About Me

About Me

 

Hey, welcome to the ‘About Me’ page on my blog. I like to gabble, rant and generally chat about everything fashion, food, fun and all the things that come in-between!

 

My name is Christine and I am a 30 (soon to be 40) something mum of two currently living my best life in Ireland.

 

 

 

I am also mum to my fur baby Barkley.

 

Travel

I like to travel, ride motorbikes and cause mischief and mayhem wherever I go lol! A highlight was going to bike week in Daytona Beach this year (2019) and it was an amazing experience – cannot wait to go back!

Illness

I suffer from chronic illness (fibromyalgia)  which can floor me for days but I try not to let it rule my life – ya gotta keep the home fires burning after all! My condition is managed with the amazing help from my GP but I would love to be medication free.

 

I also struggle with my mental health. This is mainly in part to the chronic pain I suffer day in day out but I love trying to help others cope with the way in which they deal with it so I created the #31daystobettermentalhealth.

 

 

I recently retired from work due to my illness. However, I refuse to let that stop me and I decided to travel as much as I can. I also homeschool my son, Owen, who is a stroppy teen! No, he’s is the best! My daughter, Sophie, is all grown up and married.

It can be a little unconventional over here but that’s the way I like it ……. and I hope you will too!
