Fun with spiralisers

Monday fun! Trying out my new spiraliser! Courgetti! ūü§ó A bit tricky on my RA hands but would be easy for anyone¬†without fine¬†motor skill problems¬†to use. Total food porn satisfaction to watch the courgette spaghetti being made – and so quick too! Initially I¬†had been a bit wary¬†after reading some rare but horrific incidents¬†some¬†have had on the super sharp Japanese blades (obviously myself being more at risk of this) but so far I am still alive! Yay! Continue reading →

RA foodie

Previously I’ve kept my foodie side and RA side a bit separate on here but really RA is a lifestyle that spans not just¬†the¬†illness and medication but politics, society, education, work and food. Food is a big thing in my family, we have always eaten ‘well’ and we can all cook but for 3 years now I have been eating mostly anti-inflammatory foods to give myself the best chance I can.

Happy Anniversary to me!

Happy Anniversary to me!¬†It’s one year since I started this blog out of a very distressing situation at The Last Leg which slammed me and all my disabled comrades in the face with the raw truth of just how ableist our society and ‘reputable’ establishments such as ITV Studios still are.

Kinda ironic given disabled females are amongst the most vulnerable group in society, and even more so; disabled, poor, brown women. ‚účūüŹĹ Continue reading →

Oops I did it again

I booked a surprise birthday dinner for my boyfriend at Vanilla Black restaurant. Something a little bit fancier than our local (but equally fabulous) Turkish restaurant.¬† Continue reading →

Mexico on steroids


Our Christmas trip to Mexico was planned way back in the summer but by the time it came around I was dreading it. And not because Trump says it’s full of murderers and rapists. ūüôĄ

Since I fell unconscious at my birthday dinner in September, I developed a blood infection which for anyone with RA means more than just a few days of antibiotics – more like 2 months of antibiotics. Continue reading →

Chronic Time Travelling

Today I made it out of the house for the first time in 5 days. I was supposed to attend my partner’s family reunion weekender but it was not possible as all of my autoimmune illnesses are at war with each other. Due to this I have also been off my chemo and biological injections for two months and as a result I am exhausted and struggling in physical and mental pain.
