Hi, I am Ness,

Welcome to my little place in the world. I am a Mother to five sons, Holistic and Alternative Therapist, Writer, Blogger, Fibromyalgia & M.E Fighter, Buddhism & happy hippie smiley person.








I am a dreamer like the girl in "Bridge to Terabithia"

but not a dainty little American blonde child, more a cuddly over 40 British woman with a big smile. I live in my own little world made out of crochet. 


Being a happy Earth Mama with five sons, two dogs and a grumpy tortoise can be a challenge so I blog my journey of trying to find balance in my world. I paint rainbows as I go and sprinkle some love and glitter.  

Life can be so magical.


I have a medical illness called Fibromyalgia so I live my life my way filled with positivity, love and light because life over 40 with Fibromyalgia need not be dull when you have a huge smile, a splash of confidence, a sense of humour and a Masters Degree in Life.


I share my good days, my bad days and my daydreaming days. But I am not a typical parent blogger as I firmly believe my son's personal lives, their childhood and journey are theirs, not mine to share.


I am a chronic illness writer for "The Mighty" the disability, disease and mental illness publication with over 150 million readers. Also I am a chronic illness reviewer with the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network


I am so happy to have you here with me.

about me


I have developed a new hobby for relaxation but my passion is outgrowing my wool supply!! Rather than drown in a sea of crochet blankets, poor as a church mouse as all my money is used up on pretty wool. I have made a little page to sell off my blankets so I can buy lots of new wool and harmony and happiness is restored.


Thank you..
