as much as I can to help ease it but never thought too much of it. I thought it might be because I’ve spent some time in and out of hot dry buildings and the outside.  Anyway on NYE, I started to feel a little worse for wear when me and my parents went to Asda (my local supermarket). Whilst there, I took some pain relief and as soon as I got home; had a lie down on my bed for about three quarters of an hour. I felt a bit more with it afterwards and managed to get ready for going out to celebrate the NYE with my family. By the end of the night, my symptoms started again and I was ready to go home. I felt proud of myself for staying out and making the most of the rare night out. As per usual we walked our way back home (well I was pushed in my chair) as it’s too difficul…

Welcome to 2018!!

Hi everyone!! 
Happy New Year to one and all!! I truly hope that this new year is going to be kind, fun and healthy for all of us. I don’t know about you but 2017 was a mixture of highs and lows for me. The highs were my niece’s first birthday, my mum’s big birthday, my dads birthday , my sister’s and of course my own birthday. There were the shows and musical events that I went to; Aljaz and Janette’s Remembering Fred Tour and Giovanni Pernice’s Tour, not forgetting the 90’s featuring 5ive and The Pop Festival which had Atomic Kitten, A1, Kevin Simm and Katie Price. Despite my anxieties, we went to Amsterdam for four nights with my parents. I worked hard on my blog, my YouTube channel and my main site; Dinkykts EDS Diaries Facebook page. I won’t go into detail about the not so good in 2017.  I hope to be a more sociable person as due to health reasons, I didn’t see my friends as much as I would have liked. It is definitely harder for me to get to places and for me to feel up to going o…
