Some Weekend Reads & Watch's.

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend. 

I was lucky enough to kick start my weekend perfectly last night, enjoying drinks, funny conversations and of course a bucket load of laughs to really cheer me up. 

When you have Mama and Jacob together you know the night will be an unpredictable, funny one. Those two together, always cheering eachother on to cause trouble. Embarrassing but extremely entertaining. They make the night. 

How truly I lucky I am to have them. 💫 

Thank you all who came last night - Jacob, Mama, Papa, Ellie & Adele! You gave me the dose of medicine I needed.

I am so lucky that my parents enjoying hanging out with my friends & vice versa. It's the best hanging out with both clans. The laughs we share and the memories we create are the best. So thankful. 

There are a few programmes and media reads that may take your interest & which you may want to look at / watch whilst the weather is miserable. 

1. Channel 5; The Story Of Barbara Windsor.

Brushes over Barbara's struggle from the Epstein Barr virus ( glandular fever ). She found herself having to leave Eastenders and bedridden for two years. Before returning to Eastenders but only working as little as possible for the following four years before she was feeling back to her normal self.

2. New! Magazine pages 62-63. 

Is an article on a woman called Lindsay who suffers with Lyme and co-infections. All about the horrible struggles she has fought through over the years. How the viruses effected her body, life and relationships. Please take a read. It's really eye opening and great for raising awareness as sufferers find comfort in knowing their symptoms aren't them going crazy and for the public to understand how awful this disease is and how we must stay smart to the facts, treatments, body checks and testing. 

3. What The Health on Netflix. 

Explores the benefits of eating a more plant-based diet to help & prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Along with shocking facts about health companies behind the scenes dealings, Government involvement and general health advice. Showing real life stories of people chronically unwell with diabetes and so on making massive improvements by adapting more of a plant-based lifestyle and cutting down on the processed goods that were filling their bodies with excess toxins it couldn't handle. 

We all deserve to live life to the fullest, experience happiness, create amazing memories and have the best bill of health possible. 

Knowledge is always power and although sometimes we can feel bombarded by the media with the latest crazes and 'fads' etc. We are unfortunately surrounded by a society that has growing health issues. We all know someone who is effected by chronic illness/disease or diet related health issues. They are subjects we all need to be clued up on to help protect ourselves and our loved ones the best we can. As well as helping people already suffering in the best ways possible.

Thank you for taking a read. 

This is just a quick post my main daily post will be with you later today.

Have a wonderful weekend.
