#FeelGoodLinky – October 2017 – A to Z of Me

#FeelGoodLinky – October 2017 – A to Z of Me

It’s time again for the #FeelGoodLinky.  This year is just flying by isn’t it?

This month’s linky is a little bit different.  I’m taking part in #Blogtober17 with HexMum.  She has given us 31 great prompts for posts every day in October.  Today’s prompt is “All about you”.  So today, I’m writing the A-Z of me. 


A is for Additional Needs

I have 3 children with 3 different conditions and their own additional needs.

B is for Blog

Well, you’re here, so I guess Beth in a Box doesn’t need much introduction.  Although this blog is definitely my sixth baby.

C is for Cornwall

Growing up I always felt connected to Cornwall despite never having visited there.  While researching my family history I discovered that a large number of my ancestors hailed from Cornwall.

D is for Dorset

I spent many happy summer weeks down in Weymouth.  Dorset most definitely holds a special place in my heart.

E is for Energy

I lack energy a lot of the time.  However, if I have energy, everyone needs to watch out because I really do have energy.

F is for Family

My family members are my life.  I wouldn’t be able to live without them.  They are truly everything to me!

G is for Genealogy

I love family history.  It started over 10 years ago and I love the thrill of searching through old documents at the County Archives.

H is for Hernia

Thanks to my stubbornness and the 2nd c section I now have a rather large incisional hernia.  I’m currently on the waiting list to be seen by the specialists.

I is for Immune System

I always took my immune system for granted and never really understood how it works and how clever it is.  Since having Enfys (who has 22q and an underdeveloped thymus gland) I have a new found interest in the ins and outs of the immune system.

J is for James

My husband.  The provider.

K is for Kettle

Kettle is my most used word.  “Put the kettle on” is my most used phrase.

L is for Lasagna

I love lasagna.  It’s a true feel good meal that just manages to pick me up regardless.  Mmmm… Comfort Food.

M is for Mummy

I’ve been a Mummy for more than 12 years and I love it.  As hard as it is, it is the most rewarding vocation ever!

N is for Noisy

I wasn’t born with a volume control switch.  I can be ridiculously loud or much too quiet.

O is for Organised

I love to organise things.  Although, the more I organised the more disorganised I appear to be.

P is for Parents

I have great parents.  They did a fab job at raising me and it’s because of them I am who I am.

Q is for Quiet

I like silence.  My house is rarely quiet so when it is quiet I like to make the most of it.

R is for Recipes

I love cooking and part of the fun of being in the kitchen is looking for new recipes to try out on the family.

S is for Stationery

I love stationery.  I will buy a notebook or a pen just because I can.

T is for Trust

I don’t trust people easily but if you are lucky enough to gain my trust then you have it forever,  (Unless you break that trust).

U is for Unicorn

Humph, I love unicorns.  I actually have some great unicorn slippers.  I buy the girls clothes just because they have a unicorn (or two) on them.

V is for Vacuum

I vacuum the house so frequently that it feels like a part of my body.

W is for Weight Watchers

I’m on my 2nd Weight Watchers Journey and I have a long journey in front of me. 

X is for Xerox

I first heard this word in Matilda and it took me years to find out what it actually meant.

Y is for Yawning

I tend to do a lot of this.  And in fact I just started to yawn as I typed the word Yawning.

Z is for Zero

Zero is the number of children I wanted before I had Garreth 12 years ago.


So that was the A-Z of me.  Don’t forget to link up all your health, fitness, weight loss and well being posts below…
