Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Oops spring from yesterday - Blossom on the tree

    Throwback to the time when my dad took me out for a posh discharge day meal but we were late cause I wanted to crush cars in a monster truck instead 👌 also found out crushing cars is a great stress reliever 😂

    Relaxing while I do some colouring from a book a friend got me 😊 about to head over to my sisters to steal her bath and use a bath bomb too! (I seriously own too many for someone who only has a shower 🤷😂)

    Day 7- Do sudokus count? They are puzzle books. Who doesn't love a good sudoku? 😂

    I can't upload photos for some reason but I can say what something pink is around me. 

    Day 8- One of my many bottles of nail polish

    Day 9 (I'll be offline most of tomorrow so doing it in advance-) I tried to make a flower bouquet for myself but it didn't work so there is no photo.

    Day 10 (gonna be offline for most of the day-) My mum still being alive and all the lovely people and support on The Mix.

    @BubblesGoesBoo I just finished this book last week! Such a great book. I really like Bryony Gordon. Her podcasts are great too!

    @Millie2787 this is on my list of books to read too. Hope you're enjoying it :) 

    @Kasa2103 aww thanks for sharing what you photos are! Love what you've put for Day 10. I've just changed your permissions so hopefully you can upload photos now.

    Gift - when I was inpatient my friends couldn't get me anything for Christmas cause contraband and all that shit, so instead they wrote me letters basically saying how much they love me, I kept every one and still read them when I'm struggling  <3

    Today is ice cream day but since I don't have ice cream you can see the cup that once had my reasonably priced slush in it(drank it too quick,  now it's juice. Just imagine it's blue and icy 😂)

    Another memory was 3 years ago today the last conversation I had with NaN was she was convinced the Nurses has been slipping her vodka instead of water in her jug 🤣❤️
