Preparing for a Hen Do with Fibromyalgia

I'm not going to lie, I've got an insanely busy few months coming up. As someone who is used to spending a lot of time alone, this is genuinely so different to my normal life, but I'm so happy about it! I did a quick post earlier this year going over some of the things I've got going on this year, so I thought I'd share some posts about how I'm preparing for these with regards to my fibro.
First up I've got two hen do weekends for two amazing bride to be's this year. I am so excited and crazily happy that I've been asked to attend. I've got one in Benidorm and one in Leeds, and they're both going to be jam packed with activities to make it an unreal time. But with this comes a lot of preparation on my end, to make sure I know I can have a fantastic weekend without a dreaded fibro flare. Whilst I'm fully expecting to need a bit of recovery after, I'd like to try and make it through both weekends without a flare up.

A New Year Update

Hello everyone!

I feel like I've been so quiet lately! My blog has not been on my mind much through the Christmas break, which has been perfect really. As much as I love and appreciate writing this blog, I've had the busiest Christmas break ever! It's been nice to be focusing on what I've been doing instead of worrying about getting the right photo to share on Instagram. 

So because of this, I thought I'd do a quick post to update you all on the last couple of months and what I have coming up!

December was my last month working at what was my first proper job after university. The whole month felt so strange, but the timing worked out well as it meant my final working day was everyone's last day for Christmas and I had a nice break before starting my new job! I will seriously miss all my work pals but I know I'll still see them all outside of work

I had a lovely time celebrating Christmas with my nearest and dearest. I did unfortunately end up having a bit of a flare up on Christmas Day, which was so annoying! I was in tons of pain but luckily still managed to have a lovely, chilled day full of food and laughs. 

I've also had loads going on with Dryburn Theatrical Workshop, parties and get togethers which have kept me super busy and been such a laugh. I remember December 2017 I was complaining about having nothing to do, and honestly this time I had something on pretty much every day. It's been really nice getting to know everyone too.

My 2019

So I thought I'd warn you now, it's likely my blog will be quite throughout January. Again, I have loads going on so my focus will be on that, but if I manage to find a spare afternoon I'll write up some posts, but I'm not going to put any pressure on myself to get posts up.

First up, I'm starting my new job! I'm both excited and nervous, and also worrying about the travel as it is a bit further to go, and everyone keeps mentioning snow which I'm praying doesn't come or I will actually cry. It's a bit different to what I used to do, but I think it's going to be really good for me so I'm excited to see what happens!

Secondly, I have my first ever show with Dryburn Theatrical Workshop, where I'm a dancer in our panto Beauty and the Beast! Again, I'm both excited and nervous. I've been trying really hard with this, and I'm not completely terrible which is always good. The first show is on the 17th January, so the week before that is full of rehearsals. I can't wait for the buzz of show week and to have all my friends and family come and watch!

So yeah, January is going to be full of me focusing on my new job and the Panto! I'm hoping I can get a few photos during show week to share with you all once it's calmed down, but like Christmas I'm definitely going to be focusing more on these and taking away the pressure of getting posts up. Hopefully once the show is finished and I'm settled in my new job I'll get a few Afternoon Teas booked in to post about!

I've got so many great things on top of this coming up in 2019 and I'm so excited to share all of that with you once this manic month has calmed down! I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and New Year, I'm excited to get caught up with blog posts again!

Abbey xx
