I have not written a blog for a while but thought today was most necessary to write down how I am feeling and my thoughts for today.
It has been 7 years without me having a seizure today and it was whilst watching ‘Im a celebrity, get me out of here’, the night Cerys Matthews was evicted I think!!
I am not an epileptic – however, its a long story and to cut a long story short, I had a blood clot in the brain which led to lots of different things, mainly being seizures, some every 2-3 minutes at the time and I very nearly was put into an induced coma and nearly died.
So here as I write this today, I am humble in my thoughts and soooooooo grateful for everything around me, my wonderful family, a roof over my head and food on the table to enjoy while still being alive.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for EVERYTHING I have.
Just a quick post for the day – a thought for the day really – be grateful for all the things you have in life rather than focus on what you do not have.
I am so lucky to have my family, a wonderful home and love in it. Lucky to be alive to feel this gratefulness and love.
Have a good day all and look at what you have around you that makes you feel good…
So as was half term last week and to continue the birthday celebrations we went to Dubai!!!
This was our fourth visit there and we went for 4 days, 5 nights…
We have done most of the ‘touristy’ things before, like the desert safari twice and once even did the helicopter ride over Dubai which I think was the most awesome.
This time we went up the Burj Khalifa. Last time we went, we left the day before it opened!!
Amazing views from up there…I read that the best time to up is an hour before sunset, which we did.
Also booked tickets online a month before the day we went up. It’s cheaper that way rather than paying on the day and at least you will be guaranteed tickets for the time you want. That time gets very busy and are normally sold out as most people want to go up at that time.
We stayed up there for about an hour and a half and then saw the sunset and watch it get darker and the street lights eye come on…
We had a fantastic time for all 4 days we were there and my daughter has lived it there since she was 5 years old!!
We didn’t want to leave. The weather was still hot and dry. Around 35 degrees Celsius daily. Still in the 30s in the evenings but didn’t find this too uncomfortable.
Infact I love going out when it’s still warm in the evening. Nothing better!!
Oh well, back to reality now!! Sadly !
