About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Introduction A little bit about me first ~ I guess that's probably the best place to start! My name is Stefanie, I'm 45, have two teenage children (19 & 17) and a wonderful man who looks after me! I live in rural Lincolnshire and in addition to my kids and my man I have a few chickens . Since my health took a nosedive in 2009 resulting in my diagnosis with Fibromyalgia, I’ve taken to craft and art as a form of therapy, to keep me appreciating the beauty in nature all around us. Fibro is a difficult condition to explain, it has elements of pain, exhaustion and depression, I try hard not to dwell on it now nearly 6 years after my diagnosis although it still impacts my life every day. An article I really like that tries to explain some of our issues is here : http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/wpress/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory/ It is called The Spoon Theory and it led to me having a spoon tattoo! I’ve now decided the time is right to move onto blogging as an outlet for my creativity (such as it is!) and a reminder to keep going xx
